Relaxation at its best!

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I were looking for a relaxing mini vacation with our 11 month old son on my birthday weekend, and that is just what we got! Waking up to the woodstove burning looking out the window to the view of water just steps away was enough to make our stay unforgettable. We went end of September which was the perfect time to light the fire with the crisp mornings and chilly evenings, but warm enough to enjoy the private beach during the Day! I loved that my son was at complete ease in the sand and near the water. He absolutely loved it! The back yard was perfect for hanging out during the day, grilling out and eating meals. The cottage has on old grandma's house feel to it, yes it is dusty and the closest are a tad unorganized but I grew up in an old farm house so none of that bothered me; if anything it made me feel more at home. The owner was very informative, quick to respond to any questions I had and made us feel comfortable with our stay! I did not want to leave! I look forward to our new tradition at this beyond perfect beach stay!

Luxury views with a bare bones cottage

  • 2 of 5

Don't expect plush or modern accommodations in this little cottage. The views from the private beach and deck were wonderful but the cottage could use some updating. For the price, we will not be back. If it was 20% cheaper, we might consider it for another two night stay.

We had a quiet, peaceful weekend in this rustic cottage with a beautiful view of the bay.

  • 3 of 5

The house was situated in the beautiful, quiet rural setting that we were looking for and we had a good stay. The cottage is in need of some updates (especially the bathroom and the mattress in the sunflower room), and it wasn't cleaned as thoroughly as I would have liked.

Perfect location but disappointed house.

  • 3 of 5

Such a beautiful place. My family enjoyed bay view, all day swimming, fishing and grilling.

Owner was very halpful during our stay but we had a few issues. House was not clean and bad smell, lots dead bugs on the floor. I couldn't have relax time because I have to clean bathroom and kitchen. I don't want to do complain but I just want to know that why charge for cleaning fee when I booked.

That place...I want to return back on next vacation but it's not this house.

Wonderful relaxing place

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 3 nights with 2 young children and we loved it. My husband goes fishing early in the morning, caught and released a dozen of sting rays. Water is shallow but crystal clear during midday. The children spent like 10 hours a days playing. Couldn't have asked for a more relaxing vacation. Would definitely come back.
