The Little Cottage near the sea, sits privately behind a charming inn at the tip of one of the most exclusive areas in Manchester by the Sea. it is only a short walk past exquisite homes to glorious Tucks Point where your family can enjoy swimming, boating, picnicking, clamming, and sun bathing. It is less than a two mile walk to town with a number of restaurants, bars, ice cream shops, the commuter rail into Boston, with famous singing beach a short walk from there. Stay a week buy a pass

The space
The Little Cottage near the sea is charming for those who embrace crooked pine floors, a not so modern kitchen that works with a pretty window over looking the wild flowers in the field and is in an old horse stable, some windows held up with a stick and the history that an 1850 old school house, turned barn, turned cottage offers. The first floor has a small mud room, an opened concept dining and living area with great wifi and cable and the kitchen with a cedar pantry. Up the steep steps lay the three bed rooms and a full bath. It is very peaceful and private in the cottage with lovely light and plenty of fresh air. The third bed room with the single bed is best for a young person seeing that it only has a curtain for a "door" and people need to walk through it to get to the bathroom. We are in the process of painting and moving things around right now to get ready for the high season. I will post pictures soon. We are adding more white walls with a touch of spring green.

Where you’ll be

Manchester-by-the-Sea, Massachusetts, United States

The Little Cottage in in a great spot because it sit behind an inn on a corner that leads you to the many places of Manchester by the Sea. Walk one way about .4 miles past beautifully landscaped gorgeous homes to the sea with Tucks Point on one side and a lovely cove on the other. Walk another way on a nice road past an open field with lots of deer sightings into the center of town and a little bit further to Singing beach. You are right off RT127 to take you too all the Cape Anne towns with RT 128 being only a couple miles away.
