  • Overall a Great Place to Stay

    "Owners were very responsive: the microwave stopped functioning while we were there and one of the owners brought a new one the next day after confirming we didn't require it that night. There is a deck on the front of the house that overlooks the sound with no block in the view and a deck on the back of the house that overlooks the beach with no block in view. The staircases to both are sturdy with about 10 steps each. The front deck had the grill, which worked fine. The beach was covered in stones. They were smooth, but made flipflops of water shoes necessary. A 10-15 minute walk to where the river and ocean meet bring you to a much less rocky beach which was great for our 13 month old to play at. But with a little raking and you can make a tidy sand pit: the stones only seem to be about one layer deep before you find sand. The main level of the house is one long great room, the division of the room only made by the couches, which were dated and a worn but comfortable. There is a TV in the living room. Then there are 2 bedrooms, both with AC, with a bathroom inbetween. One room has a full sized bed with a closet full of childrens (and baby-appropriate) toys and board games and a tv. The other is 2 twins. The staircase upstairs is in the room with the twin beds. This wasn't too inconvenient for us. Upstairs is a large bathroom, 1 room with 2 twins, closet, dresser, a balcony that overlooks ocean, and 1 room with a king, large closet (fit 2 pack and plays), ac unit, dresser with tv, a balcony that overlooks the sound. All 3 rooms have skylights. The house was VERY liveable, but needs some TLC. The kitchen is quite the hodgepodge of tools, but everything we needed was there. The location was great. It was about a 45 minute drive into the city to the aquarium, 20 minutes to the grocery store, 25 minutes to a place with a target, walmart, etc. The mileage from point a to point b in the area doesn't reflect the travel time well: most of the roads are curvey and go through neighborhoods with the speed limit varying between 25 and 35 mph. We mostly spent our time at the house. We took 1 trip to the city and 1 trip to Plymoth for whale watching, which was prolific in whale sightings! There was 1 unseasonably hot day at 90 degrees, the day we arrived, but beyond that we had very little need of the ac units and enjoyed the ocean breese until our departure on June 5. 7 and a baby occupied the house very comfortably. We would be happy to return"

  • What a PERFECT weeks

    "This was even better than expected! The views are spectacular! The owners are available to answer any last minute questions and the house is so incredibly equipped! Plenty of kitchen/dining room items as well as more than enough sheets, towels, books, children's toys and games, televisions, DVD players, two different wireless servers. It was just fantastic and well worth the investment!"

  • Peaceful Oasis

    "The cottage was perfectly equipped and very comfortable but the environment is what makes this property amazing. Sweeping lawn down to the water's edge and though on bayside many nights fell asleep to the sound of waves. Long walks through the pine wood trials (with lots of bug spray!) also made this vacation memorable. The owners were exceptionally fair and kind. The caretakers, Harriet and MaryJane made us feel like family."

  • Wonderful Experience

    "We initially booked this as a home base while hitting Boston and points south. This home, however became more of the destination for us. We found ourselves reluctant to pull away from, everyday rearranging our itinerary to accommmodate for more time at the house. You will not be disappointed. Thank you William and Ellen, we had a wonderful time. There were some tears when we had to leave."
