This was our third year at Cottage Grove, cottage #9, and our first stay in early June. It was AWESOME!!! Horseshoe crabs were at the end of their mating rituals at First Encounter Beach; and it was TOTALLY COOL to observe these dinosaur age critters doing what they do to keep the species viable!!!
We "suffered" a broken windshield in NJ on our way up; but the gentleman that came out to replace our windshield was a direct descendant of the Wampanaog Indians that met the first Pilgrims at First Encounter Beach!!!
. . . so when we're up next year, the Plimouth Plantation is on our list of things to do because our windshield tech stars in the movie as Chief Massasoit!!!
Cottage #9 is totally awesome with it's fully equipped kitchen . . . I LOVE to cook; and with all of the local seafood, we and our dogs ate WELL!
Yeah!!! Cottage Grove is pet friendly, too!!! I was TOTALLY embarrassed that my young male had a liquid accident on the floor of the cottage . . . he 's well trained and KNOWS BETTER! We cleaned up quickly and were lucky enough to find Jennifer on site with some Nature's Miracle cleaner . . .
Jennifer was really good about helping us through our embarrassing situation . . .
We REALLY appreciate that Cottage Grove is pet friendly and sincerely hope that we didn't do anything to change their minds . . .
At Cottage Grove, we get ALL of the perks of an efficiency . . . and all of the perks of a higher priced motel!!!
Our dogs are our kids . . . and this is the perfect spot for all of us!!! Close to the beaches and playing in the waves that we all enjoy . . . easy access to local seafood and a kitchen to cook it "My Way" . . . NEAT potters close by . . . and other craftspeople, too!!!
. . . even a "dedicated" Grateful Dead" shoppe and tie-dye apparel store in the nearby "Dennises" . . .
Most importantly, LOTS of dog-friendly beaches (check local regulations for restrictions) with LOTS of folks that are more than willing to pamper dogs with attention and affection!!!
We're from northeast Ohio; and we and ours simply CANNOT find a better, more friendly, more accomodating place to vacation and relax than Cottage Grove . . .
We'll be back here year after year for as long as our health holds up (we're 60 year old hippies, don'cha know?) . . . and for as long as our furry kids want to play in Ma Nature's grand swimming pool . . .
Cottage Grove offers contemporary amenities, such as WiFi and cable TV; but it also pays homage to the wonderful, turn of the century days on Cape Cod . . .
It just doesn't get any better than this!!!
