Great Spot

by ChrisNFal

We just returned from one night at the Cottages and are already thinking about a return trip. They upgraded our room and put us in the John Jay Cottage. It was right at the end of the dock and had an amazing view of the harbor. The cottage was two floors with a full bath downstairs and a comfortable sitting area and kitchen setup. Upstairs had a nice sized bedroom with a king size bed and a 1/2 bath. Both floors had ductless heat/ac units and with nighttime temps in the 40’s they were nice to have. Outside was a dining area and also a couple of rockers to sit and watch the boats go by. The unit also had the use of two bikes but we didn’t have a chance to go for a ride, hopefully next time. I would definitely recommend staying here.

we stayed for a week in Oct 2018 at the John Jay cottage overlooking the water and the Old Wharf.
The apt was cozy with full kitchen ,two baths and a large bedroom upstairs. Patio overlooked the old wharf and the water
Very peaceful. Would stay again
