Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Glenn,



We forgot to write in your guest book about our experience, this letter is our expressions of thanks.



We came to celebrate our friend's 50th wedding anniversary. When we walked in the door we knew right away this was the right choice.



Your home offers a friendly atmosphere, great location, comfortable beds and a gorgeous deck to take in all of the beautiful surroundings.



Glenn, you are a wonderful host. Your caring manner was obvious from the time we first spoke to the time that we were driving home, when you called about a camera being left behind. Joyfully, we discovered the camera was yours.



The weather you ordered could not have been better!!



Thanks for everything!! We will be back.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely accommodations. Beach front, two decks, a hot tub, comfortable beds, excellent kitchen set up, and great communications with the owner. We would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a place in the area. A real gem.

Great house, weather not so much...

  • 5 of 5

Well, the house is great!!! As other reviewers mentioned, there is just about everything a vacationer would ever need there. Such a nice touch to have the Keurig pods, live flowers, and fresh fruit ready for us too. Thank you, Glenn.

Weather-wise--which, of course, Glenn has no control over, was a different story. Nor'easter and super cold wind for 3 of the 5 days. High winds even blew the top off the hot tub and broke it's retaining strap--we had to hold it down with concrete blocks and couldn't use it. But, not to complain too much, it was certainly comfy in front of the fireplace with a great bay view. And we did get in some nice, although very cold, strolls along the bay (and the storm brought up so many huge shells that we even started ignoring them after a bit). We certainly will need to come back during a warmer season so we can appreciate this very nice house even more.

Thanks too, for allowing us to bring our two Weimaraners with us. They had a great time too.

Incredible!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we climbed the steps to the cottage, we knew we had found the perfect place! (The 70 degree weather helped too!)

Glenn has gone out of his way to make his guests feel comfortable. The views of the bay were astounding...we all felt the stress and anxiety of our daily routines disappear. Thank you for sharing with us! We have already discussed when we can return for Girls Weekend 2018!!!

beautiful house & location, just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Feb 2017: My belly dance troupe and I stayed at the cottage for our annual dance retreat where we work to finish choreographies and of course, have some bonding time. We chose this place for the location, the great price, and the space for us...little did we realize it also has a huge mirror which was perfect for us for choreographing. The house is just gorgeously decorated, very well stocked, and all the beds very comfortable. The beach is stunning, with sunrises above and fiery sunsets across the street on the salt marsh side. We spent our days dancing, and our evenings soaking sore muscles in the hot tub or basking in front of the fire, it was just perfect. We're already making plans for next year! If we'd had more free time we would have spent it beach combing (we're all biologists/naturalists by day) but there was much dancing to do! Glenn is also so nice, and easy to work with. Thank you for such a lovely place for us to call home for a weekend, we can't wait to return!

The property was very well kept & clean when we arrived. The lay out was great for 2 small families.

  • 5 of 5

We were excited to get away for the weekend & Glenn made it so easy by answering all of our questions quickly. The house was impressive & very clean. Another family of 3 went with us so we had a total of 7 people & 2 dogs in the house. We felt like we had plenty of room & the hot tub was nice to take advantage of after the kids went to bed. The kitchen was well stocked with all the utensils & pans we needed. We cooked on the grill one night & it was so easy to prepare & use. We all loved how close the beach was & how quiet the area was throughout the day & night. We will definitely be back!
