Great weekend stay!

  • 5 of 5

I had a great stay. The cottage was comfortable, neat and clean. A checklist was provided so you'd know where to find things and what to do upon departure. Also, some information about the area was included on the list. Downtown Scituate Harbor is a five minute drive away. I was lucky enough to get there before the Memorial Day weekend, so the area was quiet.

Charming cottage located in harbor, beautiful ocean breeze, gracious hosts

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful time here! Would definitely return! Owner nearby but very unobtrusive. Comfortable, clean accommodations, pet friendly. Beautiful town, great restaurants, close to Boston and the Cape but you don't really need to go anywhere, just exhale and relax!

Perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

1. Diane is a wonderful owner and hostess. She came and checked in on us as soon as we arrived. She gave us a couple of tips about the town. When I was asking questions about where to pick up diapers/wipes for my baby, she offered to pick up some groceries for us. She let our kids play on a swing set in her backyard. And was only a text away if we needed anything for the house.

2. The cottage was an absolute getaway and had everything we needed even for a family of 4. Diane provided us a playpen for our youngest to sleep in. She left us baby gates that we could use to prevent our youngest from walking onto the street. Yes, the beds in the living room were a little old but it wasn't a problem since we only slept in the bedroom. The best is just being able to go out on the porch to have some coffee or beer and enjoy the views and the beach air.

3. The surrounding town, Scituate, is quaint and cute. The lighthouse is literally just 4 houses away with a beach for the kids to play on when it's low tide. The small town entering it has some good restaurants, a couple of bars, a Walgreens for essentials, cute shops, and a harbor for boating activities.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Walk to the lighthouse, sandy beaches or the little store down the road. Cute, well-decorated cottage with everything you need for a getaway. Pet-friendly is an understatement, Diane supplied us with a large black kennel so we could leave our dog for a few hours safely in the cottage, and a baby gate for the porch so not to worry about her running into the road. We will definitely return on our next trip to Scituate.

Cozy and clean cottage with the best location in town and stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. Diane was a fantastic host, the check in and check out process were easy and flexible with our schedule, and you cannot beat the deal for this area. The house was tidy and cozy. The decorations gave the beach cottage the perfect accents to made the entire weekend cozy and relaxing. I grew up in Scituate, and this is one of the best locations that you can stay. We were able to take walks downtown to the shops and restaurants, and the best beaches are within walking distance, or only a short drive away. We would love to come back!
