I am organizing of the summer of 2017 rental season. I hope that you and your family will want to come again. If that is the case, please let me know and I will do my best to put you in the house you would like. I've already been busy with rentals. I hope that this means it will be a good year for all of us. One must bring your own sheets and towels to these properties.

There aren't the usual distractions here at all. You have to make your own way and your own fun. It isn't too hard with Swan's Island under your feet.
