Relaxing retreat

5 of 5
We found the cottage very comfortable and cozy. It is very modern and well maintained. Kitchen and bathroom are well stocked. The air-conditioning was a bonus, as the weather was very warm. The yard has a lovely seating area by the outdoor fire place. We also enjoyed sitting by the pond watching the sunset. The location of the cottage is ideal for visiting Cape Cod, Southern Massettusetts and Rhode Island. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and plan another visit to this lovely cottage in the near future.
