Wonderful Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

This property is a true gem! My husband and I stayed here with our sister/brother-in-law (so 2 couples and no kids). The layout is perfect for 2 couples and would also be perfect for families with children! This house has EVERYTHING you could need to have a great time. It is so well stocked with all the necessities and so much more...the owners have truly thought of everything. We especially loved the seclusion and wildlife! We saw deer every evening around the house and also a bald eagle flew around most afternoons! Being from a big city - it was amazing to see the amount of stars in the sky at night! We enjoyed fishing and lounging around during the day and fires on the beach many nights. This house is close to town and yet still very remote. The area is so beautiful and I almost hate to give away such a great secret!! You will not be disappointed staying here!
