My family recently spent a week at this cottage and cannot say enough good things about it! Not only is it a spacious place with big rooms, but the floor plan is well layed to offer privacy for the bedrooms. Everything was extremely neat and in great condition. My kids (19, 17, and 15-all athletes and over 6') didn't feel cramped at all. The kitchen was huge, clean, and fully equipped allowing us to cook many of our own meals. Once you head outside things only get better. There were miltiple decks with lots of seating. There was also a private stairway with a very rocky beach. The lawns were roomy as well. The best part is the private float. It was so fun to watch the tide, jump off the float, kayak into the bay and Atlantic, and lay on the float. The water is closer than you could imagine and we spent many hours watching the lobster boats just right in front of us. We plan to return next year and do not anything bad to say about the place!
Rustic charm, modern comforts, and what a view!
We rented this place for 2 weeks and loved every minute. A kayakers dream - we paddled every day, sometimes to the cribstone bridge and twice out to Pond island for a memorable lunch with a few hundred seagulls. We spent as much time as we could sitting outside on the front porch and small deck, occasionaly wishing for a bit more shade, but there are trees in the front yard for those who need it. In a nice neighborhood for those who like to walk for exercise (some of the other houses we have rented in the area don't have anyplace to walk, so we appreciated this a lot.) Even on a rainy day, we were abld to sit inside and look out on picturesque Lowells Cove just a few feet away, and felt like we were totally "on vacation". Great wireless internet service kept all the adults and teenagers happy. The house was very comfortable for our multi-generation family, and the rooms were all bigger than we expected based on the the photos. One caveat - the stairs to the bedrooms (all are upstairs) are very steep, but our 83-year old managed fine as long as she held on to the banister. We hope to come back!
