Quaint salt-box, 5 minutes to Truro ocean and bay beaches, a short ride into Provincetown. You can stroll to the village of N.Truro for breakfast if you don’t want to cook, and to the Truro Vineyards for a wine tasting. There is easy access to the Town Loop bus, which can take you to Truro Center, Provincetown, and the beaches. Charmingly furnished, the cottage sleeps two in the bedroom and can sleep one on the pull-out couch. Cathedral ceilings, skylights, and windows let in the Cape light and breezes, or turn on the central air humidity is in the air. It has a full sized bathroom, and the kitchen has granite countertops, new appliances including a dishwasher and microwave, and all of your cooking utensils. A sliding glass door takes you onto the lovely private deck with gas grill, steps to the large, private outdoor shower, and access to the full basement with a washer and dryer. Swimming pool is less than 200 feet away for those swims after a day at the beach.

About Richard

Beth and I live year-round in Truro, less than a mile from the cottage. That means if you need anything, or have any questions, you get to deal directly with us - face to face if you want - versus through a real estate rental agency person!

Richard purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Richard chose Truro

The cottage is in the back of the small cottage community, so it backs up to woods and you have a small, grassy yard as well. Plenty of space to put your vacation stuff - such as kayaks, beach toys, bikes, and any other 'stuff'.

What makes this cottage unique

The best part of being in Truro is the quiet, yet it is only 10 miles from Provincetown, which has just about everything you can imagine. Also, within ten minutes there are at least six town and National Seashore beaches, on the Bay or on the Ocean - no long drives required!

Addendum to first review

  • 5 of 5
My previous review might have left a bad impression and I just had to correct that:

Our stay was fantastic and the cottage (more like a small house, really) was perfectly appointed and very clean (I had prefaced my previous comment with my own obsessiveness but realize that it may still have left a negative impression, which is completely unwarranted).

In fact, I could spend the whole summer there and be quite content...

I will go a bit further and say that Rich and Beth go above and beyond what you'd expect to ensure that you enjoy your stay. In terms of quality Hoteliers, they are definitely among the tops.

I would highly recommend this cottage, even though it might affect its availability to me in years to come :-)

Better Than Expected!

  • 4 of 5
The photos don't do the cottage justice; it is even nicer than it looks!

The only slightly negative aspects were a sofa bed mattress that was less than comfy, a bedroom door that needs planing (it wouldn't close) and its hinges need a dab of oil and the bathroom had no towel racks.

I may be a bit obsessive, but the shower stall could've been a titch cleaner. Still, after 5 minutes, I had it up to my standards and it was all that was needed to make it roomy, bright and airy!

Other than that, the unit is private, quiet, well appointed (it had "everything"!). Everything is top notch, new and of excellent quality.

The pool area is lovely! Atop a hill, on common grounds, it gets a nice breeze that made a good sunny lounging time into a perfect poolside lounge time!

Our stay was marvelous...no...idyllic!

Thanks to Rich and Beth for sharing such a fantastic location!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback! Sorry about the sofa bed in the living room, it's only three years old and we thought it was one of the better ones we could find - but, you know sofa beds!!!

As soon as we get an open day I'll fix that door and oil the hinges! As far as the shower, I dare not give that feedback to my wife, who does the cleaning!!!!

Thanks for visiting - please come back again!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5
My friend and I stayed here and it was so clean, updated and very well maintained. The owners left us everything we needed. We did not have to inquire about anything. Thank you so much. It was a great stay. I would defintely recommend this place to someone instead of staying in a hotel/motel. Thanks so much Rich and Beth!!!!
