A Special Getaway

These waterfront cottage is one in a million! It has a very authentic atmosphere - as if you are back in the 20's. The glassed in back porch was our favorite spot for enjoying the view and large seafood dinners. Our young children loved swimming to the raft just off shore and the parents enjoyed the safety of a protected swim area and calm waters. The neighbors all introduced themselves and were very welcoming. We also discovered there is a playground area close by and a club house that has ice cream socials. The cottage has a very charming outdoor shower which became our favorite feature along with the generous pantry. Also, the views from the front bedrooms are spectacular. Bob and Mary are already friends of ours and were wonderful to work with. Wait till you see the unique handrail Bob made by the entry and all his wonderful artwork adorning the walls.

Rustic beach cottage

Beautiful view,wonderful people, great week. This is a perfect spot for a young family or if you want a relaxing getaway. It is rustic, including the amenities, but that is part of the charm. Upsides are too many to list, only downsides are no Wi Fi, no air conditioning , we had a very hot week despite the fans, and it is very rustic for the price. Plenty of activities near by or can do absolutely nothing, it's up to you.

Thank you Mary and Bob for sharing your home.

Summer 2011 was our 3rd summer in a row using this cottage and every year has been perfect. This cottage has the perfect balance of beach access, historic charm, and is well equiped for large meals. The beach is perfect if you have young children as we do as they can explore the entire private beach and never be out of sight. Even on the best days, the beach is never crowded. The kids can't get enough crabbing on the rocks, and the adults (once again) pulled about 40 pounds of clams out of the river within walking distance to the house. This house is a gem, and Mary & Bob are great hosts.

Great Cottage, Great Experience

Our week (Aug 2009) was amazing, it is a quiet and friendly beach and was so convenient for the 3 small children who visited. The cottage easily slept 6 adults and their children. The nearby playground was a bit hit when the kids needed a break from the beach. Even the toddlers could walk to the rocks and go crabbing. We harvested over 20 pounds of clams from up the street and made our own chowder outside. Everyone enjoyed swimming to the raft and basking in the sun. We love to cook, and the house is perfectly stocked with equipment pots/pans, gadgets, and spices, even all the lobster necessities. The outdoor shower was a big hit with the kids after the a day on the beach. Mary and Bob are great hosts and we will certainly be booking again.
