Built in 1939, this house has been lived in by the same family for its entire existence. It was built for a composer and still contains his concert grand piano in the long, light living room which faces a beautiful view of the Cape Cod Bay.
It is on a quiet dirt road about 3/4 mile from the paved road, on a hill with constant breezes that keep mosquitoes away and keep it cool on even the warmest days. There is a picnic table and outdoor wooden furniture which can be placed in front of the house or under the large shade tree for long afternoon lunches. It is a 10 minute walk to a private beach on the Wellfleet Truro line.
On the ground floor is the large master bedroom with a queen/king size bed and a guestroom with a full size bed. The master bedroom has windows on 3 sides with plenty of cross ventilation. There is a full bath off the hall that runs between the two bedrooms and the living room.The second floor has a king size bed and 2 twin beds. These rooms are separated by a small hall and a 1/2 bath. Linens are provided for those who rent for two weeks or longer, otherwise guests are asked to bring their own sheets & towels.
There is an outdoor shower which faces the bay and the woods behind the house. It is extremely private and gives the freedom of bathing in the wild.

Television is provided via DirectTV (dish). Internet connection is available.

Timeless beauty

The simplest way to say it is: this place is heaven. From the moment we arrived, I never wanted to leave. It's peaceful and quiet, with a beautiful open view. The house is old-fashioned and simple. It was perfect for us, and we were very comfortable. The best part is the wonderful secluded location, with the bay beach an easy walk away and town just a few minutes drive on back roads. This place is timeless.

Our Dream House

We have been renting on the Cape for 20 years, and this is our favorite place yet. We have rented this house for the last two summers and will keep coming. It is secluded, quiet and comfortable with lots of space inside and out. The beach is a easy walk. We went twice a day with our kids and only once saw other people on the beach. If you value privacy, this place is for you. The house itself is lovely and simple in the best way. This is the house we have always dreamed of owning ourselves. A true Cape house, perfectly sited to look over a rolling field toward the water. The property is still owned by the same family that built the house 100 years ago. They have kept it in very good repair without stripping it of its charm as has happened with so many of the original houses on the Cape. Nor have they sold off the surrounding property and peppered it with cabins. It is an easy drive to lots of ocean beaches, ponds and restaurants. The owners are terrific, there to help, but otherwise invisible. We just love this place and can't say enough good things about it. show more show less

Family Summer Place

Seven of us, two couples, two children and a babysitter, fit easily here. The kitchen had everything needed; we never had to go out for a meal. (As a bonus, it's far more charming than the picture.) The beds were comfortable; the living room was perfect for everyone to be in at once, for afternoon naps and after-dinner hanging out. (The curtains flutter when the wind picks up; there are wonderful paintings--I was never able to pick a favorite because it kept changing as the light swept through.)

The location is the star of the show. It's maybe 15 minutes through summer traffic to Provincetown, but you'd never know it. Apart from the owners, who were friendly and available to answer questions but extremely careful of our privacy, we couldn't see other people from the house. Distant ocean, a huge bowl of sky overhead, birds, wind-stunted trees, constantly changing weather and light. We tended to sit outdoors and stare off into the distance. Cups of coffee, glasses of wine, half-finished books had to compete with the view.

The nearby beach is a short walk down a dirt road, and we saw more seals than people there. A great place to walk.

If your idea of heaven is a weekend in a modern hotel in the city, this isn't your speed. If salt breezes, hosing sand off your feet, slamming screen doors, card games and books spell summer to you, if you think you might enjoy staying in a home that's clearly been well-loved for a long time by interesting people, this spot is dead flat perfect.

Quiet, peaceful, gorgeous view!

We have stayed here twice, each time for one week, and have lamented not being able to stay longer; time passed too quickly. Four adults and two young children, we each had space to ourselves when needed, outdoor and indoor. The kitchen is clean and well-stocked, the bedrooms are big but feel cozy, and all of the rooms are filled with light and the smell of the ocean. Set up on a hill, the breeze was perfect. The owners are nearby if you need them, but very private, a comfortable place to stay if you enjoy older Cape homes. We cannot wait to return! show more show less

The house has been in our family since it was built in 1939. We live here for eight months of the year, so we seldom think of it as a ''rental'', but instead it is the place we think of as ''home''. It is filled with our books and paintings and when people rent it we feel that it is more like inviting people into a part of our life, than running a rental business. But at the same time we are very careful to keep our distance, to allow our renters to live there as though it were their own.
While it is rented we live in a building that we had used for several years as a studio. It is hidden behind a group of trees, near enough to be helpful if there are ever any problems with the main house, but far enough away to insure privacy for all.
