  • I love the place, very nice and reclusive place in the woods, lowkey and relaxing. A personal boardwalk to a very nice pretty bay. Ive been coming to this place with my family since i was 12 years old and i will come here forever also great fishing. Dave and Sue Marley are absolutely great people and always provide a great time. Cottages are well kept and nice furniture and appliances. I will come here till i no longer can.
  • Quaint, peaceful and fabulous. Extremely nice older cottages, very well maintained and supplied. We had the best time. I honestly can not say enough nice things. I can't wait to go back.
  • It was nice. Close to the bay for the best sunsets and the beach on the other side. Like the price. May 5
  • Nice people.....in the woods cabins ..kind of vibe.... Pets friendly...beautiful beaches, area is great.......fishing , scallops, boating , canoes, kayak kind of place.....peaceful place......the forgotten coast...please keep the secret.....
  • If you are seeking a way to save money and remain in a cottage...this is the way to go. Not what I expected, but met our need of a place to stay with our pets. Furniture, appliances, etc are all outdated. We enjoyed the location and the boardwalk to the small personal beach. Good for a FRUGAL budget, but don't go with high expectations on the facility.
