    Beyond a five star stay

    I wish I could give more than 5 stars. This carriage house is beautiful. Dawn sure does a fabulous job!!! I felt like I was at a spa with all of the plush linens and the organic lotions etc. My two boys and I had everything we needed during our dinner three night stay at this extremely cozy place. Dawn even provided some delicious snacks as well as waters in the fridge. She helped us tremendously by recommending several places for us to visit including a very fun oyster festival. We thoroughly enjoyed the light house ferry tour and the cider mill. Thank you Dawn for an amazing stay filled with so many memories. Keep doing what you are doing. You are great at it!!! I cannot recommend this place enough. It was perfect.

        Piece of Heaven!

        Dawn and Tim were the perfect hosts! They were very responsive to questions that I had and honestly have thought of every detail to make for a comfortable stay. My husband and I were looking for a quiet weekend away and this location did not disappoint. The view from the windows are beautiful and the beach is breathtaking. I couldn't get enough of that beach, it was so relaxing, I could listen to the sound of waves all day long! We enjoyed quiet morning walks over to Ocean Beach and loved looking at all the beautiful homes along the way. I would recommend The Social restaurant in town for a delicious burger and beer. I would also recommend Fords and Captain Scotts for lobster! Yes, we got our fill of seafood. Thank you for the perfect weekend getaway, we hope to be back in the Spring!

        5/5 Excellent

          Wonderful spot by the Sound!

          A very comfortable and well-appointed apartment. Everything one needs for cooking in and relaxing. The beach across the street is wonderful for kids who can bury themselves in the sand, boogie board, swim, or look for sea-life. Short rides and walks to the various local attractions and restaurants. Dawn is very helpful with local attractions and things to do.
