We're always a bit apprehensive about arriving at a previously unseen destination - especially one that's newly offered and (at the time of rental) not reviewed. None-the-less, we were quickly put at ease upon arriving to find a charming cottage, fully furnished with everything we needed, eclectically decorated and with a million dollar view out the front window. The cottage was quite comfortable although we didn’t spend much time inside except to sleep and prepare and eat meals. Since the weather was superb, most of our time was spent outdoors – either on the rocky beach with a fire in the evening or peddling our bikes over 150 miles along the coastal and inland gravel and dirt roads and trails. If biking is your thing, then this is THE place for it! Absolutely beautiful vistas at every turn!
The hard part was tearing ourselves away from the view just outside the cabin. Plenty of constantly parading waterfowl and other critters to see – a large family (8) of turkeys picking the weeds for bugs, three eagles feasting on fish, plenty of buffleheads and mergansers, and of course, deer everywhere! The cottage’s location on the island’s southern point put us within a quick bike ride to the lighthouse and two beautiful sandy beaches for exploring and swimming. Our biggest problem was not having two weeks to spend at this great venue – the first to explore our brains out, the second to just relax with a book and a drink and watch the waves lap upon the shore. Next year we will plan accordingly.
