clean, comfortable cottage. We came for the Smuttynose half marathon--we were 2 blocks from the start! The beach was pretty empty most of the week being it was fall, but the weather was gorgeous and we enjoyed watching the sunrise on the ocean. Sue was very accommodating--the kitchen was a bit small but very convenient and well stocked for the 2 of us and our dog (we did not have to pay extra for her). A nice place for a small family.
