Perfect in every way!

We booked the Captain’s Cottage for Parents’ Weekend at the Coast Guard Academy. We wanted a place where we could hang out with extended family members and our Cadets could kick back a bit and enjoy their favorite home-cooked meals.
Upon checking in for our stay, we were amazed at how well stocked the home was. Everything we needed was there. It was extremely cozy, clean and comfortable. There were 11 of us in total, ages ranging from 7 to 73 and there was plenty of room for everyone.
The owner was out of town during our stay, but remained connected and available to us via cell phone, texting us upon our arrival to make sure everything was okay.
Although we had one day of inclement weather, it didn’t matter as there were a variety of things to do inside to pass the time – games at the dining room table, movies in the home theatre room (complete with Bose surround sound), or a tantalizing game of pool in the pool room! Some members of our party ventured into town and spent some time at The Book Barn – the local used book store.
One of my favorite features of this house (aside from the incredible kitchen) is the wrap around front porch on which I would enjoy my morning coffee and afternoon cocktail. The twenty-somethings in our crowd would rate the hot tub at the top of their list – they would soak their weary bodies every night under the stars as they listened to the ocean.
Our weekend at the Captain’s Cottage couldn’t have been better. I’d highly recommend it to others and if the opportunity presents itself, we’ll definitely be back!
