Loved the location, nice cleanliness, had everything we needed, and would definitely go back!

This was our 3rd time staying in the Salt Marsh, though the first time during a pandemic! It was perfect, as always. We were able to still enjoy the beautiful beaches, walks, runs, bike rides, sunrises and sunsets, and much more...while feeling safe at the same time.

This is a perfect little Maine cottage! Our family loved spending the weekend. There is everything you need and super clean. We loved that our younger daughter could sleep in the bunk bed and our teen daughter could take the sleeping loft for a little privacy. Quiet, peaceful and great location for Drake’s Island beach. Do bring bug spray because there are a lot of mosquitoes, especially in the driveway area.

We love going to this house every year but the one thing that you should know is you need BUG SPRAY. The mosquitoes getting in and out of the car are vicious. It didn't used to be that way, started about 5 years ago. Not sure what changed. But otherwise, very comfortable, perfect for making memories.

We’ve been staying here at this house for around 15 years now. Its right on the salt marsh and very relaxing, only a short walk or bike ride (1 mile) to Drakes Island beach. Its small but well thought out and has all you need and we love it because its still close to things but away from all the traffic and people on route 1.
