This beautiful and restful four-season cottage near bay and ocean beaches combines the comfort and ease of modern amenities with the charm of exposed beams and natural pine floors. The building, a renovated barn, has two stories, fifteen by twenty feet, with an attached full bathroom. The cottage is now completely solar-powered. Downstairs the open floor plan has a comfortable seating area with a daybed/couch, a dining table, and a fully equipped kitchen. French doors lead to the delightful screened-in porch with table and chairs, creating a sense of continuous space, inside and out. Upstairs is light and airy, with windows looking over the back hill, gardens, and a large cherry tree full of songbirds. There is a high-quality queen bed and single bed by the windows (perfect for reading and daydreaming). The cottage is located on a large property next to a 150-year-old, cape-style farmhouse surrounded by vegetable and flower gardens. Organic vegetables, eggs and honey are all produced on the property and can be purchased when available. Situated in Pond Village in North Truro, bay beaches are just a ten minute walk down historic Pond Road. A two minute walk brings you to the village general store and two cafes, one serving artisanal chocolates made on premises. Ocean beaches are only a ten minute bike ride away. A TV, DVD player and WiFi allow you to connect to the modern world. There is basic cable, and newly-installed Apple TV with Netflix and many other venues to watch. There is also a basement with a washer/dryer and on-site parking. The Owners, Rob and Janice, are gracious hosts, respectful of your privacy and there for anything you may need. Summer visits are full of breezes, and winter stays are warmed by a state-of-the art heating system installed in 2013. This is an ideal getaway at any season for two or three people.

My wife and I are both artists, teachers, and live on the property year round. Our son, who is 13, enjoys nature and raises butterflies in the summer, tends to the chickens, and loves to run and swim. We have spent years renovating and decorating the house and cottage which are both filled with beautiful artwork and good books. We spend a lot of our time cultivating vegetables and flowers, and raise chickens and bees. We eat the food we produce all year and enjoy selling produce to renters and neighbors when available.
email@example.com purchased this Cottage in 2000
Why firstname.lastname@example.org chose North Truro
We loved the property the first minute we saw it and lived in the cottage ourselves for 12 summers. We were especially attracted to the rural feel of pond village and being surrounded by abundant nature, animal and bird life and the local culture of artists, tradesman and fisherman. We call it paradise, and the best kept secret on the outer Cape!

A gem of a place! Quaint converted barn in quiet N Truro with the ambience of an English cottage.
This place is a gem! Small quaint converted barn in quiet North Truro with the feel of an English cottage, plus lovely helpful hosts who keep the place immaculate. Even a funky little chicken coop in the back yard. Less than 15 minutes from Provincetown too. We'll come back.
A lovely little house
Thank you for the 4 days we spent in your cottage, so well equipped for our stay, complete with muffins and milk. We appreciated all the art work on the walls and our short talks with you and your proximity to the National Seashore. We spent a lot of time at the Audubon Society’s Wellfleet campus, coastal walking and watching birds. We hope to return soon. Thank you.
Lovely all around!
Janice and Rob are kind, gracious hosts -- am appreciative of their attention to detail. The cottage is cozy and inviting.
Gorgeous - the family has chickens and bees, what could be bad?!
We had to drive through a terrible nor'easter to get there but it was totally worth it. The property is amazing, great location along the northern part of Cape Cod. The hosts were so friendly and fun to talk to, offering a great deal of warm food and even a bed in their own house for fear the cottage's power might go out in the storm. Despite all that, the cottage held out great, the power never did more than flicker that day, and we stayed warm and cozy the rest of our time there. In reality, we felt like royalty staying in a luxurious suite, for the cottage was absolutely beautiful - multi storied, high ceilinged, nice large bed, a great bathroom and kitchen, and a very comfy couch. Bookshelves were scattered throughout the place filled with wonderful books, some old and historic, others modern and interesting. I particularly enjoyed the aesthetic appeal those books provided in the cottage. Their Apple Tv has cable, Netflix and Hulu options plus more. I was sad to leave! I highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to enhance their stay at Cape Cod.
Meet your favorite Auntie you never knew
The cottage is amazing. It's brilliantly convenient and we'll stocked. Bring food, but otherwise, everything you need is already there.
Janice is absolutely wonderful. If you have a question, need, etc she is there to help. Thank you so much!!!
This visit meant so much in a deeply profound way... we may make this a special kind of memorial and return often.
Great to be back!
This was our second time staying at the cottage. Just as our last visit, everything was perfect. The cottage is not too far from Provincetown, and has many restaurants and shops a short distance away. Can't wait to come back again.
The cottage is located on the property of a 150 year old Cape farmhouse in Pond Village and surrounded by the Cape Cod National Seashore. There are many town and National Seashore beaches to choose from. Bike and hiking trails are nearby as well as freshwater ponds for swimming, golf course, and a winery just up the road. Provincetown is ten minutes away and has great restaurants, art galleries and museums, as well as the best whale watching trips on the east coast.
