We very much enjoyed our super quiet stay. The house had what we needed for an entire week and we had plenty of options from the grill to the kitchen, or the fire pit to cook. There are deer that love to hang out up by the house,band tons of sea life down by the shore to explore during different tides... Even seals and sea otters! We had access to kayaks and canoes, vehicle was a wonderful option for exploring the shore. Bill was very responsive if there was a question. This place was the perfect quite space for getting away from the city.

We had a wonderful time. The place was warm and inviting. We harvested a ton of fresh huge oysters and had a feast. It was fabulous.
*This rental says sleeps 8 but was not clear about two persons having to sleep on an air mattress provided. It was comfortable and worked well though.
The fridge water dispenser was leaking badly but owner contacted us immediately so we were able to do stop the leak and enjoy the stay.
You can harvest mega oysters (and maybe clams) right down in front of the property. That was a blast. Finding a place to clean and remove them was a bit hard. You are not allowed to bring harvested seafood inside the home to clean or cook it. If not allowed to clean inside, you should have a place set up for that. We were only allowed to boil the seafood in a pot over a campfire pit. The pot was missing.
The place has major maintenance issues that should be addressed. The outside of the property on one side has a lot of rotted or moldy wood so it is not as inviting as the picture when you first drive up.
Between showers we had to wait to get hot water running again so turn up the temp on water heater.
The back grill was filthy so we did not use that.
The wood stove is not in working order. We started a fire in it and when trying to close it we found that the air intake lever was frozen and would not move, so if we closed it, the house filled up with smoke real fast. So we just had to put it out or leave doors open.
The furnace has a maximum of 72 degrees and never actually heated the whole house at all. We had to keep a fire going to stay warm in fireplace. A working wood stove would have been nice. There is ample firewood on site but it is all wet. So bring lots of wood to start and keep fires going.
We wanted to boil water for pasta and it never boiled until we put a lid on the pot. 20 mins. We also had a hard time getting oil hot enough to fry something. The stove is old and does not work well. It should be replaced.
I would stay here again if maintenance issues are addressed. The owner was great to work with and VERY responsive.
One last note: we stay in a lot of these. When trying to remember what the instructions were to cook food, use firewood or any other issues, we had to go back thru emails from owner and website to search for info.
A great way to simply that process is to simply have a notebook with ALL instructions readily available onsite.

Our family of 5 really enjoyed staying in this house. It took full advantage of its waterfront position with huge windows on the mail floor and in the upper floor bedroom so there were lots of areas where you can watch the water while lying in the master bedroom, eating at the table, etc, and the house has lots of natural light. The rear-facing sunroom adds to the open feel. The property is private and gives access to waterfront and woodsy strolls as indicated in the listing. The kitchen has the usual rental-house supplies and there's enough couches and comfy chairs to accommodate the group. House wifi is good. When the furnace acted up on us the owner was helpful and responsive. We found it a very comfortable place to hang out and relax and I'd like to stay there again some time. The one critique I'd note is that although it shows on VRBO as a four bedroom house, it is actually a three bedroom house with an available queen size air mattress, so although it does have four beds, the fourth one is not going to be in its own room with a door that can shut - the choices are either the office area outside the master bedroom (an open loft) or the sunroom (a nice room but open to the main living area). It worked for my college-age daughter but it was clearly the inferior option compared to the actual bedrooms.

What a delightful place - both the house and the location. View from enormous living room windows is incredible. House is very well supplied with essentials and very comfortable. Highly recommend staying here.

Although we spent most of our time at the Ridge Motorsports Park, we enjoy coming back to The Getaway in the evenings. Cooking dinner is easy with a well-stocked kitchen, and the surroundings are incredibly quiet so we can get a good night's rest. We'll be back.

Excellent! We saw so much wildlife - deer, bats, fish, crabs, and something doglike that was either a young coyote or a fox. There was a lot of evidence of clams under the sand, but we don't like shellfish so we didn't disturb any.
We loved the beach and kayaking. If you plan to go out on the water, make sure you look up the tide tables. The change in water level is impressive!
If you have kids under 5ish... It's a beautiful house with delicate collectible cars and coral on the shelves - best for kids who are old enough to understand look-but-don't-touch, otherwise it will take some effort to move everything to safety and replace them before leaving. We have a 5 year old and didn't need to shift anything, but be prepared for that depending on your kid's personality.
The listing is slightly unclear about number of bedrooms - there are 3 bedrooms and a full size air mattress in a closet.
The internet was good - fast enough for my kid to do his online science camp.
Very minor negative: the driveway was a little tricky for our small compact car - steep gravel. Didn't get stuck, just scary the first time. Try not to arrive after dark the first time and you'll be fine.
Overall, spectacular. Thank you for letting us stay.
