Two sisters inherited this property in 2008 from our dear dad, a builder who constructed it himself from the foundation up in 1954. The house was renovated and refurnished in 2007-8, but we kept some of the loving touches Dad built in, like the vintage main bath and the knotty pine kitchen cabinetry. We spent our own childhoods in this neighborhood and on this beach, and we hope your family makes memories here as fond as ours. As dog lovers ourselves, we welcome well-cared for, well-behaved pets (per our pet agreement) - they'll enjoy their time here too!

Mary and Melissa purchased this house in 2008

Beach and marsh views, a variety of birds and wildlife, and good neighbors.

A hilltop setting with plenty of privacy and room to play sets this property apart from most beach cottages in the local area, which are crowded together on tiny lots down near sea level. The house has a large front yard and parking well off the street for 3 cars with room to spare. Beach access is deeded and shared only with our longtime neighbors, offering an exceptional degree of privacy.

A REAL GEM IN A LOVELY PEACEFUL LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This home was even nicer than described. It has a lovely feel to it - by that I mean, you just relax. Everything needed for a break is provided; boats, buckets, picnic baskets - you name it.
The house is very clean and cosy - and retains all the character that lends to the restful atmosphere. There is an ample supply of linens, towels and you name it! - and the beach is just a stroll across the road down a private path. It is nicely private and you can leave beach things there for the next day.
Communications with the owners was spot-on and very responsive. Any questions we had were promptly answered.
A perfect location for a restful break and family get together. Lots of useful places and nice seaside towns and oldie-worldy places to visit nearby.
We would definitely recommend this property and hope to get back again next year.

CLINTON PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
Just a fantastic stay and we were very impressed. Only regrets was the yard man failed to maintain the back and leaves were every where which made me feel badly for the owners.
The pink toilet is a challenge but workable and other than kudo's to the owners for a great home.

Owner's Response: Thanks Frank, we're so glad you enjoyed your stay! As for the pink toilet, the old girl will be getting a much needed organ transplant this winter; she does require a bit of maintenance but especially after working overtime this year! :-) Also thanks for the comment about the leaves - we'll follow up on that. By the time we got here they were covered by 4 inches of snow, so we appreciate your letting us know! Best, Mary & Melissa

BEACH HOUSE PLUS

  • 5 of 5
Melissa and Mary have created a warm and comfortable place to enjoy some relaxing time by the shore. They have updated the house while still retaining its charm. We stayed for a weekend to attend a family wedding and found everything to be just as presented.

The home is in a wonderful beach side neighborhood. The beach is just across the road. We had several nice walks on the beach. The area has wonderful bird watching and other wildlife - we saw a beautiful red fox from the kitchen window!

The house is clean and well appointed. Great linens, well appointed kitchen. Melissa was easily available by email and took care of our needs - even mailing back the clothes we managed to leave behind!

Wholeheartedly recommend TwoSisters!

THIS WAS ONE OF THE BEST GETAWAYS WE HAVE HAD!

  • 5 of 5
Private setting, with the water just a few steps away, yet so close and convenient to everything!
The house is clean, comfortable, roomy and ready for you to arrive and settle in. You will not be in-want of anything!

This home will more than satisfy anyone’s needs; if you want to spend your vacation sitting on the beach with a book, it is perfect. If you want to be active, ride bikes, kayak, row boat, fish, bird watch and go on nature hikes, it is perfect. If you want to go to thrift stores, antiquing or to discount outlets, it is perfect.

The kitchen has everything you will need, you can also grill! If you don’t want to cook, there are restaurants abound!

The owners were so pleasant and helpful, from the very first correspondence, answering all of our questions. We felt truly taken care of before we even walked in the door.

I would recommend this vacation home to any family member or friend.
Thank you Two Sisters!
