    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6
    Winchester Cottage was built as a wedding gift in 1933. It now sits under the canopy of 2 old oaks, on our main street but several blocks away from the main intersection at the harbor. It has 3 bedrooms, one bath (between 2 bedrooms), and is fully furnished and supplied with bath and kitchen items. Compact yet roomy, doorways and walls have been widened and remodeled for openness and to create a light and airy feel.

    Construction is tongue-and-groove pine, used for floors, walls and ceilings. The house sits up 2 easy steps, so that it is well-ventilated underneath. The large, breezy front porch runs the full width of the house and can seat a crowd for relaxing reading or socializing. Screen doors fore and aft allow nice air circulation in the temperate months if you prefer fresh air instea...

    No additional fees except in the case of property damage. 6 guests is maximum allowed.

    'No Pets' really means 'No lap dogs, fleas, or incessantly barking dogs'. The floors are wood or tile, actually good for dogs. The furniture is not for dogs. So if you sleep with your little 'baby', that won't work -- thanks! :)

    Another note: the 'weekend night' rate shown above at $117 is in error. Day of week doesn't affect the rate. --We are trying to fix it.

Great time at the cootage, very quiet and clean. Would have liked to see the bear. The only down side was that the beds were small and hard. more

Winchester Cottage has everything you need in a vacation rental. Comfortably appointed, well-equipped and thoughtfully arranged, it is a perfect home away from home (and it accommodates dogs!). Unable to work the DVD player (no sound) but that is probably because of this reviewer's technical incompetence...the TV has Netflix and there is wifi so there no need to feel cut-off... more

Management response:

We appreciate thoughtful reviews, and this is one. Thanks. The front bedroom is closest to the street, and that must be considered. Bear in mind that a town of 800 or so can only have a fairly small amount of traffic-- under the worst conditions. There may be a wire loose to the DVD, we will check on that. And... more

House on inside is very nice. However, the outside looks run down. Houses near house also look run down and abandoned! The picture displayed must be from 20 years ago when house looked nice. Owners should post up to date picture of neighborhood also before people rent this place. more

Management response:

It seems that Winchester Cottage was not what the young couple with 2 small children thought it was. This, after years of photos and information on our website, and many favorable TripAdvisor reviews. Little ones need constant entertainment, not normally found in a 1933 cottage in an "old" neighborhood. Strolling our shops, harbor, beach, and forests--maybe not fun for the... more
