“Charming adorable cottage in great location!”

I spent a few days in this sweet little cottage which supplied everything needed for a wonderful get away with my 2 teenage granddaughters. I was looking for a place where I could spend quality time with the girls and also keep them active and interested! We were able to ride our bikes to the beach, walk to wonderful restaurants and go shopping in the quaint shoreline town of Madison. The girls even managed to read a book when we relaxed! Life is good! The cottage and it's owner were extremely accommodating and helpful in every way possible. Thank you Patti for sharing this special place where we spent quality family time together!

Dear Karin
What a pleasure it was sharing my cottage with you and your lovely granddaughters. You all were the perfect guests and I'm so glad you were able to enjoy not only the amenities of the cottage but also Madison and its beaches! Yes, reading a good book and biking are great pastimes for relaxing during vacation.
Sometimes you worry about teenagers but yours were delightful in everyway!
We certainly hope that you consider our cottage a home away from home and will return again,!

“Great place for a relaxing get away”

Stayed 2 weeks at this immaculate cozy cottage. Quiet location and situated close to beach and hiking trails. Great place for morning walks on the beach and solitude if you want it.
There is plenty of other activities to enjoy in this area. Cottage has everything you could possibly need to make your stay complete and hostess is very accessible for all your needs and plenty of local info. Dunkin donuts and Starbucks are within walking distance if you're like me and crave your fix!(even though there is a Keurig coffee machine right in the cottage along with a few days coffee and tea supplied.)
Train station in town can bring you right into the city .
Loved my stay and will be back!
Thought I share a sunset from an evening walk.

“Great Summer Getaway”

person found this review helpful

This quaint, comfortable cottage is perfect for the couple who want to get away from the fast pace of daily life and just relax and enjoy the peacefulness of the area, with a beach within walking distance. It is well-kept, clean, and delightfully decorated. The owners were kind and helpful. The nearby Thimble Islands cruise and Gillette Castle are two adventures you won't want to miss.

“Relaxing and fun”
Reviewed 31 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

person found this review helpful

We had a wonderful time at this cottage. The owners are friendly, helpful and accessible.The cottage is tastefully and charmingly decorated, giving you a sense of beauty, peace and relaxation. Skylights make it light and bright. The cottage is suitable for 2 in the bedroom and another one or two on the futon in the living area. It is located within a quiet community of cabins but is secluded with a back deck that backs up to a pretty, private wooded area. The cottage also has a front porch. In the back there is an outdoor hot/cold shower to wash after a day at the beach. The cottage also has AC and complete kitchen. The surrounding neighborhood roads are little traveled and suitable for walking, running or biking. Hammonassett State park, a lovely two mile family beach is 1 mile away. Within a short walk from the cottage is a top notch bagel bakery (warm and delicious in the morning, try the bacon-jalapeno), three seafood- plus restaurants of different styles, a pizza place, an ice cream stand, and a Vietnamese restaurant. The town of Madison is lovely as are nearby towns of Clinton and Guilford. There are also other things to do in the area such as boat rides, kayaking, fishing, bike tours and more but we were happy to soak up the sun and swim at the beach for 5 glorious days!
