We rented the Inlet Cottage behind the main house for a week. It's a perfect little getaway from home. The eat in kitchen had everything we needed (except the food, which he brought). The bathroom has a washer and dryer which was great to have on hand so we didn't have to worry about dirty laundry or getting to a laundramat. There are outdoor showers with hot and cold water which was great for showering off the sand when returning from a day at the beach, with tracking it into the house or getting it in the bathroom. The bedroom is upstairs with a king size bed and a walk out to a deck. While there isn't much to see from the deck but the back of the main house and yard, it was nice to have to enjoy a cup of morning coffee or admire the full moon enjoying a glass of wine. The bathroom shower is a little small (and I'm petite), but not a problem. There is a pull out sofabed in the living room if you had overnight guests. As it is a summer cottage, you need to bring your own sheets and towels, but that is fine. Pillows, blankets, comforter are provided. Upon arriving, it was very clean. During our stay, we treated it like we would our own home and kept up with cleaning and anything we used up, we replenished (such as toilet paper, paper towels, dish or laundry detergent) for the next tenants. I don't know if that's customary, but we did it anyway, as well as washing dishtowels, bath mat and tablecloth that were provided. We enjoyed out stay immensely and had no problems, no complaints. There are outdoor grills and eating areas which we were permitted to use and there were beach chairs and badges which were also provided and appreciated. We met Sally during out weeklong stay twice and she was friendly and personable. We were set up well and didn't have to ask anything of her, but I'm fairly confident that if we needed anything, she would have accommodated us. There was a cold front that came in towards the end of our week and Sally told us where the heaters could be located if needed, but they weren't. We will definitely come back again next year and I look forward to it. If we can get the interest and cooperation of extended family, we would like to rent out the main house for a reunion in the future. The location is perfect, two blocks from the ocean and only several blocks walking distance to almost anything in town, including Washington Mall, plenty of restaurants, show houses/mansion tours, etc. We didn't want to leave.
