“What a great stay. Hosts are very attentive and the home was so charming. Great location with a 5min drive to Downtown and 10min drive to Oval Beach. House was very clean and the bed was super comfortable. Plenty of in house amenities and cooking supplies which come in handy as Monday and Tuesday, many local restaurants are closed. You’re attached to the green cottage but privacy is good and it’s very quiet overall. Would totally stay again and would absolutely consider renting all 4 cottages for a friends trip. Book with confidence.”
Our townhouse is named "A Step Away" because it offers a downtown location along with a back yard, a deck, two levels of living space, and it's dog friendly. This professionally decorated and seasonally refreshed 2 bedroom and 1.5 bath home is neatly located behind our lifestyle mercantile shop where all guests receive a special discount at our store during their stay. Enjoy yourselves at our fully accessorized home away from home.
“A great stay! Our family (2 adults, 2 little kids) enjoyed the convenience to town, private backyard, and easy parking. We spent a lot of time playing in the park across the street and walking along the marina watching the boats. Nicely decorated and a cozy spot for any time of year. We look forward to returning!”

“Our stay, during the quarantine, was absolutely wonderful. We escaped Chicago to have a mini corona-cation and though the shops and restaurants were closed, we had such a lovely time. The house was beautiful and had everything we needed! We climbed the stairs, took walks around town, enjoyed walk-up window coffee at Uncommon, chowed down on burgers and fries from The Butler and even had the luxury of binging Netflix shows during the storms. Thank you, Ethan + team, for allowing us to shelter-in-place at your beautiful cottage!”
