Kevin Whitelaw purchased this House in 1892
Why Kevin Whitelaw chose Truro
Be a part of Ballston Beach history. The property has been in the family for over 100 years. My children grew up coming to the dune, the same as I did with my 3 brothers and Mom and Dad. The property holds a special place for us and is a big part of our family legacy.
What makes this House unique
The property has changed over the years but has always kept its rustic charm. The house looks almost the same as it did when I was a child even with upgrades over the years. You cant beat grilling and watching the sunset on the porch while enjoying a beverage. We love coming home after a great day on the beach to relax and enjoy a meal in the dining room or on the porch. Sometimes we go back down to the beach and enjoy a beach fire. Beach fire permits are available at the town hall. There are not many true beach houses left that have retained the old beach house atmosphere.

Fantastic house on Ballston Beach
Fantastic old beach camp right on the beach. Full of charm and character, comfort and views.
Best place on the Cape!
We absolutely loved our time at this house! We loved that we could have a quiet time on the Cape without all the crowds and noise. The house had everything we needed - loved the wraparound porch, the many windows, the big tables, the well appointed kitchen. Thanks Kevin for sharing your house!
Summer getaway with friends
Perfect location for a large group of friends to get away for a few days down the Cape. Great communication with the owner and overall really good experience!
Our stay at the Whitelaws was a pleasure. The house has a wonderful old feel and there was room for everyone in our large party. The location couldn’t be better!
House set up is awesome and you are right in the beach! It is a beach cabin but for what we wanted perfect! The porch is a great place to sit rest and enjoy the scenery! Close to PTown we taxi’d to down there!!
Throw-back cape experience with incredible location
Was looking for a quiet place next to the beach and this was perfect. Great views and location. Rustic 3-season house with a lot of space and history. We were the first to stay for the season, so outdoor furniture was still stowed for the winter. Owner had kindly stoked the woodstove before our arrival since it was pretty cold and windy that week. Everyone enjoyed their time and the peace and quiet. Not for people looking for fancy or modern digs, but it had everything we needed and the right location. Owner responsive to questions during our stay.
