Great Place!!

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a week at The Fogcutter in Higgins Beach and it was great from start to finish!! Gretchen, the owner was there to meet us when we arrived. She showed us around and made herself available if needed throughout the week; a strong statement of her commitment to the house and tenant happiness. The rest of the week was also excellent with warm temperatures, warm waters, and great waves.....something for everyone.

The house is bright, airy, and the location is on a nice quiet street. I highly recommend this propoerty and am already looking forward to returning next year.
