Property description

This classic Cape Cod cottage, with ocean views, sits on 1.5 wooded acres, and is walking distance to the Truro’s famous dune beach. It’s the perfect place to unplug and get back to nature.

(Please realize the pictures do not do the property justice, thank you).

Vacationers have three rooms for sleeping: a large master bedroom, with an attached half-bath; a second bedroom with twin beds; and a third with a full bed. There is a large combined living room/dining room, and a reasonably appointed kitchen. There is both an indoor and simple outdoor shower. There’s a working fireplace, if the weather should turn chilly.

Also, please note that the home is clean and fully functional, but is quite rustic. It has a lot of small antiques and tchotchkes all around. The floors are well worn, and the furniture and appliances are older. It’s best for a single family, couples or small group of friends, and not suited for children under age 10.

The wide porch is great for morning coffee or sunbathing, while surrounding woods make for a private getaway. Beaches on the ocean and bay side offer plenty of options.

There’s no Wi-Fi at the house, but that’s available at the local library (and a few local businesses). At the current time, we have no laundry facility on site either.

If you are looking for a quiet, cozy place to unwind – our home will make a great stay.

Do not hesitate to contact us with questions. We want your stay to be the best.

Halfway between P-town and Wellfleet, Truro is the gem of the outer Cape. You can enjoy fine dining, nightclubs and street life in either of the larger towns, head to the drive-in for a movie, or just stick with the local farm stand and ice cream parlor and enjoy the quiet.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1970

About the owner: I am a travel writer and resident of Houston, Texas, but I grew up on the East Coast and have spent summers on the Cape my entire life. When people ask me my favorite place in the world, the answer comes easy: Longnook Beach.

Why the Owner Chose Truro:
The house belonged to my mother, who was an artist and antique collector. She had a unique style, which continues to be reflected in the decor of her old summer home. Today, my brother and I share the property and rent it when we cannot be there. It's one-of-a-kind.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Built on a hill, grandfathered within the National Seashore, the house is walking distance to the beach. It's a charming, unpretentious spot that remains blissfully undeveloped. We don't even have WiFi (but the pizza place 5 mins away does, if you can't unplug for long).
