About the Property
1 bedroom, 1 bath, living room, kitchen, pantry, sleeps 2
Our guests have called this a 'fairytale' cottage, but we call it the Humming Bird Cottage. The Humming Birds start to arrive at the end of April. Most people wait until July and August to come to the Cape, but it is magical in the early Spring, filled with eager birdsong, the budding of green leaves, and the flowering of trees.
In the Cottage we have installed a beautiful new Mitsubishi heater/air conditioner that keeps the whole cottage toasty warm or soothingly cool. We also have a new 40" Sony TV and WIFI connection.
Tranquility is the rhythm of life. This is a great time of year for walking the never-ending beaches. There is plenty to do and see if you like nature, art, theater, music eating good food, or shopping for unique gifts.
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 a new washer and dryer, and a gas grill on the 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. For summertime there are whisper quiet ceiling fans in each room, and a newest addition is a beautifully silent Mitsubishi 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 treasures in 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.
In season, there is a good choice of restaurants in Truro, Wellfleet and Provincetown, and some overlook the water. Enjoy!
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.
