Children are allways welcome, however, there is a spiral staircase that leads to the terrace level. I have two children and when they were 3- yrs old, this was a safety concern for us as the railings are about 8' apart and there is nothing to 'block' them from accessing this area.

Winter Stay

  • 4 of 5

We rented the cabin for a week in January so we could attend our niece's wedding. The location was very nice, and the cabin was larger than it appears in the pictures. The yard was also large, and there was a very nice view of the water with a lovely dock. It was very affordable, and even with the winter/rainy weather, we had a wonderful time.

Another memorable experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here 3 years ago for our honeymoon. Recently, we were looking for a relaxing getaway and this was the first to come to mind. Neither time has this place failed any expectation, it was a wonderful stay and the owners are outstanding. Their communication is top notch and they ensure your stay is enjoyable. There would be no hesitation in considering coming back here. Plenty of space for family, full kitchen, secluded home, great deck overlooking the Cove with a dock. Thank you for welcoming us again!
