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.

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.

Memorable Cape Thanksgiving Escape

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful, unique, comfortable, clean, casual and simply perfect for our Thanksgiving on Cape Cod. A lovely find in North Truro - rain or shine - and we had both. Janice and Rob warmly welcomed us like returning family. We brought all our fixings to cook a wonderful Thanksgiving feast. The little kitchen had the right equipment needed to create a magical meal. We walked to the beach and saw seals floating along the shore. Also found some favorite sea glass and heart shaped rocks. Another walk led us to the local little market with everything from super sandwiches, artisan olive oil, cheeses and fruits to wines and craft beers. Friendly service and oh so handy! Inside the "cottage" we enjoyed hot showers, thick towels, natural cleaning products, comfy bed with extra pillows and ample storage up in the spacious second floor bedroom. Tasteful, lovely art decorate the walls throughout and shelves of books invite you to explore. Wifi was strong so we were able to easily work remotely. Do bring your own DVDs for movies or you'll be watching Netflicks on your laptop - which is fine, by the way! Also a radio, if you prefer not to use your phone. We may return in another season when gardens are bursting with blooms and fresh veggies await picking. It will be quite something as their gardens are prolific! There's nothing hurried about North Truro in the off season. And we absolutely love it. Thank you again Janice and Rob for kindly sharing your special property. A wonderful memory...

Cozy, comfortable and quiet winter retreat!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay! Full of light, cozy and comfortable in the cold weather and one can just walk out the door and explore the beach, find the most delicious chocolate and breakfast sandwiches. Not to mention the Truro Library! Short drives to fantastic walking, birding, boating and - in the summer - beaching/swimming.

Everything was in order, comfortable and easy. Thank you Robert and Janice. I hope to return...

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.
