Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms(all queen size beds), 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 6

Contemporary family home with wonderful views of Cape Cod Bay and Great Hollow. Very short walk to National Seashore hiking trails. Short bike (or hike) to Long Nook beach, Great Hollow Beach, Coast Guard Beach. Great bayviews from either upstairs or downstairs. (Every night the sunset sky is different, but always beautiful). Fireplace in LR, firewood provided. A nice family home, furnished with mix of new and antique furniture. Wireless Internet,. Washer/dryer. State-of-the-Art home entertainment system, large HDTV with theater surround-sound, 3 zone RF control for stereo system (main floor, top floor and deck), living room, family room, professional keyboard, chlorine-free hot tub, antiques, dishwasher, microwave, convection oven, , all kitchen tools/implements, large gas grill, portable cooler, Hammock surrounded by woods. 3 BR's (3 queens, quality mattresses) beds. Many board games and books for evening fun. Plenty of parking (room for cars and boat trailers)

National Seashore: Most of Truro is comprised of the National Seashore. This federal park extends beyond Truro in both directions. Over 4,300 in acres, it has miles and miles of hiking trails, dirt roads and amazing sand dunes up to 100 feet tall overlooking pristine beaches. There is an entry trail just down the road from the house.

Take a hike (or short drive) up to the 'abandoned' Truro Air Force Station, with its 'ghost town' feel in the neighborhood of deserted officer housing, overgrown baseball field, rusty playground, etc. Take the short and easy walk to the 100 foot sand dune over looking the ocean. It's an amazing place that everyone enjoys seeing.

The trails can also be used to access many of the beaches, although most our guests prefer to get a weekly town beach permit and drive the short distance to each beach. Get another permit to have an evening bonfire on the beach (firewood available at the house)

Bayside beaches: The sunset picture on the main page of our listing is looking across the bay. On a clear day or crisp night you can see clear across Cape Cod Bay to Plymouth and the Sagamore Bridge! Where the distant hill in that photo 'dips' is the 'hollow' in 'Great Hollow Beach', less than a 2-mile walk (or very short drive). A great place to go to picnic while watching the sunset. Just as close in the other direction are the beaches on the ocean-side...Long Nook, Coast Guard, Head of the Meadow, all with 60 to 100 ft. sand dunes. The skies at dusk and dawn are usually fused with awesome light and color...the stuff that has drawn artists to the outer cape for generations. Last season we saw nearly 70 seals basking on a sandbar in the early morning.

Just down the road from the house is a local farm market, a fresh seafood store, and a new place with home-made ice cream, stone-fired pizzas, great coffees (espresso, etc.) and free wi-fi (although our house has that, too.)

Equidistant between Provincetown and Wellfleet: Both Wellfleet and Provincetown are about the same distance from the house...about 10 minutes (or less) by car. Wellfleet is less rural than Truro, with a small downtown and some great family seafood restaurants.

Provincetown is where the days and nights are alive with throngs of visitors and locals. There are many shops and excellent restaurants, a very active theater community, rentals for boats, kayaks and bikes. The art gallery scene in 'P'town' goes back generations and the studios are well known throughout the art world. Several venues have live music of different types. And, of course, there are the famous dance clubs and other bars.

For kids, there are whale watches, fishing, and the trip up Pilgrim Monument, the tallest granite structure in America. Dedicated by T.R. Roosevelt, this year it's 103 years old. There's the Trolley tour, the Provincetown Ghost Tour, the famous Whale Watch cruises (if you haven't done this you should !)

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Thanks!" for a great end-of-summer vacation. We all loved your house. The hot tub was a huge hit with grownups and kids alike, and we really loved the view. Lots of time spent on the deck just gazing out across the bay, then stargazing at night. ...We're all fantasizing about moving to Truro now.

On one of the higher hills in Truro, equidistant between the bay-side and the ocean-side. A 30 mile view over Great Hollow, looking across the bay to Sagamore and Plymouth. The National Seashore hiking trails can be accessed down the road. Great also for biking. Truro is the most rural town on the Cape, but is a short drive from Provincetown, a well-known resort with art galleries, many restaurants, whale watches, charter fishing boats, nightclubs, film festivals, theater, etc. At the end of the day, return to Truro. Have a cocktail watching the sky turn colors over Cape Cod Bay. Relax in the outdoor hot tub (chemical free, ozone-based, producing oxygen bubbles not chlorine foam!). Watch dozens of seals play in the water at Truro beaches.... Have a beach bonfire at night (permit required, easy to get).

Other Activities: Winter cross country skiing on National Seashore Trails. Near art galleries, shops, restaurants, museums, theaters and galleries of P'town.

Golf: Truro Public Golf Course nearby. Great ocean views, a fun course near the Truro Lighthouse.

Lovely week at this absolutely charming house in Truro!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely charming home, wonderful with kids, fully stocked with everything we needed, and close to Provincetown, Wellfleet, downtown Truro, etc. I love cycling and from this location I just did some fantastic rides all week long.

It helped that we had absolutely stunning weather the whole time.

Kevin was there to show us around when we arrived, and we got to see him on our departure. He has just fantastic furnishings including great pieces and pictures from his family.

Boys each had very comfortable rooms/beds, and so did we, no trouble at all. Although we didn't use it, the house also has a lovely spa and sound system - in our case, we were just out too much to really make use of all of that. That noted, we did love the few nights we grilled and/or brought home fully cooked lobsters.

There is a great fish market just across Route 6 along with a small grocery and liquor store, and just down the street is a very convenient pizza & cafe where we also grabbed lunch and breakfast stuff.

From the house my wife did some lovely runs in the woods to the beach, and as I noted, I did incredible rides to Provincetown and the dunes, plus up to Wellfleet, etc. You can literally ride for 100s of miles if you want from this location and are into cycling!

We are deeply in love with Truro and the surroundings, thought all the beaches were spectacular and the location absolutely perfect!!!!!

Also, Kevin was incredibly responsive and helpful throughout our stay!

Excellent !!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation stay at this home in Truro. This modern house is extremely well maintained with beautiful views from the deck. We spent every morning and most evenings out there relaxing and enjoying the view.

Kevin the owner was a great host and readily available while still being non intrusive. Thanks for a great week Kevin.

The hot tub was a great feature especially after a long day at the beach or sightseeing. Overall a great week on the Cape. We miss it already!

Incredible home! The perfect Cape hideaway, with all the comforts of home.

  • 5 of 5

Kevin is an amazing and generous host. We felt at home in his spacious and very clean house tucked in the woods with a wonderful view of the bay. The hot tub is an excellent added bonus. (Along with the BBQ on the deck.) You'll have a terrific home away from home vacation. Truro is our favorite spot and this house is our favorite home on the Cape!

Perfection... Can't beat this spot to enjoy all that Truro has to offer!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This home, with its abundance of space, is just what a family or group of adults need to get quickly into vacation mode. Nothing was forgotten. Linens are supplied, which is great. The kitchen has everything needed to prepare those summer time meals. The property is beautifully landscaped and allows for many spots for group or private relaxation. Would definitely stay here again!!!!

Perfect...

  • 5 of 5

Everything we needed and more, this house offered the perfect space to celebrate our 18th year vacation on the cape as we prepare to send our son off to college. He and his best friend had all the privacy they needed downstairs while my husband and I enjoyed our own privacy upstairs. When it rained and cooled down unexpectedly we had a fire in the fireplace - the wood was already supplied. The boys enjoyed the firepit at night and the hot tub was sublime, located in a beautiful private spot opposite a tree with a bird house. We so enjoyed watching the activity around it as we relaxed. The house is situated on a private hill overlooking Truro. The pictures cannot do the view of the bay justice. Close to ocean beaches and the best bay beach in my view; Corn Hill (best sunsets ever). Great proximity to lively P-town, a real plus. We had all the comforts of home and much more. Lovely owner, kind and happy to answer our questions. We highly recommend this home!
