Quintessential New England Beach House - LOVE IT!
My friends & I have stayed here 3 times this year already & will keep coming back for more for years to come. This beautiful Victorian is decorated with turn of the century antique furniture throughout all of the house (except the living room, which experiences the most wear & tear). They should have pictures of the interior on this site, as it is part of the charm & overall experience. While the beds are Victorian, the mattresses are new & we all slept quite well here. Three of the four bedrooms have water views & the cross breezes are fantastic, even on the warmest days. The bathroom is a bit on the small side, but is typical of homes from this time frame. I believe there's an outdoor shower as well. The kitchen has a gorgeous soapstone style farmers sink (that I threaten to steal every time I stay there). I would have no problem hosting a dinner party in the dining room which is also furnished with some beautiful period pieces. There is some wear & tear, but every time we stay, we notice work has been done to maintain the property. New England winters & salt air presents an ongoing challenge to homeowners living on the beach, as the upkeep is tremendous. We enjoy taking walks down to the beach & the Brant Rock center every day - restaurants like Arthur & Pat's, The Celtic, Hop, Venus, Haddad's (Best seafood!) & the Fairview are all within a 10 -15 minute walk. If you're looking for a Nantucket McMansion or something out of Coastal Living Magazine, this isn't it. But if you want a true Victorian summer cottage rental, you don't need to look further than this home. I look forward to returning to the cottage this weekend!
