Upon our arrival, we were greeted and made to feel like one of the family and we did ! The cottage has everything you need to have an enjoyable vacation. The kitchen is fully equipped and even had a lobster pot, which we used a few times. Carriage House is just a short drive to the area Lobster company. Being within steps of the Sandy River Beach was amazing and the view is incredible. We received many great recommendations for local attractions in the area. There are hiking trails on the Great Wass Island that we enjoyed. Our educational tour of the DownEast Institute was amazing and I'm glad we didn't miss it. This is a vacation my family will never forget. Hopefully , we can plan a return trip soon because it was so hard to leave.
