Yes, the price is low but that's why so many customers have come for decades!
Looking for a nice clean quiet cottage close to Nantucket Sound beaches? And one that you can afford on a tight budget with some money left for gas & dining?
Well, then...Pleasant Forest Shores just may be the place for YOU! Here's a summary:
This listing is for Cottage #3 - A three bedroom cottage with screen porch at rear. Has double bed in one bedroom, two twin beds in the second and bunk beds in third. Accommodates six people maximum. Total size is 844 sq ft. including 94 sq ft porch. Minimum stay: 5 nights but weekly Fri-Fri is the standard rental.
Stay once...you'll want to return for decades as some of our customers have done before! Here are the reasons why:
The cottages are located on a quiet street in a well maintained natural scrub pine and oak setting of about 2 acres with less than 5 min walk to two town beaches...
They are generously spaced for privacy with average of 50 feet between units and average 30 feet from driveway...
Units are very spacious compared to other colonies in the area...about 550 sq ft (approx 28' x 20') for two bedroom unit not including the screened porches averaging 90 sq ft...
The cottages are unique in the style and quality of construction...based on Swedish "Stuga" design...my father (who built them) was a professional cabinet maker so woodworking details are superb...
They are furnished in the style of the 1950-60's but many units have had some/all new bedding and/or refrigerators and/or carpets installed since 2002...
They are kept in very clean condition...thanks to the non-smoking tenants who respect the work of my parents...and is part of reason for the low rates...and I attempt to completely check all aspects at turnover time...
But most of all, due to unique pricing structure, it's very affordable! Not like other high-priced low-quality ones! My mother believed in making it possible for everyone to enjoy a vacation, and I am trying to continue the tradition.
Unit is priced based on TWO people with additional adults/children at a low ($6 or less) daily rate. This allows a couple to rent a larger unit, have guests for a night or two, and yet keep costs to a minimum.
Discounts are given for additional weeks, varying from $5-$25 depending on unit and week number. Since a changeover is skipped, you get a break on rate!
Other important details:
All rentals are from Friday at 4:30 p.m. to Friday at 10:30 a.m.
To keep cottages and grounds in better shape: NO pets and NO smoking!
These cottages are from the 1950's so there are NO telephones, TV, or microwaves...you won't miss them!
Things to know:
There are no TV's, but you may bring a small one if you request. Reception is usually only Channel 6!
You bring your own linens (sheets, towels, etc)...Blankets and pillows are provided...but many folks bring their favorite pillow.
All cottages have gas wall heaters for those cool nights...(the Apartment has an electric space heater)
Since these units do NOT have A/C, bring a fan if you think the breeze won't be enough to stay cool.
Kitchens have gas stoves, refrigerators, cookware, dishes and utensils so just bring the food and drink!
Access to owner's phone is available to make emergency/calling card/local calls if your cell phone fails or you don't have one.
Owner's high-speed Net may be accessed via wi-fi upon request.
All units have vacuums, broom, mops, brushes, etc...If you MUST have "brand-X cleaner", bring or buy it.
If you want to place to relax, stay here...If you want a place to party wildly, please look elsewhere, ok?
IMPORTANT: Bookings for 2015 began in March when the many existing customers (85%+ repeat rate) were contacted BUT you can inquire NOW and make a guest reservation if space is still available Thanks for your understanding!
If my lower response rate concerns you, it's low because when I'm not doing the bookings in my off-season, I am not quite as prompt to reply - Now that I AM doing schedule for 2015, I WILL reply much sooner, ok?...Read more
