Great Long Weekend Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We recently spent 4 nights at the Marshview Cottage and we enjoyed ourselves very much. House was fully equipt with everything we needed in the kitchen. Loved having the washer and dryer. Bedrooms were very comfortable (top floor room is a little warm). Nice quiet area and very easy and close walk to the beach. Only complaint would be the staircase. I thought it would be really charming and add great character to the house, which it did! However, not the easiest to get up and down. We were unable to bring any of our bags upstairs and ended up leaving all our clothes on the first floor. As adults, we were able to handle going up and down (the steps are slippery and make you dizzy) but I would not recommend renting this house if you have small kids. I could see them easily falling down. Other then that, a great experience!

Owner's Response: We appreciate your review. We are aware of the the difficulties of the spiral stair case and advise families with small children and people with trouble doing stairs of the dangers. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay other than this detail. Look forward to your stay in the future!
