IDYLLIC COTTAGE IN LEAFY GLEN NEAR THE OCEAN

Truro Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bath, living room, kitchen, pantry, sleeps 2

The cottage is located on Truro Center Road near the top of the hill. It is not on Rte 6 as the google map may make you believe.

Spring is a lovely time of year here on the Cape with the lush emerald green of new grasses, the fresh spring flowers, the return of the Hummingbirds, and, of course, our rates are lower. It is a time of freshness and renewal.

We have wrap around oceans here, so you will rarely stray far from the Atlantic Ocean, Cape Cod Bay or the Pamet River estuary. Truro has some of the most beautiful beaches on the Cape--Ballston, Longnook, Head of the Meadow, Corn Hill. All the beaches are about five to ten minutes away.

Our guests have called this a 'fairytale' cottage, but we call it the Humming Bird cottage. Most people wait until July and August to come to the Cape, but May and June are magical times too.

Sitting just below a pretty barn, the cottage is nestled in a leafy dell with verdant trees enfolding it. If you like, you can eat your meals on the deck. There is an umbrella, table and chairs and a gas grill and a garden with flowers and, more often than not, young rabbits hopping around.

The cottage has high speed internet and HD TV, a new washer and dryer, and a gas grill on the patio. The living room has a Chickering piano, original art on the walls, and a dining area overlooking the patio. There is a summer blue bedroom with a queen-size bed, big closet, and a kitchen with a pantry. There are whisper quiet ceiling fans in each room, and an air conditioner if needed.

Wellfleet and Provincetown are a ten minute drive for memorable dining, shopping, and live theater. The Julie Harris Stage in Wellfleet, the Provincetown Theater, and art galleries and museums are less than 15 minutes away by car or the nearby Flex bus. Golfing at the Highland Links overlooking the Atlantic is like golfing in paradise. Nearby, are the historic Cape Cod Lighthouse and the Truro Historical Museum.

The School for Arts at Castle Hill is right around the corner if you would like to take a class for part of the day while you are here. So you can choose to rest and relax on our pristine beaches, and at the same time, enrich your soul.

There is a good choice of restaurants in Truro. Wellfleet and Provincetown, and some overlook the water. Enjoy!

Guestbook comments from the owner
A wonderful hideaway, we very much enjoyed the beautiful views, quiet nights and cozy setting. The beach was perfect the weather the same (although apparently hurricane "Irene" is bearing down on us). P.S. Loved the humming birds.

PERFECT BEACH AND REST HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
We were always surprised by how well thought out things were in this house. It is well decorated. With the views onto land and landscaping, and with a large patio, it felt big enough at all times, but we were also still close to one another. The house is far enough away from the main road that we heard none of that traffic noise, ever! It's located far from the madding crowd, and yet still close enough to Wellfleet and several great beaches reachable by bike. The site is cute, with a "kayak barn" next door, where we stored our bikes and parked our car near to as well -- not in your main sight lines, but still real close. We always felt at home, but better... since at the end of our week we were incredibly well rested! We grilled fish on the barbecue every night -- mostly from the Mac's fish store within walking distance at Jam's corner, that same corner where they give live music performances every Thursday evening. We enjoyed meeting Mary and David who made sure our stay at the cottage went fine.

Nous avons beaucoup aimé notre séjour au cottage; tout y est bien pensé, et c'est impeccable. Nous reviendrons avec plaisir.

Owner's Response: David and I feel grateful that renting our "Hummingbird" Cottage to vacationers has been a positive experience. We are always seeking ways to make a person's vacation more memorable. In our own kitchen window we have a Hummingbird feeder to watch the Hummingbirds feed from April into early Fall. We put the same kind of feeder in the kitchen window of the cottage, and everyone who has stayed there has commented on the thrill of seeing Hummingbirds close up (maybe for the first time). It keeps you close to nature at all times.

PERFECT FOR A GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We went there for our tenth anniversary trip and totally loved this little cottage. When we pulled in there were literally dozens of rose buses, daffodils and other flowering plants in full bloom. It really is in a quiet little glen that’s just fantastic to sit outside and enjoy. Mary left us a loaf of freshly-baked artisan bread on the counter that was just terrific. She also left a fabulous book of recommendations of practically everything from which beaches had the best sunrises/sunsets, where to eat, where to shop and where to go. Our only regret was that we didn’t have the time to do everything that she recommended. We weren’t in the cottage a lot because we were busy running around the Cape, but when we were there it was perfectly sized for us. We highly recommend this for any couples looking to spend some quality time together.

WE LOVED THIS COTTAGE!

  • 5 of 5
We loved this cottage and we loved Truro too! Perfect for a couple in a very private spot, clean and quiet and better than it appears in the photos. Mary is wonderful and was very attentive to our needs. There's a great restaurant (Blackfish) just down the hill and our favorite beach was Ballston. There's a binder full of information and suggestions from Mary when you arrive and we found them to be very helpful. Whenever we ventured out of Truro, upon our return we became more and more confident and pleased that we had chosen this spot for our vacation! Thanks, Mary!

LOVELY COTTAGE, WONDERFUL HOST

  • 5 of 5
We very much enjoyed our stay at Hummingbird Cottage. It is larger than most one-bedroom rentals, meticulously clean and beautifully appointed -- lovely paint colors and the owner's art on the walls -- great deck, washer/dryer. It even comes with a kayak and a piano! Mary is a warm and helpful host/owner whose tips for enjoying the area are great. Location feels private although it adjoins the owner's house, pretty green yard, close to bay and ocean beaches and "Downtown Truro" -- Jam's, the post office, and a fish store.

Owner's Response: It is so gratifying to have guests who appreciate the loving care that goes into our cottage, and I am impressed by the quality of the people who stay here. This was a couple who knew how to enjoy themselves and take advantage of all the area has to offer. I thank them for taking the time to write a review.

THE PERFECT HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
My name is Florentina. I live in St. Paul MN and I am a huge fan of this little cottage. I spent the week here in July of 2008. The cottage was clean, well maintained, and comfortable. It is located near the Ocean. If you are into nature and the outdoors, this place is perfect for you. This place is also a nice little romantic getaway. There is plenty of privacy and is perfect for a couple celebrating their love. I would recommend this cottage to a friend- in fact I have recommended the cottage to some of my closest friends. I am planning on coming back this summer. I can't wait to experience all the greatness this place has to offer in the future again. I hpoe this review was helpful to all of you fellow travel seekers. This is a 10 out of 10. Enjoy!
