Guestbook comments from the owner

This location is a bit of paradise. I have been coming to this cottage for several years. It is the way life used to be. Walks on the beach go for several miles, we biked into the old village of Ocean Park, walked to get lobsters from a neighbor, ice cream at a vintage year old Ice Cream stand. The kids enjoyed Funtown and

Aquaboggan. You won't be sorry if you rent this clean, convenient, relaxing location for all. Truly worth every penny we have spent over all these years.

Very relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay .. the house was nice and clean and perfect for a relaxing weekend ... The only thing we would change is the mattress we slept on was rough, but everything else was perfect!! I would recommend this house and stay here again.

The perfect place to unwind.

  • 5 of 5

The Little Seashell is a lovely escape for anyone who just wants to unwind and surround themselves with nature. From the eternal sound of the ocean to the delightful song of the Mockingbird in the pine tree out front, it is all a balm to the soul. The cottage itself was a pleasant surprise from the gas fireplace for the cool mornings to the wonderful enclosed front porch that looks over the dunes and ocean. Although we did some exploring of nearby towns a few mornings, we found ourselves anxious to get back to the cottage. Sue was available and helpful without being intrusive. We did not want to leave and we will definitely will be back.
