We stayed here in the summer of 2008 for two weeks and it was quite lovely. We appreciate the rustic nature of the property. The charred wood beams in the homes narrow and quirky stairwell spoke of a long history and many family stories. The shabby chic cottage furnishings helped us get into the relaxed vacation spirit we desired. We had our bikes and road them easily to Town rd or old harbor. Our children enjoyed exploring the pond and woods nearby. We loved relaxing with a cocktail at the end of the day in the hammock near the stone wall, underneath mature maples, while we listened to songbirds. At night, the isolated property allowed for incredible star gazing, we saw so many falling stars one night we lost count. Convenient to center road and the airport we never felt cut off. I would encourage you to try this property if its your first time on island renting, or if you enjoy camping or rural escapes. We would go back.
