Private with a big yard, this is a great location. Our city kids spent all day running around the yard, picking blackberries, and begging to go back to the quarry -- which is just a short walk/drive away. The house itself is stocked with great books, lovely paintings, and puzzles to help you enjoy the time at home when you're not exploring the island.
Things to know about the house: one of the bedrooms is connected to the other and there is no door in between... so we just hung a curtain/sheet so our kids wouldn't be up all night talking to each other! It's a small house but feels much more spacious than it is -- great outdoor shower. The plumbing is a bit old -- but that's not a reason to not come... just part of living in an old house on an island.
Wifi and cell service are spotty on the island -- but isn't that the point? We were able to enjoy the island so much more.
Other things we enjoyed: Farmer's market on Sat am, fresh wild blueberry pie at Downstreet Market, and many hikes -- especially Lane Island Reserve.
Recommendations: Best to bring some of your fresh veggies and meats from the mainland if you plan on cooking. The local grocery store has a decent selection, but fresh options (other than lobster!) are best bought in Rockland.
Rachel was a great host -- so easy to be in touch with and very responsive.
