Property description

The cottage is located on Truro Center Road near the top of the hill. It is not on Rte 6 as the google map may make you believe.
Spring is a lovely time of year here on the Cape with the lush emerald green of new grasses, the fresh spring flowers, the return of the Hummingbirds, and, of course, our rates are lower. It is a time of freshness and renewal.
We have wrap around oceans here, so you will rarely stray far from the Atlantic Ocean, Cape Cod Bay or the Pamet River estuary. Truro has some of the most beautiful beaches on the Cape--Ballston, Longnook, Head of the Meadow, Corn Hill. All the beaches are about five to ten minutes away.
Our guests have called this a 'fairytale' cottage, but we call it the Humming Bird cottage. Most people wait until July and August to come to the Cape, but May and June are magical times too.
Sitting just below a pretty barn, the cottage is nestled in a leafy dell with verdant trees enfolding it. If you like, you can eat your meals on the deck. There is an umbrella, table and chairs and a gas grill and a garden with flowers and, more often than not, young rabbits hopping around.
The cottage has high speed internet and HD TV, a new washer and dryer, and a gas grill on the patio. The living room has a Chickering piano, original art on the walls, and a dining area overlooking the patio. There is a summer blue bedroom with a queen-size bed, big closet, and a kitchen with a pantry. There are whisper quiet ceiling fans in each room, and an air conditioner if needed.
Wellfleet and Provincetown are a ten minute drive for memorable dining, shopping, and live theater. The Julie Harris Stage in Wellfleet, the Provincetown Theater, and art galleries and museums are less than 15 minutes away by car or the nearby Flex bus. Golfing at the Highland Links overlooking the Atlantic is like golfing in paradise. Nearby, are the historic Cape Cod Lighthouse and the Truro Historical Museum.
The School for Arts at Castle Hill is right around the corner if you would like to take a class for part of the day while you are here. So you can choose to rest and relax on our pristine beaches, and at the same time, enrich your soul.
There is a good choice of restaurants in Truro. Wellfleet and Provincetown, and some overlook the water. Enjoy!

For golfing, Truro is famous for The Highland Links which overlook the Atlantic Ocean. For cultural activities Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill abounds in the visual arts, writing, music, art shows and art auctions, lectures by prominent writers, live music. A free harbor cruise called 'Paint the Town' in September during the Provincetown Schooner Regatta is phenomenal, and they hold a Dance Festival in October. See our website for catalogue. Fisherman love this time of year for surf fishing. The sea is magnificent.
