My mom rented this antique cottage for the entire family because it was close to her brother's house in onset. It is truly beautiful and you really feel like you are stepping back in time as soon as you pull up to the house. The house dates back a few hundred years so it is full of history. It was fun trying to figure out how to get from point A to point B!! Looks are very deceiving. This house looks small from the pictures, but it actually has several staircases and "wings" of bedrooms. There is a wonderful, large screened in porch, a nice sunporch, the parlor and a dining room that fits the whole crew! The kitchen is nice and big with everything you need. There is even a separate laundry room and storage porch for all of your outdoor gear. The house is impeccably maintained with comfortable beds and plenty of bathrooms. The outdoor shower is wonderful!!
The property is simply beautiful. A rolling lawn leads to the water. It is very quiet and there are thousands of birds chirping away...especially first thing in the morning. The house is at the beginning of two points with a cove in between so there are nice walking routes. "Club Mud" is a short walk from the house, It is a charming little clearing on the cove with adirondack chairs, a hammock and boat dock. We loved setting up our beach chairs on the dock and floating with the tide.
All in all, it was a house big enough for our crew but with lots of options (I didn't even get to the tennis court!!) for fun and relaxation. A perfect family reunion house!!
