Very cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Blue Door Cottage! The house was very clean and comfortable upon arrival. I really appreciated the attention to detail in the cleanliness...even the sponge in the sink was new! The beds were comfortable and the cottage was cozy but still seemed to have a lot of space with the open floor plan of the kitchen and living room. We enjoyed sitting out in the screened in patio with the sting lights on at night. The back yard is well maintained and quite large. The beach chairs and toys provided were in great condition. Paul the owner was super friendly and very easy to communicate with. I would definitely stay here again in the future!

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely home this was to stay in. It was cozy, comfortable and beautifully decorated. There was everything in the kitchen that we needed and more. We sat in the screened in porch and enjoyed a glass of wine without being bothered by bugs. Saw the bunny too. My sisters and I enjoyed our first trip together and would definitely come back again. Thank you for a beautiful setting for us.

Beautiful well equipped cottage in a great location for exploring The Cape

  • 5 of 5

Myself, husband and two boys (14 & 10) have just enjoyed a fantastic week at this great cottage. Everything you need is here, we really couldn't fault the place! We enjoyed exploring the whole Cape from here but also loved the fact you can walk or cycle to some lovely beaches and restaurants within just a few minutes (we loved Smugglers Beach & the snack bar here was great for a quick lunch). The Bikes and beach chairs in the garage were also a great addition and the boys loved the outdoor shower! We can't wait to return one day, thankyou Paul & family for hosting us.

Clean, updated cottage in great location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 2 adults and 2 children enjoyed this cottage very much. Everything was spotless and updated. We loved the private back yard to play in and the outdoor table and outdoor shower. The garage was great for storing our bikes and stroller. Very helpful that the owners had beach chairs, toys, and a wagon there for us to use. They also provide bikes. We loved biking all around the neighborhood and to the beach. Also walked to mini golf and The Skipper Chowder House (which was very good!). We loved that we were close to everything but still in a quiet, private location. The small cottage is perfect for a small family and also has a screened in porch with very comfy furniture. We all loved watching the bunnies in the yard and the beautiful hydrangeas. Can't wait to go back!

We loved staying there!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cottage in quiet setting. Separate screened-in porch that was very pleasant place to read or listen to the birds and watch the local wildlife. Near to some of our favorite restaurants. The host was very helpful and friendly. We plan to stay there again next year.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Danice, for the feedback, as well as the treatment of our home. I do love sitting in the screen porch after walking to the beach, before everyone is stirring, and watching the bunnies, turkeys, birds, etc. We would love to host you and your family again. Be safe.
