The cottage is located on Truro Center Road near the top of the hill. It is available throughout the Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer for months, or for weeks, or for a stay of at least three days except during peak season -- June 18 - September 10, when the minimum rental is one week. At this time the cottage is still available beginning the weeks of June 29, August 12, August 25 and lots of openings in September and October when it is especially lovely and serene here. Please see the calendar.
Our guests have called this a 'fairytale' cottage, but we call it the Humming Bird Cottage. The hummingbirds are back and ravenous after their long journey. Most people wait until July and August to come to the Cape, but it has beauty at any time of year if you are curious about nature. It is especially beautiful this Spring, and we invite you to come.
In the Cottage we have installed a beautiful new Mitsubishi heater/air conditioner that keeps the whole cottage toasty warm or soothingly cool. We also have a new 40" Sony TV and WIFI connection.
It is a great time of year for whale watching on the Dolphin Fleet where the naturalists are wonderfully knowledgable. Or simply walking the never-ending beaches like a poet, and of course, swimming in the Atlantic or Cape Cod Bay or the local ponds. There is plenty to do and see if you like art, theater, music, eating good food, shopping for unique gifts, or just want space to reflect on the beauty of a sunset .
We have wrap -around oceans, so you will rarely stray far from the Atlantic Ocean, Cape Cod Bay or the Pamet River estuary. Truro has some of the highest dunes -- Longnook -- and most beautiful beaches on the Cape: Ballston Beach, Longnook, Head of the Meadow, Coast Guard Beach, Corn Hill. All the beaches are about five to ten minutes away. For sunsets Pamet Harbor, and Great Hollow Beach. and in nearby Provincetown, the panoramic sunsets of Race Point. I watch for whales breaching or spouting at Herring Cove. but I can also see them sometimes on walks along the trails at the tops of the dunes in Truro.
The cottage is sitting just below a pretty barn, very private, and nestled in a leafy dell with verdant trees enfolding it. You can eat your meals on the deck in the Summer. There are lots of flowers, and often, young rabbits hopping around if our friendly fox has not made an appearance. Flocks of wild turkeys may also make a stately parade across the land from time to time, especially in the Fall.
The cottage has a new washer and dryer, and a gas grill on the patio. The living room has a Chickering piano, original art on the walls, and a dining area overlooking the landscape. There is a summer blue bedroom with a queen-size bed, big closet, and a kitchen with a pantry. For summertime there are whisper -quiet ceiling fans in each room, and a new addition is a beautifully silent Mitsubishi air conditioner/heater/dehumidifier which has made the cottage a delight to be in. The cottage is very well insulated and heated, so it is toasty warm in Winter.
Wellfleet and Provincetown are a ten minute drive for memorable dining, shopping, and live theater. The Julie Harris Stage in Wellfleet, has plays, music and "Live from the Met'"operas in the Fall, Winter, Spring and even Summer. The Payomet has world famous musicians. The Provincetown Theater, and art galleries and museums , all are less than 15 minutes away by car or the nearby Flex bus. In the summertime, golfing at the Highland Links overlooking the Atlantic is like golfing in paradise. Nearby, are the famed Cape Cod Lighthouse and many treasures in the Truro Historical Museum.
The School for Arts at Castle Hill is right around the corner if you would like to take a class for part of the day while you are here. So you can choose to rest and relax , and at the same time, enrich your soul.
There is a good choice of restaurants in Truro, Wellfleet and Provincetown, and some overlook the water. Enjoy!
