Sea escape cottage are great! My husband, our 2 dogs and I stayed in cottage 1 for a weekend. The cottages have everything that you need. The owners are very helpful and lit our fire pit on Sat. night. If you like high end hotels, this place isn't for you. If you want to stay in a homey cottage, that takes pets, this is the perfect place. The cottage had a comfortable bed and a TV/DVD player. We planned on having a picnic, so we brought a lot of stuff with us, however, the one thing we didn't bring was napkins/paper towels. Don't forget those!!
There are no ATMs on the island, so if you want to buy lobster at the wharf, bring cash. We went to Morse's Cribstone Grill the first night and realized there were two parts...a "lobster shack" and a restaurant, both take ccards. We ate dinner in the restaurant but had the lobster shack prepare 3 lobsters for us to make lobster salad the next day. They were reasonably priced. Uncooked-$4.50/lb and cooked-$5.50/lb. We liked the lobster shack so much, we went back the next night and had them prepare 5 lobsters (my husband has a big appetite) and 2 lbs of mixed steamers and little-necks (which were $5/lb cooked). The whole thing prepared was $44. The restaurant was great, but we got half as much food for twice as much money. Because the cottage had a kitchen table and everything we needed, we will opt for the lobster shack take-out next time we go to the island.
In short, the cottages were great and we will visit again next year!
