Sanctuary Cottage is so charming that it has been featured in books and Boston Globe profiles. With its open floor plan, it's bigger inside than it appears. Located in Asbury Grove, this Summer cottage community is fun to visit and makes a great home-base for discovering the North Shore. Great for families or as a romantic/restorative getaway. We welcome you to our sanctuary!
