Owner purchased this House in 2016
Why Owner chose Truro
We lived for two years in Provincetown as renters and loved the Outer Cape in all seasons. When we had the good fortune to be able to buy a home, we looked at dozens of properties. We wanted a place that would be our second home and that we could offer for rent to couples or families looking for something not so basic where your pets would be welcome.

A lovely getaway
We found the Crows' Nest in a last-minute search for a place to celebrate our first anniversary (we'd been unable to plan in advance because reasons). What a lucky find it was! The house is beautiful and homey, well-appointed with a well equipped kitchen, and very comfortable. It was bigger than we needed but still perfectly fine for two. We were looking at a forecast with a lot of rain in it and wanted a place we could enjoy if we were stuck indoors, and this place fit the bill perfectly (the gas fireplaces proved a nice bonus in that respect). The location is convenient to our favorite haunts but still secluded enough to feel away from it all. The owner provided clear and comprehensive instructions for everything and responded promptly when we had a couple of minor questions. We had a lovely and memorable weekend, and we hope we have the opportunity to stay again in the future. Our thanks to our hosts!
We love the Crows Nest
We just completed our second stay at this wonderful hideaway in Truro. Secluded and quiet, yet close enough to Rt 6 to able to get anywhere on the Outer Cape easily. The owners are so easy to work with and very accommodating to allow us to bring our dog. Pet owners (and others): you will not find anything better on the Cape.
Great Place Great Time
We spent a few days after Christmas with our 2 adult children and their partners. Was so nice to get away from it all to this peaceful oasis on the Cape. The owners and the house were both one of the best I've ever worked with - and I have rented several homes for vacation over the last 20 years.
The house - perfect for 6 people. The 3rd bedroom with the 2 twin beds is small but worked out fine - just needed for sleeping, right. Beds were comfy. The bedroom with the queen is huge with a beautiful bathroom en suite - a skylight in the bathroom and a double shower and huge. A huge walk-in closet. The bed is very comfortable. I brought my own pillows - but I always do - like extra. This bedroom has a gas fireplace - very nice. We used this as the master (my and my husband's room:)) The bedroom with the king is large as well, also has a walk in closet and huge dresser. Also has a large flatscreen TV. Also comfy bed.
The hallway bathroom was perfect for our uses as well - also had a full shower.
The living area was perfect for the 6 of us. Living room, dining space and kitchen all open. Comfortable seating and spacious. The kitchen was well stocked with cookware, diningware. I wished I had, however, bought a large stew pot..but we adapted well. Everything worked well - and there was a booklet left in the house with very details instructions - which was a huge help.
Since we were at the house in December we didn;t really use the deck - but it looked great. Spacious and comfortable. We did make great use of the hot tub - really nice to have.
The driveway is super steep but it wasn't an issue for us - we just moved cars when we needed to unload anything.
The owners are one of the best parts of this place. Incredibly easy to work with and responeded almost immediately to any questions we had. Jimmy and Barbara are so generous. They have available the following: sheets, blankets, pillows, beach and bath towels, hangers, desks and chairs (if you really want to work), SmartTV, CD player, some CDs (nice collection), some books, some games, they share a long list of local businesses you may need (restaurants, package stores, etc), and more. We felt like we were friends or family members staying in their house.
Also - we had a blast on the Cape in the winter - went for walks, bonfire on the beach, hung out at the beach during the day (the weather was mild for us), explored Provincetown, used the dog park, wonderful dinner out. Thank you!
Location was good but you need a car.
The property was very nice. The road in was difficult but no problem in our all wheel drive vehicle. My filters for this trip were , dog friendly and a fireplace as we were going to be there very “off season”. We chose this property because it met both of those requirements even though it was much larger than we needed. Unfortunately, the fireplace in the living room was not operable. We notified the owners right away but it was not repaired while we were there. There was a fireplace in the bedroom but who wants to stay in the bedroom the entire week? The other issue was the television. It May not be a biggie for some but there are no local channels. The bedroom is “streaming” only. We’re not as tech savvy as some and have no streaming ability so we couldn’t watch the news. This would be a great place for a large family in the season. Truro is awesome!
Thanks for your honest assessment Deanna. I regret that we couldn't get the fireplace repaired for you on time. Home ownership is like that of course. You can't control everything that happens. We hope you'll come back in the high season.
Comfortable quiet place
We enjoyed this place very much. Very comfortable and quiet. We were disappointed that the fireplace was not working as we were looking forward to this feature of the house. The hot tub was nice and the kitchen well equipped. Beds were comfortable too. The shower tile in the
Master could use a good cleaning. Overall a very nice place to stay. Would rent again for sure.
