We just finished our second two week stay at the Schiller's cottage. Last year, we rented it sight unseen after speaking with Linda Schiller on the phone. It sounded perfect for our family and it was! We made sure we booked it again for 2012 as we knew this would soon become a popular rental. Our second summer on the cove was just as wonderful as the first and we are already looking forward to next year.
The location is perfect. Gorgeous views of the cove abound from the porch, living and dining rooms, and 3 of the bedrooms. You can sit on the porch and watch the osprey dive for fish and if you're lucky, you'll catch a glimpse of the bald eagle soaring by.
The beach is great for swimming. You can jump and dive from the rocks or swim dock at high tide and just wade in and swim from boat to boat at low tide. The cove is also perfect for canoes or kayaks. Fishing for mackerel, exploring the coastline or Witch Island about a half mile from the cove are all fun things to do.
The cottage is a perfect place for our family. Our kids have absolutely loved staying here the past two summers and have met new friends each year. With four bedrooms, there is plenty of room to have other family members stay for a few nights. The kitchen is well equipped, enough so that we only ate out twice in two weeks.
The beauty of this location is that you can stay for days on end without getting in your car, or you can venture out and explore the local area that has so much to offer.
Lee and Linda are wonderful hosts. We feel so fortunate to have found this special place.
