Manager info

About: Owners Rick & Susan Lewis are the fourth generation to own this property, and have many memories with their three sons in the cottage. Rick & Susan spend most of their time managing their small family-owned bookstore in Dallas, Texas, and love any time they can spend in Duxbury. They are grateful to be able to make Triangle available to others.

Why Duxbury, Duxbury, MA, USA:
Triangle is a quaint summer cottage built in 1920, and the owners love keeping it as close to its original design and intent as possible. Triangle is truly a 'getaway' where you can relax, reflect, refresh and renew. Triangle doesn't have all the amenities of a 5-star hotel, but that's not its purpose. Triangle is a cottage retreat, designed to be whatever you need it to be.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The scenery doesn't get any better than this! Come experience the peaceful serenity of this unique location.
