About the property

5 bedroom 2 1/2 bath historic cottage on the Pamet River and Cape Cod Bay

Castleway cottage is a charming historic 1100 square foot three season cottage, just steps away from the Pamet River which opens up into Cape Cod Bay, one mile south of Corn Hill Beach. Built in the 1890's as an artist's colony, Castleway is one of 8 Sladeville cottages (built by Mr. Slade), which are steps from a private riverfront on the Pamet River, complete with kayaks and canoes available for guests at no additional charge. Or bring your own. Pet friendly. Cottage is simple and charming, with a recently remodeled kitchen, first floor full bath with tub and shower, new outdoor shower, three small bedrooms on the first floor and two on the second, along with a half bath. Sleeps 9. Newly sanded floors in kitchen & two first floor bedrooms. Living room has been painted and has a working fireplace ! Dining room table can seat 8-10, or it can be closed up and used for smaller groups. There is also a small TV in the living room and a second one in the upstairs master bedroom. Internet is provided and signal is good, as is a land line for local calls (cell phone service can be spotty). Old fashioned but clean and very functional. Bedrooms are small but have water views and plenty of windows for nice light and ventilation, and beds and linens are new or in good condition. Dressers and closets in all bedrooms (first floor queen bedroom has hooks for hangers but not closet).

Kitchen includes new counters, cabinets and fixtures, newly-sanded floor, and all customary kitchen equipment including microwave, new washer & dryer, pots and pans, dishes and plenty of utensils. Bring your own bed linens and towels, we provide all pillows, blankets and quilts. (Linens and towels can be provided for an additional fee if notified in advance). Outdoor shower is heavenly !!

Property also includes 7 outdoor adirondack chairs, a gas grill & charcoal grill, a wooden picnic table, two outdoor umbrellas and a hammock. 6 beach chairs plus two boogie boards and foam noodles available for your use. Parking spaces for two cars, and additional guests spots may be available if needed. Swing set for children and large grassy area in front of the cottages for outdoor play. Leashed dogs permitted for an additional $150 fee per dog. On-site manager. Professionally cleaned before and after each guest. Saturday-Saturday arrival and departure during peak summer weeks. Two portable electric heaters available in the cottage during colder evenings in spring and fall. Built-in electric heaters installed in master bedroom and living room.

Note - Although it may not appear so on the google map, the Pamet River flows right out to Cape Cod Bay, so you can take a kayak or canoe from our cottage, and paddle out to the bay beaches within a few short minutes, as well as stop along the way in Truro harbor, where you can moor or anchor larger boats !

Fantastic family destination. Also great for one couple or family, or as many as three couples, and extended families. Many repeat guests over many decades.

For a change of pace, please check out our one bedroom waterfront cottage in North Truro (#3506195), our 3 bedroom walk-to-water all season cape (#976979) and our charming 4 bedroom house in Woodstock, Vermont (#3809315), which is great in both winter (for skiing as it's near Killington, Pico & Okemo mountains) and summer/fall !

perfect cape cottage

  • 5 of 5

Castleway is the quintessential cape cottage. Great location, just enough off the beaten path to feel like you've found a hidden gem, and a quick easy drive or bike ride to P'town. Beautiful kayaking and launch from the "front yard" and access to the national seashore dunes and beaches less than 2 miles from home. Cozy yet spacious enough to accommodate a family and equipped with everything you need. Thank you for 3 spectacular September days. We will be back!

Terrific house, but note its rear faces a road. Not a problem but be aware of it with kids and pets

Charming and peaceful spot

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at Castleway/Sladeville for about 5 years now, and can't say enough good things about it. We stayed here with our 3 children and another family with 2 children. Castleway was a great fit because it is roomy, comfortable and charming. The outdoor space - including the swings, the big open space, and all the crabs and creatures down at the Pamet River at low tide - was perfect for kids. The updates the new owners have made are wonderful because they add convenience without taking away the traditional beach cottage feel. The washer/dryer and outdoor shower were particularly helpful additions after a long day at the beach. The owners are incredibly helpful and eager to make sure renters have a great stay, and the cottage is close to Corn Hill and other great spots.

Wonderful water location

  • 4 of 5

This is a spectacular location on the Pamet plus the house can fit a large family. Although this is an old cottage (no designer look) it has charm and most modern conveniences and a warm airy clean feel. It is not moldy which is a huge deal as one who has decades of rental experience on the outer Cape can attest. The owners make every effort to provide what you need and you feel well taken care of. The kayaking on the Pamet is just wonderful and there is a long beautiful trail to walk all the way to the harbor. I highly recommend this house if you love being right on the water.
