Wellfleet Honeymoon Special

Wellfleet is a great place to vacation. Chez Sven’s Seagull Cottage offers total privacy. Put the two together and you’ve got the makings of a perfect honeymoon. Last month I designed a five-day honeymoon special for two people who want to relax and be totally alone. Three couples have already signed up.

Chez Sven’s Honeymoon Special includes a bottle of French champagne, biensur. Since we are a green bed & breakfast, every honeymoon couple will begin life together with a copy of Naturally Clean from the crew at Seventh Generation. The final treat had to be even more unusual. I settled on a spa package so the newlyweds can fully indulge their senses. My choice went to Osea, whose amazing products are synthetic-fragrance free and come from the ocean. Our philosophies seemed a perfect match.

One of our honeymooning couples is getting married at a town hall in Germany, celebrating at Chez Sven, then having the wedding in the United States. That is almost exactly what Sven and I did. We had our wedding in Sweden, then got married officially in Wellfleet, on Uncle Tim’s Bridge. (See above photo for the view looking across Duck Creek.)
