Perfect if you love natural light and tranquility!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I and our two dogs spent Thanksgiving at Charlie's lovely home. Great yard (but not fenced in). Great location--less than 15 minutes to Warren Dunes, wineries, restaurants, and more. On the inside, the home is perfect for a small group, couple or individual. The house is full of natural light due to skylights and windows. In the master bedroom, an entire row of small windows on the upper wall allow you to see the sky outside--very beautiful. The beds are comfortable. The kitchen is wonderfully equipped. The living room is super cozy, with a fireplace and big flat screen TV. Finally, Charlie is fabulous--very good with all communications and very nice!

Darling, cozy, cute house!!!

  • 5 of 5

Was the perfect place for us. The weather was yucky but the house was so cozy, cute and clean. It had everything we needed and we loved our weekend stay. The heated floors in bathroom are wonderful and the fireplace made our weekend cozy and lovely. Thank you Charlie!

great escape!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a couple nights at third coast cottage! It's such a nice place and well located. We enjoyed escaping the hustle and bustle and spending a few nights away from it all - and with September temps in the 80s, we were well rewarded!! Charlie was very accommodating and helpful and we would definitely stay here again!

This house was great, way better than we expected! This was a great trip to NB, and this cool little home was a big reason why.

All the amenities and charm

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is well kept, stocked and conveniently located across from the famous Redamaks Tavern. A huge backyard with plenty of firewood to burn. Charcoal, lighter fluid and briquettes are supplied for grilling. Wished our boys were a little older to enjoy all the games that were provided. Strong wifi and plenty of channels on Xfinity.

We really enjoyed our time here. Home was very clean & easy to stay in. Having bikes to ride was wonderful, as was the fire pit. Would definitely come again.
