My husband and I rented Cottage 6 for two nights and were very disappointed. The cottage didn't come anywhere near meeting the description listed on the web site or the booklet we picked up at the Visitor Center. The so called "remodeling" was hard to find, perhaps they were talking about the ceiling and skylight. There basically was no bathroom, the toilet was in a closet (which was so small we had to leave the door open so our knees had enough space) the shower was across from it and the kitchen sink doubled as the bathroom sink. There was no water view as the brochure stated and the flooring was very old. Although it was fairly clean, I wiped up the counters and table and washed the dishes before using them.
There are many cottages to rent that look to be in much better settings and much better shape. I suggest looking at those before renting a cottage at New Harbor View.
