Homeowner - Mariellen Serena purchased this cottage in 2003
This Truro cottage has it all - great views, great space - and every possible kitchen implement you could want! Plus lounge chairs, beach chairs, linens for ourselves as well as old towels for our dogs' use. Absolutely nothing has been forgotten.
The Gem is a very lovely cottage. It is situated on the beach of Cape Cod Bay in a beautiful, tranquil setting. Mariellen has provided everything one needs and has furnished the home artfully. All you have to do is bring in your groceries and relax. We are looking forward to another visit.
This place, The Gem, is probably my favorite place in the world. It's the highlight of my year, the thing that keeps me going through the long, dark winter. The sense of peace is incredible; the breeze, the sound of the waves, the beautiful light. There's nothing I would change about it. As long as you bring your groceries with you, there's no reason to leave and you won't want to! The Gem is comfortable, clean, private and beautiful, everything you could possibly want. Mariellen has taken pains to refine the space over the years, creating marvelous outdoor spaces, and soothing indoor spaces. Every time we go, it's even better than the year before. No cookie cutter decor, either. Everything here has been created and placed with care and thought. The bed is comfortable, the linens and towels high quality. Honestly, the photos don't do it justice. Booking with Mariellen is easy, and she's a very responsive and respectful host. If you're looking to experience the beauty of the outer Cape and the Cape Cod experience, you can do no better than The Gem.
The cottage was exactly as described, and very clean and beautifully
maintained. Mariellen the owner is very helpful. There's a rose garden, an herb garden, an amazing outdoor shower, a great outdoor eating patio with gas grill and a fabuolous deck in back overlooking dunes and ocean. I'd recommend it and would be very happy to come back!
This is one of those places and experiences that you want to keep a secret because it's so exceptional. The sound of the waves, the beautiful private beach, the outstanding outdoor kitchen and shower, the charm and the location -- who could want for more? Mariellen is a terrific host who provides all of the right touches that make you feel like THE GEM is your own home.
What a wonderful find – you will not be disappointed. The prior reviews are all accurate. The Gem was much more than we expected and the location was perfect. Clean. Great view. The beach just steps away. We felt like we were stepping back in time to old Cape Cod in this cute cottage with all the modern conveniences. Thank you Mariellen – you and your “masterpiece” are both Gems! :)
