the view was great. Also loved the skylight in the master bedroom. It let the full moon shine in. The location was nice for our day trips and the place was comfortable and relaxing.
My stay at "The Orchard Cottage" was magical. The views of the marsh and wet lands is breath taking! The cottage is charming with all of its' old history. It is nicely furnished. We had a wonderful time and plan to rent again next summer.
We enjoyed the sun-drenched deck, thanks to wonderful weather and the owners were very cordial. The cottage was clean, but there was no attention to details such as no working smoke detectors, only child-size coat hangers, stained towels (some thread bare), and no window shades in most bedrooms. The description gave no indication that the cottage was over 150 years old, but the bathroom tub and sinks, with their stains and a calcified faucet, gave testament to it's age. The approach to the cottage and parking of cars required much ingenuity and was difficult for one of us requiring a cane. We did enjoy the Apple Orchard and all it's delights, and eating at the Village, Periwinkles, and Woodman's and visiting surrounding towns.
This property is very historical. It has a low ceiling and is very bright and sunny inside. The bedrooms and bathroom situation is a little tricky. The one bath on the bottom floor is in the master bedroom, and is shared by the bedroom in the back of the house. The upstairs has a loft type bedroom up very steep stairs and there is no shower. We had our parents stay downstairs and put the rest of the family upstairs. The owner is really nice and is very close by.
The property is up a very steep hill. We loved the town of Ipswich, the apple winery close by - we enjoyed a wonderful apple pie from there! There is no air conditioning, so it can get a little warm. It met our needs being that we wanted our whole family to be together during our sons wedding.
