A lovely 1880's updated antique on historic Powder Point, is just a short walk from Big Beach across the Bridge (one of the longest open wooden bridges in the world). The home is very private with a deck (with outdoor shower) facing off the rear of the house into the back field providing personal privacy for you and your family. The newly renovated kitchen provides the opportunity to prepare wonderful gourmet meals.

Not really set up for guests.

  • 2 of 5

Check with the owner to see if he has resolved the following issues:

only coffee maker was a percolator

no instructions for TV; couldn't figure out how to get content; did not appear to have cable

had to ask for kayak (it was not on property as described, but owner brought it over; not easy to figure out where to put it in the water, though; a map would be helpful)

beds were not made, just linens laid out for us to make beds

towels and sheets were old and didn't match

In addition, note that there are two sets of connecting bedrooms; you have to walk through one bedroom to get to another. The largest bed was a queen.

If you leave the bathroom door open when you shower, the smoke alarm will go off.

The house is old and charming and the floors are beautiful. The owner asks that renters not wear shoes in the house.

Owner was very available by text to answer questions.

Great home and rental expereince

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful antique farmhouse on Powder Point was a wonderful place to live. The proximity to Duxbury Beach, Snug Harbor, Duxbury Schools and Millbrook made it an ideal location. The house itself has so much character and charm and is situated on an expansive lawn. We have had such a good experience renting this home and highly recommend it to others looking for either a short term summertime vacation or a longer term rental. In both cases the benefits of its location and charm of this house are outstanding.
