About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Located in the quintessential historic New England village of Essex, voted Best Small Town in America, this sunny, exquisite cottage is surrounded by world class, exclusive yacht clubs, historic inns, restaurants, boutique shopping, antiques and art galleries, and the finest, quaint nautical atmosphere New England has to offer.

This is an upscale vacation/short term rental -- newer, comfortable furnishings, kitchen appliances, dinner and glassware mixed in with lovely antique pieces add to the New England coastal charm. Bed linens, towels, down pillows - everything is luxury - new comfy plush top beds with down duvets invite blissful sleep and lazy mornings. Stone patio, fenced yard, garage space. Walking distance to marinas, the River Museum, yacht clubs and the entire village of Essex!

Fully fenced private yard to welcome the entire family - 2 legged and 4 legged! The Village of Essex is known for being wonderfully dog-friendly and a very special, picturesque walking destination.

The Cottage is one level and 1000 sf. It is laid out to give privacy and with sliding glass doors and skylights, and high ceilings, it feels much larger! The master bedroom has attached full bath and is off of the living room. There is a plush top queen bed with down duvets and pillows, plush robes, luxury sheets. The 2nd bedroom is at the other end of the house and has its own full bath (toilet & shower) with a door to close this "guest wing" off completely from the rest of the house. All bedrooms have flat screen tvs as well as in living room. Dining room off the kitchen. Wireless internet throughout the house, white slipcovered sofas and chairs in sunny living room. Fully fenced yard.

The decor is high end 'coastal' with light colored antique European country pine, white slipcovers, .....very serene and relaxing but right in the center of it all! A simply gorgeous setting and easy walk to EVERYTHING in this quaint, historic New England nautical village!

It is furnished, again, with Sferra, Peacock Alley, Pinecone Hill, Horchow, Restoration Hardware, Crate & Barrel, Pottery Barn -- plus antiques. This is not a typical vacation rental by any means........
