Perfect Place for Family Celebration/Vacation

5 of 5
We have just spent a wonderful week at Captain's Cottage celebrating our 5oth Anniversary with our family, which included 6 adults and 4 grandchildren ages 7-16.The house is warm and inviting with lots of interesting art and antiques to look at.Eveyone from age 7 to 73 found a book to read from your extensive collection.The downstairs game room was a perfect diversion for teenagers during the adult cocktail hour. The eating facilities were very good with room on the kitchen island to do a buffet for a casual meal.The 3 mile and 4 mile connecting running /bike routes from the house was great for our exercise enthusiasts.Although the water was too cold for swimming, the dock was a great place to relax and try our luck at fishing. Dusk kayak trips were beautiful and we saw quite a few seals. We practically lived on the screened deck enjoying the view at all hours. Marianne was helpful with information and so pleasant. It was a wonderful vacation and the cottage was absolutely perfect. I would enthusiastically recommend Captain's Cottage to anyone.
