About the property

The Beach Cottage at Lis Sur Mer sits atop a dune with a private deck.

The BEACH COTTAGE is located directly at the top of a dune and has a set of private stairs to the bay beach where you can experience almost total privacy. The BEACH COTTAGE has a small entry way with a sitting area for dining at an antique table that can seat 6. There is an open plan kitchen area with refrigerator, electric stove, microwave, coffee maker and all your kitchen needs. Living room area opens to the kitchen with an old comfortable couch and an equally comfortable chair that face a wall of windows on the bay. There is wi-fi, a 36' TV and DVD player as well as a Vermont Casting old fashion gas stove with glass windows for off season warmth and ambience.

For sleeping, there is a very private room that holds a custom made king size bed facing windows on the garden and the bay. This room has a fireplace, a dresser and a closet to hang clothes. A smaller room located at the opposite end of the cottage has an antique double pineapple bed with a bay view. There is a small bathroom with a clawfoot tub and shower. The front of the beach cottage has a private deck on the bay with reclining deck chairs.

Behind the cottage there is a very private back garden surrounded by trees and dunes with seating arrangements, a charcoal grill and a picnic table for outside dining. Additional features are a completely private outside shower that faces the bay and a stereo system that plays both in the living room and on the rear patio.

The house covered in ivy and rose vines is surrounded by olive trees, pine trees, and two century old english oaks. Lighting on the property is by antique brass lanterns.

About Lis Sur Mer

Your host is an entrepreneur in the arts who has spent the last 40 years traveling internationally for business. While his stateside base is most often New York City, he has taken every opportunity in his travels to seek refuge in quaint European villages. His appreciation of these historic havens was a great part of the inspiration for Lis Sur Mer.

Why Lis Sur Mer chose North Truro

Lis Sur Mer was originally an exclusive family compound and retreat until 15 years ago when he began opening it up to visitors. With Lis Sur Mer he has created a storybook compound renowned for its privacy, romance and renewal. Built from the fruits of the sea and recycled building of past centuries, inspired in part by the concept of the famous artist dune shacks of Provincetown, the aesthetic is a French fishing village mated with Old Cape Cod. Visiting Lis Sur Mer is an adventure in escaping modern frenzy and McMansions, getting back to the basic joy of natural beauty with extraordinary gardens, awe at every vista, and total cultural refuge. At the same time high speed internet and HD TV quietly co-exist. There is no place on Cape Cod like Lis Sur Mer. The word most often used to describe Lis Sur Mer is “magical” … Bring your inner artist.

The Cottage at Lis Sur Mer on top of the sand dune overlooking Cape Cod Bay is a suberb location.

  • 5 of 5

In prior years we have been beach side on either the Atlantic or the Nantucket Sound as I love to sleep hearing the surf so we went to the Bay beach side in 2018. To my pleasure the surf could be heard all day and the water was white capping on a number off days during our week of June stay. We loved the quaint Cottage and we usually do not repeat a location, but we plan to return to the Lis Sur Mer Cottage in 2019.

Great getaway, even in the teeth of a storm

  • 5 of 5

So.. We arrived at the Beach Cottage the day before a Nor'easter storm came barreling in. We were more than a bit nervous about being on a bluff above the ocean with hurricane-force winds, but the staff at Lis sur Mer set us at ease immediately. The caretaker checked in at the right moments and we had ready access to the housekeeper if needed. The gas fireplace was a lifesaver when the power went out - though do note that the water is well drawn (no water in power outages) and the cook stove is electric, which is an annoyance even when you do have power. Besides that, the cottage was very well appointed and super cozy even in pretty horrific weather. It really is a great getaway.

Like living in a fairy tail

Beautiful spot, amazing views, not a ton of green space to walk big dogs, but in the winter that was not a problem

Wonderful cottage by the sea

  • 5 of 5

The Beach Cottage was beautifully situated so we could see and hear the bay from most every room. It was wonderful to see the water upon waking in the morning and to hear the waves crashing at night.There is an amazing sense of light and tranquility about the house. It is charming and although small, has everything you need to be comfortable. We were relaxed and slept wonderfully. Certainly one of a kind. We can't wait to return!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Beach Cottage is the perfect choice for a rejuvenating retreat. The rustic, comfortable decor is soothing. The fireplace in the master bedroom was great.
