A Special Place

  • 5 of 5

Had a simply wonderful time at this special home. It was wonderful to be surrounded by interesting books, paintings, artwork and lovely gardens. The yard gets wonderful sun, and the water fountain and special plantings make the outdoor area as pretty and relaxing as you hope it might be.

The location is convenient to all parts of the Outer Cape, and there are restaurants and beaches in walking and biking distance. I'd never hesitate to book here again, and recommend it to anyone who loves the Outer Cape.

Years of Summer Happiness in North Truro, MA

  • 5 of 5

For the past six years I and my partner, cats and occasional family and friend guests have enjoyed the lovely setting and welcoming hospitality of Irene Lipton and Phil Smith's house on Shore Road in North Truro. The house itself is perfect for a couple or small family, or 2 couples, with 3 full bedrooms, 2 full baths plus outdoor shower, a marvelously well equipped kitchen, and a delightful back yard resplendent with tall trees and nice plantings. We like to cook and have really enjoyed the kitchen's culinary amenities, the gas grill and picnic table in the back, and the full dining room looking onto the garden. The house is situated just up the hill from the very convenient Salty Market/wine store, cafe, post office, and best chocolate shop in the area. It's a 10-minute walk to the bay beach and a 5-minute drive or bike ride to the océan and around 12 mins. to drive to Provincetown (20 minutes by bike along the beautiful bay). The house is also just a few minutes' walk from the Truro Library, which has a terrific collection of children's books and videos, computers, and a grand piano I've greatly appreciated being able to use. Of course, the house itself has quite reliable wi-fi, but it's nice to have the library nearby for printing documents, reading the latest papers or magazines, and for the very interesting lectures and other public events its staff organizes (lots for kids, including story time and terrific hands-on nature activities). The library also has a great outdoor playground that my grandchildren really enjoyed. Most of all, Irene and Phil are the landlords from heaven. Not only are they both working artists, so the house is filled with their beautiful work as well as tons of books; but also they are warm and delightful people - really friends. Staying in their house one has the benefit of privacy while at the same time, since they spend the summer months in a smaller house down the hill from the main house, they are always around if you have a problem or a question and tremendously accommodating to their guests' needs. I feel so fortunate to have found this house and hope to return many times.

Lovely eclectic old cape house with beautiful relaxing garden full of birds to relax and watch

  • 4 of 5

This North Truro house is in a great location -- convenient to restaurants, stores, beaches, and the shuttle bus to Ptown. It's a lovely house with a lived in feeling. The beautiful backyard with birdfeeder is one of the best features. We literally spent hours sitting at the dining room table looking out the screen doors and watching the birds, bunnies and chipmunks. Our dog also loved it. The owners live in the property next door and are available and responsive if needed. The house is filled with books of every kind; lots to look at and read, and the kitchen is well stocked with herbs and spices from the Atlantic Spice Company. We spent two quiet, peaceful beautiful weeks enjoying all the Outer Cape has to offer.

Beautiful, comfortable home away from home

  • 5 of 5

When we first saw this property on Homeaway, we had some concerns about all of the art work & objects that were displayed in the many photos. Would we feel that they might be precious, and extra care would be needed, which might not be the most relaxing? What we found on our first of now several stays, was that all of this art was inspiring and not in the least intimidating. They are indeed precious articles, but are so much part of the great experience that is this property. Truly a gem for art lovers.

Irene & Phil’s house is very comfortable, very much a home, which it is to them during the off season. It has everything that you would expect in a well provisioned home, from a nicely stocked kitchen to comfortable beds to 2 full baths. You can sit at the dining room table, and view the yard & gardens, and watch the activity around the bird feeder & bird baths.

Another thing that is worth pointing out is that, while the house fronts right on Rte. 6A, it is amazing how quiet & private this place is. When you are in the house or in the back yard, you really don’t notice the activity on the road.

With it being right on 6A, you are really close to everything the outer Cape has to offer. P-town is just a short drive, ocean & bay beaches are either within walking/biking distance or just a short drive away. There is a small commercial area about ¼ mile away, which includes a small market, a chocolatier, & Truro Vineyard just down the road.

Beautiful Retreat at the tip of the Cape.

  • 5 of 5

The house is exactly as it looks in the photographs. Very clean, well maintained, well equipped felt like home, or the home of your favorite eclectic aunt. Beautifully decorated with interesting art and books in every room, on almost any subject for readers of all ages. The backyard is peaceful and great for outdoor barbeques with lots of birds visiting the large feeder. The location is excellent, very easy to get to all the wonderful beaches of the upper cape and a quick drive to Provincetown down route 6 or 6A. You can also take a shuttle bus, which picks you up right in front of the house into Ptown if you don't want to drive. Some highlights are the whale watch and dune tours out of Provincetown, as well as the many wonderful restaurants. The owners of the house were very friendly and helpful and even helped me get a new tube for the flat tire on my bike. The area is also great for bike riding, my son rode his bike everyday into Ptown, around a 14 mile round trip.

A special spot in N Truro

  • 5 of 5

We have had wonderful visits to Cape Cod each year staying at this place. It is not a typical rental as it is filled with wonderful artwork and books and momentos - which makes it so much more personal and interesting. The property is well laid out and well maintained. There are yards in the front and back for relaxing and eating. Easy access to bay and ocean beaches and local restaurants, etc. The owners are very attentive and friendly and responsive.
