Traffic is very light on Cobb Island making it perfect for biking, walking and enjoying the native wildlife (osprey, herons, swans and ducks) adding to the serenity of the peaceful waterside.

A wonderful community playground is just a five minute walk away while the Cobb Island Grocery Store, The Cove Coffee and Wine Bar and Cobb Island Marina/Ledo's Pizza are also located nearby on the island.

The property is just beautiful. It made my family feel like home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

Overlooking the Neale Sound and watching the Sun rise in the morning and set in the evening was breath taking. Fishing off the pier was also great fun. My family really enjoyed it and look forward to rent once a year for our family get togethers to make more beautiful memories.

A Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Waverly Cottage is a treasure! We were looking for a quiet place to get away and celebrate our anniversary and Waverly Cottage exceeded our hopes and dreams!

The cottage has recently been redone with an excellent eye for design and comfort. Extremely clean and welcoming, everything we needed was provided. We spent a good amount of time out on the deck watching the water and the water birds. We very much look forward to a return visit.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect and just recently renovated. It was beautifully decorated, couldn’t have been better and we really had everything we needed for relaxing weekend. Recommend a walk to The Cove, which was a highlight of our trip, for meals, coffee, wine bar and more. We will definitely stay at Waverly Cottage again! Thank you!

Waverly Cottage exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Waverly Cottage on Cobb Island not only met but exceeded our expectations.

The property was pristine and right on the water overlooking the beautiful Neale Sound. The updated bedrooms, kitchen and living space was exactly what we were looking for, and made for a great time with family cooking and sitting around the dinner table laughing and enjoying each other's company.

The porch was also a great point of enjoyment, as we sat out and cooked on the grill, and listened to the unabated silence of the island and water at night. In the mornings and evenings you could clearly hear the resident Loons of the area, which was incredibly peaceful and gave our family the peace and tranquility away from the City we were looking for.

Cobb Island itself was also great. We bought steaks and other items from the Cobb Island Market, and enjoyed appetizers and drinks at the local restaurants. We also played golf at the Swan Point Gold Club which is a stones throw from the island. Needless to say there is plenty to do and enjoy on the island.

Although the weather was cold, the view out over the water was wonderful to wake up to everyday, and we are planning to come back during the summer months to rent, and hopefully bring friends to utilize both Waverly and Cranberry Cottages which are next to each other.

I would highly recommend Waverly cottage to others looking to get away from it all and enjoy time with friends and family in this beautiful waterfront cottage.
