Owner Supplied Testimonials
I just want to let you know that our family vacation was a real success this summer. It was great to go kayaking right off the shore and to picnic on the islands nearby. We especially enjoyed kayaking to the nature preserve on Carlisle Island, but also all the nature walks on the Darling Marine Center trails all around the cove. The house was perfect: it felt cozy and comfortable but also big enough to accommodate our 40th wedding anniversary celebration! Thanks for a great week.
