Overview

Truro Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 2 or 3

This beautiful and restful four-season cottage near bay and ocean beaches combines the comfort and ease of modern amenities with the charm of exposed beams and natural pine floors. The building, a renovated barn, has two stories, fifteen by twenty feet, with an attached full bathroom. The cottage is now completely solar-powered. Downstairs the open floor plan has a comfortable seating area with a daybed/couch, a dining table, and a fully equipped kitchen. French doors lead to a screened-in porch with table and chairs, creating a sense of continuous space, inside and out. Upstairs is light and airy, with windows looking over the back hill, gardens, and a large cherry tree full of songbirds. There is a high-quality queen bed and single bed by the windows (perfect for reading and daydreaming). The cottage is located on a large property next to a 150-year-old, cape-style farmhouse surrounded by vegetable and flower gardens. Organic vegetables, eggs and honey are all produced on the property and can be purchased when available. Situated in Pond Village in North Truro, bay beaches are just a ten minute walk down historic Pond Road. A two minute walk brings you to the village general store and two cafes, one serving artisanal chocolates made on premises. Ocean beaches are only a ten minute bike ride away. A TV, DVD player, iPod dock and WiFi allow you to connect to the modern world. There is also a basement with a washer/dryer and on-site parking. Summer visits are full of breezes, and winter stays are warmed by a state-of-the art heating system installed in 2013. This is an ideal getaway at any season for two or three people.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome

About Robert and Janice DuToit

My wife and I are both artists, teachers, and live on the property year round. Our son, who is 7, enjoys nature and raises butterflies in the summer, tends to the chickens, and loves to run and swim. We have spent years renovating and decorating the house and cottage which are both filled with beautiful artwork and good books. We spend a lot of our time cultivating vegetables and flowers, and raise chickens and bees. We eat the food we produce all year and enjoy selling produce to renters and neighbors when available.

Robert and Janice DuToit purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Robert and Janice DuToit chose Truro

We loved the property the first minute we saw it and live in the cottage ourselves all summer and in the main house in winter. We were especially attracted to the rural feel of pond village and being surrounded by abundant nature, animal and bird life and the local culture of artists, tradesman and fisherman.

Adorable, wonderful cottage!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic time! This cottage has everything you need and is cute and tidy as can be. The yard is beautiful, cool, peaceful and full of plants. The owners are a sweet and wonderful family, and we were very well taken care of, without any loss of a sense of privacy.
The location can't be beaten. Just of the main highway, but so quiet. Centrally located on the Upper Cape, an easy drive to Provincetown galleries and restaurants and close to Wellfleet's shops. Beaches, movie theatre, drive-in, minigolf, and food of all kinds just minutes away. You can walk to a local upscale minimart and chocolatier.
All the comforts of home and more! I think my favorite parts were the wonderfully soft sheets and the resident chickens.

Lovely Cottage Experience

  • 5 of 5
I just stayed at Janice and Rob's cottage last weekend and could not have been happier! This was my first experience with VRBO and my first time in the Cape. The cottage is beautiful and has everything you could possibly need- from maps to a fully equipped kitchen to blankets galore! Janice and Rob were so kind, gave us great local recommendations, and were available to help when we had questions about the cottage. The cottage is in a great location. Town is a short drive and there is a local beach within walking distance. I highly recommend the sand dune hike- the best experience of our weekend! We will be staying here again :)

We WILL Return!

  • 5 of 5
If you love nature and genuine people, you will love staying here! Though our stay was short, it was one we hope to repeat soon. The cottage is immaculate; gleaming hardwood floors, lots of light, and a cozy, private screened porch. The pictures portray the cottage perfectly! The location is ideal; offers the feel of a small town while being so close to spectacular beaches on the National Seashore.

Thanks, Janice and Rob!

Lovely aspect , bright, clean and well equipped

  • 5 of 5
Myself and my husband were visiting from the UK we loved our holiday in this cottage which faced onto the private well kept garden area. The bed room was sunny and newly refurbished. The Kitchen was well equipped and the lounge sitting area along with the covered porch had a very relaxing and comfortable feel. The modern bathroom / shower room was clean and comfortable however the recent installation of the outdoor shower facility was GREAT FUN and a new experience to us Brits. The owners were very friendly and knowlegeable and were a big help in advising on the local sites to see and things to do locally. .... I would HIGHLY recommend both the cottage and truro / provincetown to all.

We felt instantly at home in this sweet, sun-filled, spotlessly clean and obviously well-loved and -cared for for cottage. From the moment we arrived, hosts Rob and Janice were welcoming and generous, offering terrific information on activities we were in search of, including: gorgeous beach and forest walks, terrific art galleries, food markets, yoga, artisan chocolate(!) and more. Kitchen is terrifically equipped for any sort of cooking. An outdoor grill and picnic table, plus dining tables in screened porch and in cottage provide opportunity to enjoy indoor and outdoor dining. We loved being surrounded by the host's own organic garden, chickens and the general greenery of the property, and loved having the option to purchase delicious kale, sun gold tomatoes and arugula from Rob and Janice, which was like having our own personal farmer's market just steps from our door! The outdoor shower is a wonderful extra! It is a lovely and easy walk or drive to both bay and ocean beaches, and it was beyond magical seeing hundreds of seals sun-bathing on a big sandbank just 20 feet from beach shore, and a frolicking whale(!!) from the beach (bring binoculars!). If you forget a book, there are great ones to choose from in the cottage, + strong Wifi connect, if needed. We cannot wait to return to Truro and to this sweet cottage. Thank you so much, Rob and Janice, for your cozy, quiet, peaceful and beautiful home away from home.

Great Time-Great Hosts!

  • 5 of 5
This contemporary, yet rustic home is full of light, peace, and comfort! My partner and I were looking for a nice vacation spot without having to break the bank. We lucked out! It's a short walk to a nearby pond, which is just another (very) short walk to the beach. We even brought our bikes and were able to bike into Ptown! It's a great, quiet spot that is removed enough for it to be serene, yet also placed close enough for it not be totally isolated. Rob and Janice were kind, available for questions and suggestions, and even had HUGE chicken eggs that we were able to enjoy in the updated kitchen. Being able to prepare meals and enjoy them in a comfortable and relaxed manner enabled us to not only save money, but enjoy the food farmed locally, which we prepared at the house! We will absolutely be staying here again and HIGHLY recommend this home for others looking for a peaceful getaway!
