A look at their Web site will give you the idea best. These old NCO's married quarters are part of an old army base that operated a huge gun battery on the waterfront. The houses are spotless with large kitchens and fine old porches for sitting out and enjoying the view and plentiful wildlife in the evening. Rabbits and deer roam the property, birds abound, and a long, mainly stony beach is just a short walk away through the woods. A great place for family reunions and holidays, or a quiet getaway in the off season.
A bit pricey, but given the surroundings and quality of the houses, it was worth it. The office and maintenance staff were exceptionally friendly and knowledgable about the history.
The beds were a tad uncomfortable for some reason despite thick mattresses, but we may well return for a longer stay.
