Historic Home; Beautiful Grounds
Submitted: September 8, 2012

We recently returned from a week at this home. My husband and I went with our 10 month old daughter, our parents and a friend came for a few days as well. Pros: Gorgeous grounds right on the Bay, clean and well kept, wonderful pool, nice new dock. Kayaks and canoes provided for use. Kitchen/bathrooms equipped with all basics including soaps, linens, paper products and kitchen essentials (coffee, sugar/sugar substitutes, salt/pepper). Plenty of common space for socializing, many games provided. Dog friendly - our Lab might have had more fun than we did! 10 min drive to town with many shops/restaurants/activities. Bedrooms as follows: 2 rooms with 2 twin beds, one room with queen bed, one room with double bed. Cons: 2 of the 4 bedrooms have no doors for privacy/noise control. 3 of the 4 bedrooms have very steep, very narrow, curved staircases to get to them. I'm short and I hit my head going up the steps to our bedroom at least 3 times. Carrying an infant up/down any of these staircases not super safe. Trees planted around the pool are poisonous (oleander) to both dogs and humans. I would not recommend this property for families with babies/ very young children or people with physical disabilities/difficulty getting around. Would be fine for a group of adults or for older children.
