Nestled in the Truro dunes on an historic three-and-a-half acre estate, this lovely two-bedroom rental cottage is just a 2-minute walk to Cape Codís coveted Ballston Beach. Ideal for all members of a diverse party, this seemingly infinite reach of sandy shore is the perfect spot for an invigorating swim, a ride on the surf, casting for striped bass and bluefish, delving into a good book, or simply relaxing in the sun.
A stoneís throw from the Cottage, a private path leads to the top of our magnificent dune, where a sweeping view of the Atlantic Ocean and the surrounding landscape offers a vantage point for quiet contemplation or a practical assessment of the dayís beach conditions. The property lies within the Cape Cod National Seashore, where miles of walking trails and unspoiled natural beauty are readily accessible.
Open layout includes screened and glassed dining porch overlooking private garden; living room with cathedral ceiling; master bedroom with queen-size bed and sliding glass door to garden; and a large upstairs bedroom with three twin beds and plenty of floor space — complete with a shipís porthole looking down into the living room.
The cottage provides total comfort and privacy in an ideal location. Swim, fish, sea-kayak, hike, picnic, bike, watch the birds and gaze at the stars — all without ever getting in the car. This is one of the most magical spots in Truro. Sleeps two to six comfortably, roomy enough for additional floor sleepers. Crib available on request. Please note: No Pets & No Smoking.
Highland Light, Cape Codís first lighthouse, was moved back from the precariously eroding cliffs during the summer of 1996. It now sits 120 feet above the ocean, with its beam visible 30 miles at sea.
Quiet and unpretentious, Truro is a mecca for writers and artists. For 26 years, the Castle Hill Center for the Arts has been offering classes to both adults and children and sponsors lecture series, concerts, and artist receptions.
