Good cottage for certain groups
This cottage has a great location for Plimoth Plantation and the beach. I walked to the beach a few times with my little ones (a stroller plus a 5 and 7 yr old walking). There is a sidewalk most of the way. The beach is mostly a rocky beach, especially at high tide. At low tide, there are sandy stretches. Although the house is located on a main road, the cottage is back from the road so we weren't bothered by traffic at all.
The A/C kept the main living spaces downstairs cool, but the playroom/futon sleeping space did not stay as cool. Although there were 3 beds in the twin room, one was right under the A/C so we chose not to use it. Seemed a bit loud in this location.
Due to the 3 twin beds and the various toys available, this is mostly a good cottage with kids. However, I would not recommend it for the crawling through about 4 age group. For one, no tub. I was able to wash my baby in the large kitchen sink, but at 20mo and petite, she was about maxing out the size for that. Also, the kitchen "cabinets" are actually curtains which was a hassle with a little one who was so curious and always wanting to open them and pull on them. Rita did provide gates for the stairs upon request, but the upstairs gate didn't work right, so that could be an issue for some. As another person mentioned, the stairs are VERY steep.
Rita was wonderful to work with and very quick to handle any mishaps.
This property has a wonderful large yard and a shed full of stuff to use in the yard and at the beach.
A lot of cobwebs, some dirty dishes and some stained towels, so its not for the nit-picky, but I didn't feel dirty staying there.
Lots of restaurants, Walmart, Target, and a couple of major grocery stores as well as a couple of malls provide anything you might need while there (within about 15 to 20 mins away)
Overall a great stay.
Families with Teenagers,
Owner's Response: Thank you Sarah for your input, it was a pleasure meeting you and your beautiful children.
The cottage is very clean as people have noted in their reviews, unfortunately with a quick change over I am sorry that a few items were overlooked but will pay special attention to these things in the future. I wish you had told me about the upstairs gate as the stairs are steep, when I checked it out it was working fine, just a little wider area.
All the best - Rita
