About dilys staaterman

This property , located on 10 acres, has been in our family since 1940. I have spent every summer of my life here, and since retiring 9 years ago my husband and I have devoted our time and energy into developing an organic vegetable farm and now sell to many restaurants, stores, and at our farmstand.

dilys staaterman purchased this cottage in 1940

Why dilys staaterman chose Truro

We offer serenity and privacy as well as proximity to a beautiful beaches and many bike and walking trails. We also are only 9 miles from Provincetown where there are many fine restaurants, activities, art galleries and theater.

What makes this cottage unique

I have been taking care of and renting the main house on the property since I was 18. The cottage was totally renovated in 2007 with all the modern amenities. So while we are relatively close, living in the main house, we also understand completely the need for privacy for our renters. We are also a source of information for travelers. We welcome all!

Cozy cottage near Longnook Beach

  • 5 of 5

We love staying at this cottage!!! We've been coming for three years now and always look forward to it. Peter and Dilys are lovely!! They always make sure you have everything you need yet are never intrusive. The cottage has everything you need - grill, all the pots, pans and kitchen appliances/utensils you need, w/d, outdoor shower, games/puzzles for bad weather - and the house very clean and well kept. It's perfect for the 3 of us (me, my husband and our 10 y/o daughter). Longnook Beach is a 5 minutes drive at the end of the street or a nice walk/bike ride. Just be sure to get there early for parking.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

Dilys and Peter have wonderfully preserved (and upgraded) their generational property. Their Farm allowed us to embrace the quiet and serenity of the Old Cape. But it is also within easy access of many of the contemporary Cape establishments, beaches, bike trails, parks and golf course between P'Town and Orleans. The serene Cottage is so-well designed! On our first day, with windows and skylights open, it really felt that the outdoors was brought right into the living space. The king-size bed can be it's own retreat, and the shower is heavenly! The rear lawn can provide privacy for sunbathing, reading, and grilling. Our stay at the Cottage allowed for perfectly lazy days. The Cottage can easily be part of your vacation enjoyment!

Dilys and Peter, Your efforts and work with the entire property can readily be seen, and Jim and I would like to thank you once again for sharing this idyllic spot with all of us. Like many of your previous guests, we too hope to return for another visit.

We loved the beauty and quiet this house and land provided. Newly renovated and perfect, we enjoyed a comfortable, clean, and relaxing stay. Dilys and Peter were very hospitable and kind- wonderful hosts. We would totally stay there again (and move in!) if we travel out here again from the west coast.

The essence of Cape Cod captured here.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Longnook Farm Cottage for 2 weeks and loved every moment. The details put into the cottage capture the essence of the Cape and encouraged the rest and relaxation we came to find. The natural light and sweet breezes flow through the house effortlessly keeping us comfortable all day long. Morning coffee on the front porch offered entertainment as the turkeys came through the yard. Afternoon reading in the back gave us the opportunity to see hummingbirds flying back and forth to the beautiful flowers around the property. Morning walks to the farm stand was an extra treat. Peter and Dilys were wonderful hosts and we look forward to many more stays at Longnook Farm.

Beautiful & Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Longnook Meadows Farm and once again everything was perfect. Great blend of modern conveniences and traditional Cape Cod farm setting. Very peaceful location but conveniently located. Enjoy the short hike or bike ride of about a mile to Longnook Beach down a scenic road. Peter & Dilys are wonderful, thoughtful hosts. Looking forward to many more vacations at Longnook Meadows Farm.
