Great location, great house, perfect getaway

It's been about 9 months since we stayed at this property in Pocologan, so we've had plenty of time to digest the entire vacation, which I think is necessary before any review. My wife and I constantly bring up this vacation in conversation, and without a doubt, it was one of the best, most relaxing we've ever had. As a point of reference, my wife and I are both 30 and with this vacation, we were looking for a very low-key getaway. We live in Central Pennsylvania, about a 12-hour car ride from New Brunswick. We drove the long haul to Pocologan with our dog (thanks to the owner for being accommodating), and it was absolutely worth it. This house is very private and remote, which is exactly what we were looking for. Like most other reviewers, we spent most of the week at the house... reading, doing jigsaw puzzles, sitting on the decks, exploring the property, walking along the rock beach, BBQing, and watching several old VHS and DVD movies that are at the house. We did venture out to Saint John (a very cool little city), but we barely scratched the surface of all the things we could have done. For those that want to jam-pack their schedule with things to do, there are plenty of options. We mostly just wanted to unwind, and this property is perfect for that. There was another reviewer that mentioned something about the glass doors being hazy. We don't agree. The view from every room was amazing. And I think it's unfair to rate the house lower because of that, especially at this price point. There is, as others have mentioned, a fishing operation off-shore, unseen in the photos. But in our opinion, this was not a disruption at all. The boats are quite far away. And if anything, it actually made the view more interesting, as we could watch them come and go. The entire experience staying at this house was great. Another big advantage to this property is that the owner is quick to answer your questions and help you with anything you need. We've stayed in other rentals over the years, and it is 100x nicer to have an owner who truly cares about your stay. If you're looking for a quiet getaway with no hassle, we absolutely recommend this property! You won't regret it.
