Description

Description

A rustic cottage converted from an artist's studio featuring exposed beams and boards salvaged from historic local salt works. The tranquil outdoor spaces, simple but well stocked interior, and historic setting make this an ideal retreat - all within a short walk to Fisher Beach on the Bay, one of Truro's best kept secrets.

An open design, the main living area includes a small but functional kitchenette with a 2 burner cooktop and convection oven, and dining area overlooked by a loft space with windows in the peak bringing in lots of light and an openness that makes the space live larger. A first floor sleeping area is tucked in under the loft behind the closet and staircase providing a sense of privacy. A sliding glass door in the bedroom provides great exterior access, lots of light and fresh air (with light darkening curtains if you want to sleep in). A small deck off the bedroom is a quiet place to enjoy the morning sun with a cup of coffee. The simple bathroom includes a new shower and lots of storage. Concrete floors throughout enhance the rustic industrial vibe of the cottage and make cleaning up beach sand easy.

The cottage is cozy and quaint but includes just about everything needed for a beach vacation including use of a gas grill with outdoor dining at an expandable table with umbrella, hot and cold outdoor shower, and padded chaise lounge chairs, providing a great place for curling up with a good book. Truly a getaway - no internet access (sorry NO WIFI) or land-line phone (but good cell reception). WiFi is available in nearby Truro Center. Extended season cottage with linens, beach towels and chairs, this is a perfect escape for a single or couples, with room for an overnight guest.

The sloping traditional Cape lawn is surrounded by pine, oak and locust forest, with perimeter gardens. This creates a private and tranquil setting. The quiet, even in summer, just melts the stress away. Yet we are only minutes from Wellfleet or the excitement of Provincetown.

Half mile to Fisher Beach on the bay, a little further to Pamet Harbor, in relaxing, peaceful setting. Bring your bikes - a lovely ride to downtown Wellfleet. And don't forget your kayak, canoe or paddleboard - nearby Fisher Beach and Pamet Harbor offer excellent opportunities for recreational enjoyment. The cottage and setting offer the epitome of peace and tranquility. Truro is a unique blend of peace and recreation.

We are also on the Hopper tour, as ours was one of the homes he painted. Edward and Josephine Hopper used to play cards in the main home with my grandparents. The main home is immediately adjacent to the cottage, but unfortunately we aren't often in residence except for the occasional weekend - leaving guests to usually enjoy the property all on their own.

    Very nice and quiet

    We stayed at Elizabeth's cottage for one week early in the season. This small house has certainly charms, is clean and well equipped, and stands perfect for a restful vacation. Well located in Outer Cape, it is close to facilities, beaches, and just afoot of a small road that is allowed to biking - one of our preferred route.

    Note: since there is no wi-fi and if you are from Canada, for instance, buy a pre-paid SIM card - unless you really want to be cut off of the world, which is also a possibility one would consider. show more show less

    So glad that you enjoyed our rustic artist's cottage - and had fabulous weather to take advantage of all the outdoor activities that Truro is so perfect for. Thank you for your tips about travelers from Canada too - I'll be sure to add that my pre-visit info. Hope you enjoy the rest of the summer, and thank you for caring for my cottage so well!

    Summer Week

    We just spent a week at this cottage and found it charming and restful. The surrounding grounds are beautiful and it is a 15 minute walk along a quiet road to a lovely beach. The cottage is filled with original art and books. It has a high ceiling and lots of light.

    All of the conveniences you need have been thoughtfully included. A bonus is the fantastic outdoor shower.

    It's certainly a gem!

    Third generation owner of this historic, classic Cape property. The cottage was once my grandfather's art studio, and many of the repeat renters come to Truro for inspiration for their own creative pursuits. We've been managing and improving the cottge since 2016. We moved it's marketing to WeNeedaVacation.com to better support our guests with a more affordable option.

    What is special about this property?
    Truro is a unique blend of peace and recreation. The quiet, even in summer, just melts the stress away. Yet we are only minutes from Wellfleet or the excitement of Provincetown. I love just sitting in the yard relaxing. The easy walk to Fisher Beach and nearby conservation lands make this a great outdoor retreat. We are also on the Hopper tour, as ours was one of the homes he painted (Locust Trees http://accessaddison.andover.edu). Edward and Josephine Hopper used to play cards in the main home with my grandparents.

    What is special about your town?
    Truro is a unique blend of peace and recreation. The town offers bay and ocean beaches, lots of great walking trails, a lovely harbor from which charter boats leave for fishing. Truro is also home to a vineyard and distillery. Plus we are only minutes from Wellfleet and Provincetown.
