Perfect in every way!
The Gem was a perfect place to stay on our long weekend on the cape. The beach, the cozy cottage, the views, the beautiful artwork by Mariellen Serena, all made for a wonderful few days. Can’t wait to come back.
Delightful cottage on the beach, easy access to Ptown.
Cozy and charming cottage on the beach. Great way to unwind. We brought our dog for the week after Labor Day, when there were fewer tourists. Mariellen has thought of just about everything. The cottage is small, but perfect for a couple. We spent our days at the beach either outside the door or on the nearby National Cape Cod Seashore. We look forward to staying again, even in the cooler off season.
My 9th year at The Gem
When someone returns year after year to a place, it says it all. The Gem is exactly as pictured and described and is perfect for one or two people. I think it is exactly what a beach house should be - spotless, quaint, fun and comfortable - not some fancied up, chic interior where you are afraid to sit. The cottage is well constructed, clever in design and everything you could want for a great stay is at your fingertips. It is directly on the beach and you can see beautiful sunsets from the new deck, the living room or bedroom. The huge outdoor kitchen with grill is such a great idea and I love the huge outdoor shower. The neighbors are respectful of other neighbors and I have never had an issue with noisy gatherings. The bus stops directly in front of the cottage and it is an easy 5-10 minute ride into P-town which means you do not have to pay $20 to park. Mariellen has another property available for rental - check out 120195. Larger than the cottage but just as well appointed and comfortable. Lastly, Mariellen is a pleasure to work with, always available and helpful. I look forward to seeing her every year.
Thank you, Leigh, for mentioning The Mayflower House!
As popular as The Gem is, if you are planning to vacation with friends or family The Mayflower House may be the ticket. Located 1 mile down the road in Provincetown it sits high on a bluff with fabulous ocean views and deeded beach access across the street. It is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, eclectically designed house, that sleeps 6 comfortably.
You can view this house on homeaway.com using the Mayflower House search number: 120002 .
Or simply contact me through the Gem site (120195) and I will send you the link.
Here's an idea... keep The Gem for yourselves and rent The Mayflower House for the family!
Truly A Gem
This was our second time staying here and it surely won't be our last. You have privacy, comfort, and all the amenities that you could ask for. The location is fabulous and the cottage is just lovely. I won't stay anywhere else down the Cape - only the Gem :)
A true Gem
The Gem is a great place to enjoy the Cape and P-town. It is just south of Provincetown, close enough, but away from any crowds. The Gem is funky, fully functional, and a beautiful place to stay for 2. We went whale watching, which was easy from this location. We enjoyed sitting on the beach, walking on the beach, and sunsets over P-town. It is close to several National Seashore entrances. It is highly recommended.
A truly charming beach cottage.
We love the Gem and plan to return each summer. The cottage is perfectly situated on the beach in Truro. The grounds are beautiful and spacious, and the cottage is artfully decorated and equipped with everything two people would need for a relaxing and uplifting stay.
