The cottage is absolutely perfect for a couple. It is quaint and comfortable and has everything you could need. My boyfriend and I rented the cottage for a few days in early April and found it to be a perfect fit for our desires. The close proximity of the beach, the coziness of the cottage, and the off-season seclusion all made for an ideal escape - exactly what we were looking for. During the season, I'd imagine the feeling to be different - busier, noisier, less private - but during the off-season it was magical. We are already planning our next getaway to Nantucket and Barque.
