Perfect for reuniting my family
"Having a large, active family with everyone going in different directions, it has been difficult to bring my family together this year. This small cottage provided a perfect solution that offered great outdoor activities including clamming, crabbing, fishing, kayaking, nearby beach, clam/ice cream shack and most of all, great memories."

"We had a great time at this wonderful house: great kitchen, close to beach, and Diane was just an excellent host. We will be back. Only watch-out: all the neighboring houses are rentals too so if you want peace-and-quiet, stay away from the summer season. The kids next store start screaming very early in the morning!!! Otherwise, we loved it. The highlight: Hanging out in the beautiful backyard with the fire pit and dining table."

"Five friends and I are in withdrawal after having a great ladies' week ! This beautiful house is very clean, well-stocked with kitchen supplies, comfortable beds, and lots of open living space. It was nice to have the linens and towels supplied. What a treat to have a shed with beach chairs, bikes, and outdoor game equipment. For the most part, we began and ended our days on the screened-in porch. The owners, Michele and Dave, are pleasant to work with. We're planning on returning next June."

"My family and I stayed at Periscope in June. We needed a place that could accommodate an extended family group. The house was perfect. There was ample space to afford everyone privacy. Our group totaled eight, but there was room for more. It worked well for the children, the youngest being three, as well as the seniors in our group. There are three full bathrooms-one with a bathtub and two with showers. We never ran out of hot water and the pressure was great.
The house is well appointed with plenty of linens and kitchen equipment. We cooked and served meals for all of us and friends who were staying near by. There is a large BBQ if you want to cook out. There is a washer and dryer and clothes line, so you can pack lighter when you travel.
The house and grounds are lovely. The plantings are amazing and a wide variety of birds visit the feeders outside the kitchen window. Th large wrap around porch has room to eat out, sit and relax, or for the children to play. From the porch you have a sweeping view down to the water. There is a dock and we spent a considerable time enjoying that setting. Inside you will countless books to read, a large library of DVD's, games and toys.
If you need granite and stainless steel or want a place to throw wild parties, this place isn't for you. If you want a tranquil setting for a perfect seaside vacation, Periscope is perfect. The photos give a very accurate view of the house.
Periscope is the kind of house you see in pictures and movies and wonder what it would be like to live there.
On the practical side, the owners are very easy to work with. A cleaning crew came and polished up while we were staying there. The beaches were close by, the pizza man delivers, and we could find anything we needed in town. This property is perfect for lazy days or as a base to enjoy the beaches and numerous attractions in the area."
