Sweet Grass Bay Cottage - Peace and Quite
August 30, 2023
Peace and quite. We had a great time watching all the wildlife and the tide come in and out right from the deck. The clam digger were fun to watch too. The cabin is amazing with all the with all the decor. We had everything we needed to cook with and the beds are great! We asked to stay another day and YES we did. Thank you so much for welcoming us into your home!
Perfect, quiet cabin.

Beautiful location, super nice hosts and very clean. Would definitely recommend and visit again!
Quiet, secluded, nice water view
September 15, 2022
Overall a nice place to stay. Quiet, secluded, nice water view. Cabin was a good size for the two of us, comfortable and adequately furnished/supplied with necessary appliances, dishes, etc. One problem, however: internet access was slow at best, and at times was not usable. Streaming performance then became impossible. When I contacted the manager by email, she replied that I should restart the router. I had no idea where that was, but the WI-FI connection was always strong.
A wonderful view out to the larger cove
April 7, 2022
This was an older but nice cabin that had a large stone fireplace for colder evenings, and also had electric heat that could be used. There was a wonderful view out to the larger cove from the living room and the deck. There was plenty of cookware for anything you might want to cook and nice space for four to to eat and/or relax on the large deck. We were somewhat surprised by the flight of stairs down to the cabin from the parking area, which would not be a problem for most, but did offer a challenge for a person with mobility issues. Otherwise, we had a great time and enjoyed our visit. The location is central with easy access to Stonington, Burnt Cove, Haystack or leaving the island.
A lovely little place

A lovely little place. As others have noted: the internet service is sporadic, and the cabin could use a number of renovations. But neither of those factors were a problem for us. The location is remarkable, and having done an exhaustive search of the area, the value is very good. If you want a pristine, brand new accommodation, best to find another option. If you want a lived-in, “grandpa’s old cottage” experience on a nearly private tidal cove, this is a good option.
Also, the supplies are excellent: dishes, tools, etc.
One note: Google maps may take you to an incorrect address on the west side of the island. There are two Harbor Drives. Fortunately, our host Nicole was available for a call and helped us to find the right place.
Other factors some haven’t mentioned: although it is secluded, there is still some light traffic noise from the road during “rush hours.” Those looking for absolute seclusion and silence should know this. For most, it won’t be an issue, it is very minor, and true silence can be found most of the day and all evening.
The fireplace is a nice amenity, but I think it was having trouble drawing (yes, the damper was fully open), so it was a bit more of a hassle than a joy.
Lastly, the water supply lines had a lot of air in them, so there were often sputtery, clunky pipe moments. Not sure what that was about.
But, again, it was lovely. It worked for us. It has character, and truly, the location and privacy are hard to beat, especially for the money.
