The Granlunds welcome you to Wellfleet and to The Mainstay Motor Inn. Many of our visitors remark that at a large chain motel you don’t get the same personal attention that you get at a family run, owner-operated facility. At the Mainstay Motor Inn, there are three generations of Granlunds to make sure your Wellfleet vacation is comfortable and memorable.
…Our trip to the Outer Cape continued. Driving through Eastham we finally arrived in Wellfleet. We first decided to get accommodations at a Cape Cod motel for the evening, and headed straight for the Mainstay Motor Inn in South Wellfleet. This motel is very close to some of the best beaches of the Cape Cod National Seashore. While in town, we visited the Wellfleet Bay Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary and enjoyed our time on the Main Street of what has become Cape Cod’s “Art Gallery Town.”
The next day we only had to drive through Truro before arriving in Provincetown to begin our whale watch adventure….
The Mainstay Motor Inn is in the perfect location to stay close to all the best of what Cape Cod has to offer. It is only a short drive to Provincetown where you can embark on a world famous whale watching cruise. The moors and scenic vistas of Truro are located in our neighboring town. Wellfleet is know as the “Art Gallery Town” and for good reason. During the summer season, there is a gallery holding an opening practically every week!
The Cape Cod National Seashore, with it’s sand dunes and majestic ocean waves, are only a short bike ride away. Watch the sun rise out of the ocean and then, later on, travel to the bayside and watch it set into Cape Cod Bay!
This is exactly the spot referred to by Henry David Thoreau when he said:
“a man may stand (here)…and put all of America behind him.”
You can find no better location for sun, sand and surf and the freshest seafood anywhere.
