Beautiful ocean sunrises

  • 5 of 5

This cozy cottage is nestled among large beautiful ocean-side homes; a wonderful area for walking and biking with little traffic. It slept four very comfortably; easy parking, fully equipped kitchen, wi-fi, etc. made our stay a breeze.

Marilyn was a gracious host; I felt I could call her about anything.

Wee Cottage is located between Rockport and Glouchester making it a short ride to either for swimming, fishing, shopping, and really great ice cream!

Nice little cottage

  • 4 of 5

Cottage is small but is clean and has all the necessities. There is construction nearby so if you like to sleep in, maybe not the property for you. The neighbours are great, helpful and quiet.

Wonderful little cottage in a quiet area but with easy acces to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here! We were here for 10 days waiting to close on our house and Marilyn was a wonderful host. She stopped by once to meet the babies and otherwise gave us complete privacy. We had to call her one evening because the internet wasn't working and she called and had it fixed within the hour. The neighbors in the other cottages were very open and friendly as well and even recommended things to do in the area. We will definitely be recommending the Wee Cottage to all of our friends and family that visit!! Thank you for everything Marilyn!

Very Disappointed

  • 1 of 5

We rented the Wee Cottage expecting to find the amenities that were advertised, not a major construction zone behind the house and a fire trap. Upon arrival at the cottage, the owner told us that there was construction behind the house and that on Monday they would be blasting. This was not divulged to us ahead of time. Upon entry into the cottage, I pointed out to the owner that screen was not attached to the screen door. The owner replied, "Oh I know. I just had that fixed" We then proceeded to unpack and found out that the wifi and cable was not working. We also found that the refrigerator would not keep food properly cooled. I called the owner immediately. The wifi and cable was addresses and working by Sunday. However we still needed to purchase many bags of ice for our cooler. Later that day we found out that the windows were screwed so that you could only open some of the windows about 4 inches. Some windows would not open at all. Since the window that only opened 4 inches was the only window exit in case of a fire, this proved to be dangerous. On Monday morning, we awoke to loud construction equipment about 20 feet behind the house. The house was filled with dust and diesel fumes in 95 degree temperatures. We notified the owner that due to the above issues we would be leaving. She agreed to refund us however, a month and a half later, we are still waiting, even after several phone calls, emails and texts where she promised to refund the money. DON"T rent this cottage!
