Before even arriving we had a very easy time renting the property. MaryGrace was very easy to work with and answered all of our questions. The property is located on the quiet side, but down a long private drive. The views are incredible, the tides dramatic. You can sit on the deck and watch the boats in Bernard come in and out at a small distance. Nothing motors past the actual house dock but Seagulls, ducks and cranes! The home is well appointed, open and welcoming, the furniture very comfortable, beds also. Kitchen is well stocked with all the things you need to eat in, or warm up what you have brought from all the local groceries and shops. Hiking is close by, the water cold, but you can swim right from your own dock with the tides. There are a few great restaurants within a very short drive. There are a few grocery stores and small marts, but if you are stocking to eat in you may wish to drive further back to the top of the island (15 mins). The pictures do not do this hidden gem justice. Great for a family, and our dog adored it too.
