We really enjoyed our week at Colton Hollow and it was exactly what we expected. We arrived on Sunday. Shawn was there to greet us and give us a quick tour and a brief description of the area. The home was clean and there was ample space for us to spread out some. Our four teens preferred to stay together on the first floor (two on the couches and two on air mattresses). The couches pull out to beds but they wanted just to sleep on the couch, which they said was very comfortable. They liked having their own floor and bathroom to themselves too. My wife and I stayed on the third floor with our two year old daughter and we made the main floor bathroom ours. We had one upstairs bedroom that we really didn't have to use at all. The rooms were nice and had plenty of space for us. They were cooled with some window A/C units. A bunch of board games are upstairs and we made use of some of them. Kitchen was well stocked with utensils, pots, pans and supplies. Washer and dryer worked quick and well, so we went home with a lot of clean stuff. Shawn and Paul left us a bottle of wine, which was a nice touch after a long drive in from PA. They were truly great hosts who were quick to answer texts about local spots to visit and eat. Paul also stopped by to introduce himself and see if we needed anything, but they weren't at all intrusive and left us to do our own thing all week. We really enjoyed grilling out and sitting on the large deck. Our Weimaraner loved the fenced in yard which gave us some peace of mind in being able to just let him out the door. We made use of the bikes and beach chairs that were there. And we highly recommend sitting around the fire pit at night. There were great breezes and even though the highway is fairly close, you really don't even know it's there from out back. A whole family of turkeys made its way through the property several times during our stay. The home is a quick drive to both Provincetown and Head of the Meadow beach. We went to the beach every day. The seals were amazing to watch and we decided to swim and boogie board despite the scary shark signs at the beach head. The tide pools were great, especially for a toddler. Scenery in the beach area is amazing. We bought a Truro beach pass. I think if we return, we would buy the national park pass to see what it has to offer too. But the Truro beach is literally right next to the national beach anyway. We took a day trip to Boston harbor aquarium (which was awesome) and walked the waterfront. If we get back, we will try the Tea Party Ships. Also, if you bring a toddler, make sure to try the playground near the library and the library itself. Both were very cool to go to when our older ones were still sleeping.
Overall, the house is a little older but it was very comfortable for us. It is convenient to everything, yet a quiet place at the same time.
Jeremy and Kristie.....thanks so much for staying with us. We really enjoyed having you and glad you enjoyed yourself. I'm sorry our cleanliness didn't make a 5-star rating, we do our very best to make sure the house is clean and comfortable for guests when they arrive. We hope to see you again....thanks again. Paul & Shawn
