“If you are looking for a private retreat with a babbling brook, this is the place! Connie has created both indoor and outdoor spaces that are perfect for relaxation. The babbling brook in the back is enjoyed morning, noon, and night - by day the gardens delight, and by night the outdoor lighting makes for a wonderful warm ambience. We were greeted with music playing and a surprise stocked refrigerator with cold drinks. The cottage is beautifully appointed and very comfortable. Everything was very clean and seemed to be prepared with an extra touch of hospitality. Take the time to really enjoy the gardens, there are so many delights hidden within! The kitchen is well appointed. We really enjoyed our stay and went bicycling around the area every day.”

“I can’t say enough about Christine and Greg’s place. It was beyond perfect and just what we needed for a nice, cozy getaway!!! The house was immaculate, SPOTLESS from top to bottom (no exaggeration). The modern vibes of the home were truly amazing, along with the gorgeous back yard that makes you feel secluded and right at home at the same time! We spent most of the time on the back porch, taking in the nature around us and just relaxing. Christine and Greg were amazing hosts, very friendly and easy to communicate with. They checked in with us to make sure we needed anything and gave us plenty of suggestions on places to go around the area. They made our stay one to remember and you can truly tell how much thought they put into everything! And we can’t forget about their sweet dogs, Joe and Roo, who visited us in the back yard!!! We had an amazing time and wish we could have stayed longer, but will absolutely be back! If you’re looking for a getaway with nature to refresh and recharge, this is the place.”
A charming original turn of the century cottage that was recently renovated. One main room plus a full bathroom and Ikea kitchen. It includes a back porch that gets a perfect amount of late afternoon sun. The cottage has electric baseboard heat for cool Fall nights. We are located in Indian Cove Beach Association with a two block walk to the beach. You are welcome to enjoy our kayaks, bikes to tour the area and a fire pit.
“The cottage was perfectly adorable. Everything about it exceeded our expectations, and we definitely plan to head back next year to experience even more of Guilford. The cottage was clean, exceptionally organized in terms of amenities (including a binder that laid out details of the rental as well as all the area had to offer)—with a hand-drawn map of the vicinity so we’d know where to go to access the local options—and every aspect of communication was top-notch. The only hesitation we have in recommending the place is that we don’t want everyone to know how completely perfect our experience was, because we absolutely plan to rent again and want to make sure there’s some availability!”
