We stayed at the North Cottage for a Sunday and Monday night in December. Everything about the check in process was really lovely and easy. I did very little research for the trip- but liked the very hands-off process of getting us into our cottage where we could set up and throw on bathing suits and check out the beach. Which was absolutely gorgeous! Plenty of kayaks, paddleboards and chairs that are just there for the taking ("Just grab one and put it back on the beach afterwards"). Really ideal peaceful setting, which is why there was a professional photo shoot there. According to the hotel literature this happens often- in order to keep costs for the cottages lower. There was a pretty decent sized professional children's wear shoot (equipment, people) happening but the people were very sweet & respectful and their equipment didn't ruin our time- it's a pretty decent sized private beach. We just sat pretty far from them when we were vegging out and were more than fine. Our cottage was very nice with a decent kitchen and living room and tiny bathroom- chill and clean lodging with a nice balcony. We also made it to the VERY quiet pool and tennis court which was in very nice shape (they gave us balls and racquets). Stay here. Wish we could have been there longer. Will definitely be back.
Tips: Housekeeping is not automatic- do request it each day as needed. Stock your fridge with lots of fruits and drinks. Go out on the dock to the hammock at night and sway under the stars.
