Delightful, calming cottage
Delightful, calming cottage
We had such a wonderful time on our New England trip, and much of it was due to our peaceful, relaxing stay in your retreat in Marshfield. That's what it felt like. We plan to return to the area again; now we know of a private, inviting place to call our home while there. My husband and I kept saying on our last day, "But we just got here! We need at least another week." Thanks for offering such a special place to travelers who enjoy staying in a lovely neighborhood near the beach. Again, a delightful space with such whimsical, enjoyable touches. My favorite activity? Lying on the bed in the master bedroom looking out the high windows which framed the top of the 10' hedge and the blue sky above, just enjoying the changing light.

The cottage was lovely and totally equipped for our every need. We especially enjoyed the back screened porch where we saw cardinals eating the grape tomatoes. Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate during our visit. The entire cottage was very clean. TV and WiFI worked great. The gardens are awesome and pictures cannot do them justice. There is adequate parking and easy access through the front gate or driveway. The location is great with a very quick walk to the beach. The owners were friendly and informative.

My husband and I spent two separate weeks in this VRBO rental after our granddaughter was born. Everything about the stay was fantastic. We loved the quick walk to the general store and beach. My favorite activity was riding my bike on the beach at low tide to Duxbury Beach and even a couple of times to the town of Duxbury. We loved the herb garden, flowers, decor, Weber grill, gas fireplace and outside fire pit. The beds were very comfortable and towels and linens were in excellent shape. We would definitely rent this cottage again.

Great week in August

The place was spotless and well-equipped. It is obvious the owners take great pride in the upkeep of this property. Beautiful gardens and flowers front and back. Spacious and well-lighted inside, with comfortable beds in both bedrooms. About a 10 minute walk to the beach. Plenty of parking for visitors. I would highly recommend this cottage.

Not Your Typical Beach Rental
Not Your Typical Beach Rental
The second I saw the gardens, I knew I'd be in heaven here. It was wondeful to be able to step outside and grab a fresh cucumber or tomato or a handful of herbs. It was like having your own persoanl Farmer's Market right outside your back door. I am familiar with the area and knew I wanted to be in Green Harbor for the beautiful beach. From past experience, my expectations of finding somewhere as comfortable as my own home were pretty low. Rentals typically have a lot of people coming through them, they look worn, they're furnished with everyone's left over stuff. Not this place!! Wow! Beautiful furnishings, soft linens, comfortable mattresses, lovely glasses and dishes for entertaining, not a thing you could possibly need. I hosted both my book club one night and some girlfriends another night and all exclaimed as they walked in "whose house is this?" They'd thought I'd borrowed it from a friend or relative for the week because it was so lovingly furnished with no detail overlooked. This is a perfect girls getaway place with plenty of room to spread out, great little gathering spots between the porch, the outdoor sitting area with the firepit, or just inside around the couch. Plenty of restaurants within a very short drive, several beaches to choose from if you're wanting to mix it up although my personal opionion is that it doesn't get better than Green Harbor and a 5 minute walk. And I can't say enough about how gracious the owners are. They were such warm and kindhearted people. The thought and love they put into this home is evident in every detail.

Owner response: We are very pleased you thoroughly enjoyed your stay at our bungalow. It means a great deal to hear how much fun your family & friends had. We are appreciative that you took the time to post such a lovely commentary. We will make every effort to continue offering our current & future guests a fine vacation getaway.
I'd like to start by mentioning that Mr. Kelin, the owner of the property, was extraordinarily kind and helpful. That put me in a positive frame of mind from the get go, and I believe helped make my stay enjoyable from the first phone call when we discussed my proposed dates of travel. It didn't hurt that the weather cooperated and that the area is lovely. I so enjoyed my walking and jogging around the main street - 139 up and around to the beach road in Green Harbor. I did this circle every day. I also biked down to Duxbury beach a couple of times. The expanse of beach in both areas was beautiful and not so crowded, even though a movie was filming nearby. As far as the actual cottage, the feature I loved best was the screen porch - called the 'Three Seasons' room in the description. I enjoyed all of my meals out there and it was serene and put me in a good mood every single day. I'll also say that the property was appointed with everything I needed for cooking and I didn't feel like it lacked for a thing, except I couldn't figure out how to work the TV remotes, but then I'm a bit of a luddite, ha! The main bedroom where I stayed was SO comfortable, which is saying something for a person with chronic insomnia! And the flow through breeze was just enough so I didn't feel like I needed the A/C even though a couple days were muggy. The character of the whole cottage really was charming and the gardens were gorgeous. I especially loved the Japanese Maple tree and the smell of the flowers upon entering the front porch area was sublime! Can you tell I had an enchanted stay? Lol! I believe this home fits the character of the area and while small fit my needs as a single traveler very nicely, although it could accommodate more people with no problem. I enjoyed the jetted tub and the rain shower shower head. The linens were more than adequate with the exception of no hand towels, which wasn't a big problem. I also appreciated that paper products and soap were provided. All in all an excellent property, and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to experience the real essence of this beautiful area. I was so relaxed there and felt so much at home! .
