Yarmouth House Rental Photos and Description
3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6

Newly renovated spacious 2 story fisherman's cottage. On the upper floor two bedrooms (one the length of the house , the other smaller), a breakfast nook at the back with fridge and microwave, and a large bathroom with a bath on legs from which one has an angled view of the the water. On the landing at front are table and chairs to relax, and look out to sea. Downstairs is fully open except for one bedroom at the front, which has a bay window looking over Cockawit Bay and its glorious sunsets. The same holds for the living room , which has a propane fireplace (very safe, with lovely flames, should fogs make it chilly), a table by the window, and a large couch to read and snooze and watch the constant change in sky and ocean.(As one delighted guest said, 'It's like a movie.') The living room is open to dining area and kitchen at the back. Issues: the house sits by the road, so there is some traffic and children must be watched: there are houses to each side. We have TV and internet. There's baseboard electric heating for cool days, as well as a Victorian style (propane) fireplace for both warmth and atmosphere.

Warm, Inviting and Peaceful

During the third week of September 2013, my husband and I had the good fortune to spend a relaxing week in Walter’s absolutely charming home. Situated in the quaint and friendly town of Barrington, we found this rental to be everything, and more than advertised, the home, which has been beautifully updated, is warm and inviting. The atmosphere is that of home rather than a house. The property is a nice size, and well maintained with a lovely ocean view. We loved the wonderful mix of cosy century home living, coupled with the luxuries of updated appliances within a nicely stocked kitchen. We enjoyed the comfy living room which faces the ocean and boasts breath talking sunsets. We were well received by Cindy who is the house keeper (lives off sight), and Remelda who provided us with terrific local information. She has a good knowledge of the area and gave us excellent site seeing advice. Although, never intrusive, both ladies made herself available as needed, and were both personable and well organized. As Walter mentions in his description of the property, the ladies are more than willing to provide fish or lobster dishes on request. As suggested, we did take advantage of the offer and had the best fish n chips dinner EVER! Walter was both prompt and very helpful in correspondence. Overall it was a pleasurable experience, and we would not hesitate to return.

Owner's Response: How pleased we all were to have these fine guests stay at our place and to get such positive feedback from them. They were kind to the two local ladies who make sure there is nothing lacking in the house and advise on the best local spots to visit. Throughout, they relished the warm atmosphere and size of the accommodations, and the beautiful Woods Harbour sunsets. And before taking off for elsewhere, they made sure the place was spotless. We'd be happy to have them back anytime.

Immaculate Retreat near the Ocean

Just spent a relaxing few days in this wonderful immaculately clean house across the road from the ocean. Sitting by the propane fireplace watching the sunset and the lobster fishing boats was heavenly. Both the owner and the local contact were very helpful. I would also recommend The Lobster Shack in nearby Barrington.

Owner's Response: These guests could not have taken greater care of the house nor been kinder to the staff. What a joy for us all to meet such fine people and to hear they found the place as inviting and warm as advertised--and that to the point they've determined to come back later this season. How we'd love to have all our guests of this caliber--and perhaps over time as we develop a loyal clientiele it will be just so. ..
