Guest Testimonials

We have stayed at this Sea Star Cottage on several occasions. It is a lovely and tranquil spot to get recharged and enjoy a vacation. It is very private and yet close to a beautiful beach! You will think you are in a paradise when you see the beach! The cottage is cozy and wonderfully decorated. We would highly recommend it to all ages!

Wow! We wanted peace and tranquility and got it! Our cottage was a marvelous place to escape internet, phones etc! We were so fortunate to have a full moon and high and low tides! Wonderful. We were constantly amused at the many sea birds, deck squirrels and hares. Weather was wonderful despite the mid October time frame! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and rested our souls! Just to make sure we experienced the cabin in all weather conditions, our last day provided us with a wonderful wild storm. We sat comfortably inside while wind and rain raveged the roof and trees! It was hard not to be mystified by the ever changing gray cloud banks and gusts of wind as it played with the surface of the water. Better than satillite TV!

Thanks so very much for opening this amazing "house-with-a-view!" Sanderling Beach House is utterly amazing! The design totally allows every room to enjoy and celebrate the beauty of its surroundings. Thank you for the special things you've allowed us to use in your home, too; from the fine sheets and towels to quilts and good (Henckel's) knives. Great job! Those things really enhanced our stay. We will definitely be back! Nature's beauty was amazing! Spectacular! Unbelievable!

We stayed at Elm Tree Cottage while buying a house in Shelburne. Perfect. We’d recommend for anyone. No space for kids or guests but for a couple it’s perfect! Great host.
