Dream Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Aunt Pattie's Cottage is a dream, from the peaceful secluded location, the gorgeous sunrises and sunsets to the amazing attention to every detail in the home! My husband and I along with our two children enjoyed every minute of our stay and only wish we had stayed longer. The owner is so gracious, friendly and accommodating. We spent hours relaxing on the screened in porch enjoying books, puzzles and games. It felt so great to disconnect from our busy lives and just be together. The home is beautiful, comfortable, outfitted with everything you need to stay put and enjoy cooking and creating memories. The towels are amazing!! I went home and ordered some for our personal home. Can't wait to go back next year! Thank you for everything Gannt!

Aunt Patty's Got the Right Idea!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is in the most unique setting. Being next door to a protected area means so much. One of the biggest benefits is the night sky away from city light interference. The screened in porch is heavenly. The cottage itself is nicely updated and includes high end bath towels and bed linens. The property was exactly as described and when we had need of the caretakers they were spot on. The owner was very nice and generous as well. We just loved our time here.

Absolute Best House to Relax on the Beach!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Cottage is perfectly located on a wonderfully quite beach!! It was exactly what we were looking for for our family! It was so nice not to have to pile the whole family and all our beach stuff into a car and drive to beach!! Some of us could play on the beach while others could still be in the house making food, taking naps, etc. The owners have thought of everything to make the house feel like a home away from home. It is beautifully decorated and the layout was great for a family. The enclosed porch was our favorite place for meals, game nights and relaxing! The kids had fun staying in the bunk room but it was also nice for us to also have our own separate private master bedroom. We can't wait until we come back again and are actually in the process of hopefully booking our next trip to Aunt Pattie's Cottage :-)

Perfect, Exquisite, by FAR our favorite vacation! Don't look anywhere else... this place is a dream!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is amazing!!! From the moment we turned onto the road, we knew we had chosen the perfect place. And then to walk in and see the beautiful cottage, views, décor, music playing softly in the background... we were speechless. I cannot express how happy we were to stay at Aunt Patties cottage. It is the perfect location. Close enough to go into town, but just far enough out to be away from everyone. The porch is amazing. We spent most of our time there, if not on the beach. We enjoyed watching "Henry" every day. He took many walks with us down the beach. We found shell after shell, especially after the storm rolled through. The owner kept in touch with us as if we had known him for years. If we needed anything, he was only a text away. We truly appreciated the special touches he has made throughout the cottage. We've been looking for that perfect place to go back to year after year and I know we've finally found the place. We celebrated our 20 year anniversary here. It was perfect. We cannot wait to share this place with our children. We won't look anywhere else to stay, this place has it all. If you want to cook in, the owner has the kitchen well equipped. I can't even think of a thing that needs added to this place. This was a dream vacation. Thank you Gantt for allowing us to spend a week in this beautiful cottage!
