We loved the house, the location was perfect - could walk to "town" and to the ferry easily. The house was clean and comfortable with lots of character. It was nice to have a garage to keep all our beach gear.

Very cute house, great location. For what we paid I was hoping for nicer sheets, pillows towels and a few other things. There was a very large stain on one of the comforters. : 0 Which is not to be expected when you are paying what we did. Spending

Being new at this, I ran into a couple problems but the staff was very helpful and on the bowl even own a New Year's holiday weekend. I grew to love the cottage over the 10 days I was there, especially after discovering wear the pants were stored and where the dishes were. The location is great.
