Property description

We know you will love -- everyone does -- our historic Provincetown home on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Our 200 year-old "Captain's House" has updated interior, but original structure preserved; many antiques. You'll see our home featured on postcards, in local history books, and in many paintings. If we had a nickle for every photo taken of our house, garden, and birdhouse collection -- we could have put at least one kid through college. This is a real home (without the clutter) that has been in our family since 1932. We only rent selectively, and have many repeat guests.This is NOT your typical rental; see our reviews.

You could not have a more perfect location: in center of town by Town Hall; 5 min walk from Boston/Ptown ferry dock; 10 minute drive to National Seashore beaches, as well as miles of paved bike and hiking trails. Pretty much just bring your clothes (and wine); we have everything else you need. Full kitchen, linens, outdoor grill, garden and chairs, picnic supplies, cd, TV (not sure why anyone would want to watch it), lending library, seating for 8+ at dinner table, book collection on Ptown history and art. Curl up in the home's bay window to read or people watch, or dive into the abundant arts, shopping and nightlife options - in our home you have your choice.

We limit guests to 6 and have 2 bedrooms with double beds, and a third bedroom with twins. We do have a day bed in the den that provides an extra bed (it pulls out to 2 singles side by side). But our limit remains 6 people total. Main bathroom has entry from all three bedrooms.

Caretaker will welcome you and show you around house; available to answer any questions during your stay; very accessible -- lives across street. Happy to provide additional photos and details, and answer any questions. Just call or text Lisa 202-714-7199. Happy Ptown vacation! We know you'll love it!















































































































































































































































Center of townOne of the most sought after seaside locations on the East Coast. Whether you want to walk the beaches of Cape Cod National Seashore, curl up in the home's bay window to read or people watch, or dive into the abundant arts, shopping and nightlife options - in our home you have your choice.



























































































































Our family has vacationed in Provincetown for a generation, and the house is very much the same it has been for at least half a century. However, we have just finished a complete refurbishing of interior, but preserving the original structure, antiques and art. (This is NOT your typical rental.)

Our home consists of 2300 square feet including three bedrooms, dining room seating for 10, living room with bay window and library alcove Fenced garden. Parking in back of house for 1 car or 2 compacts (tight squeeze). Sleeps 3 couples, (2 bedrooms with double beds, one with 2 single beds).
