About the Property
Our waterfront cottage and attached barn are perched atop the dramatic coastal bluff along Cape Cod Bay with stairs down to our private beach. We have two cottages and a barn on this acre of waterfront land, plus our own staircase down to the private sandy beach.
This rental consists of a two-story fisherman's cottage PLUS an attached tall barn, which contains another two bedrooms plus another bath.
I designed and built the fisherman's cottage almost 30 years ago, using antique doors, fixtures and timbers wherever possible. It consists of 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, eat-in kitchen on first floor with glass doors out to a patio for outdoor dining. There is also a screened in porch on that level. The living room is on second floor with a fireplace and deck looking out over the water.
And there is more! There is a door on the second floor of the cottage that opens onto to the upper levels of the rehabilitated barn. The main room of the barn (my painting studio for years) has a vaulted ceiling and two ten-foot banks of tall windows to the west and east. In that large room is a queen sleeper sofa, a twin day bed plus a tiny kid's room within a room, with little bed and dresser. Above this room is a loft with a queen bed and a view that knock your socks off, day and night. From up there, the moon shine so brightly on the water that it will wake you up some nights!
Some of the bedrooms are what is called ''captured'' bedrooms, meaning that you walk through a bedroom to reach a bedroom. It's not for everybody, but, for families who just need the extra beds and space and don't care about a sibling walking through their room to get to the bathroom at night, it works!
To summarize sleeping accommodations: the house and attached barn together have a total of 3 bedrooms (one is up high in a loft with a glorious water view), plus one queen sleeper sofa in the smaller living room and a second queen sleeper sofa plus a twin day bed in the large living room.
The eat-in kitchen is on the first floor, with a wide glass slider that opens out onto a private patio for dining. Adjacent to the kitchen is a breezy screened in porch.
We love dogs and we are able to accommodate some smaller, mature, hypoallergenic dogs. We charge $250 per small canine guest per week. Please feel free to share details about your dog.
The beach here is spectacular, the water warms up in July and August, sandbars form at low tide -- it is an ocean paradise for young and old, two legged and four-legged.
Also on our bluff is a little antique cottage that shares the beach stairs with the large house. It's a small ''Sears kit house," put together like a puzzle in 1901 on that very site, and probably delivered by the train that rain through our yard out toward the road. Stepping inside the kit house is like stepping back in time. It is available to rent separately if you want to invite another family to join you but would enjoy having privacy from one another at times. For details, look at , property listing #267.
Atop dramatic coastal bluff on Cape Cod Bay. Walk for miles on sandy beach -- south west to Provincetown or Southeast to Pamet Harbor in Wellfleet. We own a wide swath of beach. Our beach neighborhood is nearly deserted even in July and August!
Attractions Within Walking Distance
Just pop down the beach stairs: it's Cape Cod Bay! The shuttle bus all over the outer Cape will pick you up -- and take your bike if you want -- and bring you to any attractions on the outer Cape and the National Seashore Park. It's a great way to come home from Provincetown in the evening. Biking, you can't go far without getting to another beach -- open Atlantic or sheltered Bay. Take you pick each day.
Favorite Places To Eat
Terra Luna! Ten minute bike ride away. Coast downhill after dinner and ride by the Bay to get back to the cottage
Ice cream truck all afternoon outside Salty Market and Chequesset Chocolate.
You will find the best art galleries in the East End of Provincetown, on Commercial and on Bradford.

Year Purchased: 1988
About the owner: Landscape painter, colorist, classically trained, oil on board or canvas.
Why this property? From the moment I approached the edge of the bluff, I was a goner! What more stunning view would I find anywhere on Earth? On top of that, the sun sets across the water from us, even though we are on the East Coast! Truly an extraordinary place on our planet. And what a challenge to capture on canvas!
I grew up in New England, in a small town along the Connecticut River. I had many siblings and only a few short trips to the Cape and none to the outermost Cape, which is to me the place to center -- inside that spiraling "arm," near its furtherest tip.
