Truro is a town of unspoiled natural beauty near the tip of Cape Cod. There are dramatic sand dunes along the bay and ocean beaches.'The National Sea Shore' has preserved more than 2/3 of Truro's land which keeps the town from developing commercially and allows it to retain the same look it had for the last 100 years. The cottage is located on top of a naturally landscaped sandy dune, which provides everything you need for a fabulous vacation. Beautiful sunsets, private beach, hiking, clamming, low tide walks, fires on the beach, seal and whale sightings and is naturally peaceful.

Other Activities: Dune walks, Kayaking, galleries


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: I am a ceramic artist who lives in Philadelphia. I have three grown children and a part time dog.

Why the Owner Chose Truro:
I bought the cottage after renting it for 11 summers with my children. I wanted to continue using it as my summer home and thought it might not be available to me if it was sold. The cottage was built in the late 1890's and has only been changed in minor ways to increase comfort, without effecting the authentic feel of an original beach cottage with a world class view and natural environment. It is a rare and lovely place to be....and my family couldn't imagine life without it.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
I fist saw the cottage on a dark night in 1989, when I was planning family beach vacation. I couldn't really see the view or much of the interior......but I saw enough to know it was something rare. A setting that would provide an authentic Cape Cod beach vacation.......a place that would encourage us to live more simply and be immersed in this exquisite Bay environment. A ' no shoes needed ' kind of place where Nature displays her best events and all their glory......every single day....rain or shine.
