for Pemi Shore Cottages

Check-in time is 2pm – 6pm. Navigate to the main cottage at 58 Pemi Shore Ln where we will meet you, show you the cottage, and answer any questions you might have. If you’re going to be arriving after 6pm, please let us know.

Check-out time is 11am or earlier. Please leave trash in the outside bins, the keys on the table, and the cottage generally how you found it. We’ll take care of the rest!

Jane stays in the main cottage and John is in the RV. Each cottage has plenty of privacy.
