  • Perfect Place for our Little Family

    "We were immediately taken in by the Mates Cottage, everything was perfectly situated for us and our 1 year old daughter! Having traveled with her before, we always come prepared, the Mates Cottage was an ideal fit for us. Her pack and play fit perfectly in the living room without making an obstacle, with the very comfortable master bed room behind an accordion door that she loved playing with. The living room couch was comfortable with ample floor space for our daughter to play, and the tv channel selection is impressive (although there is so much to enjoy on the island, we didn't watch too much tv). The kitchen/dining area is well stocked including cooking and serving items, as well as a wonderfully surprising inclusion of breakfast staples including some delicious (and I think homemade) preserves as well as juice/milk, muffins and bagels. We spent some time in the yard, full of comfortable chaises and tables and chairs, and took a short walk to the beautiful salt pond that felt like our own private dock. Close to town to the south, beaches about 1/4 mile to the south and the Northernmost point ~2 miles away, this cottage is perfectly situated for all activities the island has to offer, while remaining quiet enough to feel like "home". The pictures do not do this cottage justice, the cottage owners were extremely friendly and gave us some great suggestions for activities. Our daughter loved the farm and she got to pet a kangaroo! We also enjoyed eating at the Oar and the Poor Peoples Pub, very family friendly and the food was delicious!! We would definitely recommend staying on this property, there are lots of options depending on the size of your "group", while maintaining the sense of privacy and personal comfort."

  • A secret I don't want to share!

    "Based on the pictures of this property I really wasn't sure what it was going to be like. The pictures don't do this place justice. It is bigger than it looks with cathedral type ceiling except below the loft level. This house couldn't be in a better spot on BI. This house is all about location. No frills but who needs frills when you have beach on either side of you within minimal walking distance! We never went to any other spot on BI for the beach. The sun rises on one side of the house in the morning and sets on the other. Great great views and got wonderful pictures of these and all the deer in the morning too! It is a bit of a ride to town on a mostly sand road...yes sand...not dirt. So we really wouldn't bring our bikes next time. My kids had a ball and the loft area was perfect for them (ages 9 &10). I wouldn't put young kids up there though. I've been reluctant to tell any of my friends about the house because I don't want them to snag it from beneath me! I just want to keep it a secret! "

  • Amazing Time at the Cottage

    "We had a wonderful stay at the cottage this summer. The location was perfect. The views were great and you really felt like you got away from it all. The owners were very nice and seemed to take extra care to make sure everything was just right. The cottage looks exactly the way it does in the pictures, only better. It was our first summer here and I hope to come back for many more."
