Left on 10/11/2012 for a stay in September 2012 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Oct 11, 2012Stayed Sep 2012
I recently had a memorable stay for my autumn Equinox observance. This is w/o a doubt the most picturesque and pleasant view on the island. I disappeared for several days onto the spacious screened porch listening to the sounds of a salt marsh, marking the tides' shift, watching the sunsets. My bare feet enjoyed the slate floor in the great room. When it was time to stretch our legs, the nearby pond was jumping with fish and waterfowl. Fun for one - paradise for a couple - perfect for a "working" vacation. I'm plotting a return stay.
