"My family home, The Narrows Cottage, is lovingly kept up, energetically cleared and tastefully decorated. Built on old Indian Grounds, closer to the water than is now allowed, The Narrows Cottage has perfect energy for healing, relaxing, writing, resting and going inward. Beds are good, but the view is spectacular! The three level cottage, a 180 year old saltbox, is the perfect vacation spot & I am happy to share this little piece of heaven with you."

My husband and I stayed 6 weeks for our summer sabbatical. Such peace and quiet helped our writing projects and our dog loved it! What a relief from city life and the heat of Texas!
