A total gem!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic vacation at Ryder Beach Farm - proximity to the beach and nature trails, the resident animals, the hospitality - all was exactly as described yet even better than expected. Where else can you wake up to greetings from a donkey, goats, horses, chickens, dogs and cats; hard to say if we or our dog Lucy loved the farm more!

Even better than described

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about how much my daughter and I loved our stay at Ryder Beach Farm. It's almost too much beauty to take in... 360-degree stunning views, an almost-private beach just a walk through the sand dunes away... friendly, adorable farm animals... gorgeous gardens... and utterly peaceful. The cottage is tastefully decorated with a really incredible bathroom. The owner is just wonderful. Thank you for everything! My daughter is still talking about her favorite animals!

Great location, comfortable, excellent stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our small dog, and I stayed for the week. The description on this page is right on. Harriet's farm is really peaceful. We felt right at home in a very welcoming environment. Harriet was very personable (as were her visitors) and was able to provide us with lots of good recommendations for restaurants, beaches, and shortcuts. Accommodations were clean and comfortable. Ryder Beach is a quick walk down the road. It was nice to walk down there and be able to head back to the studio to make lunch, grab some drinks and go back to the beach. Truro is such a perfect spot with Wellfleet on one side and Provincetown on the other. Great access to the National Seashore beaches. Plenty of walking, biking, swimming or just sitting at the farm relaxing, reading a book, and observing nature.

Fantastic, unique place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Ryder Beach Farm July of 2014. Really enjoyed the view from the top of the hill, and morning coffee with the dogs. The horses, goats, and chickens made for a truly memorable, relaxing place to stay if you love animals. The house itself is historic, and a pleasure to stay in. Newly renovated bathroom was a nice touch. Great location between Wellfleet and Provincetown, with a relaxing bay-side beach a few minute walk from the house. Harriet is a great host. Hope to visit again soon.

Breathtakingly beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the most positive experiences I've ever had staying in Truro. The cottage and surrounding landscape are just beautiful. The dirt road you see in the photos leads right over a sand dune, and to the beach. It is also an animal-lover's dream, with horses, goats, friendly dogs, cats, chickens.... and the property still smells sweet! The cottage interior is tastefully decorated; the bathroom is high-end. Just gorgeous, with flower gardens all over. The owner is so nice. I plan to return as often as I can! Thank you!
