Property description

The cottage is located on Truro Center Road near the top of the hill. It is not on Rte 6 as the google map may make you believe.
We are always making improvements in our cottage. This year we have permanently installed a beautiful Mitsubishi air conditioner/heater that keeps the whole cottage dry and fresh without making a sound. It is a significant upgrade to this lovely environment. We have also installed a new 40" Sony TV with cable, of course, and internet connection.
Fall is a favorite time of year here on the Cape, with clear blue skies, summer warmed ocean waters, refreshing breezes, deep green shade, and the rhythm of life has slowed to a peaceful pace. But there is still plenty to do and see if you like theater, music or eating great food. Fishermen favor surf-casting this time of year when the blues and bass are running strong.
We have wrap around oceans here, so you will rarely stray far from the Atlantic Ocean, Cape Cod Bay or the Pamet River estuary. Truro has some of the most beautiful beaches on the Cape--Ballston, Longnook, Head of the Meadow, Corn Hill. All the beaches are about five to ten minutes away.
Our guests have called this a 'fairytale' cottage, but we call it the Humming Bird cottage. Most people wait until July and August to come to the Cape, but it is even more magical in the quietness of the Fall, and the rates are lower too.
Sitting just below a pretty barn, the cottage is nestled in a leafy dell with verdant trees enfolding it. If you like, you can eat your meals on the deck. There are lots of flowers, and often, young rabbits hopping around if our friendly fox has not made an appearance. Flocks of wild turkeys may also make a stately parade across the land from time to time.
The cottage has high speed internet and HD TV, a new washer and dryer, and a gas grill on the brick patio. The living room has a Chickering piano, original art on the walls, and a dining area overlooking flowers in the garden. There is a summer blue bedroom with a queen-size bed, big closet, and a kitchen with a pantry. There are whisper quiet ceiling fans in each room, and our newest addition is a beautifully silent Mitsubishi in- wall air conditioner/heater/dehumidifier which has made the cottage much sweeter.
Wellfleet and Provincetown are a ten minute drive for memorable dining, shopping, and live theater. The Julie Harris Stage in Wellfleet, the Provincetown Theater, and art galleries and museums are less than 15 minutes away by car or the nearby Flex bus. Golfing at the Highland Links overlooking the Atlantic is like golfing in paradise. Nearby, are the famed Cape Cod Lighthouse and the Truro Historical Museum.
The School for Arts at Castle Hill is right around the corner if you would like to take a class for part of the day while you are here. So you can choose to rest and relax on our pristine beaches, and at the same time, enrich your soul.
There is a good choice of restaurants in Truro. Wellfleet and Provincetown, and some overlook the water. Enjoy!

For golfing, Truro is famous for The Highland Links which overlook the Atlantic Ocean. For cultural activities Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill abounds in the visual arts, writing, music, art shows and art auctions, lectures by prominent writers, live music. A free harbor cruise called 'Paint the Town' in September during the Provincetown Schooner Regatta is phenomenal, and they hold a Dance Festival in October. See our website for catalogue. Fisherman love this time of year for surf fishing. The sea is magnificent.
