Our family visited this cottage and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had a 3 y/o, 2 y/o, and a six month old and it accommodated us pretty well. The owner had a pack-n-play and high chair on site, which was convenient. Plus, the cottage was pretty kid-friendly (although, you'll want to make sure you bring some toys and entertainment). The owner always responded very quickly to any emails or phone calls. Pictures are very accurate. The inside has a great decor with updated countertops and appliances and nicely colored walls. Our only complaint was that there wasn't a ton of natural light. You get the best of both worlds here--you're very close to the beach (QUICK walk to the beach) but you're nestled in the woods, too. We saw plenty of deer, and even a wild turkey with nine baby turkeys (I'm sure they have a specific name). The backyard is so great--has some really cool topography and a nice fire pit (the owner provided us with a bundle of wood, which was great). The only drawback for us was crossing the street to the beach. The street was sometimes busy and people weren't great about stopping to let us pass. And with our three kids that was kind of tough at times. Always manageable, though, just a bit cumbersome. All in all, it was a great time. We loved it.
