Charming family cottage built by owners’ grandfather in 1959. The McGowan Cottage’s most spectacular feature is the wraparound porch - the perfect place to start and end your day. Choose a rocking chair to enjoy your morning coffee. As the day passes, boating creates an entirely different scene before your reward – brilliant sunsets over Banks Channel.
Ocean side beach is only a two-minute walk away over the dunes. During the day, if the ocean side seems a little crowded, you can always enjoy your own private beach on the sound.
Don’t forget the boat! The pier offers two boat slips and still provides ample opportunity to enjoy sound side activities. Fishing from the pier has always been a lucky spot. Enjoy your own fresh catch of the day - anything from flounder to croaker – and, most evenings, you will glimpse the Great Blue Heron who has also found the pier’s fishing to be among the best.
Cottage offers room for 8-9 to spread out in 4 bedrooms, over 1700 square feet. The eat-in kitchen is a wonderful place for family gatherings. The house is child friendly, but please, no pets. This is the cottage the owners have been coming to all their lives and we hope you will spend some time there as well. Stepping into the McGowan Cottage is like returning to a simpler, slower, more peaceful time. It’s everything the beach should be.
Must be 25 or older to rent home. Reservations made under false pretenses will be subject to cancellation/eviction with no refund given.
