More Magical Every Year!

  • 5 of 5

The GEM still has our hearts after all these years. We can't imagine staying anywhere else on Cape Cod. The weather may be gray or bright but the GEM always delivers exactly what we need for vacation fun, restoration of the soul and pure joy. It's like coming home every year. Plus Mariellen is the most exceptional host, she is gracious and generous with a true "My home is your home" philosophy. You can't go wrong with booking a stay at The GEM. Every year is special, every time is different but in all of the best ways!

A true Gem

  • 5 of 5

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.

What a wonderful retreat! And what a marvelous location!

  • 5 of 5

This Truro cottage has it all - great views, great space - and every possible kitchen implement you could want! Plus lounge chairs, beach chairs, linens for ourselves as well as old towels for our dogs' use. Absolutely nothing has been forgotten.

The Gem is truly a gem.

  • 5 of 5

The Gem is a very lovely cottage. It is situated on the beach of Cape Cod Bay in a beautiful, tranquil setting. Mariellen has provided everything one needs and has furnished the home artfully. All you have to do is bring in your groceries and relax. We are looking forward to another visit.

PERFECT spot for two.

  • 5 of 5

This place, The Gem, is probably my favorite place in the world. It's the highlight of my year, the thing that keeps me going through the long, dark winter. The sense of peace is incredible; the breeze, the sound of the waves, the beautiful light. There's nothing I would change about it. As long as you bring your groceries with you, there's no reason to leave and you won't want to! The Gem is comfortable, clean, private and beautiful, everything you could possibly want. Mariellen has taken pains to refine the space over the years, creating marvelous outdoor spaces, and soothing indoor spaces. Every time we go, it's even better than the year before. No cookie cutter decor, either. Everything here has been created and placed with care and thought. The bed is comfortable, the linens and towels high quality. Honestly, the photos don't do it justice. Booking with Mariellen is easy, and she's a very responsive and respectful host. If you're looking to experience the beauty of the outer Cape and the Cape Cod experience, you can do no better than The Gem.
