Reviewer Comments:

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Second Wind. As the photos show, it is a vintage beach cottage nestled in the dunes right on the beach. The deck was our favorite gathering spot in the evenings. We rented the 3rd week of September & lucked out with warm summer weather! While the cottage does not have central air there are window units in most rooms. The area was quiet & not crowded during our stay so the 2 parking spaces were always available.

Reviewer Comments:

We enjoyed our stay at the Second Wind. We stayed with three kids (2 and 3) and they were able to do the trail to the beach just fine, especially the three-year-olds. It was nice being close to the water and the house was very private despite how close they are to one another.

Reviewer Comments:

This vacation home was a real disappointment for us. There is a trash pick-up problem, and as you walk down a long narrow path to the door, you smell the trash in the full trash cans. We set the cans out front on trash day, but no one picked them up, and then we had to add to. There is no garbage disposal, so there is food rotting in the cans. Door knobs fell off, the French doors do not lock with deadbolt, the upper slide lock in the living room did not stay fastened. The kitchen was good, but as I said, no disposal and we cooked all week. It is an old house and the floor boards creak loudly, so no sleeping late if you take guests with you, which we did. The bedroom with the bunks is dark and uninviting. There is a window air conditioner there but not in the master bedroom. The 3rd bedroom is off the kitchen, and has a door with glass panes, so we had to hang a blanket there so our guests could use that room in privacy while we were in the kitchen. And be careful - the glass door opens into the refrigerator door, not into the bedroom, so that was a concern also. There is no cable on the TV, and we never could get the system to work for an entire show. You cannot see the lake from the house. The house is surrounded by dune. One of the pictures looks like the lake is visible from the porch, but all you see from the porch is dune grass. The beachwalk is a very narrow footpath over the dune. There is another pathway, but be advised it is over and down a dune which makes it hard walking to the beach with lots of beach stuff. The best things about this house was the kitchen which was brighter and had good stove and dishwasher, and the French doors/windows in the living room which let in a lot of light and the deck where we had breakfast one morning and had a deer feeding alongside us in the grass. But for the money, we were frustrated to have to keep fixing the knobs/locks and dealing with the trash.

Reviewer Comments:

I came to Second Wind with my wedding party. We have been prepping for my wedding and needed a weekend to rest and relax. This place gave us exactly what we needed. We had the master bedroom, which had double doors opening towards the deck and towards the lake. One of my favorite things was sleeping with these doors open, with the fresh air coming from the lake and I could hear the waves all night. The bed was also super comfortable. The rest of the house had such a warm feel to it. Its like I knew this place so well by the pictures that I knew it the moment I walked in. The beach was not a far distance and we had our own private path. We didnt even need to put on the ac because of the breeze we got from the lake. I will definitely be renting this property once a year. This is the type of place we would love to purchase for our own one day. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to get away from all the city life noise and just chill.

Cute cottage, just what we wanted. Great location on the dunes. Only complaint is, the windows DO NOT have curtains in the front bedroom. All the lights in the neighborhood, the moon, and sun made it hard to sleep. Also, made it uncomfortable to change in the bedroom.

Reviewer Comments:

The cottage is fine and it suited my family of six. The kitchen is adequate and the deck is probably the best part of the property. The parking situation is horrible. It was the 4th of July so it was very busy. Thank goodness we only brought 1 car. There is no way that 2 cars could fit in that spot. There is a telephone pole in the so-called second spot! We couldn't even invite our Uncle to visit as there was no parking. BeachWalk should just advertise it as 1 spot. The neighbor's son actually took our single spot on day 2 and we had to threaten to tow him to get our spot back. The parking situation really caused stress for me as a renter. Every time we returned to the cottage, I was afraid we would not have a spot.
