Everything we hoped for

We spent the off season at Sea Rose Cottage and found it to be everything we had hoped for: retreat, muse, and oasis. No matter when you're planning your stay, the location is superb: just a stone's throw from Seapoint Beach, with a breathtaking view of the open Atlantic with its shifting tides, seabreezes, gulls’ cries, lobsterboats plying, glorious sunrises, and sunsets reflected on evening clouds. Yet only minutes from great restaurants, shopping, and culture - if you can tear yourself away.
The cottage is fully and delightfully furnished…just bring your clothes, camera, and journal (there are some great reads already on the shelves). Nancy has thought of all the little things to make your stay comfortable, from fine linens to a well-equipped kitchen, from cozy bedding to beach chairs to outdoor grills.
We spent the majority of our time in the sunroom, with its beautiful natural light and commanding view of the ocean. Step out the sliders to the stone patio with Adirondack chairs for lounging, surrounded by the owner's beautiful perennial gardens. The smell of roses and the sea perfumes the air, and you are serenaded by songbirds and the lull (or crash) of waves on the berm.
Our family's time here was incredibly peaceful and restorative. We can't recommend it - or the gracious owner, Nancy - highly enough. You won't want to leave (we sure didn't). - The Fraziers
