There is a gas barbecue grill on the outside deck. Utensils, dishes, glasses, coffee, tea are all provided.

Proximity to restaurants? Four at 5 miles (includes 1 waterfront); Three at 10 miles (includes 1 waterfront); Two at 15 miles (includes 1 waterfront; Several at 19 miles. The majority are open Thurs - Sunday, and very few are open on Mondays. All of the restaurants are nice and fit a variety of budgets and tastes.
Pool and row boat shared with others? No. These are not public facilities. Life jackets are also provided.
How’s the fishing? Croaker and perch are common. Occasionally you may catch a small blue or rock fish. Success depends on tides, the season, and bait used. For hire fishing charters for river or Bay fishing are available locally. There are several freshwater ponds within 2 - 19 miles.
Boat launch facility? Public boat launch ramps are within 10 miles (water distance from launch to our dock is a much shorter distance -- less than 2 miles).
Children? This depends. There is one queen-size bed that occupies most of the sleeping area. The deep pool, deep-water dock, and open interior architecture of the cottage would not be conducive to a relaxing experience for a responsible adult supervising an active non-swimmer small child. We do not offer child care service and frown on diapers in the swimming pool.
Pets? Our four cats and chickens would not approve, nor would future cottage guests who may be allergic. Please leave your pets at home or with a quality care-giver.
Smoking? NO !! We have found that despite restricting smoking to outside the cottage, the smoke-permeated clothing and luggage of smokers impacts the freshness of the cottage.  Thus, we no longer accept guests who smoke.
What’s for breakfast? Breakfast is served on weekends and holidays and consists of homemade fresh bread (or biscuits), muffins, homemade jams and jellies, local fruit, orange juice, and coffee.
