Charming house and location. Cold use some maintenance
Too much peeling paint/plaster.
The Gills was a great place to relax and unplug from all the busyness. The location is off the beaten path and feels very secluded which was a plus for my family. My favorite part about the placed was to sit out on the porch swing and read a book. The house is rustic but has a lot of character and feels homey. The place could probably benefit from some decluttering.
A wonderful fall retreat
Four adults in our party and we all enjoyed our fall retreat to The Gills. Beds were very comfortable and the cottage cozy and warm. The fireplace was a nice touch as we dined in front of it with our many lobster dinners. David delivered fresh lobsters daily and spoiled us royally. The kitchen could be better equipped with sturdier pots, a heavy frying pan and some wine glasses. But then again not everyone wants to cook on vacation like I do. Other than that we enjoyed our visit and the cottage tremendously.
Our new family tradition!!
I fell in love with the description of this property and location when I booked it but boy arriving and seeing it in person was even better!! We have been on many family vacations throughout the years and some overseas and you can't even compare. The Gills took our breath away. So relaxing... peaceful and time just being a family. The house itself was just perfect and and full of love... the decor and age of the home is just priceless...You can tell how much work has been put into this classic home. ... It's like going back in time! The view isn't bad either!!! Sitting on that swing or sitting on the rocks down by the water reading a book was just what we needed. The kids enjoyed riding their bikes around the corner to Lands End store or down the street to another beach exploring the island. My husband and I have already booked again next year and hope to many years to come!
Perfect relaxing place
Lobster and reading
From the moment we arrived at this historic home with the ocean view, we were in love. My sister claimed the chaise lounge by the huge window overlooking the water and my mom and I ran out to the rocks which overlook the water. We spent quite some time the following days sitting and climbing the rocks and enjoying the crisp, New England ocean air. We enjoyed sitting on the porch with our tea and walking through the town. The house is at a convenient location, but incredibly secluded at the same time.
The beds were comfortable and of good quality. There were plenty of blankets and pillows to choose from. The shower and bathroom worked great. The house has kept it's historic charm, but all the necessary amenities (kitchen appliances, heat, bathroom - shower and toilets) were in top working order. The bedrooms are all unique. One room overlooks the water. It is bright and airy. The other room (master) is dimmer and has a couch and sitting chair. It's filled with a cabinet of books that we enjoyed looking at. All three of us would have loved to have the furniture in these rooms at our own homes. ;) They were so charming and beautiful! The third room is smaller and dimmer as well. It was equally charming and the beds feel new and are firm and comfortable. Lamps all over the house are plenty, which give sufficient light to enjoy our stay. There are thermostats in every area of the home. The house is very clean.
The home had some amazing quirks and personality. The chairs and couches in the living room were so unique. The huge wooden front door and green screen door were kept according to the time of the building...very authentic. The tapestries and furniture were also from that time period. There was so much to look at. If you enjoy a home that has been well preserved, with furnishings included - this is definitely for you. **One thing to remember with old homes is the dust - if you are allergic to dust (as I am) don't forget your allergy medicine! There are old books in every room as well as modern books. There are magazines that date back over the decades so we could enjoy seeing the change and consistency of the island and surrounding cities.
The charm in this home is the best I've ever seen. We met David, who was incredibly helpful and kind. My mom said she met Carter (the owner) one morning and he was so friendly. The neighbors were easy going.
Thank you David and Carter for preserving this gem and allowing so many of us to enjoy it!
