We rented this house for one week in August with our 2 children (6 and 2 1/2). The house was spacious, beautifully decorated, and well equipped (beach towels, dvds, games, books, cooking utensils, etc...). There are many lovely spaces to sit and read, the yard is large, and has a great swing, climbing rope, hammock, and fire pit for s'more roasting. The walk to the water does require that you cross a road, but is not too far from the house. Also important to note that there is a town beach about a mile down the rode that was a good bike distance away. We went on many lovely canoe and kayak trips and saw bald eagles, loons, and a Great Blue Herring. The owners were responsive and helpful. I would highly recommend this place!
