Restful, comfortable and a spectacular garden

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacations in Truro every year and this was our first year at 13 Pond Road. Just to be in an 18th century cottage is a treat, and our family of four loved it. The house was clean and well-supplied with linens, etc. and we loved visiting the garden, goldfish pond and sculptures. Roger and Marilyn were gracious and helpful hosts (flowers were waiting) and our kids looked forward to helping feed the goldfish. The wide hardwood floors were part of the rehab done, along with the addition of beams salvaged from fishing boats. I grew up spending summers in Chatham and to share the historic part of Cape Cod, along with a wonderful Bay beach, with my kids was a joy. We could walk or bike to the beach and the Salty Market and the Cape air was refreshing. Thank you Roger and Marilyn for creating a restful haven for us and we look forward to returning next year.

North Truro Retreat Antique Cape with Inviting Back Yard

The house was lovely, the gardens were exquisite, the goldfish pond was tranquil and our hosts could not have been nicer. We had a fabulous time with great access to the beach, bike trails and P Town.

I would highly recommend booking this rental for your vacation.

Wonderful Week

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a wonderful week on the Cape. The house is small, but fit our needs very well especially with the good sized kitchen since we cooked in a lot. The backyard is beautifully landscaped and offered a nice quiet place to sit after the beach. The location is tremendous with easy access to beaches, Provincetown and Route 6. The owners were helpful when needed. Thanks Roger and Marilyn!

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This house is our home away from home when we visit the Cape! This is the 4th year we have stayed at Roger and Marilyn's cottage and everything about it makes our vacation special! The house is always clean and ready for our arrival, and my daughter cannot wait to get out in the backyard to use the swing and to enjoy the fish pond that Roger has created! The location is perfect with the beach a short walk away, a pond to fish at or enjoy the wildlife even closer and a quick drive over to Highland Light house! Roger and Marilyn are always very attentive and no request is left unfilled. The house itself is comfortable, clean and in excellent condition. One of my worries with rentals is the wear and tear on the place due to the large number of people in there throughout the seasons, but at 13 Pond Road, everything is in perfect order! It feels like my own home and I look forward to many more great summers at Cape Cod! Thanks Roger and Marilyn!

Perfect Cape Cod Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is the third summer we have rented Roger and Marilyn’s home for a week and we love it. The home is located within walking distance to a pond, the bay beach, a small market and cafe, the library and a park. It is a short drive (or flat bike ride) to the National Seashore and ocean beaches. The backyard is fantastic with a beautiful fish pond, a swing and short wooded path perfect for kids to explore. This beautifully restored home is well equipped with cable tv, WiFi, comfortable furniture, linens, washer/dryer and dishwasher. The master bedroom (with attached bath) is a great size and the two smaller bedrooms are perfect for kids. Marilyn and Roger are incredibly gracious and very responsive to any requests we’ve had – last year we discovered the grill wasn’t working and Roger replaced it the same day. If you’re looking for a comfortable, relaxed, family friendly and truly charming Cape Cod home in a perfect location, this is your place.

Owner's Response: We look forward to seeing Cate and Jeff, with their daughter, and now their baby son, who we have not met yet, the Fourth of July week. They are our regulars! They start off the summer for us on the right note!

A very clean, cozy cottage on Cape Cod

  • 5 of 5

We have been visiting this part of Cape Cod for over 30 years. We usually stay with family but due to wedding guests we had to find someplace else to stay. We researched several properties in the area on VRBO and we settled on this one. When we got there we knew that we had made the right decision! Roger and Marilyn were very gracious hosts and toured us through the house and property, making us feel very much at home. A lot of work and care has been put into the property and it's renovation. As an historic property it is full of vintage Cape Cod charm and we would not hesitate to stay there again if the need should arise. It's walking distance to the bay and Coast Guard Beach is a short bike or car ride away.
