Overview

Cape Cod Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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.

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...

Lazy Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was a great getaway. It was our first time to Cape Cod and first time using HomeAway. Everything went to plan. Janice and Robert were very kind. They had a great balance of being accommodating without being intrusive. We stayed 3 nights and felt right at home. The cottage had everything you could think of and the bed was really comfortable! You could walk to the beach- we're not swimmers so that didn't matter to us that much, but I assume in the summer time that would be very handy- and it's a stone's throw to Provincetown which was still up and running this time of the year. I would recommend staying here.

Perfect cottage for two

  • 5 of 5

We were so delighted with everything about rob and Janice's rental cottage. The authentic English garden, the hens, the old farmhouse, the location and our delightful hosts. We came for a retreat and that is exactly what we found bringing art supplies, guitars and mandolins. The plethora of bird song woke us up daily, but the bed was so comfortable, we went right back to sleep. Kudos to Rob and Janice for creating the perfect retreat.

As many have noted, the location is ideal - handy to beaches, dunes, Provincetown, and Wellfleet. But if we had done nothing but relax and enjoy the airy comfort of the cottage, our week would have been perfect. Janice and Rob have gone above and beyond in furnishing and equipping the cottage: the towels - thick and plentiful; the bath and other products, natural and organic; extra fans when it was warm, quilts when it was cool. Don't fail to use the exhilarating outdoor shower! This is a real find.

What a little gem!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is ideal, great hosts friendly and with loads of local knowledge. The cottage has everything that you would wish for, cozy and quiet. We slept like babies, relaxed and chilled completely. Location is perfect, close to quiet beaches but far enough away from the bustle of P'Town should you desire. Thank you for a great holiday 😀

Loved the cottage. Property was clean and organized. There were many nice touches within the cottage. We loved the library! Owners were friendly and accommodating. North Truro is a great location for biking, walking, and relaxing. Perfect for two!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we have stayed here during April vacation. It's the perfect place to just read, write, draw... it feels like a retreat. On cold days this little cottage felt very cozy, and on the warm sunny days the opened french doors made us feel like it was summer! Feels like a home away from home!
