- english, spanish, mandarin
We are a family of two architects and two little ones, home based in the Boston area. We started coming out here while studying in 2007 and loved the natural beauty, the artistic and grounded community, the wildness of being out seemingly at the end of the world. As designers, we love discovering and creating spaces that have positive human and community impact. Mark and Katie have designed buildings and interiors all over New England and the Mid-Atlantic and had a blast designing this little home together. Even for such a small place, we continue to love and refine it over the years. Our children grew up in this home and are contributing to its growth and change. We hope you will love it as we do.
Katie purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Katie chose Truro
We fell hard for the outer cape, its pristine beaches, the inland ecosystem, the wild ocean, the magical light, and the community. The house has an iconic "house" shape and we loved its southern exposure, its placement between conservation land and the ocean. It used to be a two-car garage for the larger manse on the water. We delight in its smallness. It gave us helpful limitations for design so that we aimed for simplicity. It has a wonderful community of owners around us and a tone of gratefulness, respect and wonder for nature all around. The house shares a private condo association beach across the street overlooking west towards Provincetown, Wellfleet and unbelievable sunsets.
What makes this Cottage unique
We designed and renovated this tiny house to fit a simple beach life. It is unconventional and quirky so guests need to come with a mindset of simplicity and lightness.

Love this cottage, year after year
My partner, son, and I return to the Cape and this cottage every year. It’s clean, well-located, well-designer, and cared for. Days at the beach, rinsing off the sun and sand at the end of the day in the outdoor shower, evening card games under the ceiling fan, easy drives to Ptown and Wellfleet for dinner, shopping, or a drive-in movie. Thank you, Katie, for sharing this beautiful place with us!
Adorable cottage with everything you need
A great cottage. Clean and just enough space. A stones throw away from the beach! Would do it again. Thank you.
Very nice place to stay
My wife and I did enjoy staying and the place is very nice and clean.
Right by the ocean!
A great unit. We had a fun time. Will definitely come back.
We came from Texas in offseason...and glad we did. the Beach cottage was perfect and close enough to everything. Katie was amazing.
Just exactly how described.
Review of stay
Did call the owner and never received a return phone call upon arriving.
I wish bed linens and towels were provided. Makes it difficult to travel with these items, especially if you come with a large group.
Otherwise a cute,quaint comfortable stay. The neighbors are friendly and welcoming.
Thanks for the review. I'm sorry I didn't see the voicemail until later. I thought that you figured out which house it was upon arrival since my husband didn't get a call as well. I will make the welcome email a little more clear with photos for the future and keep my phone near during check-in days.
I understand what a pain it is to bring linens and towels. It is an ordeal for our cleaner to provide the linens since it is so time-consuming and just one tiny property, rather than a large development. There is an option to rent them as many cottages around there have similar policies. I will try to figure out how to do so without making the rental fee more than it is.
Thank you for choosing our cottage for your vacation!
