Enjoy nature's beauty and peace in this private waterfront cottage. The cottage sleeps two. Guests have use of our private pier (MLW 5 ft.) and solar heated swimming pool. The cottage is a perfect place to get away from it all, celebrate a special occasion, or visit the many close by historical sites and local wineries. Please note our WiFi is available near the pool and parking area., but not the cottage. We are firm about NO SMOKING. My home is about 700ft from the cottage.
“This is really an excellent getaway. As the other reviews said, the pictures don't do it justice. We were looking for a place to unplug and unwind. This was definitely it. Katherine was a fantastic host. From the moment we arrived, she made sure we knew our way around and had everything we needed. The cottage itself is small, which we expected from the photos. It was actually very cozy. It sits feet from the water. There isn't an inch of it where you don't have a great water view (outside of the bathroom). It sits tucked by the water on the larger property of the host. The dock and pool are both easily accessible, each about 50 yards from the cottage. You could fish from the shore or the dock and there were crab pots on the dock we could have used (we did not). There was a rowboat and a couple kayaks for our use as well. We took the kayaks out quite a few times and had a GREAT time. The 7am Kayak trip was breathtaking ... so peaceful and serene. We took a swim in the pool a couple of times a day as well. The pool looks straight out to the dock and water. We also took a daily trip to feed the goats and see the chickens, which were both unique experiences. We arrived in the middle of COVID, so we didn't make plans to sight see, only to stay away from people. We brought our own food, most of which fit in the dorm sized refrigerator. Katherine offered space in her freezer in the main house as well. We ate all our meals on the site, grilling each night on the nice sized and well maintained propane grill. We had our choice of eating inside, on the screened in front porch, the table on the connecting patio, or out the dock at an umbrella covered picnic table. Wi-fi was not available in the cabin, but was available around the pool, AT&T and Verizon service were spotty but available across most of the property (but only a bar or two). Verizon was the slightly better of the two. When we arrived, we were worried we would run out of things to do and get bored. When we left, we were disappointed we weren't staying for more time. My wife and I both highly recommend this for a quiet getaway or to reconnect with nature and each other. There is certainly no shortage of relaxation here. As I've seen others say, it truly is a little slice of heaven.”

“Mad Calf Cottage is perfection! Lara and David are wonderful, thoughtful hosts. We spent the weekend there for my 40th birthday and it was so lovely. The cottage is exactly as pictured. It was stylish yet homey, comfortable, exceptionally clean and well appointed. It is clear that Lara and David took great care in not only decorating but also in the special touches throughout. Knowing it was my birthday, they left a bottle of prosecco on ice (in addition to snacks and chocolates) for us to enjoy upon our arrival which was a delightful surprise. Lara gave me detailed information on the area and advice on restaurants. Taking her up on her suggestion, we ate at Adrift on Friday night. It was so good! But the show stopper was our dinner at the Hope and Glory Inn. Delicious is an insufficient descriptor. It was a meal I will not soon forget! There's nothing like having a cozy place to relax after we went on our adventures in the area and Mad Calf Cottage was exactly what we needed. It couldn't have been better. We hope to be back soon!”

“Michelle is a spectacular host! She happily accommodates me when I had a sudden flight change and she even gave me a curiosity call when some thunderstorms came along to be careful if I planned to drive over the Morris Bridge. She is an excellent host! As for the place, it is a perfect "rivah" getaway. Everything you need and fun pieces of history all around. I enjoyed using the paddleboard to go out to the white sand island which is absolutely beautiful. I also enjoyed runs down to Wind Mill point. The entire area is very beautiful and peaceful with incredible sunsets. I highly recommend staying!”
