“A classic cottage in a gorgeous spot - loved it!”

Five of us stayed in June 2015. This is a classic cottage with a wood stove, wood paneling, and simple but comfortable furnishings. There was patio furniture in the outdoor patio and two beds in the screened patio to enjoy the gorgeous view & sea breeze, especially in good weather. The nearby area has lots of birds (including bald eagles!) and there is a lovely beach right outside the cottage door. The kitchen was a bit tight with five of us, but it was well equipped and had numerous spices/herbs/seasonings and baking ingredients. All the other cabins we stayed in on our trip did not have anything aside from salt and pepper, so this was a treat! There is a wood fire stove located in the living area. Our hosts kindly had a fire going when we arrived, which was very welcoming. That made the cabin very cozy and so relaxing. The beds were made up but the master bedroom was also well stocked with extra blankets and sleeping bags to go around. There was an extra cot in one of the rooms which we brought out so one of us could sleep by the fire - such a treat. Firewood is stocked in the screened patio so the wood is always dry and you don’t even have to actually go outside to get it! Many board games are available to play - which is great because there is no wi-fi. The shower is great; it instantly responds to adjustments and stays consistent temperature. Our host was friendly and informative about the nearby area. Our stay was cold and rainy. It would have been an even more wonderful stay if the weather had cooperated!
