Well-designed, -located, and -equipped. A serene spot for a cape cod vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time in the Seashell cottage, and we plan to return next year. The cottage is sweet, clean, peaceful--perfect, really! Our family of three (two adults and one adolescent) makes meals, plays games, takes outdoor showers, sleeps soundly, reads quietly, and otherwise enjoys the well-designed space. Thank you for sharing it with us, Katie and Scott! It's a gift each year.

Clean and cozy cottage in great location for exploring the end of Cape Cod

  • 5 of 5

This was a very clean and cozy cottage in a great location for exploring the end of Cape Cod. Four of us stayed at the cottage, one couple stayed in the downstairs room, and the other stayed in the loft. There isn't a ton of privacy, the loft ladder is steep, and there is only kneeling headroom in the loft so that configuration might not work for everyone, but was fine for us. It would also work well for a couple with kids staying in the loft (old enough to negotiate the ladder). There was ample hot water for indoor showering, and the outdoor shower worked well. The bay side beach is right across the street. While small, the cottage worked perfectly for us.

We visited in the off-season (end of April) so a number of stores and restaurants were closed as expected. With that being said, there was still plenty to do, see, and places to eat. about a 1/10 of a mile up the road, you can cross route 6, then get onto a paved bike trail called Meadow Trail (dirt road entry- High Head road) that brings you to Head of Meadow beach (all shown on Google Maps). There are other non-paved trails that branch off that offer great views, and there is a historical mark where the first water spring was found. We also went on the bike trails that connect Race Point, Herring Cove, and an inland area Beech Forest. We saw right wales, dolphins and seals right off the beach. There is a great walk along a rock causeway from Pilgrims' First Landing Park at the end of Provincetown (comercial street) out to Wood Point. If you don't mind a longer walk, you can then head out to Long Point and the light house, or the other way to Wood End light house.

Delightful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This tiny, but comfortable cottage is perfectly designed for maximum comfort and was very relaxing. Light-filled and lovely! Everything we needed was neatly stored so that we didn't feel cramped. It's a short walk to the beach. We were there during the off-season, but I understand there is a cafe and a shop very nearby. Sparkling clean, well-appointed, with lots of comforts. Just a 10-minute car ride to Provincetown and close to Truro and Wellfleet centers. Katie is accommodating, helpful, and friendly. Loved it!

Quiet Truro

  • 5 of 5

In mid-October, lovely beach cottage with a quiet Truro location. So welcoming to return each day to this well-appointed cottage that has an inviting feel of home. The interior design is bright, spacious, fun, simplicity at its best, & to be appreciated. Directly behind the iconic Days Cottages with a walking easement to the beach & water. Two markets nearby, one within easy walking distance. Cape Cod National Seashore so close by to explore... everyday. No regrets.

Dreamy Cottage at Beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely experience at North Truro! Katie was available immediately when we had questions. The apartment is full of natural light. The kitchen provides basic cooking equipments. The cottage is completely renovated and across the street from a beautiful beach. The bathroom is big and furniture throughout the cottage are new and very pretty. All was super clean! Grocery stores and dining are a close distance by car (P-town), as is downtown P-town for some shopping or sightseeing. There is also a store 2 mins. from the cottage. We definitely recommend staying.

Cottage perfection in the best kept secret of the Cape!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our time at the Seashell. The location is perfect! Less than 10 mins from P-Town, water on both sides, and the most beautiful private beach. North Truro is a sleepy beach community that makes for the perfect backdrop for plenty of R & R while also being super close to all the action in Provincetown. Walking distance to convienence store, as well as a great breakfast spot, Top Mast Cafe, bring your bike and you could even bike to Truro Winery, and P-Town. My husband and I found the house to be quaint, comfortable, full of charm, and full of all the essentials to make life easier. We can't wait to go back next year as we had such a great time we decided to make it a yearly trip!
