About this listing
We are sharing our "happy place". Cozy, family-friendly cottage has everything you need to enjoy a lovely vacation in a quintessential New England town. Ideally located between Guilford's famous green, gorgeous harbor and town beach, easily walk everywhere. High-season/weekend rate reflected in general view--check for actual.
Recommended for groups of up to 4 (5 if with kids), more that that can be accommodated but will be close quarters (unless short stay, or "home base" for active people).
This is a 1 bedroom with a queen bed, 2 closets and dresser space.
Sunroom "big bed" is a king bed but also serves as a great place to lay back and enjoy movies, wii or a great book. It is adjacent to main living area with a pass through and open doorway, so we've installed a curtain over the pass through and provide a screen that can be placed by the doorway to allow for some privacy.
Gather around a puzzle or classic game in the living room with ample room for family and guests.
The dining area table expands to seat 6 to 8 and the hutch is stocked with linens and serving ware.
Large galley kitchen is stocked with plenty of cookware, dishes, glasses and more.
The favorite spot in the house is out of the house on the screened porch. Comfy seating on sturdy antique wicker, or relax on the lounge chair. We even placed a small table and chairs for those who want to eat al fresco without the bother of bugs. The chest is loaded with games and puzzles for hours of device-free enjoyment.
Huge side yard is great for badminton or other yard games. Also has a hammock for a lazy afternoon nap.
Small patio off the screen porch has a small bbq and table and chairs for outdoor cooking and dining. (Seasonally)
We have adult bikes (2 vintage style beach bikes; 1 mountain bike), yard games, beach and camp chairs, beach and rain umbrellas and more.
Driveway accommodate 2-3 cars.
Everything for a fabulous vacation or short getaway is available - linens and towels, beach gear, games, bikes, bbq, fully stocked kitchen and more. Just bring your clothing and stop at the local Bishops, Big Y, or Fresh Market for your provisions. Or forget the provisions and walk to town or the harbor for breakfast, lunch and dinner at Guilford's outstanding eateries! There is also the Guilford Marketplace for quick provisions a quick walk into town.

I love free time to be spent with a equal balance of old and new. Traveling to favorite spots and trying out new ones, spending time with family and long-time friends and meeting new ones, and seeking modern and antique finds.
A great way to do that is with a bit of adventure at heart. Adventure days are a family tradition, whether a short or long day, at least once a week make a loose plan to do something adventurous, try something different or go someplace new. Then when the adventure is a success (most are), share and enjoy that experience with a friend. An a new twist is now, as a host, I get to share those adventure ideas with guests!
