Description from owner


Sitting just below a pretty barn, the cottage is nestled in a leafy dell with verdant trees enfolding it.The cottage is located on Truro Center Road near the top of the hill. It is not on Rte 6 as the google map may make it seem. We still have 6 nights available at the end of August.

Our guests have called this a 'fairytale' cottage, but we call it the Humming Bird Cottage. The Humming Birds start to arrive at the end of April. Most people wait until July and August to come to the Cape, but it is magical in the early Spring, filled with eager birdsong, the budding of green leaves, and the flowering of trees.

In the Cottage we have installed a beautiful new Mitsubishi heater/air conditioner that keeps the whole cottage toasty warm or soothingly cool. We also have a new 40" Sony TV and WIFI connection.

Tranquility is the rhythm of life. This is a great time of year for walking the never-ending beaches. There is plenty to do and see if you like nature, art, theater, music eating good food, or shopping for unique gifts.

We have wrap around oceans, so you will rarely stray far from the Atlantic Ocean, Cape Cod Bay or the Pamet River estuary. Truro has some of the highest dunes -- Longnook -- and most beautiful beaches on the Cape -- Ballston Beach, Longnook, Head of the Meadow, Corn Hill. All the beaches are about five to ten minutes away. For sunsets Pamet Harbor, and Great Hollow Beach. and in nearby Provincetown, the panoramic sunsets of Race Point. I watch for whales breaching or spouting at Herring Cove. but I can also see them sometimes on walks along the trails at the tops of the dunes in Truro.

If you like, you can eat your meals on the deck. There are lots of flowers, and often, young rabbits hopping around if our friendly fox has not made an appearance. Flocks of wild turkeys may also make a stately parade across the land from time to time.

The cottage has a new washer and dryer, and a gas grill on the patio. The living room has a Chickering piano, original art on the walls, and a dining area overlooking flowers in the garden. There is a summer blue bedroom with a queen-size bed, big closet, and a kitchen with a pantry. For summertime there are whisper quiet ceiling fans in each room, and a newest addition is a beautifully silent Mitsubishi air conditioner/heater/dehumidifier which has made the cottage much sweeter.

Wellfleet and Provincetown are a ten minute drive for memorable dining, shopping, and live theater. The Julie Harris Stage in Wellfleet, the Provincetown Theater, and art galleries and museums are less than 15 minutes away by car or the nearby Flex bus. Golfing at the Highland Links overlooking the Atlantic is like golfing in paradise. Nearby, are the famed Cape Cod Lighthouse and the treasures in the Truro Historical Museum.

The School for Arts at Castle Hill is right around the corner if you would like to take a class for part of the day while you are here. So you can choose to rest and relax on our pristine beaches, and at the same time, enrich your soul.

In season, there is a good choice of restaurants in Truro, Wellfleet and Provincetown, and some overlook the water. Enjoy!

The cottage is not safe for children under five years because of the drop from the deck/patio.
Regarding the washer/dryer: guests are asked to wash no more than two heavy towels at a time to ensure the washer spins all the water out. We would be most grateful if guests would use the clothes line for heavier items.
