Who books a cottage in December? We are glad we did. Watched the 34 boats leave Dumping Day, enjoyed ocean, the deer, and of course the same day lobster. This was an awesome vacation. So quiet and relaxing here. Our 4th visit but first not in the summer months. I would highly recommend especially if lobster fishing is of interest.
If you are looking for peace and quiet this is the place to be. We rented a cottage for five days. We saw a deer family on the grounds and sometimes there was a playful seal in the water in front of our cottage. The kitchen was well equipped, pots and pans were pristine. Very good laundry facilities. Lovely deck. I felt at home in a home away from home. I can recommend this place wholeheartedly.
Our family rented two cottages for a family time. Cottages are lovely,clean, great jacuzzi tub, lots of cooking utensils. Cottages are on a rocky shoreline.not suitable for swimming. Ignomar beach is about a 15 min walk on the road then another 15 min walk down a trail to a lovely sandy beach. Unfortunately when we were there it was cool and foggy. A drive to nearby Shelburne is about 30 minutes, it was sunny and hot. Cottages were very quiet, no parties when we were there. Big fire pit, but so many mosquitoes and fog, we didn’t have a fire. I doubt we would stay there again, too far to Shelburne, too far to beaches, too foggy and cool.
I enjoyed the quiet of the area and the cottage (#7) was set a bit back from the rest which i was ok with, The cottage was clean and the bed was comfy and firm. A few issues that should be looked at. The door had a deadbolt on it however it did not line up with the door frame so it did not work. As a woman there by herself, I felt security could have been better. If nothing else put a chain lock on the door. Another rather important issue, no place to hang clothes. There were 2 hooks in hte bedroom and one hanger. If you came in from the rain with a wet jacket there was no place to hang it at the back door.. a few hanging pegs there would be handy. There is plenty of room in the bedroom for a standalone wardrobe but nothing but a small dresser was provided. I like to hang things to get rid of wrinkles and not live out of a suitcase but there were no options here. Also the bathroom had no place to put even a toothbrush. Please put some shelves up. People have toiletries and i personally don't like them sitting on the back of the toilet. And i did not appreciate the cigarette butt bucket right outside my door that still had butts in it. Nice place but needs some additional work.…
Cottages are clean and very nice hot tub in master bedroom. The cottage has everything you need for cooking your meals and also has gas barbeque .We will be back next summer when weather is warmer. Weather was cold and windy during our stay.
