Sylvan Cove - Decatur Island

A cluster of seven white-washed cottages and farmhouses nestle together on the shore of Sylvan Cove. Things haven't changed much here since the 1930's: the Cape Cod red trim, the pear orchard, the community dock, the lawn rolling down to the tranquil beach, the occasional sound of waves lapping the shore. Yours is the first cottage: walk off the dock and right up the steps.

The essence of simple living

This classic cottage, a cozy 900 square feet,  features a master bedroom with cedar wainscoting and an exterior door to wrap-around deck, separate bedroom with bunk beds, and one bath. An open kitchen and living room with wood burning stove, oak armoire pantry and breakfast bar offer a spectacular view of Sylvan Cove and the islands beyond. A spacious deck, just a stone's throw to the water's edge, is perfect for grilling a late lunch in the sun or sitting under the umbrella for a few hours with a good book. Built in the 1920s as part of a fishing resort, this quaint cottage, recently remodeled with modern amenities, provides respite from today's hurried pace. Here you can choose to leave the busy world totally behind, or stay in touch with wifi, landline telephone, and flat-screen television. Golf carts are the only means of private transport, not even motorbikes are allowed in this idyllic getaway. Sylvan Cove pairs the delights of a quiet, more peaceful time, with the pleasures of modern convenience. It's the kind of place where it's easy to leave your worries behind. So pack for varied weather.
