  • Relaxing family weekend


    Our stay at the Shore Cottage was everything we could have wanted and more. The home is beautifully appointed and impeccably maintained. Everything was fresh and clean and very comfortable. We enjoyed the amenities of the gazebo overlooking the water and our boys spent endless hours playing in the sand and water. Just a short car trip to restaurants and attractions, very manageable. The hostess, Marilyn, is very sweet and extremely helpful and accomodating. Can't beat coffee in the gazebo watching the sunrise. Will absolutely visit again!

  • Beach retreat


    We had a wonderful stay — The house was as advertised and we loved spending time on the sunroom, screen porch and of course the beach! We were surprised to see swans everyday on the water— it was very cool! The one downside was the lack of mixing bowl, but I improvised. We would definitely return!

  • What an amazing stay and beach home


    I would give this place a 50 star review if I could. This home is absolutely amazing. A few light housekeeping issues that was a possible overlook on the house keeping end. The home owner was absolutely amazing. This place felt so homey. Was so peaceful and serene. We enjoyed our 3 night, 4 day stay from start to finish. Found everything needed in the home and the home owner was so open to suggestions on a few missing items kitchen wise. Found everything in working order and beautifully decorated. Loved the fact it catered to the elderly and handicap. The ramps for our mother's wheelchair helped so much, they can be found in the shelf in the beach shed. All and all this place had everything we could imagine our vacation to be.. absolutely amazing and will book again and again!!

  • Awesome Getaway !!!


    This beach cottage is simply beautiful, the owner thought of every detail that would make the stay relaxing and enjoyable. The communication was very friendly and prompt, and the welcoming gifts were so kind and thoughtful. There are lots of places to eat near by, but trust me you will want to bring your own groceries. So that you will be able to truly relax and take in all the cottage has to offer.

    Like the private beach or enjoying a glass of wine or coffee on the deck, over looking the water or simply just rocking in the chairs, in the sun room .

    My family had an amazing time staying here,

    We will be back next summer.

    Mrs. J.
