QUINTESSENTIAL WEST END COTTAGE - 12 1/2 MECHANIC STREET

Provincetown Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Delightful one room cottage with sleeping loft with queen mattress

Situated in Provincetown's historic West End, this classic free-standing cottage recalls the days of the sleepy fishing village and artist colony that is quintessential Old Cape Cod. The larger of two cottages, it is nestled in a secluded garden off of quiet Mechanic Street. Step foot onto the large deck and landscaped patio to relax in the Adirondack chairs. Open the door to discover a bright and airy space under the peaked roof. Tastefully updated with bead board ceilings and hardwood floors, the living area includes a love seat for intimate conversations. Prepare cocktails and hors d'oeuvres in the galley kitchen then enjoy a romantic dinner in the separate dining area. Climb the ladder to the sleeping loft with its queen size mattress for two. The fully appointed bathroom includes a shower stall and a washer/dryer. Enjoy all the comforts of home and be just a few steps away from shopping, restaurants, bars and entertainment on Commercial Street or a short stroll to the sandy beach. Please see the reviews from our previous guests and enjoy our video tour to fully appreciate this little bit of Provincetown heaven.

IDYLLIC VACATION GETAWAY/TRUE R&R

Idyllic Vacation Getaway/True R&R
  • 5 of 5
This cottage on Mechanic Street is, in a word, idyllic. The interior has an elegant layout and is very well maintained and fully equipped. It is in a perfect location: in walking distance to town (as well as the Stop & Shop for groceries/cooking supplies) yet far enough away to be very private.

The property owner, Steve, is wonderful to deal with and so is Frank, the property manager who met my husband and me at the cottage with the key. Both of them are kind and professional. Frank recommended (1) Relish, a great place nearby for sandwiches, cookies (get the chocolate chocolate chip espresso cookie), and coffee and (2) a nice hike across the West End Breakwater/Rock Jetty to Long Point that we enjoyed very much (bring the cookies with you).

This was our first trip to Cape Cod, and we look forward to returning again and renting this cottage for the classic American vacation experience.

PERFECT PTOWN GETTAWAY

  • 5 of 5
I rented this cottage last week with my partner and we could not have been happier with our stay. The cottage was very clean, and conveniently equipped with wi-fi, laundry, air conditioning and all of your basic kitchen needs.

The outdoor patio/deck area is the perfect setting to drink coffee, read a book, enjoy a refreshing cocktail or just sit back and watch the native bird life. I also was particularly found of a cute black cat that would promptly visit us each afternoon and purr at our feet. ;)

The cottage is close to the downtown area, an easy walk to all the shops, bars, and restaurants on Commercial if you are in the mood for going out. The front deck also provides a secluded, private sanctuary for those times when you just want to relax and get away from the world.

It is a fairly easy walk to the beach, although I would recommend timing your jaunt during low tide and making use of the jetty to shorten the walk a bit, unless of course, you rent bikes.

I would definitely recommend this cottage to any couple or single person looking to say in Provincetown. There is also a pull out sofa bed in case you have a friend in boston who wants to stay for a night.

Steve the landlord is incredibly helpful and reliable which made our stay even more pleasant. I will definitely rent this cottage again for my next visit. Wish it were sooner!

COZY CLEAN CONDO

  • 5 of 5
Great little condo in the beautiful west end of Provincetown. Conveniently located near shopping, beach and nightlife. This condo is extremely clean, tidy and well-equipped with all of the essentials you will need for the week. Perfect size for a single person or a couple. The loft bed is very comfortable. The owner is extremely organized, polite and easy to work with on the rental details. I would highly recommend this condo and would stay there again.

FINALLY! FUNCTIONAL MINIMALISM!

  • 5 of 5
This is a clean and functional example of small space living with very little to no distractions. Climb a ladder to your bed/loft which someone saw and said - what do you do if you have to pee in the middle of the night?! Reply: you climb down the ladder, fool! If that's a quirk for you there are other places for you - and leave this one for "us"! We totally enjoy'd the quiet and large, well planned, gated deck space. I found it to be exactly as advertised. The owner and house caretaker were both very easy to make arrangements with and also very pleasant.

PERFECT COTTAGE IN IDEAL LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
I had the good fortune to spend a good part of the summer in this delightful cottage. I made all the arrangements with Steve, the owner, who was very easy to work with. He was patient with my questions and quick to respond to my every need. The cottage is a free standing building that shares a garden with another, slightly smaller cottage. Located in the West End, the location is just far enough away from the central part of town to feel quiet and private but it is only a five minute walk away from the heart of Provincetown dining, shopping, and art galleries. There is a small beach just two blocks down the street and Herring Cove beach is just ten minutes away by bike. With such a great location, we had no need for a car all summer. The cottage itself is ideal for two people. It is immaculately clean, roomy and comfortable. The sleeping loft is easy to access by ladder. The kitchen was a perfect size and had everything we needed to prepare our meals. The best part is the deck and garden patio. I highly recommend it as a great spot to sip your morning coffee or enjoy an after-beach cocktail. I look forward to spending more time at this cottage in the future. Unfortunately, I'll only be able to spend one, as opposed to many weeks there this summer. I highly recommend it to everyone.

CUTE COTTAGE GEM WITH PERFECT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We visit P'town all the time and often we stay in larger home rentals with other couples. This time it was just the two of us and I must say that 12 1/2 Mechanic Street is pretty unbeatable.

The location in the West End is phenomenal. We picked up bikes for trail riding and the beach but rarely needed them for town. It was faster to walk than to ride in and lock up the bikes in most cases. It's just a couple of streets west of Perry's Wine Shop if that helps, landmark wise.

The cottage is spotless, well-appointed and thoughtfully organized from a spatial standpoint. I had concerns about the loft before I got there but it turned out to be cozy and a non-issue.

We struggled at times to connect to the local WiFi but worst case, Joe's is just down the street with free WiFi and great coffee.

One of the best features of this little home is the front patio / deck. It's a great place to read a book, drink your morning coffee or relax with friends over a beer.

Highly recommend this place -- particularly during the good weather months -- if you are solo or a couple and want an easy, charming cottage near the heart of town. Great stuff and the landlord, Steve, could not have been nicer or easier to work with...
