    We had a delightful stay at a wonderful vacation retreat. We chose it because it allowed pets, but enjoyed it because it was a clean, nicely furnished, and well-appointed place on the water. Loved it!

  • Quiet and peaceful!


    Great rental if you are looking for quiet and peaceful. Great yard and on water to fish or kayak. If you are looking site see all the time expect to travel. Have to travel 15+ just to store and not much to do less than 45 min away.

  • Everything and then some


    Overall our experience was excellent. The house was very clean and the homeowner went above and beyond to make us feel welcome, down to coffee and bathroom condiments. The kids had a wonderful time shrimping, crabbing, and fishing off the dock, which kept them occupied for hours. Would definitely stay here again if we return to the area.

  • Relaxing get away


    We loved every bit of our stay. The house was very clean and well stocked. The grill and the fire pit were very nice and we enjoyed s’mores and grilling. The kayaks were in good condition and easy to launch. My daughter loved taking them out and exploring. We had a funny moment where our dog jumped in the water and swam to her. There was a welcome book which really helped us find the ferry’s and the times to explore the area. Overall we had a wonderful time and hope to come back again one day soon.

  • A wonderful place to stay and enjoy the family!


    We had a fabulous time at this quiet, peaceful home by the water. The owners were extremely helpful and very quick to respond to the few questions we had. We greatly enjoyed this relaxing home, both inside and outside, to enjoy precious time with family. The ramp came in very handy and was more than adequate to our needs. We especially enjoyed fishing and crabbing at the dock and watching the various birds and wildlife. We so enjoyed our time and will most definitely come again.
