Looked exactly as pictured. Owners were very nice and accommodating. They have thought of everything you will need for your stay, like being at home. A great use of space and tastefully decorated. The bed was very comfortable. Only a short walk to the water. You will not be disappointed.

This adorable little 'cottage' is beautifully decorated and appointed. You feel like you're at home without the work of being home! Each room is so pleasing and comfortable. Francie and Bob have thought of everything that you could need or want. Walking distance to the little downtown area, restaurants, beach, harbor. Loved it!

We loved our stay in the cottage. Everything was perfect, from the linens on the beds, stocked mini frig, selection of teas and coffee ect. Sooo much nicer than staying in a hotel room, everything was so cozy and we loved the decor. Great location, close enough to Boston, but also great seaside town.And walking distance to town. We hope to bring our other son on our next trip. And Francie was just lovely , and great hostess, checked on us to make sure we had everything we needed, and had some great recommendations on sightseeing and dining .Overall just an awesome experience!
Thanks Francie and Bob!

Sharon and family,

Thank you for that splendid review! We so enjoyed having you with us -- and enjoyed how much pleasure you took in our little town and in your visits to Boston. So great when guests take full advantage like this. But there's more to see and do. Please come back soon!

We were greeted with smiles after a long drive. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The Sweet was wonderfully appointed, It had everything one would want / need. Super Clean, bright and wonderfully decorated! They really paid attention to the details which made our stay outstanding. The location was great, an easy walk to town and to the water as well.

Everything about our stay was PERFECT! The entrance through the well-kept hydrangea garden, a card from the innkeepers welcoming us, and the comfortable, tastefully decorated guest house made for a relaxing weekend get away. The most comfortable bed ever and quietness made for a perfect night's sleep. I only wish we could have stayed longer.
