Spectacular Bay Views from This Gracious Victorian Home

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

The majestic Grand View was built directly across from the beach on Cape Cod Bay during the late 1800's in the East End of Provincetown. Its wrap-around covered porch provides stunning unobstructed vistas of the Truro/Wellfleet shore, Provincetown Harbor and tip of the Cape including the picturesque Long Point Lighthouse and Pilgrim Monument.

The lovely interior has been restored with warm, hardwood floors and the high ceilings provide a bright, airy setting.The simple furnishings include many antiques which capture the feel of a bygone era. Its unique location provides privacy while within walking distance of town.

There is ample parking for several cars which is very rare in Provincetown plus a backyard which abuts a wooded conservation area. The large eat-in kitchen with pantry, dining room, large living room with many windows, 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, large front entry hall and separate laundry area make it a spacious, comfortable retreat for all. Children particularly love to explore the swimming beach out front with its abundant sea life. Enjoy an outdoor shower with bay views or enjoy cocktails and dinner on the porch while watching the sunset over the town!

About The Owner

My grandfather purchased this property in 1918. He was one of the founding artists of the Provincetown art colony. I grew up summering there and retired to my home next door to Grand View where I currently live with my wife Nanette and dog Josie. We have wonderful groups of regular renters who have returned every year since we opened the property to guests in 2003.

The Owner purchased this house in 1999

What makes this house unique

The Grand View home has everything .... a private setting in the East End of Provincetown that is close enough to walk (15 minutes) to the center of town, yet, far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet away from it all. Watch all the activities on the water from the wonderful wrap around porch while enjoying a cocktail or dining al fresco.. Enjoy the swimming beach directly across from the house and explore the sand bars at low tide.

Great Summer Vacation Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and friends ( and myself) stayed in this home last week during the week of the 4th! We absolutely loved our stay. The home is very well kept, very clean and is filled with rustic and nautical decor. Our favorite thing about the home is the large deck that looks out onto the water. There is a lot of seating on the deck for entertaining. The house has 4 bedrooms: two of the rooms have two beds and the other two rooms have large beds that a couple could fit perfectly in. It is perfectly located as it is relatively close to commercial street, but far enough to not hear all the noise and visitors. We loved taking a bike ride into town to enjoy the food and shops. We are booking or stay again for 2018 already!!

Best house I ever rented!

  • 5 of 5

This house and host (Nanette) are truly special. The house is in excellent shape, nicely furnished and decorated, and is really a part of Provincetown history. The porch deck is absolutely amazing and you will spend a lot of time there socializing and enjoying the views. The kitchen is very well equipped for a rental and we made several rather large dinners there during our stay. The house is close to town but is quiet. One can easily walk to the Art Galleries on the East End of Town.

Grandview Is Our Favorite Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

My close friends and I have been coming to Grandview every summer for several years now, and each time is just the perfect holiday. The house is quite large, yet comfortable and cozy, with a great kitchen perfect for preparing group dinners. And of course there's the wrap-around porch with the best views in town! You can see the whole bay of Provincetown as well as the village itself; sitting on that porch watching the tides change and the sun and the moon are among the highlights of our vacation. This house is not just a rental for us, it's like a second home, and Nanette and Roger, the landlords, are like family to us. It's just the perfect gem!

We love Grandview!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming back each summer to Grandview for over ten years. A sense of peace and joy always fills our souls as we arrive on the amazing front porch and overlook the beautiful bay views. We gather each year with our friends and the owners, Nanette and Roger, treat us like returning family. The house is beautiful as seen in the photos and the location is ideal as you feel you are on your own private part of the Cape while in easy biking and walking distance to downtown Provincetown. Summer would not be summer to us, our sons or our friends without sometime at Grandview. We highly recommend this location in Provincetown!

My family has vacationed here from Virginia And Massachusetts and love everything about this house. Everyone is comfortable no matter what part of the house you're in. The large porch has the most magnificent views of the bay and Provincetown. You can walk down steps to the beach or walk into town. Recommend this property for anyone looking for a fun relaxing vacation.
