Description

Description

This classic Cape Cod cottage with ocean views sits on 1.5 wooded acres and is walking distance to Truro’s famous dune beach, Longnook. It’s the perfect place to unplug and get back to nature.

The pictures do not do the property justice.

There is a large combined living room/dining room and a reasonably appointed kitchen. Vacationers have three rooms for sleeping: a large master bedroom with a queen bed and an attached half-bath; a second bedroom with twin beds; and a third with a queen bed. There is both an indoor and simple outdoor shower, and there’s a working fireplace in case the weather should turn chilly.

Please note that the home is clean and fully functional but is quite rustic. It has a lot of small antiques and tchotchkes all around. The floors are well worn, and the furniture and appliances are older. It’s best for a single family, couples, or small group of friends, and not suited for children under age 10.

The wide porch is great for morning coffee or sunbathing, while the surrounding woods make for a private getaway. Beaches on the ocean and bay side offer plenty of options.

There’s no Wi-Fi at the house, but that’s available at the local library (and a few local businesses). At the current time, we have no laundry facility on site either.

If you are looking for a quiet, cozy place to unwind – our home will make a great stay. Do not hesitate to contact us with questions. We want your stay to be the best.

A Week of Memories

My wife, daughters (ages 12 and 16), Mom (age 80), and I stayed through to Labor Day. We were prepared for, and looking forward to, the rustic nature of the cottage. No tv or wi-fi was not a problem for us. We read and played games. The eclectic furnishings were a constant source of interest. The view of the water in the distance was better than expected, with the sun rising each day over the water directly in sight. With binoculars from the back deck we saw whales spouting one day. The relative isolation up among the trees was relaxing. It was further to the water than expected. Would not count on elderly or young children walking to it, especially as the cottage sits up on a hill and the walk ends in an extremely steep dune down to the beach. We all enjoyed the time and brought back home many new Cape Cod memories. show more show less

I am a Yankee dispatched for personal reasons for Texas. I spend as much time as I can on the Cape, grew up spending summers in this very house, and am happy to share it with visitors -- whether they are first-timers or old-timers. We get back each summer, but August is a time for my wife and child to deal with school matters, so that leaves us with a house for you.

What is special about this property?
The house which sits on a quiet wooded hill top overlooking the waters of the Atlantic -- keep your eyes peeled for whales breaching in the distance -- belonged to my late mother, a wonderful artist and intrepid fan of flea markets worldwide. Now the house belongs to my brother and I, and we like to make it clear that this is no ordinary cottage. Built 60 years ago, it contains not just a lot of family history but also a fair amount of my mother's inventory of mid-century collectibles. We are undergoing some routine maintenance these days to improve the condition of this old home, but as they say in the real-estate game it's all about LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION and we have that in spades. Longnook Beach is one of the most spectacular not just on Cape Cod but in the world, and we have easy access -- a 15-minute walk down a long driveway gets you to the top of the famous Truro dunes and the sandy shores of the Atlantic. A five minute drive gets you to the lovely, swimmable family-friendly beaches of Cape Cod Bay. Trust me, whatever your taste, the surroundings are just paradise.

What is special about your town?
The house is a few minutes drive from Truro's small town center which has summer concerts near the quiet Pamet River. The town boasts a Post Office, the local Mac's Seafood shop, and grocery and sundries at Jam's. However, there is no shortage of access to more active communities, as both historic Wellfleet and happening Provincetown (very LGBT friendly) are a buzz during the summer with theater and cabaret, concerts, seasonal and year-round restaurants highlighting the community's farming heritage. Really, it's the beach that keeps us entertained about 90 percent of the time, but such amenities are within easy reach.
