About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Full Baths, Sleeps 8.

Artist/writer's home in upscale private community in Truro. Spacious upside-down home (living area on second floor) with an open layout takes maximum advantage of views out windows and sliding doors. It's a 3 minute walk to one of Truro's great, safe family beaches, Great Hollow Beach (along a paved road--no need to negotiate steep steps to the beach). Major remodeling was done in 2009. The fully equipped kitchen has granite counter tops, ceramic floor, gas range, new cabinets, microwave and refrigerator. The living room has laminate wood flooring, and lots of space for relaxing. New couches, new HD TV in 2014. Large, light and airy bedrooms. Three full baths. The master bedroom suite has a sliding glass door to a first-floor deck, perfect for enjoying your coffee while you watch the sun rise.

Enjoy dining al fresco or just relax with a beverage on the large wrap-around deck off the living room. The expansive living room also affords sunset and sunrise views. Amenities include secure wireless Internet access, HD cable TV and DVD/VCR player, gas and charcoal grills.

It's an easy 3 minute walk to Great Hollow Beach and a 10 minute walk to Corn Hill beache on Cape Cod Bay. Close to National Seashore attractions and Great Island. Uncrowded and spectacular Truro town ocean beaches and cliffs. All of Truro's ocean shoreline is within the National Seashore, so you can enjoy nature to its fullest, or learn more about this 'bare and bended arm' at the Provincelands Visitor Center. Great surf fishing for stripers and blues in the ocean or bay.

We love our Truro home--you will, too!

About Marvin or Anne Cohen

Marvin and Anne spend 4-5 spring and fall months in our house every year. Marvin is an artist and writer, and Anne is an editor and a maker of things. We have been coming to the Cape since 1968.

Marvin or Anne Cohen purchased this house in 2000

Why Marvin or Anne Cohen chose Cape Cod

After 15 years of a dune front house in Eastham, we decided to move to Truro to take advantage of its low population and proximity to Provincetown.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved the house and the peaceful area. The views and landscapes are beautiful. Being able to walk to the beach is a real plus. We also loved being so close to Provincetown and being able to "pop over" there quickly whenever we felt like going. We've been coming to the Cape for many years, but have always stayed in Orleans. We loved it there, but staying here in this lovely house, in this beautiful area has given us a whole different view of Cape Cod.

Perfect for family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This is our fourth year staying in this home and I just can't say enough about the experiences we have had here. There are just four of us but there would be plenty of room for larger groups/families.

The open layout on the second floor is wonderful for our family to spend time together. My kids love hanging out in the hammock on the deck during the day and at night to look at the stars. We eat in more than out because our kids are still relatively young, and the kitchen has everything you need from spices to cookware to serving pieces. There is usually a nice breeze when the windows are open on the second floor and the fans the owners leave in the bedrooms circulate the night air for great sleep! The owners are conscientious and very responsive. My kids are already talking about when we return next year, always a sign of a great vacation!

A great vacation home!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were three generations of a family from 5 to 85! We all found this home to be delightful. The beds were comfortable and there was ample space for everyone to do their own thing! There is a fun hammock on the deck, an area for folks to watch TV and another area for conversing at the same time. Outdoor eating space and two nice grill set ups or a great kitchen. The house is just wonderful. The location is VERY good also a fast bike ride to a wonderful market and a very short walk to the beach. Save the money on beach parking you won't need it.

This is a splendid location to spend a summer vacation week!

A comfortable, airy home, 4 minute walk from beach

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect home and location for a family with young (or any aged!) children.

We walked each morning to a beautiful bay beach, grilled and relaxed on the expansive deck, and loved being 10 minutes from Provincetown and ocean beaches. We enjoyed the large open sitting area (comfortable furniture) and a well-stocked kitchen.We hope no one reserves the week we want to come back!

Truro is the least populated town on Cape Cod. Great swimming awaits in the Bay or in the Truro fresh water ponds--they are uncrowded treasures! Tour the Truro Vineyards, climb up the Highland Light (Cape Cod Light), golf at the Highland Links Golf Course--the oldest links course on Cape Cod! Have an evening bonfire on the beach (permit required). Provincetown attractions and Wellfleet galleries are both close-by. Ride bikes on the Cape Cod Rail Trail, go on a whale watch to see humpback whales, spot seals from the beach. Walk the trails at the close-by Wellfleet Bay Wildlife sanctuary.

The Stop & Shop grocery store is 10 minutes away in Provincetown. A farm stand and fresh fish market are close to the intersection of Rt 6 and Great Hollow Road. there are many close-by, great restaurants, for families or fine dining. Enjoy concerts on the Truro Green.
