Depending on the season and whether both houses are rented or just the main house the rate ranges from $975/week to $3700/week.

For full details, many more photos and availability calendar, please visit our site (see External Links, below).

Our vacation property is located on a secluded, two-acre lot overlooking Cape Cod National Seashore. The main house, which has been featured in a national magazine and two books, enjoys views of sunsets from its rooftop deck. We also have an informal guesthouse just down a short trail from the house that's available with the main house or separately. It has a nicely crafted hardwood interior and is perfect for a couple, a small family, or as a "space of our own" for older children.
Just bring yourself! We supply bed and bath linens, beach chairs, and more. In the main house the kitchen is nicely appointed and fully equipped; there is a full-size washer-dryer, screened porch, whirlpool bath, picnic table, gas and charcoal grills and an outdoor shower'''with a view. Enjoy quality audio/video system with DVD/CD, satellite TV and MAC computer in Main house. Wireless High Speed Internet. Free long distance phones.

Great choice for discerning, low-key Cape lovers

September 23, 2012

Well thought out, well furnished and decorated, excellent appliances, more electric outlets than any group could need for all their electronic devices, very clean. You will want to take good care of it and leave it as you found it. Our family has been renting on the outer Cape for decades and this house met the demanding standards of three generations!

Great house.......and superb outdoor shower!!!!!!

June 12, 2012

We stayed in the main house with our adult daughter, and it suited our needs perfectly. She was able to have her own bedroom downstairs with TV without disturbing us. The kitchen was very well stocked. The sound system was great, with speakers in every room. Completely enjoyed the openness of the main living area. The house had lots of games and puzzles. Small grocery store (Jams) very close by. The outside shower was phenomenal, and the view AMAZING!!!! We would highly recommend this house for the time of year we went.

The Laurel Main House, Two Week September Stay

October 4, 2011

Maddy and I took a two-week off season rental at the Laurel Main House from September 17 to October 1, 2011. The house is perfectly laid out for two couples. The downstairs bedroom has its own bathroom and offers great privacy. There is even a fold-up bed downstairs for an additional guest. Upstairs, the house has everything we were looking for to accommodate a two-week stay. The master bedroom is very comfortable, with plenty of storage in the walk-in closet. The kitchen/living/dining area has everything you might need for meal preparation and entertaining. Even the entertainment system is well thought-out. It offers Direct TV, CD/DVD player, and internet access through a MAC computer. There is wireless access if you bring your own laptop. The screened-in porch located off the living area was great for having some wine and cheese and great conversation. Additionally, we had access to the garage, which was great for storing suitcases, beach chairs, bicycles, etc. The house is in beautiful wooded surroundings, and the setting is quiet, restful, and stress-free. From Truro, the drive to Provincetown is less than ten miles and all that Wellfleet offers is that distance or less. We even went to the large Stop & Shop in Orleans to stock up on food at only 17 miles distance. You could say that the location in Truro is great for anywhere on the Outer Cape. Our bottom line is that we stayed in a great home and had a great time on the Cape in September. We highly recommend the Laurel for consideration as a temporary home on Cape Cod.

Great Get Away

August 2, 2011

We stayed at the Guest House in July of 2011 and had a wonderful time. I love how the home gives the rustic hide away vibe (so you truly feel like you are on vacation) with all the conveniences of today's technologies-flat screen TV, DVD player, Wi-Fi, AC, etc. I was also pleasantly surprised how stocked the kitchen was with all different pans, bowls, kitchen tools, etc. I had everything I needed. Also, outside there is a gas grill, outside shower, a table and chairs, beach chairs, hammock...There is nothing that the place lacks! The woodwork is truly remarkable and the place is beautiful. It is so quaint and comfortable, and the location was convenient to everything. We can’t wait to come back again!!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

I just wanted to send a note stating how pleased I was with my stay at The Laurel. It is absolutely beautiful and I will recommend it to anyone. I found the area lovely and the locals fun spirited and very friendly. Thank you for sharing your wonderful property!

The house and guest house were delightful and very practical and handy. Your instructions answered every question we had. We prepared mussels, flounder, and scallops at home, had lobster in Ptown and also managed to chow down at Black Fish (it was Ashley's night off). We also swam, sunbathed, and strolled at either Marconi Beach and Newcomb Hollow Beach pretty much every day. The beach blanket and chairs came in handy. One day Marconi Beach was the hangout for six giant seals. It was high tide and so they were very near the shore and staring at us. They seemed quite curious. We never got to their gathering place near Head of the Meadow Beach. We had great weather and a wonderful vacation. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us. We cleaned it like there was no tomorrow and left it in good shape for your upcoming visit.

Mary Rae Berman (Oct 2009)

"I was fortunate enough to stay at the Laurel during the winter 2006. It is a wonderful house with all the modern amenities (whirlpool tub, satellite television, rooms wired with stereo speakers, etc.). The house looks out on the marvelous Truro landscape and creature comforts that can be found in Wellfleet, Orleans, or Provincetown are never very far away. The owner was extremely easy to work with on securing the property, too. All in all, a wonderful experience had by all. I would highly recommend a break from the ordinary and stay at the Laurel."

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: If we rent only one house and the other is rented by another party, will we have privacy?
A: Our homes are over 150 feet apart and one is on a hill and the other in a valley. Additionally we designed the guest house with no windows on the side facing the main house. Most activity at the Main House is on the rear providing even more separation. Lastly, there are separate parking areas for each home. Because of thee steps we have never had a privacy issue.
Q: Do you supply beach chairs, towels, etc.?
A: We do. About a month before a guests arrival when all payments have been made we email a detailed list of what is supplied and suggestions of things guests might want to bring.
