For breakfast, walk to Scratch Bakery for one of their famous homemade bagels as described in the New York Times and other goodies. Enjoy a 3 mile round trip walk past Spring Point Light and Joe's Boathouse to Bug Light and back. Relax on our front porch on one of the rockers and watch the boat traffic on the water and the people and dogs having fun on Willard Beach.

A little slice of heaven for dog owners!

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location! Practically sitting on the beach, I found that this was one of the few rentals that not only accepts dogs, but embraces them. Owners are dog lovers and were a pleasure to deal with on every level.

Willard Beach allows dogs on the beach 7-9am and again from 7-9pm and the rental is a short walking distance to the community's bakery "Scratch" - the unofficial morning meet and greet gathering place. There is a scenic walking path that winds around the bay and leads to a light house. Breathtaking views of sunrises and sunsets. A very earthy and authentic beach community where one can relax and feel welcomed by the local residents.
