My place is close to The Village center and the Village Green, shops, restaurants, Chocolatier, a bookstore. A half mile to the beach, 4 miles to a National Seashore beach in Madison. I love my place because of the light, the cozy relaxing porch, the locals, the location to the village, the food!. You want to take a Picnic lunch with you? talk to me...
My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, bicyclists or hiking enthusiasts, anyone who just loves history!

Kate is a friendly, helpful host; also a good cook. The house is old so has fairly steep stairs to the second floor and also steps to negotiate getting to the bathroom from the bedroom. Hard for someone with bad knees to handle. There isn't really a common area to hang out,…

Interaction with guests
I am available to help you with any planning and suggestions if you wish. I have baby sat a 3 yr old, cooked 3 course dinners for 6, and catered a cocktail party for a Yale Graduation pre dinner here at the Cottage.
