House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
To reach the pagoda treehouse you drive up the road and into a private drive chiseled through pines that leads to an architectural three-level house surrounded with sliding glass doors. Enclosed cedar decks allow for private sunbathing and entertaining. Large master suite has sunken jacuzzi and restful treetop views. Cozy/romantic all seasons with wood-stove in master bedroom and waking up looking out any time of year it is like a dream, the scrub pines, the oak, the birds fluttering by, this is why you are here for this bliss, the serenity of the treehouse in the woods.
There is a large brick fireplace in dining area ....which in the colder moments turns even a cheeseburger into a romantic affair.
The house is located on just under an acre of lush scrub pine woods. When you're inside the house and look out you feel as if you're sitting inside this incredible natural world surrounded by myriad shades of green. Hours can be spent on the dining deck suspended in the lush Truro nature.
You can't see the beach or the sunset but you don't have the sounds of endless people walking up and down your path.
Instead you feel as if you've landed in your own private retreat ...a place designed for meditation, contemplation and delicious inspired forms of creativity that the treehouse delivers.
The sprawling bay beach is just under a half mile from the house but it's an easy walk which usually takes about ten minutes. There is a bike rack so if you prefer biking you'll get there in about five minutes. (Car two minutes)
One of the best features of the house allows you to never step foot in your car if you choose not to as the house is walking distance to a farm, fish market, and liquor store, and in the other direction a cafe with great capuccino and pizza. Next to the fish market, there's a shop which will provide healthy wrap sandwiches for your beach picnic.
The architect Charlie Zehnder who designed the house, while inspired by asian temples and pagodas, gave great thought to the concept of privacy for vacationers. For this reason, the bedrooms on the first floor (each with a double bed) are separated from the master bedroom suite (with a queen sized bed) by an open living/dining/kitchen area on the second floor.
All of the surrounding decks are enclosed no need to worry about taking your suit off.
The bathrooms and kitchens all have hand made tiles from Mexico and France, the living area and kitchen sports bookcases for tenants to enjoy...its a pretty varied collection: poetry, fiction, history, travel, cookbooks, and mysteries from tenants past stays.
Longnook ocean beach, which many believe to be the most beautiful beach in the world is a scenic five minute drive from the house. For a long stroll you cannot beat this beach, and I've walked beaches around the world, it's hard to beat Longnook beach for it's sheer expanse, surrounded by dunes, with only the gulls as company, thanks to the National Seashore which has kept this beach pristine.
A short drive from the house three hidden ponds with surprisingly warm water as early as May.
Sunrise views from the living room, decks, and master suite make waking up a delight. You almost do feel the infinite horizon of possibility.
The bathroom in the master bedroom was the dream bathroom of the architect Charlie Zehnder who believed bathrooms should be sumptuous: so you can lie back in the jacuzzi oversized tub and the vista in one direction is the treetops with birds fluttering by and in the other tub direction you face yourself before the mirrored wall.
He had celadon green tiles surround the tub so it might feel natural and insisted only real wood beam moldings even around the light.

About Carole Wolf
I went for a walk on the beach in Truro and fell in love with Truro and after traveling all over the world, I'm positive this is the most beautiful spot, and year after year, there's something new to explore in this vast natural world.
Carole Wolf purchased this House in 1990
Why Carole Wolf chose North Truro
I bought a house in Truro because I think it has the best beaches in the world, and I wanted privacy-thus I chose an acre in the woods. But really it was because a friend said everyone should have s spot in the world that speaks to them.

Tree top rental like coming home!
This is our 7th year at this rental property. The proprietor is so lovely to work with. The place is deliciously secluded. It is very spacious with delightful living/kitchen space on the second floor, a huge master bedroom/bath on the top floor and two bedrooms, another bathroom and laundry facilities on the bottom floor. There are decks all around the upper floors. It is extremely comfortable and we have enjoyed our time here when it was just the two of us with our dog or when we invited 4 friends to come. It is very close to seafood store, liquor store and the fabulous Savory for sweets, coffee and other fun food. Best of all is the proximity to the best beaches on the Cape and Provincetown and the amazing P'town Dunes. We feel so lucky that we found this place years ago. Our trip to the Cape and this hidden retreat is always the high point of our year.
Up in the trees!
We loved our stay in the treehouse! It was great entertaining friends on the second floor deck, and they loved it too. A complete kitchen meant we could cook anything, and I even used some of the owner's cookbooks. There were so many good books around that wanted to stay forever in the zero gravity chairs on the porch and read! Paul and I loved taking a hot jacuzzi bath every night in the big tub. We miss the treehouse and being able to walk to the beach.
Great location on the cape!
We had a wonderful week in North Truro and were so thrilled to be able to have our dog with us. She also had a great vacation! A short walk to the beach and just 10 minutes drive to PTown. The house had all the amenities we needed. The downstairs got uncomfortably damp, but it wasn't until we were cleaning up to go home that we realized there were dehumidifiers in each closet! So FYI to future renters!
Wonderful vacation home
My family and I just returned from a week in this private, spacious and peaceful Truro home. We loved waking up with the birds and felt like we were staying in a bright and beautiful treehouse. The design of the house also gives everyone their space. We enjoyed eating out on the deck and everyone loved the convenience of a cafe with excellent coffee, pizza and ice cream within walking distance. The bay is a short walk from the house, as well as a gorgeous ocean beach. This vacation home is by far our favorite place that we have stayed with our family. Our children have asked us when we can return.
Clean and private. Close to all.
I have been coming to Truro for 20 years and this is by far the best house we have stayed in. The different levels gave everyone their own space and the open floor plan made things easy. Very clean, private and close to everything. Nice walk to and from the beach.
Place could be updated stove rust edge of door
The house is nestled in just under an acre of pine woods. Decks are enclosed for privacy. A great place to relax and watch birds, but if you want to take a stroll here's what you can easily walk to: the bay in one direction (10 minutes) in the other direction, a farm, fish market, or cafe with great capucino and pizza, a bistro restaurant with luscious takeout.

A short drive from the house, wonderful hidden ponds with deliciously warm water. 10 % REDUCTION FIRST WEEK IN JULY SEE CALENDAR Superb sunrise views from the living room, decks, and master bedroom.
