We are a family of four with a 2 year old and an infant, so we were looking for a relaxing get-away, on the water, with enough space and privacy to accommodate our sometimes boisterous family. The Marion Cottage was the perfect choice and I'm so happy I found it! The water views could not be better. So peaceful and beautiful. Several mornings were spent on the deck, bundled baby on my lap and coffee in hand! I was in my happy place to say the least. There is an osprey nest in view that was fun to watch and a great learning experience for our toddler. One morning we watched a deer swim across the water and run up on our little beach! It was pretty amazing.
We had everything we needed to properly and safely care for our little ones, with a full kitchen, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and laundry. The washer and dryer worked great and having it right in the master bathroom made the chore a breeze. There are no stairs inside the house, which made it a safe option. We prepared several meals in the house and really made the cottage our home for the week.
The location is technically just before you reach Cape Cod, so it is perfect for making day trips. It is not really walkable to anywhere, but there are tons of options for drives to local beaches and towns. We ventured out to Boston to visit the aquarium, Woods Hole, Provincetown, and Plymouth. On days we stayed local we visited Silver Shell Beach which was perfect for us.
On top of that, Catherine's hospitality was exceptional. She and her husband Steve met us at the cottage to show us around and even had welcome gifts for us and the girls. They made everything very easy and comfortable. I would recommend this rental to anyone looking for a home away from home in a gorgeous waterfront setting.
