Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi! Just wanted to send a quick email to thank you and let you know that we had a terrific time. What a beautiful home! We loved the cottage and beach and feel like we made a fabulous discovery with this trip.The wildlife was amazing and the kids learned so much from all your books. They turned over horseshoe crabs every morning. Master bedroom view of the sunrise was my favorite. The kids squealed with delight when they discovered the "secret" bedroom on the porch. Thanks again and have a wonderful summer.
