We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Seal Cove Cottage. The house is beautiful, cozy and charming. The house is probably 100 years old and is decorated accordingly, however it is very child friendly. My kids were able to run around in the house and outside without me worrying too much about their safety. The screened in back porch is the best part of the house! We loved sitting out there and looking out onto the bay. So beautiful and tranquil. We rented a canoe for the week and it was great. We took it out everyday on the bay and even saw seals. So cute to do only steps away from the house. It was fun for the kids during low tide to go down and treasure hunt for shells, crabs, etc. The house is so quiet especially at night and everyone slept great. The owner Ginger was so great leading up to our stay and gave awesome suggestions about where to eat, swim, hike. You can tell how much she loves her cottage and wants others to love it too. Loved our stay and want to go back soon!!

We just returned from having spent a week at this charming cottage. It offers all the necessary amenities (and then some) as well as privacy, ocean access, and gorgeous sunsets. Our grandchildren enjoyed exploring the beach and had plenty of outside area to play. There is also a convenient boat launch nearby. Many thanks again to the owners for sharing their home and a wonderful vacation had by all!
