We felt very comfortable at the Bow Tie Cottage. There was plenty of room with an outstanding kitchen and a very nice yard. Most impressive was that the cottage was located centrally between the restaurants, shopping, wineries and the beach. We had a wonderful time during our stay.

I loved my stay at Bow Tie Cottage! From the moment I walked in, I immediately felt like I was on vacation. The cheerful furnishings and décor reminded me of a quaint New England cottage. The floor plan worked perfectly for privacy and the close location to the beach and the middle of town made it a very convenient choice! We hope to stay there again next year!

We really enjoyed our weekend stay at Bow Tie Cottage! Very relaxing, and just what we needed to recharge. The cabin is cozy and comfortable, close to beaches and also some great restaurants. We enjoyed antiquing, discovering the nearby beaches, and climbing "the dune" at the state park. Also enjoyed hiking at the nearby primordial forest. Can't wait to come back!

We really enjoyed our stay at your cottage. It was spotless and so well appointed! We made use of all the wonderful amenities-from the fire pit-to the hot tub-the card games-and the selection of DVD’s. We enjoyed it all. The front lawn was perfect for family tag football games-and the kitchen had everything we needed to make chili dinner and warm cookies. So perfect. The location is ideal as well!

We had so much fun this week! I loved the beach, the house, the porch, the hot tub, and enjoyed the day we spent in Chicago as well. The weather here was perfect and the house is so cozy! The decorations and colors are adorable! This was definitely a perfect vacation.


We really enjoyed our stay at your cottage. It had everything we needed, and it is so beautiful and cozy! Although it was a short stay we really enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub, even in the rain. We enjoyed some time at the beach and renting kayaks at the river. I look forward to another visit to partake in more of what this beautiful area has to offer.
