Cute Nautical Cottage

February 7, 2015

This nautically themed cottage was clean and comfy. It was very well stocked. We are a retired professional couple, visiting the area from Oregon, and stayed 4 nights, (Jan. 2015), prior to our cruise. We shopped at Whole Foods and cooked our breakfasts in. Did barbeque some meals, but were gone most days..The BBQ is large and works well. Not a walking area but convenient by car to many sights.. The cottage is right on the water, so there's a light scent of must as windows are secure and do not open. We kept the doors open for ventilation each morning and that helped. Otherwise it's a perfect little get a way in a great spot. It's very well equipped for long stays. The washer and dryer let us start our next leg all fresh and clean. The patio has ample furniture and great views.. I have mold and food sensitivities, so being able to make my own breakfast is important to me.. My husband is not as sensitive as I am, and he was not affected. I think that most people would not be, either. But I'm mentioning it in case you are also sensitive, and need medication.. Wendy was very accommodating and helpful, and we certainly enjoyed our stay. I'd certainly recommend it!

Lovely Cottage on the canal.

January 24, 2015

My husband and I spent six wonderful days at this lovely cottage with a beautiful deck to sit on and watch the boats go by. The house was immaculate inside and had all we needed for our stay. We will definately be spending time there again. The owner was also very helpful and made our stay well worth the long drive from Canada.

Big Bang for your Buck!

March 7, 2014

Clean and very well equipped (especially kitchen & grills), this newly remodeled cottage had everything we needed - close to all we wanted to do; great privacy; plus we enjoyed the boat traffic on the canal. Plans are in the works for us to return next winter!

Great time

We had a nice time. The big deck is just great to be on and watch all the boats go down. This is the third time we stayed there. We have enjoyed all three times

Ships Ahoy !

March 3, 2013

This place was GREAT fun ! - It's small but the feeling is you're at home not at some vacation spot. Living on the water watching all the boats go by keeps you engaged with the local enviroment. The had a yardservice show up one morning early and this is the only suggestion - "they need to clean up the landscaping - too much dry dead foliage laying around = other than that - HAVE FUN !

first time experience

February 22, 2011

For an elderly couple,this place is ideal. Hot tub was mostly appreciated. This cottage is not far away from anything, yet all stores are not too far away. We loved this place. Will go back another time.

comfy house

May 11, 2009

Pluses: cozy, clean house right on the canal, great for hanging out on the deck and having a BBQ. Owners are helpful. Very little airport noise even though it's very close to the airport. Minuses: off the beaten path, hard to get to without a car.
