Serenity by the Sea
It is my job to organize the annual family reunion, gathering relatives from all over the country to get together for a week in the summer. The Blake House was a perfect setting for our celebration. The house is prettier than the pictures and the location is so incredible....set between the ocean and the marsh, the constant breeze was perfect for spending hours on the decks overlooking the ocean or the marsh. It was so comfortable to be outside and the choices were many, in the sun or the shade, and we all enjoyed the porch swing. The house is immaculate and there is so much space and it is so very comfortable. Plenty of room to relax and stretch out....and we never felt like we were tripping over one another, even when 10 of us were gathered around the kitchen table. It was so wonderful to meet the Blake Family upon my arrival and get a guided tour of all the amenities of the home. Everything you can imagine is available...tons of beach towels and beach chairs, plenty of paper products and soaps and shampoo. The bottle of wine was such a nice touch and the binder with all kinds of local info was very helpful. We mostly enjoyed relaxing around the house during the days, strolling the beach, paddle boarding on the ocean, and kayaking the river in the marsh. We found several great places to eat in Scituate Harbor, which was actually within a comfortable walking distance....and so picturesque. The Mill Wharf was a favorite, more upscale dining experience, and TKO'Malley's was great for more casual fair. There is plenty to do in the area if you are so inclined....but the house is so comfortable and between the beach in front and the marsh behind, we didn't feel the need to stray very far. And at night, the waves lull you to sleep and it was so wonderful to wake in the morning to the birds and the soft motoring of the fishing and lobster boats. Though it is on a popular beach, it is so very peaceful and quiet. It was a truly wonderful week in a truly wonderful home !!!
