We are welcoming and caring hosts who like to make our guests feel at home here in Aquinnah and comfortable provide a very clean and beautiful cottage. My husband Brian, who is the Harbormaster of this town, and I have been renting our guest house to many happy vacationers since 1993, and we know how important your vacation is and strive to make your stay restful and happy!
We live near beautiful Philbin Beach, and this magical 5 acre property is simply beautiful. An ancient foundation with massive rocks houses a private, secret garden. The level, landscaped lawn gives you an estate feeling, yet a consciously unmanicured area is host to hundreds of beautiful birds, deer, rabbits, owls and more.
The cottage is cleaned with eco-and organic products, and we take great pride in outfitting it with 100% cotton linens, towels and bedding.
We have been told that our cottage is airy and bright. It feels cool during the hottest summer days, and it is fun to prepare meals in the kitchen that is open to the living room. 2 Sliders allow access to the spacious deck. You can hear and see the ocean from our cottage.
