After reading reviews and seeing pictures on-line, we expected wonderful, but the house, the kitchen, as well as the view exceeded our expectations. The layout could not have been more perfect for our family - my husband and myself, our 3 daughters and their spouses and 2 grand babies. There was nothing lacking. The kitchen is better equipped than my kitchen at home!
The plan had been to take turns going out to eat a couple of nights, leaving someone back at the house with the babies, but in the end, we all enjoyed cooking together and the sunsets so much that every time the conversation turned to choosing a restaurant, it quickly changed back to what we should cook that night instead.
We unanimously agreed that this was, by far, the best family vacation we have ever had. There was space for everyone - inside and out. One of our sons-in-law brought his kayak and we all took turns learning how and enjoying kayaking. Our bike trip to Woods Hole was a great mid-week change of pace, but the pace itself is what made the week so special. With 4 bathrooms and a very spacious kitchen, there was never a sense of urgency, never a sense that we were in someone's way. And I can't recall seeing the two-year-old happier than she was this week surrounded by grandparents, aunties and uncles, the bay, the seashells, the beach....pure heaven.
We are already looking forward to next summer in hopes of being able to rent this magical place again!
