Great cottage, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at the cottage. The location is great, outdoors and inside very stylish and equipped with everything you can ask for.

We are a family of four (two small girls) and we all would love to come back.

Thanks for a great stay.

Amazing, unforgettable getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend the 'Sharlene' cottage (as well as the other properties offered by New England Cottages). The Sharlene cottage and the next door 'Viola' and 'Kaitlyn' cottages are very tastefully decorated and comfortable for a couple or family. They are truly what you imagine a beach cottage to be (charm of yester year), but with modern amenities and decor. The owners/hosts were very gracious. The location right on the beach is amazing. Loved waking up to the ocean view from the bedroom balcony. Kids loved the Hobbie Cat sailboat and swim platform. Front and back porches were fantastic for relaxing. Property had everything you would need including a stainless gas grill. Very convenient to local grocery stores, restaurants, Clinton Outlets, etc. Enjoyed a cappuccino and scone at the M. Sarba cafe and art gallery. Would love to come back to this property or other New England Cottages properties in the near future! So glad we found this cottage for a much needed family getaway. Although we were not far from home, it felt like we were truly 'away' on vacation.

Extremely enjoyable!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in the Sharlene cottage this past summer. We all had a very memorable experience. My children are 3 years old and they absolutely had a blast! The beach is so convienent, just walk out the back door and your there. I would highly reccomend a stay in any of the 3 cottages on this property. They are all well up to date and very clean! The only thing I would reccomend to the owner or see if its ok to bring a gas grill, I am just not a big charcoal fan. But other than that, the stay was magnificent. The area is chock full of activities for people of all ages wether it be dining, shopping, fishing etc.. Well worth it! Thanks Karl!!!!

Fall Stay

  • 4 of 5

The home was in the right location and at the right time. The community is very quiet, especially off season. The rooms are lovely. Despite my comments below, I would rent this house again.

Upon check in the bathroom was dirty. I knew about the self cleaning, but the standard of "clean" varies among people. In this case, my "clean" was very different than that of the last occupant. Hair in the shower, urine on the toilet, hair and tooth paste in the sink, etc. Recommendation is to sanitize the bathroom yourself upon check-in since you can't count on the previous occupant to do so.

I do think that a linen service at a "reasonable" charge would be nice. Especially if you are flying across the country.

Owner's Response: Hello Viki, I am very sorry to hear of the condition of the cottage upon your arrival. You are sooooo right...everybody has a different definition of clean. This coming season 2010 we have our own cleaning staff going over every rental property we have after each renter leaves to make certain that they leave the property clean. As for the linen's we do offer a linen package for each property, sorry you were not aware of that. We hope to see you again in the near future so you can see for yourself that we have corrected these propblems. Thanks Karl
