A river of dreams house.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful house on the Shrewsbury river! The magnificent views of the bridge and water are sure to take your breath away. One of my favorite routines was to have hot oatmeal with a cup of coffee, while watching the skies change colors during the sunrise. This 3-bed room house is quite spacious and has enough room for a big family with pets. By the way, this is an animal-friendly place with a doggy park behind the property. This was a deciding factor for me as I only travel with my furry companion. The house is very clean and has everything you may need during your stay. I immensely enjoyed every day at this fabulous place and felt like home. The landlord, Larry is very nice and friendly and was quite accommodating during our stay. I will definitely consider going back and strongly recommend booking this River beauty for your next dream vacation!

beautiful well-appointed property, close to everything, wonderful host!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with Larry for 3 nights and had a blast. Larry is a fantastic host, the unit he gave us was beautiful with lovely views over the bay. Everything was in great shape. The property is perfectly located near to Sandy Hook and walkable to nice restaurants, ice cream, boat rentals, whatever your heart desires. We would absolutely stay here again and couldn't ask for more!

The view is the best

  • 3 of 5

The pictures are accurate. The views off the two decks are worth the price of admission. The kitchen, bathrooms, and family room are nicely appointed. So why only three stars? Turning down the bed the first night we found several hairs. Screech!! stripping the beds immediately and throwing them in the washing machine. Here's the thing, when something like happens you tend to look a little deeper,, a pretzel here, cracker there. So the cleaning crew needs to up their game. Additional demerits for the bedrooms. The other rooms are so nice, the bedrooms are lacking. No headboards, and the bedding is barely basic.

Back to the positive, we had an issue with the TV and the owner had someone there within minutes. The TV continued to give us grief, but did I mention the view? What the heck are we watching TV for anyway?

Quiet section of the Shore

  • 5 of 5

Quiet part of the shore, but close enough to whatever you want either by foot or car or bike. The house was really nicely done with great views of the river. Comfortable beds, clean and modern rooms. Larry and Peter were very accommodating and helpful with tips about the area, fishing, etc.

Great Place, Great Area, Great Host

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Larry's cottage. The area is great. We could watch boats float by on the deck and we were in walking distance of a large amount of restaurants/ bars.

Larry was a great host. He even let us stay a bit later than checkout time since the weather was bad our first day just so we could enjoy the sun a bit.

Thanks Larry we'll be back!!
