Nice location

  • 1 of 5

Good location if you like Charlestown Beach & a deck overlooking the pond. Shocked & disappointed upon arrival. The owner sent an email the afternoon of our travel day - so of course we did not see it until after our arrival, we discovered a huge stain on the bedroom ceiling, owner said it was from a plumbing leak fixed prior to check in. Vintage House could have been charming, but wasn't clean & smelled funky, probably because the rodent bait in the basement worked. They should hire a new cleaning service. We felt we overpaid paid for this house. Recommend you see it before you put any money down.

beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

House is older and could use some TLC. Deck is really nice. Upstairs bathtub should be converted to a shower. 1 neighbor who I guess owns the empty lot next door seemed to be minding our business ,I didn't like being watched. Owners are super nice though and overall we enjoyed our stay.

Terrific Spot on the Pond

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 plus assorted relatives stayed for a week this summer and had a wonderful time. This is the fifth house we've rented in the Charlestown area and this was our best stay. The location on the pond is incredible and the house was great. When we first pulled up we thought it might be on the small side but we fit fine. The house is a very well maintained classic 30's cottage with a downstairs bedroom and one large room upstairs with lots of beds - kids at one end, adults at the other. There are two bathrooms and an outdoor shower so no bathroom bottlenecks.

The thing that set this property apart from the others we've rented was the location on the water along with the yard, dock, hammock, huge deck and indoor porch. The deck also has a table that can seat at least 10 (we had 5-6 usually) and we ate outdoors every day. Our kids had a blast netting crabs out of the pond with the sweet "neighbor" kids and were outside ALL THE TIME!

Also, Julie was really nice to work with and even found a few things we left there and sent them to us right away.

Great Spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week on the cove....kayaked every morning, to the beach in the afternoon, relaxing on the deck at night. A great location, and water views from 3 sides of the house. Kitchen small but well equipped, and we grilled every night on the big Weber. Highpoint is the huge deck with the water view, relaxing to watch sunrise or sunset. Owners great to work with, always a plus.

Perfect Charlestown vacation cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have rented in Charlestown for a number of years. We stumbled upon this rental because we planned a June vacation. The pictures do not convey the charm of the cottage. It is warm, inviting and nicely decorated with an extremely large deck overlooking Allens Cove. The kitchen is well stocked with quality items including lovely wineglasses, dishes and pots and pans. We enjoyed cooking in the small but very functional kitchen.

We drank our morning coffee on the bench by the deck and soaked up the view. We watched geese make their way around the cove each day which added to the tranquility. We launched our kayaks from the dock and sunned on the deck. We didn't go to Charlestown beach the first 4 days because we had everything we needed!

The cottage is listed as a 2 bedroom but the upstairs bedroom is front to back with 2 beds, a futon and a trundle bed. There were plenty of room for our grown kids.

We either walked or biked to the beach and looked forward to returning at the end of the day to the large outside shower and deck. It is truly a peaceful place yet close to all the area has to offer.

We look forward to next year!!!
