The Cottage is at the end of a long driveway on a former estate in the heart of Smith's Point and is within walking distance of 3 beaches, including a private beach. "The Cottage" is a separate building attached to a Carriage House and was built about 1920 but modernized in 2014. It sleeps 6 comfortably and can expand to sleep 8.

About Carol Bundy

In 2007 I inherited the Carriage House. It's been in my family over 100 years, the land for longer. So I feel a deep connection. All my childhood summers were spent here.

Carol Bundy purchased this cottage in 1900

Why Carol Bundy chose Merrimack Valley & Essex County

Fully modernized in 2014, this rental has tons of charm. It's at the end of a long driveway so it has lots of privacy and is very safe. Easy walking distance to superb beaches, public and private, as well as being in easy reach of the town of Manchester means this rental is both convenient and offers a great sense of "getting away."

What makes this cottage unique

We are in a superb location convenient to Boston, near great beaches and a wonderful harbor, but we are also secluded and private. It's the best of both worlds!

Gorgeous Vacation at "The Cottage"

  • 5 of 5

Our week at "The Cottage", was, bar none the most relaxing enjoyable vacation my family has had in a very long time. The manager, Carol was welcoming and helpful in orienting us to the local places we might wish to explore. Don't be deceived by it's name, "The Cottage" is spacious, light, and every room was unique, comfortable and charming. Everything was clean and pleasant. The kitchen was well designed with great new appliances. The setting is private, surrounded by lawns, shrubs and trees and a place to grill. The beach is nearby. There are lovely quiet walks to enjoy and the town of Manchester has great shops and an ice cream place the kids loved. My whole family was able to relax. I wished we could have stayed another week, next summer we hope to!
