  • Great secluded and quiet location!

    "The Treehugger was a wonderful place to stay for myself, husband, and 11 year old daughter. It is a peaceful and secluded location overlooking the marsh. We brought our bicycles and rode a short distance to the beach. We would recommend this location!!"

  • Great

    "Was an awesome stay. Great view. 3 generations enjoyed it. Parking spots sucked so close and if anyone did not park just right in the middle, then made it difficult to park in assigned spot. "

  • Best place on the island

    "This house is in the perfect location -- far enough away from the crowds that you can enjoy the peace and quiet, but close enough to walk to the action when you're ready for it. The downstairs space is great for kids -- games and a TV, foosball table, while the parents chill out upstairs on the deck or in the living room, with windows all around. The decor is sunny and welcoming, and the house is updated with modern conveniences but still feels lived in and comfortable. John and the neighbors are super friendly and make you feel welcome and at home. I found everything I needed in the kitchen, and the pillows in the guest room are better than the ones I have at home! While you're there, be sure to bike down to A-Js Dockside Restaurant for a delicious dinner on the back river, and for happy hour take a walk down the beach to Fannie's on the Strand and people-watch from the 3rd floor deck. I'm looking forward to going back for a longer visit!"

  • Lovely place

    "My family rented this cottage and we were very impressed with it. Very spacious, great layout, great location. I would like to recommend that you get an ironing board and iron. Was a little disappointed that the main tv downstairs did not have a CD player, or DVD player. Overall we would stay here again for sure. Thank you for the use of your wonderful place."
