Diamond in the rough

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.

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!

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.

Light & airy cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, cute, light & airy modern cottage! Our 4 day stay included bringing our dog, for an additional fee. Backyard is not fenced (bring a tie out), includes a fire pit, lawn chairs, and picnic table. Easy walk to town, beach, and restaurants!
