About Sylvia Russianoff

My mother bought this home which was originally an artist's studio in the early 1950's . Over the years she added two bedroom wings and a second bathroom. I have been coming here since I was a young child and now it is owned by my family since my mother died in 2000. When I inherited it I did a major renovation but tried to keep the original feel of the home. It is truly a magical setting filled with the incredible Truro light that has attracted artists to Truro for years.

Why Sylvia Russianoff chose Truro

An airy light filled home with all of the modern conveniences yet retains the old time Cape Cod beach house feel. There is incredible privacy as you are surrounded by 8 acres as well as National Seashore property. Fisher Beach is a short lovely walk from our property. It truly is a magical setting that is difficult to capture in photographs. You must experience it for yourself to understand!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Sylvia,I wanted to join Mette and let you know how much I personally enjoyed my stay at your house in Truro. The entire experience was wonderful – actually - magical. Mette and I are now thinking/dreaming of renting the house again next September, if available. We will be in contact you as our plans are made.By the way, I was curious to know if you are related to Leon Russianoff of Julliard School? If so, it makes the experience even more wonderful foe me.Regards Jerry ScezneyWheat Ridge, Colorado

This is an ideal location within a short drive or bike ride from New England's most beautiful beaches. The house is extraordinarily well equipped, and the owner thoughtful and attentive. My stay exemplified what we all hope a vacation should look like. I cannot recommend the house, the owner and the location highly enough.

Nice location but disappointing for the price

  • 2 of 5

This house is on a very nice piece of property, as the pictures indicate. It is also large enough to comfortably sleep 6. However, there are many deficiencies for a rental at this price point. The only queen bed is in a loft that is wide open to the living room and also contains a twin, so there is no privacy. The nicest room only has a double bed in it, which is not comfortable for two adults. The loft is not safe for children or older adults as the stairs are very narrow and steep and there is nothing to prevent a small child from falling down from an opening at the top of the stairs. One bathroom is very old with a stall shower with a non-working light. The second bathroom is half renovated. The refrigerator did not have an ice-maker. The coffee maker is very old. The dry feature on the dishwasher did not work. Almost every dish is chipped or cracked. Some of the furniture in the living room is literally falling apart, including the coffee table and one sofa. The interior of the house needs to be repainted. The piano is out of tune. Although the area off the back has the lovely view, it was very difficult to use, as the in-ground sprinklers doused them every morning, so the cushions were soaking almost the whole week that we were there. The linens are quite old and most of the towels are stained. Also, be careful to read the fine print. The owner expects the renters to clean the house themselves (return to condition found in), including washing and drying all the linens and folding them. Check out is at 10 am, so this is extremely challenging. At this price point, it is usual to have a professional cleaning service clean the bathrooms and kitchen and much more hygienic than relying on the prior guests to do so. We asked the owner if we could pay for cleaners and she said she could not arrange it. Since we needed to leave early on the last day, she did arrange for a laundry service to do the wash and we paid by the pound for it. But again, we have rented many times and have never been in a similar situation of having to make special arrangements for laundry.

A perfect week in Truro

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to let you know we had a wonderful vacation in your home. What a special place. It was so relaxing and the view was unbelievable. It was so hard to leave. Thank you for always getting back to me when I had a question. My husband and I would definitely be interested in renting the house again. Our boys loved exploring the property. It was the best trip we've had to the Cape so far. Thank you again for everything, Truro is our favorite place on the Cape.

We were so charmed by this house - the view, the serenity and the peacefulness. You have done a marvelous job of making it so comfortable and well stocked without feeling stuffy. It gave me the feeling of the "real" Cape Cod that keeps me coming back every year. It's a very special place and I hope to return. Thank you for sharing this little slice of heaven!

The best of both worlds

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful setting - private and comfortable with easy access to beautiful beaches and sophisticated restaurants and nightlife. A classic Cape Cod experience! The listing was better than described - clean, well maintained and charming. My partner and I had a wonderful time.
