A group of friends and I stayed at the Water’s Edge Cottage in May of 2015. The owners as well as the property manager were extremely prompt, helpful and friendly. Dealing with them was a pleasure. The cottage itself is beautiful. It has large windows that look out into the bay, a spacious and comfortable living area and many bedrooms. All 10 of us were able to stay in the cottage without it feeling crowded in the least. There was also a boat the we were given permission to use. I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone looking to get away for a nice and relaxing vacation with family or friends. I.J.


Our vacation at the cottage was superb! Nice location, place is huge and we certainly had a fun time! The children enjoyed fishing and overall our stay was fantastic and couldn’t ask for more!


We loved staying at the Water’s Edge!  It is a beautiful cottage with a great water front, and it was perfect for our two small children.  There is lots of sand for them to play with and very shallow water to wade in.  The cottage itself is very roomy and comfortable, with lots of options for sleeping and lounging.  The wood burning stove is great in case it gets a bit chilly, and the fire-pit outside is perfect for a quiet, relaxing night under the stars.  We will definitely consider coming back again next year! -Mary S.
