Wonderful vacation!connection to nature&family

Wonderful vacation!connection to nature&family

My extended family rented the cottage to celebrate my father's 75th birthday. Although the number of bedrooms and baths was known upon reserving, we were pleasantly surprised with the size and spaciousness of the property. The home is much larger than it appears from the photos. Similarly, the view is far superior than that seen in the photos. It is spectacular! The lot is private with plenty of room to explore and for kids to play. We were very pleased with the home, the view, and the location. The porches are cozy and peaceful and were a natural gathering place each morning. The home was stocked beyond expectations. We were not in need/want of anything kitchen related or otherwise. The owners were very easy going and accomodating! They were responsive and informative when contacted prior to our visit. The property is within two miles of the town center of Duxbury and less than two miles from Powder Point Bridge and the big beach. The neighborhood is quaint and folks friendly. I would highly recommend this home for a relaxing vacation or family/friend gathering. It's a bit on the rustic side but moreso with regard to charm and character than comfort level and amenities. The place was great, the energy was great, everyone had an amazing time. We ranged in age from 5 years of age to 75 and all had a great time! We fished, canoed, kayaked, walked, lounged, sat, cooked, read - a bit of everything. There's something for everyone here - in the house, provided outdoors on site, and in town and the area. The markets are convenient, the bakery is amazing, I really have only positive comments - no problems or disappointments whatsoever. Thanks so much to Allyn and Sarah for your hospitality and kindness! It is so appreciated.

Perfect for families with diverse interests

  • 5 of 5
We just had an amazing week at this house. This house is perfect for family reunions or a get together with family and friends. There are a lot of places to spread out and relax. Other activities on the property include kayaking and canoeing.

The beach is a mile away accessible by bike or car. Parking is not a problem in the week days. Good fishing spot on the bridge near the beach.

I agree the house is much bigger than it looks – it has a separate unit below complete with bathrooms and a kitchen and a living area that opens up to the yard; perfect for the teenagers to have their own space to share with their own friends.

Love some of the furniture- right out of the sixties- Mad Men Style. Great owner, very easy to work with- definitely a major plus.

Perfect Family Retreat!

  • 5 of 5
Nice, cozy furnishings really make you feel like you are staying in someone's home. In fact, after meeting the owner, I understand it is a long time family retreat and he is just sharing the summer experiences he had growing up there with the rest of us!
Lots of beds; well-equipped kitchen; multiple porches and decks; WiFi --what else could you ask for!

Recent wedding rental

  • 5 of 5
I recently secured this rental for the groom's family and his groomsman travelling from Idaho and Alaska for my daughter's wedding. It was wonderful for the family including 3 children and a disabled Grandma to be together rather than in separate hotel rooms.
We put up a canopy in the backyard and held the rehearsal barbecue there so that Grandma could attend. We had beautiful weather,a spectacular view and a lot of fun. The house was very clean, not fancy but an interesting antique and Allyn was great to deal with. I would recommend it to anyone with a large group to accomodate!!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house for my son's wedding in Duxbury. Although the furnishings and decor are rustic, it is very well-maintained and equipped with everything you would need (including 9 fans which you will need if it's hot; no air-conditioning.) The house is much larger than it looks as it has 3 levels in the back. The lower level even has a second kitchen, along with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths and a living room, with direct access to the outside, making it perfect for several families vacationing together.

The views across the marsh to the beach were spectacular and the 4 acre setting was serene, with plenty of room for the children to run around and canoe for use at high tide. The beach and shops are within walking or biking distance.

The owner was very friendly and accommodating as well. All in all, it turned out to be the perfect rental for us and I highly recommend it.

This is probably the nicest and most well prepared cottage I have rented in the past 10 years. It is open, bright, clean, well stocked and roomy. Twelve of us stayed with company dropping in for an overnight bringing us to 15 on one or two nights yet we never felt crowded.

The views, from any room, are a delight, gorgeous, and the location absolutely the most tranquil. I rarely saw or heard my neighbors.

Although it states 7 bedrooms, which are lovely, the cottage still feels cozy and I will easily try to rerent even with only my husband. It will not feel like we have too much space mainly because of the way the cottage is designed.

The kitchen is large so two or three people could work together without bumping into each other. It, and the pantry, contain just about any tool needed to make a meal plus the gas grill is available.

The private swimming hole was perfect for the kids after a day at the beach and kept them completely occupied while meals were prepared and as the adults relaxed. This private area also has canoes available for easy access to fishing or just paddling about in the cove. The yard is large enough for any games like hide and seek and also offers a fantastic hammock to lay in with a good book for total relaxation.

One big plus was the bottom floor which has a huge TV room and is a great place to have the kids watch TV allowing the adults some quiet time on the 1st floor without any concern.

Since we were renters we did not have a beach pass but beach access was just a quick walk over the bridge and there is a drop off for a large family. Next visit I will sign up for a beach pass just to make it easier for us to go back and forth, it is easy to do and cheap enough that it might be worth it.

Duxbury does not offer a huge selection of restaurants but both Brant Rock and Kingston are close enough which expands your options. A trip to the ice cream shop is a must - even a nightly event. There are lots of options for shopping both in Duxbury and close by in Marshfield.

This area also offers real easy access to historical sites like Plymouth Rock, the Alden House, and even Boston is just a 45 minute drive.

I would rate this a 10 easily and wouldn't have left - ever - if I could have stayed.
