Staying at this cottage during the first week in August was wonderful! As our family has come to the Cape for many, many years, and as we have owned and stayed in numerous houses there, it was quite a nice surprise to discover this cozy yet adequately spacious gem of a home. While living for a week in this cottage that has been wonderfully renovated while incorporating some original structural features, one could warmly feel the sense of New England history. It was very interestingly decorated with many unique and seafaring items placed throughout. Renters will want to take care not to disturb them, as many are placed within reach of children. While spending a good amount of time in the living room, the furniture was very comfortable, and the TV and internet worked quite well. When days were very warm, air conditioning was briefly used. However, most often, opened screened doors and a living room ceiling fan allowed for a nice cross breeze downstairs while ceiling fans provided comfortable airflow upstairs, as evenings were fairly cool. Other renters might prefer raising a few of the many well placed windows on either floor when temperatures rise. The kitchen was very well equipped with microwave, stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, cookware, utensils, etc. A washing machine and dryer also were quite convenient on the first floor. Off of the kitchen in back was a small porch with a good size picnic table and grill for outdoor eating. A larger nicely furnished porch on the side of the cottage was a great place to relax in the beautiful environment. The surrounding homes, yards, trees and view of the water in the distance were very much enjoyed. Being located near the beach, a playground, convenience store, and the Holy Cow ice cream shop also was a plus. Most importantly, the owners were especially helpful and very interested in our having a great vacation in their home. They were extremely accommodating, conveniently available, and genuinely thoughtful of any needs or requests we might have had. How very wonderful it was to rent from them. We really look forward to returning next year and renting for two weeks. Our experience with the owners and their gem of a cottage was very, very special!
