One of the best things about Even’tide’s five-acre wooded property is its location. There is direct access to the Cape Cod Rail Trail bike path and Cape Cod National Seashore’s Marconi Beach is a one-mile walk away. The property is family-operated and built with extra care given during the building process to ensure quiet within the rooms.
Motel rooms are offered in a variety of sizes and configurations. In addition, the rental cottages that dot the property range from a one-bedroom (two-person) cottage, to a four-bedroom, four-bath house. Maximum occupancy in the largest cottage is 10 people, including babies. All cottages have outdoor barbecues and picnic tables, cable TV (with HBO), full tiled baths, carpeted living areas, plus full kitchens and outdoor decks.
Guests have access to the motel’s 30-foot by 60-foot heated indoor pool, attached private sun deck and large playground. A basketball court, five-hole mini-golf, horseshoe pit, badminton, volleyball, pool table, shuffleboard court and ping pong table are also available. Note: Some of the cottages include cleaning services and all linens; others do not. Be sure to check the accommodations section of the website before booking. Open May through October, with weekly rentals only from mid-May to mid-September; three-night minimum during the rest of the season.

We stayed 3 nights in an upstairs room with a king-size bed. The room was roomy and clean with plenty of shelf space. We thoroughly enjoyed the indoor heated swimming pool and the warm shower by the swimming pool. We were surprised not to hear loud traffic, as Rt 6 is beside the property. The location gave us easy access to most of upper Cape Cod. The front desk staff was very friendly and made us welcome the whole time we were there.
My husband and I spent three nights (Aug, 23-25, 2019) at the Even'tide Motel and really enjoyed our stay there. We stayed in the main building on the first floor and it was delightful to be able to wake up and sit outside and enjoy the beautiful surrondings, Our room was very comfortable, clean and quiet. Enjoyed seeing so many families there enjoying bike riding on the beautiful trails. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. Coffee and tea were available every morning in the lobby. Will definitely stay there again while in Wellfleet!
