As adverstised, an impressive, authentic, enormous New England Cottage in a lovely community. The cottage easily handled the 20 family and friends that we had stay over. It is an ideal place to relax, unwind and listen to the sound lap against the beach in the front of the cottage. The community of Fenwick is pristine with all the activities a family could desire. The owners were incredibly responsive to all queries we had both during the rental process and duing our stay and were a joy to deal with. We definitely plan to stay here again.
