NOTICE: This listing is missing some pix still as created it quickly due to a recent cancellation so look for more pix elsewhere. Yes, the price is very low but that's why SO many customers have come for years/decades/generations and why I have so few openings, ESPECIALLY during the mid-July to mid-August weeks when chances for a new customer are almost NONE, so PLEASE be aware of this before contacting me! Looking for a nice clean quiet cottage close to Nantucket Sound beaches? And one that you can afford on a tight budget with some money left for gas & dining?

Looking for a nice clean quiet cottage close to Nantucket Sound beaches? And one that you can afford on a tight budget with some money left for gas & dining? Well, then...Pleasant Forest Shores just may be the place for YOU! Here's a summary: This listing is for Cottage #4 - A two bedroom cottage with screen porch at rear. Has double bed in one bedroom and two twin beds in the other. Accommodates four people maximum. Total size is 678 sq ft. including 65 sq ft porch. Minimum stay: 5 nights but weekly Fri-Fri is the standard rental. --------------------------------- Stay once...you'll want to return for decades as some of our customers have done before! Here are the reasons why: The cottages are located on a quiet street in a well maintained natural scrub pine and oak setting of about 2 acres with less than 5 min walk to two town beaches... They are generously spaced for privacy with average of 50 feet between units and average 30 feet from driveway... Units are very spacious compared to other colonies in the area...about 550 sq ft (approx 28' x 20') for two bedroom unit not including the screened porches averaging 90 sq ft... The cottages are unique in the style and quality of construction...based on Swedish 'Stuga' style and design as my father (who built them) was a professional cabinet maker so woodworking details are superb... They are furnished in the style of the 1950-60's but many units have had some/all new bedding and/or refrigerators and/or carpets installed since 2002... They are kept in very clean condition...thanks to the non-smoking tenants who respect the work of my parents and is part of reason for the low rates...and I attempt to completely check all aspects at turnover time... But most of all, due to unique pricing structure, it's very affordable! Not like other high-priced low-quality ones! My mother believed in making it possible for everyone to enjoy a vacation, and I am trying to continue the tradition. Unit is priced based on TWO people with additional adults/children at a low ($6 or less) daily rate. This allows a couple to rent a larger unit, have guests for a night or two, and yet keep costs to a minimum. Discounts are given for additional weeks, varying from $5-$25 depending on unit and week number. Since a changeover is skipped, you get a break on rate! Other important details: All rentals are from Friday at 4:30 p.m. to Friday at 10:30 a.m. To keep cottages and grounds in better shape: NO pets and NO smoking! These cottages are from the 1950's so there are NO telephones, TV, or microwaves...you won't miss them! Things to know: There are no TV's, and no cable available but you can bring one to watch DVD's. You bring your own linens (sheets, towels, etc)...Blankets and pillows are provided...but many folks bring their favorite pillow. All cottages have gas wall heaters for those cool nights...(the Apartment has an electric space heater) Since these units do NOT have A/C, bring a fan if you think the breeze won't be enough to stay cool. Kitchens have gas stoves, refrigerators, cookware, dishes and utensils so just bring the food and drink! Access to owner's phone is available to make emergency/calling card/local calls if your cell phone fails or you don't have one. Owner's high-speed Net may be accessed via wi-fi upon request. All units have vacuums, broom, mops, brushes, etc...If you MUST have 'brand-X cleaner', bring or buy it. If you want to place to relax, stay here...If you want a place to party wildly, please look elsewhere, ok?More
