              Manager info

              About: Owners Rick & Susan Lewis are the fourth generation to own this property, and have many memories with their three sons in the cottage. Rick & Susan spend most of their time managing their small family-owned bookstore in Dallas, Texas, and love any time they can spend in Duxbury. They are grateful to be able to make Triangle available to others.

              Why Duxbury:
              Triangle is a quaint summer cottage built in 1920, and the owners love keeping it as close to its original design and intent as possible. Triangle is truly a 'getaway' where you can relax, reflect, refresh and renew. Triangle doesn't have all the amenities of a 5-star hotel, but that's not its purpose. Triangle is a cottage retreat, designed to be whatever you need it to be.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              The scenery doesn't get any better than this! Come experience the peaceful serenity of this unique location.
