Some Background:: The cottage at 228 Edgewater Drive East, was purchased by Jack and Ruth Tucker in 1962. At that time the house was unheated, rustic, and was on cinder blocks with a crawl space underneath to keep the oars and life jackets. They rented it out all but two weeks each summer that they used with their six children. Jack enjoyed taking his family fishing and clamming. His fishing, though not always successful, was certainly memorable. He made great clam chowder (with a Boston accent-- chowdah). They made improvements on the house as they could, winterized it, and eventually stopped renting it. The six children and their families began managing it in 1990, after Jack's death, and began renting it again. They made some more improvements connecting a downstairs bedroom and play area. It remains the haven that Jack and Ruth intended for family vacations. A place to relax and enjoy the sand, sun, and water.
