Wow! This gorgeous property is well-maintained in a great location with great amenities, such as a washer/dryer and dishwasher, as well as cool little footlights on the inside stairwell that are on dimmers. Perfect for a nightlight! In fact, all the lights in this home are on dimmers. An example of the thoughtful touches that you'll find in this place.
Everything was immaculate when we arrived, and there were leftover supplies (garbage bags, Ziploc bags, foil, Saran Wrap...) from previous guests which was great. We replenished what we used, and left them for the next visitor.
The location is wonderful, with Scituate Harbor, and all its shops, restaurants, and movie theater, about a 15 minute walk. Make sure you stop into Nona's ice cream, behind the movie theater, for some homemade ice cream. The commuter rail into Boston is about a 5 minute drive from the house, making getting into Boston a breeze. I think a one-way ticket was $8.50 for an adult. Peggotty Beach is right across the marsh, although you can't walk across the marsh to get to it. You can drive to it and park, thanks to the beach pass left in the packet of welcome information. You could also walk, but if you are carrying a ton of stuff, it's easier to drive.
The back deck is large and there is a table with an umbrella and four chairs, and a small gas grill that holds more than I thought it would. I think we fit 15 good size burgers on it at once. The flatscreen TV has an amazing picture and there are loads of cable channels to choose from. All the appliances are top-of-the-line, and the bamboo floors are gorgeous. My kids loved the Harry Potter-like room under the stairwell. The beds are very comfortable and the linens are soft and clean. The shower water pressure is good, and the hand-held shower head is a nice luxury.
Laura is a wonderful host, and is easy to reach and responsive to any questions. Thanks for making our stay so enjoyable!
