Truro house description

Newer family home with wonderful views of Cape Cod Bay and Great Hollow. Walk to National Seashore hiking trails. Short bike (or hike) to Long Nook beach, Great Hollow Beach, Coast Guard Beach. Great bayviews from either upstairs or downstairs. (Every night the sunset sky is different, but always beautiful). Fireplace in LR, firewood provided. A nice family home, furnished with mix of new and antique furniture. Wireless Internet,. Washer/dryer. State-of-the-Art home entertainment system, large HDTV with theater surround-sound, 3 zone RF control for stereo system (main floor, top floor and deck), living room, family room, professional keyboard, chlorine-free hot tub, antiques, dishwasher, microwave, convection oven, , all kitchen tools/implements, large gas grill, portable cooler, Hammock surrounded by woods. 3 BR's (3 queens, quality mattresses) beds. Many board games and books for evening fun. Plenty of parking (room for cars and boat trailers)


National Seashore: Most of Truro is comprised of the National Seashore. This federal park extends beyond Truro in both directions. Over 4,300 in acres, it has miles and miles of hiking trails, dirt roads and amazing sand dunes up to 100 feet tall overlooking pristine beaches. There is an entry trail just down the road from the house.

Take a hike (or short drive) up to the 'abandoned' Truro Air Force Station, with its 'ghost town' feel in the neighborhood of deserted officer housing, overgrown baseball field, rusty playground, etc. Take the short and easy walk to the 100 foot sand dune over looking the ocean. It's an amazing place that everyone enjoys seeing.

The trails can also be used to access many of the beaches, although most our guests prefer to get a weekly town beach permit and drive the short distance to each beach. Get another permit to have an evening bonfire on the beach (firewood available at the house)

Bayside beaches: The sunset picture on the main page of our listing is looking across the bay. On a clear day or crisp night you can see clear across Cape Cod Bay to Plymouth and the Sagamore Bridge! Where the distant hill in that photo 'dips' is the 'hollow' in 'Great Hollow Beach', less than a 2-mile walk (or very short drive). A great place to go to picnic while watching the sunset. Just as close in the other direction are the beaches on the ocean-side...Long Nook, Coast Guard, Head of the Meadow, all with 60 to 100 ft. sand dunes. The skies at dusk and dawn are usually fused with awesome light and color...the stuff that has drawn artists to the outer cape for generations. Last season we saw nearly 70 seals basking on a sandbar in the early morning.

Just down the road from the house is a local farm market, a fresh seafood store, and a new place with home-made ice cream, stone-fired pizzas, great coffees (espresso, etc.) and free wi-fi (although our house has that, too.)

Equidistant between Provincetown and Wellfleet: Both Wellfleet and Provincetown are about the same distance from the house...about 10 minutes (or less) by car. Wellfleet is less rural than Truro, with a small downtown and some great family seafood restaurants.

Provincetown is where the days and nights are alive with throngs of visitors and locals. There are many shops and excellent restaurants, a very active theater community, rentals for boats, kayaks and bikes. The art gallery scene in 'P'town' goes back generations and the studios are well known throughout the art world. Several venues have live music of different types. And, of course, there are the famous dance clubs and other bars.

For kids, there are whale watches, fishing, and the trip up Pilgrim Monument, the tallest granite structure in America. Dedicated by T.R. Roosevelt, this year it's 103 years old. There's the Trolley tour, the Provincetown Ghost Tour, the famous Whale Watch cruises (if you haven't done this you should !)

                  On one of the higher hills in Truro, equidistant between the bay-side and the ocean-side. A 30 mile view over Great Hollow, looking across the bay to Sagamore and Plymouth. The National Seashore hiking trails can be accessed down the road. Great also for biking. Truro is the most rural town on the Cape, but is a short drive from Provincetown, a well-known resort with art galleries, many restaurants, whale watches, charter fishing boats, nightclubs, film festivals, theater, etc. At the end of the day, return to Truro. Have a cocktail watching the sky turn colors over Cape Cod Bay. Relax in the outdoor hot tub (chemical free, ozone-based, producing oxygen bubbles not chlorine foam!). Watch dozens of seals play in the water at Truro beaches.... Have a beach bonfire at night (permit required, easy to get).

                  Other Activities: Winter cross country skiing on National Seashore Trails. Near art galleries, shops, restaurants, museums, theaters and galleries of P'town.

                  Golf: Truro Public Golf Course nearby. Great ocean views, a fun course near the Truro Lighthouse.
