Great Cottage with Private Beach

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay nights


About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

This is a rustic beach cottage with great views of the bay and a partial view of Provincetown. It is located 75 feet back from the top of a sand dune that overlooks Cape Cod Bay.

There is a private beach which is located about 200 feet from the front door (a three or four minute walk). There is a sun deck with great views of the bay. The beach is very secluded, it is not uncommon to be alone on the beach, even in the summer. There are sand bars at low tide and the bay water is warmer than the ocean. From the top of the stairs that lead to the beach there are great views of Provincetown at night. The kitchen and bath room are newly remodeled. It is a house one can have fun in and relax. The furnishings are modest but comfortable. Please feel free to call me about details. I will be happy to speak with you in person.

About Dana

I am 58, and a builder, I live in Los Angeles in the winter but spend my summers on Cape Cod in Truro. I have spent summers in Truro all of my life and love it. There is something unique and magical about Cape Cod Bay. There are many special things to do and experience here. I am passionate about art and philosophy and would very much like to have you as my guest.

Dana purchased this cottage in 1962

Why Dana chose Cape Cod

This cottage has been in my family since 1964 and was the first cottage on Knowles Height Rd.

The views, the private beach and the seclusion. There is something wonderful about this spot that touches everyone who stays here.

Absolutely Great

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutley excellant time and enjoyed ourselves tremendously. We had done a lot of looking and really liked the way it did not have neighbors all over. We were so happy we made this our home for the time we were there. The inside is basic, clean and has everything you need. You can see the water from the porch and hear the waves. It is exactly a one minute walk to the top of the stairs leading down to the priivate beach. There were many times that we were the only ones along the entire shore, as far as you could see. I would certainly tell anyone that they should stay here. Dana was great to work with and we certainly hope to stay there in the future.

Amazing View-Comfortable Furnishings-Seclusion

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was in the perfect location with partial views of the Cape Cod Bay. During the day the scenery was whimisical and at night you could see stars for miles. The proximity to the beach was perfect and every night the sunset on the private beach was amazing. One guest said, "Every night is a wine and cheese kind of moment." The neighborhood was welcoming and friendly. Dana the owner was accommodating, friendly, and truly wanted us to have nothing but fun. The accomodations are modest, but we spent most of our time on the beach, on the deck enjoying the Sunset, having conversation. Our dog loved roaming around the property and exploring the beach. Dana was very accepting of our large group and gave us loads of information regarding best beaches, places to eat, and transportation.

We took the bus a few nights into P-Town (about a 10 minute walk from the house). It was cheap. Took a cab home from P-Town. IT WAS SO EASY. There were 7 of us in the house, and we all slept comfortably. We all got along great, respected each others privacy (when needed).

Nice cottage -Awesome location!

  • 4 of 5

Me and my husband have been to this cottage 3 times so far...and we'd for sure come again. We love this location.. the private bay side beach is in walking distance and is never crowded. There's always a nice breeze coming in the dining room window. It's also a nice area to ride your bikes.. we just love it here.
