From the moment we arrived we were so happy we chose this home. From the classic aged wooden shingles outside to the wood panelling, wood buring stove and classiccottage style decor inside, it was all just what we were looking for. The property is fabulous. The main house has 3 bedrooms (2 with bunks) and a full bathroom on the first floor and a master bedroom with a 1/2 bath on the 2nd floor. The big bedroom upstairs has a sitting area and a deck that faces the water. It's amazing to see such INCREDIBLE sunsets from your very own house!!! The living room is super comfy and there is a HUGE flat screen tv, lots of games and books and a great stereo for entertainment. The kitchen has everything you need to cook and enjoy large or small meals. There is a guest loft with hard wood floors and two comfy twin beds over the garage/workshop with its own entrance only a few steps from the house. There is another deck off of the kitchen with a great wooden table, grill and plenty of chairs. The property is surrounded by large trees and wildflower bushes on 3 sides providing complete privacy and the back of the property is lined with a split wire fence, where the neighbors beautiful horses peek thier heads over in morning to say hello) The marina takes 2 minutes to walk to and the ocean is a mile down the road. In Season there is a great restaurant (Millies) and a small market again less than a mile away. Town was a 10 minutes drive (easy) and renting a jeep for the week was a huge plus. Cisco brewery is an 8 minute drive and there is a supermarket within the same distance. The owner of the house was so nice and made sure we had everything we needed. And the best part? We were able to bring our puppy, who had plenty of room to run during the day and loved stretching out at night on the upper deck with us while we enjoyed a few cocktails, listening to music watching the amazing Madaket sun go down.... We will be back!

Great home away from home...

Enjoyed a 1 week vacation with my grown children and their friends/companions. Excellant family getaway. We were able to bring our family pet, 2 yr old black lab with us and she was perfect in her vacation home as well. Yard was great for outdoor activities and grilling on the barbeque. Nice private area. The house has everything it says and more, we will definately be back again...
