my husband and i truly enjoyed our week long stay at this cottage. it has a lovely view of green hill pond from the kitchen, deck, and relaxing screen porch. we kayaked in the salt pond almost every day. charlestown beach is just minutes away and there is a small beach on the salt pond just down the road. there are shops, restaurants, and nature preserves all within a short distance. although the cottage is located in a cute neighborhood our stay was extremely quiet. you can use the bikes to get ice cream, go to the bakery, get fresh produce, or go to the deli just minutes away. we will definitely stay here again.
