Overview

About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 2 or 3

This beautiful and restful four-season cottage near bay and ocean beaches combines the comfort and ease of modern amenities with the charm of exposed beams and natural pine floors. The building, a renovated barn, has two stories, fifteen by twenty feet, with an attached full bathroom. The cottage is now completely solar-powered. Downstairs the open floor plan has a comfortable seating area with a daybed/couch, a dining table, and a fully equipped kitchen. French doors lead to a screened-in porch with table and chairs, creating a sense of continuous space, inside and out. Upstairs is light and airy, with windows looking over the back hill, gardens, and a large cherry tree full of songbirds. There is a high-quality queen bed and single bed by the windows (perfect for reading and daydreaming). The cottage is located on a large property next to a 150-year-old, cape-style farmhouse surrounded by vegetable and flower gardens. Organic vegetables, eggs and honey are all produced on the property and can be purchased when available. Situated in Pond Village in North Truro, bay beaches are just a ten minute walk down historic Pond Road. A two minute walk brings you to the village general store and two cafes, one serving artisanal chocolates made on premises. Ocean beaches are only a ten minute bike ride away. A TV, DVD player, iPod dock and WiFi allow you to connect to the modern world. There is also a basement with a washer/dryer and on-site parking. Summer visits are full of breezes, and winter stays are warmed by a state-of-the art heating system installed in 2013. This is an ideal getaway at any season for two or three people.

About Robert and Janice DuToit

My wife and I are both artists, teachers, and live on the property year round. Our son, who is 7, enjoys nature and raises butterflies in the summer, tends to the chickens, and loves to run and swim. We have spent years renovating and decorating the house and cottage which are both filled with beautiful artwork and good books. We spend a lot of our time cultivating vegetables and flowers, and raise chickens and bees. We eat the food we produce all year and enjoy selling produce to renters and neighbors when available.

Robert and Janice DuToit purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Robert and Janice DuToit chose Cape Cod

We loved the property the first minute we saw it and live in the cottage ourselves all summer and in the main house in winter. We were especially attracted to the rural feel of pond village and being surrounded by abundant nature, animal and bird life and the local culture of artists, tradesman and fisherman.

A unique, quiet, and restful Cape Cod rental.

  • 5 of 5

If you want a Cape Cod experience this is the place for you. If you want to escape to a quiet restful place this is the place for you. The large screened in porch is a real plus. Fully equipped kitchen. The upstairs bedroom has great windows which let in the winds from the ocean.

Located in the heart of the National Seashore. The owners have made sure that even the little things you need are there.

Awesome Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We decided to go to P-Town for a long weekend and chose this cottage for our getaway. We were truly impressed with everything about it. It had everything we needed. Janice & Rob were the best hosts ever! We found our new go to place! ❤️

Quiet, Comfortable, Charming, Good drinking water, Good location, Lovely hosts, Nearby bay beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the cottage during the first week of May. The weather, meh, but we were cozy and warm. There was plenty of light in the cottage, the top floor (bedroom) especially. Early morning sun, birds singing, ahhh. We didn't use the screened-in porch, but it would be a real plus in warm weather. It's on the north side of the cottage so it would be cool in July and August when the beaches and roads are hot. We also enjoyed the books in the cottage, especially art and poetry, and the art on the walls. To top it off, the host family was charming and the village surroundings had a locally owned market where you could get breakfast and lunch, groceries and wine/beer, a chocolate shop, and a restaurant. We would certainly come back again. One caution, there is a steep staircase. No problem for us, but for young children or older people (we're in our 60s)...

Feels Like Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time staying in Janice and Robert's cottage, and I'm writing my second review because I can not say enough wonderful things about them or the cottage! We stayed during a rainy week in April when many things in P-town are not yet open for the season, but we didn't care one bit. The cottage is the perfect place to be lazy on a crummy weather day, a great excuse to stay in your pj's and read, nap, watch DVD's, catch up on emails etc. It has everything you will need during your stay and the DuToit's offer great suggestions of places to eat and hikes in the area. We always look forward to staying there and can't wait to go again, and again, and again... Thank you Janice and Robert for making us feel so welcome!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Janice and Robert have a wonderful and homey cottage close to P-Town and the National Seashore. My son and I stayed for the weekend to get away from the city. The cottage is comfortable and quiet. I ended up sick and Janice offered to cook for me. They went out of their way to make us comfortable. I hope we can come back another time.

The cottage is located on the property of a 150 year old Cape farmhouse in Pond Village and surrounded by the Cape Cod National Seashore. There are many town and National Seashore beaches to choose from. Bike and hiking trails are nearby as well as freshwater ponds for swimming, golf course, and a winery just up the road. Provincetown is ten minutes away and has great restaurants, art galleries and museums, as well as some of the best whale watching trips on the east coast.
