If lots of privacy is something you seek, this quaint little cottage located in the heart of East Chop is for you! East Chop Lighthouse is short walking distance away, and the public beach is just a half-mile away. This cottage has a kitchenette with a full-sized fridge, but please note: the stove is antique and not in service. Only an outdoor (but well-equipped) shower is available! Quirky and fun, be sure to check this one out. Internet and reception is spotty in the area. The host advises that if you need a strong internet connection, you might look elsewhere. This space is not suitable for bringing children.
