The cottage on the crest is quaint and peaceful. We were greeted by the glow of a lamp in a seaward window, a sailors welcome home.
Our thoughtful host and hostess surprise us with a gift basket of fresh fruit with artisan bread , local eggs, butter and milk. What a wonderful way to start our relaxing journey.
The cottage is pristine . Luxurious linens and comfy beds. All the comforts of home plus games , books and television for entertainment though we chose to explore the island.
We discovered the private beach where the unspoken words are" leave only footprints". The walk through the fairy woodland is relaxing.
Islanders are friendly - there were stories of the history in the area, welcome waves as we strolled by and bowls of water left out for thirsty pets.
A short walk to McLoon's provided us with fresh crab and lobster. It is a gathering place for folks to enjoy dock side feasts. (And one evening a display of a double rainbow during a brief shower!)
The smell of the ocean, the sounds of the marina and endless stars that touch the sea------ THIS is the essence of the Crested Cottage.
We HIGHLY recommend you stay here and we wish to THANK our host and hostess for sharing this lovely cottage with us. DJ and Scott, Ellington,CT
