This charming Cape Cod cottage is located in a quiet Truro bayside neighborhood. Situated on 1+ acres, the property features hammocks under the pines, large wrap around deck overlooking gardens and grape arbor, and outdoor shower. The cottage has been completely renovated and includes 2 bedrooms (1 queen bed, 2 twin beds), full bath, kitchen, and living room, on main level and 1 bedroom (1 queen bed) and hang out room (pull out couch) on lower level. Located 1 mile from Corn Hill Bay Beach, walk to Castle Hill Arts Center, 2.5 miles to beautiful Ballston ocean beach. 10 miles to Provincetown, 5 miles to Wellfleet.
We traveled with our three kids 19, 15, and 12. Truro has been our vacation destination forever- but this year we didn't get our usual house. It felt like a gamble to choose something we had no knowledge of so we all had our reservations. We were not disappointed!! Unlike other rentals- this one is just as cute as the pictures indicate (no false advertising!). The owner was easy to contact and responsive to our questions and clarifications as our rental date approached. The cape house was pleasant, cozy, inviting and comfortable for the five of us. The large basement gave the kids a place to "hang out", the central location made it easy to get to the beaches, restaurants, and other places. Having wifi was a real plus since we all can't seem to travel without our laptops and internet hungry gadgets anymore (sigh). And cable tv/DVD was a plus on those evenings when we just wanted to crash or watch a ball game. Everyone's favorite feature was the outdoor shower! The house in a very private, wooded area near the baseball park. Our only wish was that linens and towels would be provided- we could have easily washed them in the provided washer/dryer so that they were ready for the next renters. We would recommend this place to anyone looking for a great home-base in a fun area.
The house was all we could have hoped for! It was recently updated with fresh paint, new floors,etc. A great private spot with hammocks among the trees that allowed us to relax - and yet close enough to Truro and P-Town and some great beaches! It was great to go out onto the ball field and play some ball and let the kids run around.
We recommend it highly ! !
