Overview

About the property

3 Bed, 1 Bath Perfectly Located

This lovely antique Cape is located in historic Pond Village in North Truro, just a 5-minute walk to beautiful Cold Storage beach on the bay side and a 5-minute drive to Coast Guard Beach on the ocean side.

Set back from a quiet road on a hill, this 3-bedroom, 1-bath house with outdoor shower sleeps up to 6. Ample entertaining and lounging areas include a back patio with a sofa, chairs & fire pit; a side patio with outdoor tables & chairs shaded by a grape arbor; a living room that opens into a front porch; and a private hammock up the hill in the back yard.

This house is as wonderful in fall as it is in summer. The beaches are empty but the water is still warm. Come for Oysterfest 2018 (Oct. 13-14), enjoy the warm days and cool nights, the fall night sky, and - best of all - the lack of summer crowds!

Uniquely located for Truro, you could spend your entire time here without having to drive -- local grocer/liquor store Salty Market is a 2-min walk down the road, next door to eatery Captain's Choice and chocolatier/cafe Chequessett Chocolate. The Outer Cape’s only vineyard is about a 10-minute walk away.

Provincetown and Wellfleet are a 10-minute drive in either direction.

Amazon FireStick, DVD player & DVDs are provided.

No pets allowed.

About Rosy Lum

Rosy grew up in Truro. She met Jonathan in Brooklyn in 2009 and they felt the call of the Cape until they found their dream house in 2014.

Rosy Lum purchased this house in 2014

Why Rosy Lum chose North Truro

We wanted something antique that we could update, make our own, and restore to its original beauty. We envisioned creating a perfect Cape Cod getaway experience we could then share with others.

What makes this house unique

The wide pine floors, the antique doors and details, the classic cozy pantry, late night dinners under the grape arbor on the patio, the front porch overlooking the marsh, the sound of peepers lulling you to sleep, the majestic mimosa tree welcoming you home.

Wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and sweet house. Wonderful backyard and hammock. Lovely front porch. Kept up very well. Amazing location. We had a great week there with our kids. There is no air conditioning so it can get hot on the hottest nights of August, but that (and just one bathroom) are the only downsides.

This charming house is exactly as described!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful experience for my family. This incredibly tasteful beach home tucked away among the herb and flower gardens allowed all to enjoy the proximity to the beach, comforts of home and romantic dinners under the grape harbor. The host Rosy really cares about every detail of the experience in this home: the small pantry is fully stocked with all the necessary tools, lovely teas from around the world and well -sharpened knives! It truly makes you feel you are staying in your friend's house.

She is always available for inquiries and incredibly lovely herself!

Would love to visit again! Thank you

Great well-kept house, very responsive owners

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our brief stay at this property. We were visiting Cape Cod in the off season, and booked this house close to our arrival. The owners were very responsive to our questions both before and during our stay and helped resolve an internet connection issue with Comcast (which is never easy to do).

One thing to be aware of is that the staircase to the upper floor is steep and the bathroom is on the first floor. It was fine for us but could be a challenge going up and down at night if you have young kids or people with mobility issues.

Great Cap Cod Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The "Antique Charmer" was just that...and more. Our family of four had a wonderful time staying at Rosy and Jonathan's North Truro vacation home. The house is ideally located withing walking distance to Cold Storage Beach, a small sound-side beach featuring amazing sunset views. A short fifteen minute drive (or easily accessible public bus) will get you to Provincetown to explore its unique sights and boutiques. The house is very clean and well equipped for in-home cooking as well as beach adventure. We were happy to use the beach chairs and float provided. The property consists of several unique areas both inside and out where one can kick back and relax.

The backyard hammock was certainly a welcoming treat. Rosy was extremely easy to work with and communicate. The home is a product of their passion for the surrounding area.

The house was well kept in & out. Great location

  • 5 of 5

The house was as described, well kept both inside & out. The location was good for us, store close by as well as good choice of restaurants. If you are looking for a peaceful stay along with close by attractions and beaches Rosy & Jonathan's is the place for you.
