Truro cottage description

2 bedrooms, pullout couch, trundle bed, sleeps 6; clean and inviting

Our quiet, comfortable get-away cottage is perfect for couples and families with children of all ages. Owned and loved by the same family for 50 years, used regularly and well maintained. On bay side of a tranquil, historical whaling village, the cottage is in an idyllic sunny setting and short walk to Fisher Beach which guests say is one of the most beautiful on Cape.

A refurbished kitchen with a dishwasher and a convection microwave speed up meal prep/cleanup. Also a pass through bar top area to the living room is perfect for setting things up or just being closer to the action. The kitchen and living room have 9 ft ceilings and ceiling fans to keep the cool evening air flowing.

Friendly warning, contact us early. We have many repeat renters and are usually fully booked by Christmas.
See More Details for many addtional details and features.




Relax in the living room easy chairs and gaze out the picture window on a fresh-water marsh and an undeveloped sand dune that abounds in wildlife and glows golden with the sunset. The porch with windows on 3 sides and ceiling fan make relaxing evenings and the very well equipped kitchen makes meals easy. The patio has BBQ gas grill, picnic table with umbrella and relaxing chairs for soaking up the sun. Walk 200 feet to the top of a dune for a breathtaking view of Cape Cod bay or walk to a magnificent bay beach perfect for swimming, fishing and beachcombing. The Pamet River harbor and its boat launch is a 5 minute ride away.

Close to Beautiful Bay Beach and quiet trails: A lot to see and do close by. Our guests call Fisher Beach with its high dunes and calm beach, a must see on the Cape. Walk out our door to the town park trail around a sand dune and marsh with dramatic views. Or, just go up the dune road behind us to see the sweep of the Cape and the Pilgrim Monument. Walk 1/4 mile to the right on the beach to the Pamet River inlet jetty and explore the seashells and sandbars at low tide. Walk 1/4 mile to the left on the beach and see the view that Edward Hopper saw when he painted his beautiful Truro lansdcapes. Take a five minute ride to the sheltered small boat harbor. Borrow our canoe and paddle the Pamet River, a quite meandering stream the starts at the Atlantic and just about bisects the Cape. Take the Cranberry Bog trail on the National Seashore that offers fantastic views of the Pamet and an historic area of an old cranberry bog. A short drive to the tip of Cape Cod is world famous Provincetown: great for food, extensive trails for walking / bicycling, National Seashore programs, whale watching tours, beach dune tours, extensive art, clothing and jewelry shopping and night life.

Great for relaxing family fun: Do you play UNO?...Or is Boggle or Scrabble more your style? When you’re ready for a rest, we have many board games, card games and puzzles designed to keep kids busy. Also, there is a library of adult novels, local historical books and children books. There are 3 comfortable recliners for just stretching out. Don't forget the big box of beach toys kept at the top of the stairs in the attic or the 3 adult bicycles in the shed. The beautiful Truro town library is a short ride to the north side of town. It has an extensive children's section and many activities. Next to it is the new children's playground - Panther Park - build by town volunteers. For a little adventure, climb to the top of the historic Cape Cod Lighthouse and see the displays about this famous structure that was saved from destruction by moving it back from the eroding cliffs. Don't forget the Highland House museum, a turn of the century boarding house with many interesting artifacts about life on Cape.

Something for everyone: Golf / Vineyard / Spices / Pottery / Art instruction. Truro has so much to offer, a week is hardly enough. Did we mention golf? The Highland Links Golf Course is the only golf course (we know of) that is located around a lighthouse. It's a rather spectacular setting and easy to get to from the cottage. The Truro Wineary offers wine tasting and the Altantic Spice Company has racks full of spices, herbs, teas and all sorts of tasty things. Truro is also the home of Jobi Pottery, famous for its glazes and fanciful beach scene designs and the Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill with workshops in painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, video, and writing.

                      Owner info

                      Why the Owner Chose Truro:
                      In 1965, my parents were looking for a summer rental but this cottage fit their needs so well, they bought it. I have grown up walking the beach and exploring the dunes around Truro and Provincetown. Even with the development of almost 50 years, the area around the cottage has maintained its charm and casual comfort.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      The cottage is a small piece of old Cape Cod. It's residential location and inviting floor plan have always reduced our stress and created wonderful memories. It is surrounded by the natural beauty of the area with a fresh water marsh across from the front yard that is a haven for birds. We keep binoculars and identification books close by (and available for your use) because we never know when a hawk, owl, or heron will visit. We love to share our knowledge of the area and point out special spots that will help make you want to come back again and again.
