      Excellent place for a weekend get away

      Bill was an excellent host with this property. Highly recommend checking this place out. Walk in you have the small cozy cabin feeling with fresh scent of fresh wood. The muffler light was a great addition above the table


        Rustic cabin. Perfect location.

        Cute little cabin. Rustic it is. I don’t mind rustic however, there’s a difference between rustic and dirty. My first hint should have been the bobby pins and coins left on the bedside tables. Maybe it wasn’t cleaned properly before I arrived. The shower didn’t drain very fast so my feet would become covered in the water and I was concerned it would overflow. The towels were unusable due to the extremely strong odor of must & mildew. I was lucky that I had family close by so I could borrow what I needed. There were a lot of bugs despite no food being in the cabin. It was rustic so I guess that is to be expected. The WiFi worked great. The cable TV did not work except for one Boston channel and 4 shopping channels. I was able to get Boston news but not the local news. I couldn’t even watch the Red Sox game! The owner said he would get it fixed but as the week went on it was never fixed. Again, not a big deal for me but something to consider if TV is important. The location was perfect for me. The town beach is a short walk from the cabin.

        4/5 Good

          Just the right size for two of us! Very cozy and cabin like!

          My boyfriend and I were pleased with the location and comfort of the tool shed. We loved our stay and would definitely consider this rental for future trips.
