Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
"Soundings” is set in the trees at the quiet end of a dead end street, just a 10 minute walk from the beach. On the second floor there are two large bedrooms with a queen bed and bunk beds in each. There is a small den with a TV, and a split bath which has a bathtub/shower and large sink in one half and a toilet and sink in the other half.
Breakfast is available in the downstairs dining area.
*We can accommodate up to 6 guests.*

The space
We chose the name "Soundings" for our spacious retreat because: when the windows are open you can often hear the surf, when the trains pass by you can hear their rumbling approach and retreat and the haunting echoes of their whistle, and we hope, like the river boats of old which dropped "sounding lines" to judge the depth of the river, we offer our guests an opportunity to reflect on and rejoice in life.

Guest access
While you are here you can have access to all of the upstairs space. The den is equipped with a TV connected to cable, and some basics for simple meals - a small refrigerator, a coffeepot with fresh ground coffee, an assortment of tea, a microwave and a small assortment of dishes and serving utensils.
Breakfast will be served in our downstairs dining room.
When the weather is warm you can enjoy our screened porch looking out on the wooded side yard and make use of the outside grill. Or you can borrow bicycles or beach equipment and explore our lovely quiet beach community and, if you like, rinse off under the outside shower.
