About Us

  • Dick and Sandy on the water

Sandy & Dick Nicholson came to Wellfleet, Cape Cod after living and working in: New York City; Northern NJ; Eastern France; and Pittsburgh, PA. We have three grown children, four grandchildren and two Beagles (Bunker & Kali). Dick has been coming to Wellfleet, Cape Cod all his life on annual vacations with his family. We even honeymooned on the Cape in March 1963!

Dick, a CPA, worked for 20 years with Coopers & Lybrand (now PwC) then became CFO of several software startups and most recently was CFO of a Boston pharmaceutical startup. Sandy, in addition to raising 3 children and moving hither and yon, owned a specialty apparel store in Fox Chapel, PA for 17 years.

In 1995 we decided to take "early retirement" and move to Wellfleet where Dick had inherited property …and build our dream house. Noted Pittsburgh architect Jeffrey Kline designed Oyster Cove and Wellfleet Custom Builders built it. The home incorporates polished concrete floors with radiant heating and other energy conservation principles. We took part in the construction process ("lumping",painting, landscaping and cleanup) during the 12 months from start to finish in 1997. In 1998 we decided to open Oyster Cove Bed & Breakfast. We live in Wellfleet year round and enjoy the interesting guests who come here to share this special place in the world.

Come and visit us.
