Girls' getaway

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed at Cove Cottage for a week in September 2013--so I am late writing this review but I have never forgotten this beautiful spot! Clean, perfectly appointed, quiet, beautiful view. We walked and biked (bikes provided); we cooked at home and went into town. The Ramp restaurant was a favorite but mostly we loved sitting on the Adirondack chairs watching the boats come and go. The owners were accessible and friendly; they came the last day and gave a ceramic tile with a painting of the cottage as pictured above. I highly recommend this beautiful spot and look forward to returning again.
