Gourmet kitchen ***, Viking gas stove, Liebherr Refrigerator, dishwasher, Bosch clothes washer and dryer and two wood burning stoves. The former four bay carriage house garage is now converted into a generous all purpose summer loft with custom designed dining table (12 persons), living area with nine foot sofa. pull up chairs and occasional table, NAD sound system, and ping-pong table for rainy days. Also on the ground floor and adjacent to the living room and kitchen is a bedroom with bath. The second floor offers a master bedroom and two children's or guests' room and full bath.

*** the kitchen although well furnished with modern appliances, lacks an abundance of counter space - we use the dining table in the kitchen for food preparation.

Car: Recommended

there are two wonderful restaurants, one upscale with bar and inn on the island called Nebo Lodge with a few rooms to rent - a great find for your guests when the Garage is full. The second, Calderwood, serves simpler fare, pizza, salads, and wine. There are other food options.
