RENOVATED ANTIQUE ON MILLPOND, IDEAL FOR FAMILY REUNIONS, VERY QUAINT

Truro House Rental Photos and Description

6 bedrooms, 5 baths, sleeps 12-14, A / C, Internet, WiFi

Spectacular Cape Cod Antique nestled on a sandy dune on the Pamet Mill Pond in South Truro. Walk to Fisher Beach, just 1/2 mile down Fisher Road or around the mill pond. Walk to Pamet Harbor 1/4 mile away. Birds and wildlife abound here where woodland meets the sea. We have just completed a complete renovation of this historic home.

With six bedrooms and five bathrooms, our home has the flavor of a country inn for your guests. We kept many of the great historical features, including the wide pine floors, wainscoting, period doors, hardware and hand-hewn beams. We added new windows, limestone baths, wide cherry wood trim, designer bath fixtures and many other modern conveniences including central air, central security, central vac and custom antique brass light fixtures and the gourmet kitchen. This Cape Cod escape has two stunning master suites (both first and second floors) - additionally, all bedrooms, the dining room and kitchen have waterfront vistas.

Each bath contains beautiful limestone walls and floors.

The fully equipped Gourmet Kitchen contains a Subzero Frig, Viking dishwasher and range, microwave, Granite counters, and custom wide oak board floors from our Connecticut Farm. New cookware and modern appliances make this kitchen a cook's dream. The herb garden with sun dial has a fresh selection of fresh herbs for that favorite meal. The rooms are comfortably furnished with period country antiques with ample lighting. Oriental rugs are a main feature in many of the rooms augmenting the natural beauty of the wide plank floors and cherry trim. Your vacation on the pond will provide a life time of memories for you and your guests.

Some of the many things to do: Walk to downtown Truro for shopping at Jams, Mac's Seafood, or a visit to the Post Office. Truro is known for being a quiet town, and yet there is so much to do in the area. A whale watch boat excursion out of nearby Provincetown or a trip to the Truro Light house are a must. There is a kayak for your use. In town, Highland Light Golf Course is a short drive. The new Truro Library and Town Hall are nice places to visit after a day at the beach. The surfing and swimming opportunities at Ballston Beach are well known. Nearby Wellfleet is a short bike/ drive down Old County Rd and provides additional opportunities for touring the many art galleries, shopping, and quaint walks through this historic village.

Looking Forward to Summer 2014: 2014 will be our 12th rental summer and we look forward to sharing our home with so many wonderful folks as we have over the years.

Great Girls Weekend

We had an awesome girls weekend!! The house is very quaint and has it's charm. We had perfect weather so we spent as much time as possible in the chairs overlooking the pond. We went to the Truro Winery and had dinner in P-town (only 15 mins away). If you want a low key and relaxing weekend, this home is great!

Warm Home

Tom made booking and arrangements for our arrival a dream!

Once we arrived, all of our expectations were exceeded. The charm of this home (not house- home) cannot be overstated. The local shells, and boueys, and maps that decorate the place give it the appropriate tone- and the wooden floors and window frames that come from trees grown on-site by Tom's brother- are just breathtaking. You feel like you are a part of the cape just by being in this house. It mixes rustic with modern convenience.

The quiet of the water, and the beauty of the sunsets was just heaven. At the same time- you can order in (Twisted Sister makes great Italian food) and a very short drive takes you to Provincetown or anywhere else at the end of the Cape that you could possibly want to do.

Our group was also very large (12 adults) and we had no problem finding sleeping arrangements for everyone. I cannot wait to plan a longer trip!

A gem of a house

  • Submitted: Aug 18, 2012

Our family just enjoyed their second year at this wonderful house. The house is impeccably clean and well-maintained, with not even the slightest smell of mildew (a rarity on the Cape). Beds are comfortable and the new linens this year were lovely. While the kitchen is small for the size of the house, it is pretty well stocked for a vacation house and allowed for many wonderful meals. A full gas grill on the back deck is also very good. The outdoor shower is wonderful. There is space for many different activities if you decide to spend the day at the house, and it is convenient to lovely beaches. Our find this year was the Hillside Farm stand on Rte 6, which had wonderful fresh veggies. Every night as we sat watching the sun set over the marsh we said "We HAVE to come back again next year!"- we just asked for the same two weeks for 2013!

Good Family Accomodation

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 30, 2011
  • Stayed: Aug 2011
Picturesque site overlooking pond. Roomy enough for a dozen plus people.
Within easy driving distance of several beautiful beaches, including National Seashore Park. Great space with gas grill for outdoor meals. While township beach fees required from tenants, owner provided documents to obtain same. General store(expensive), post office, other shops close by. Supermarket in P'town, 20 minutes away. House was clean and well maintained upon arrival but lacking adequate bedding, towels, etc. necessitating call to housekeeping service which always responded. Kitchen small for large group but adequately equipped. Open air dining on wharf in Wellfleet always a treat. Area restaurants heavily crowded at usual meal times. Hot water out-door shower. Laundry facilities. Roomy master bedroom suite with private bath facilities but with no bedside table lamps. Easy access to Route 6 for east-west travel.
Owner's Response: Additional new linens and towels are added for this year. The home is a completely restored antique with incredible charm: however, some of the room sizes and configurations do not allow for certain items like bedside lamps in some situations. The quaintness and charm trump some minor shortfalls in funiture location. This is a very honest review from a tenant who has booked the home for three years in a row. I am grateful for their honesty.

Lovely house, spectacular location

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 21, 2011
  • Stayed: Jul 2011
My family rented this house for a vacation in August 2011- we had 7 adults and 5 kids in our group. The house was beautiful, very nicely laid out, clean and comfortable. Perfect for 2-3 families to share. The back play area is basically a "sand box"- the kids were out playing at all hours in the sand! The view of the marsh from the back is spectacular. We saw more birds than you can count, and had many happy arguments about what species we were seeing. The location is perfect- a quick walk/ride to Jams grocery store, very close to bay and ocean beaches. We loved the house so much we've just arranged to rent it again next summer.

Car: recommended

Enjoy spectacular sunsets over the pond and out over Cape Cod Sound while enjoying dinner on the large granite patio set into the sand. Or enjoy a sunset from our large outside shower after sunbathing in privacy on your own dune while sea breezes waft through the dune grasses. We have large mahogany wood decks in front and back, and even one upstairs off the 2nd level master suite overlooking the pond.

Ballston Beach on the ocean, considered by many to be one of Cape Cod's most beautiful and quiet ocean beaches is a short drive or bike ride to the east. Fisher Beach, nearby, is one of the Cape's pristine bay beaches known for its warm waters, beautiful sand and sunset vistas. Both Ballston Beach and Fisher Beach are known for their striped bass and bluefish fisheries. The seashells found throughout this home are from these beaches. Launch your boat at the harbor or take a stroll to Pamet Harbor just a five minute walk down Mill Pond Road.

Other Activities: clamming, bird watching, fly fishing, surfing, kayaking
