At the top of Shore Road in Truro, Stones Throw Condominium units are privately owned. We stayed in #1 freestanding cottage. It was very clean and decorated with all kinds of Cape Cod motif. The pros were the location, the peaceful environment, the cleanliness, the outdoor patio with grill. There was a Keurig coffee maker and the owners provided the water and lots of other kitchen items to make it very pleasurable.The cons was the pool area; it was a big let down. The pool, itself, was so dirty, we could not even use the pool. I tried skimming it to just get in, but really needed a complete cleaning and a million ants in and around the pool, and the bed in the cottage was just horrible. The bed seemed to be more a double bed than a queen, but the mattress was awful. It was uneven and definitely needed to be upgraded. We still had a wonderful time, a peaceful time. We found Head of the Meadow beach and went there every day. It was free until June17th, otherwise $20 a day to park. Saw lots of seals from the beach and guys catching striped bass from shore. Mac's restaurant in P-Town had the freshest fish for lunch and dinner.
Our 2 week July stay was just dreamy. The cottage is pristine and the decor is beautifully tied together. Our favorite spot, especially our boys, was the little outside oasis that is completely private. We grilled fresh fish and burgers almost every night. We enjoyed most of our meals, including breakfast, outside surrounded by tall grasses and sweet flowers. The Keurig coffee maker with tons of specialty coffee offerings made each morning so relaxing. The air conditioning was an added bonus. It allowed for a cool place to relax and also kept all of our clothes and towels dry! The washer and dryer were life savers!
My husband and I both felt very lucky because the cottage is perfectly placed! It allowed us to get on the main roads in a flash and still enjoy a quiet space. My husband and the boys would bike into ptown and I would meet them with the car. We'd walk around town and grab a snack and put the bikes up on the car. Then we'd head over to the beach to off road and surf or SUP. We were able to store our SUP board and bicycles next to the eating area behind the house with no concern. That was great for the nights we went to the drive-in!
The corner store is just awesome! The sesame peanut noodles and wine selection were my husband's favorite! The stone fired pizza joint on 611 was just fantastic!
The house inside and out are so thoughtfully put together that it makes a great vacation before you even start! If you can think of it, they have it! The owners are so lovely and attentive we really can't say enough about them! We look forward to returning!
We know you'll have a great vacation! Just don't take our weeks! Enjoy, Suzi & Joe
What perfection in an ideal location! The cottage is new with all the comforts of home and more. Beautifully decorated and supplied with all you need for a Cape vacation. The private side garden is a pleasure throughout the day. The hosts were helpful and available when needed. I'm coming back!
Don't let the size of the condo fool you. It is a delight to stay here. Kitchen,bath, laundry all well stocked, no need to bring anything. Need a corkscrew?,there are probably 4 or 5 in the kitchen .Full size frig.,very comfortable bed, great patio area, lots of flowers and delightful birds singing all day long. Pay attention to the potted plants, if it is hot , they will need water. Owner gets back to you within a day or less, we only needed to ask for the key location, and arrival time.

Wonderful cottage, beautifully furnished ,very clean and very well equipped. We had a very relaxing and peaceful stay. Owner responded to our queries immediately. We enjoyed it very much!
This cottage is quite a find. From the first friendly contact with the owner until we left 3 days later we enjoyed Cottage #1. It is clean and beautifully decorated and well taken care of. It also has a well-equipped kitchen which makes the time spent hanging out easy to enjoy. We were able to keep our bicycles secure in the large cellar. The patio is tucked in nicely for private relaxation time. The bedroom is quiet and comfortable.I certainly look forward to spending time there again.
