5/5 Excellent

good location, great nearby amenities
Great location, on a main road, beautiful building and convenient and great breakfast option across the street! will definitely stay again.

4/5 Good

Great stay
See review of the main house which encompassed the cottage as well. The cottage met all of our needs.

5/5 Excellent

Location was perfect
Great location right on the hike trail and walking distance to the parking lot to catch the bus to the ferry to Martha’s vinyard. House was very clean and cozy. We were able to do some laundry and get takeout and eat in one night. Def would recommend this place!!

5/5 Excellent

Accommodating is an understatement!
We were excited to get to the Cape and start our adventure. In fact, we were so excited that we arrived a few hours early. Jeanette did everything in her power to get us into the cottage early and we greatly appreciated that. We were interested in getting a reservation but weren't sure where. Jeanette not only gave us a great selection but hoped on the phone and reserved us a table. There were six of us and there are two rooms, each with a queen bed. I had one of the rooms with a bed and personally slept like a baby. One couple had the fold out couch and they still slept fine. The one thing I would say was that it was a hot day and there was no A/C in the living room/couch area, but we left the door open to adjacent room so the A/C from our room could filter in and it was fine. The cottage also has a private fire pit and a quaint gift shop, we thoroughly enjoyed both. Parking can get a little packed so make sure to get your spot early. Overall, we had a great time, really appreciated the hospitality and will definitely be coming back.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely Cape Cod destination
Super cute, clean and cozy cottage. It was very convenient having the bike trail in our backyard. The kids enjoyed making S’mores by the fire pit. The beaches were within a quick drive or bike ride. Jeanette was very helpful and responsive to our questions and provided excellent restaurant recommendations. Cozy but the accommodations served our family of four well. Great vacation!
