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 the delightful 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 and WiFi allow you to connect to the modern world. There is basic cable, and newly-installed Apple TV with Netflix and many other venues to watch. There is also a basement with a washer/dryer and on-site parking. The Owners, Rob and Janice, are gracious hosts, respectful of your privacy and there for anything you may need. 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.

My wife and I are both artists, teachers, and live on the property year round. Our son, who is 13, 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.
firstname.lastname@example.org purchased this Cottage in 2000
Why email@example.com chose North Truro
We loved the property the first minute we saw it and lived in the cottage ourselves for 12 summers. 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. We call it paradise, and the best kept secret on the outer Cape!

Peaceful, beautiful, comfortable, perfectly conceived cottage
This cottage, in my book, is total perfection, I could not have been happier there and wouldn't change a thing about it. It's a quiet, comfortable, contemplative oasis surrounded by beautiful landscaping, birds, bees and fireflies giving a feeling of total nature and simplicity while being only steps away from the neighborhood market, businesses, and busses - not to mention proximity to both bay and ocean beaches (I got around on just a bike, didn't need a car). Janice, Rob and Alexander are every bit as lovely as their cottage, they are incredibly kind and generous hosts. I felt so at home there - actually better than at home. It had all the essentials aand was a cozy place to read, cook aand listen to public radio. I feel so lucky to have found them and their very special gem of a cottage!
A perfect place for a time away
It's hard to write a review and not sound over the top, but this cottage is a true gem. The moment you arrive your time away begins. Although so close to the main route running the length of the Cape, while staying here, you'd never know it, as the lush, green property is a perfect buffer to the hustle and bustle nearby (though, one of the great reasons to stay here is because, unlike some parts of the Cape, in North Truro you really feel as though you can escape hustle and bustle).
The interior of the cottage is lovely, and perfectly comfortable for two. The kitchen is well-appointed, the living space with it's couch is a great place to lounge, relax, and read; screened-in porch allows for a tranquil way to sit and enjoy dinner, or just sip your morning coffee while listening to the sound of their chickens; and oh the books! There is wonderful variety and selection of books to idly page through during a quiet evening. The upstairs bedroom is spacious, light-filled and airy. There really is nothing like waking up in the morning to a gentle breeze on your face and the sound of birds. The bed is comfortable and makes for an easy time falling asleep.
If you're looking for a wonderful and relaxing place to get away, yet still enjoy the charms of the Cape, this cottage is perfect.
Comfy & Cozy
We stayed for a weekend to relax and Janice was a fantastic host! She was passionate, positive, with great recommendations for dining. The kitchen was well stocked, bright and easy to navigate. Bed was super comfortable to sleep in, and shower was fantastic! Overall, the cottage was comfortable, super cozy, and peaceful. It was the perfect relaxation remedy and we will certainly return!
A gem of a place! Quaint converted barn in quiet N Truro with the ambience of an English cottage.
This place is a gem! Small quaint converted barn in quiet North Truro with the feel of an English cottage, plus lovely helpful hosts who keep the place immaculate. Even a funky little chicken coop in the back yard. Less than 15 minutes from Provincetown too. We'll come back.
A lovely little house
Thank you for the 4 days we spent in your cottage, so well equipped for our stay, complete with muffins and milk. We appreciated all the art work on the walls and our short talks with you and your proximity to the National Seashore. We spent a lot of time at the Audubon Society’s Wellfleet campus, coastal walking and watching birds. We hope to return soon. Thank you.
Meet your favorite Auntie you never knew
The cottage is amazing. It's brilliantly convenient and we'll stocked. Bring food, but otherwise, everything you need is already there.
Janice is absolutely wonderful. If you have a question, need, etc she is there to help. Thank you so much!!!
This visit meant so much in a deeply profound way... we may make this a special kind of memorial and return often.
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 the best whale watching trips on the east coast.
