Overview

Cape Cod Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Delightful one room cottage with sleeping loft with queen mattress

Situated in Provincetown's historic West End, this classic free-standing cottage recalls the days of the sleepy fishing village and artist colony that is quintessential Old Cape Cod. The larger of two cottages, it is nestled in a secluded garden off of quiet Mechanic Street. Step foot onto the large deck and landscaped patio to relax in the Adirondack chairs. Open the door to discover a bright and airy space under the peaked roof. Tastefully updated with bead board ceilings and hardwood floors, the living area includes a love seat for intimate conversations. Prepare cocktails and hors d'oeuvres in the galley kitchen then enjoy a romantic dinner in the separate dining area. Climb the ladder to the sleeping loft with its queen size mattress for two. The fully appointed bathroom includes a shower stall and a washer/dryer. Enjoy all the comforts of home and be just a few steps away from shopping, restaurants, bars and entertainment on Commercial Street or a short stroll to the sandy beach. Please see the reviews from our previous guests and enjoy our video tour to fully appreciate this little bit of Provincetown heaven.

Idyllic Vacation Getaway/True R&R

  • 5 of 5

This cottage on Mechanic Street is, in a word, idyllic. The interior has an elegant layout and is very well maintained and fully equipped. It is in a perfect location: in walking distance to town (as well as the Stop & Shop for groceries/cooking supplies) yet far enough away to be very private.

The property owner, Steve, is wonderful to deal with and so is Frank, the property manager who met my husband and me at the cottage with the key. Both of them are kind and professional. Frank recommended (1) Relish, a great place nearby for sandwiches, cookies (get the chocolate chocolate chip espresso cookie), and coffee and (2) a nice hike across the West End Breakwater/Rock Jetty to Long Point that we enjoyed very much (bring the cookies with you).

This was our first trip to Cape Cod, and we look forward to returning again and renting this cottage for the classic American vacation experience.

Great Cottage Option in Great Ptown Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved this rental! We’ve been vacationing in Ptown for over 15 years and recently rented 12½ Mechanic for 2 weeks in August. It was our first time renting a cottage-style unit. The amenities, utilization of space, natural light, outside deck, privacy, cleanliness, friendly owner and location – ALL combined to make it a great rental option; one we will consider again.

Perfect vacation space for two.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed this cottage. It had everything we needed. It is in a great location for walking everywhere. Rarely needed the car. Having the bed in the loft really opened up the space. We highly recommend it.

The Perfect Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful property perfectly located, maintained, and priced. It was well-stocked with essentials, clean as a whistle, and surprisingly private - a rarity in Provincetown. Steve was a pleasure to deal with, too. I'd happily re-book.

Impressive Cottage Experience

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I are extremely pleased with our choice of this property. The owner provided everything we could possibly have needed during our stay. Although we enjoyed several fine restaurants- all within walking distance, we also were able to prepare full meals in the amply equipped kitchen. The deck was perfect for morning coffee and evening cocktails.

The loft is cozy and the ladder is easily mastered. We found the futon mattress to be quite comfortable. The air conditioner is very quiet and efficient. Additionally, the property is completely clean.

Parking is a quick five minute walk, but we only used our car to go the the beach- though one day we walked to Flyer's and caught the ferry to Long Point, so a car isn't necessary for beach lovers.

We look forward to renting this property again!

Perfect Ptown Gettaway

  • 5 of 5

I rented this cottage last week with my partner and we could not have been happier with our stay. The cottage was very clean, and conveniently equipped with wi-fi, laundry, air conditioning and all of your basic kitchen needs.

The outdoor patio/deck area is the perfect setting to drink coffee, read a book, enjoy a refreshing cocktail or just sit back and watch the native bird life. I also was particularly found of a cute black cat that would promptly visit us each afternoon and purr at our feet. ;)

The cottage is close to the downtown area, an easy walk to all the shops, bars, and restaurants on Commercial if you are in the mood for going out. The front deck also provides a secluded, private sanctuary for those times when you just want to relax and get away from the world.

It is a fairly easy walk to the beach, although I would recommend timing your jaunt during low tide and making use of the jetty to shorten the walk a bit, unless of course, you rent bikes.

I would definitely recommend this cottage to any couple or single person looking to say in Provincetown. There is also a pull out sofa bed in case you have a friend in boston who wants to stay for a night.

Steve the landlord is incredibly helpful and reliable which made our stay even more pleasant. I will definitely rent this cottage again for my next visit. Wish it were sooner!
