Property description

We hope that you will enjoy our 150-year old Provincetown home on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. One of the most sought after seaside locations on the East Coast. Whether you want to walk the beaches of Cape Cod National Seashore, curl up in the home's bay window to read or people watch, or dive into the abundant arts, shopping and nightlife options - in our home you have your choice.

Our typical New England Captain's house is featured on postcards, in local history books, and in many paintings. Our family has vacationed in Provincetown for a generation, and the house is very much the same it has been for at least half a century. However, we have just finished a complete refurbishing of interior, but preserving the original structure, antiques and art. (This is NOT your typical rental.)

Our home consists of 2300 square feet including three bedrooms with fine linens, dining room seating for 10, living room with bay window and library alcove, 1. bath (one w/ shower + powder room) and fenced yard and garden. Parking in back of house for 1 car or 2 compacts (tight squeeze). Sleeps 3 couples, (2 bedrooms with double beds, one with 2 single beds); bedroom with twin beds also good for kids with floor space available for two cots (we have.) Amenities include beach towels, lending library, 2 adult bikes; side garden with cafe table and chairs perfect for relaxing and people watching while enjoying a cocktail.

Located in center of Provincetown, we are one block from the town hall, town beach and harbor, a 10 minute drive from National Seashore beaches, as well as miles of paved bike and hiking trails. Arrive by plane at Provincetown Airport or by ferry (dock 3 blocks from house) from Boston. Happy to provide additional photos and details just call.
