CUTTYHUNK RENTAL APARTMENTS The basic layout of all three apartments is the same: that is, each has one bedroom as well as a living room in which people can sleep. Each has a kitchen that is open to the living room. The main difference lies in the size and arrangement of the facilities.

The MAIN HOUSE (centrally heated) has a large, working kitchen (great view) w/ dishwasher and large table that expands to seat eight. The bedroom (queen sized bed plus youth bed) looks out on the rising moon and distant lighthouse at Gay Head. The living room has a Franklin wood stove and a built-in Murphy bed (sleeps two) which can be closed off from the living room by a fold-door (making a second bedroom), and two, built-in, cot-bunk-couches. The huge, cool, shaded deck, securely fenced for toddlers, has a picnic table and built in barbecue. The view from the deck is lovely.

The LITTLE HOUSE (electric heat) is similar--a bedroom (one double, one single bed) and a large living-room (with woodstove). The living room sleeps two on double bed and two on couches. It is U-shaped: at one end, a double bed which can be closed off by a fold-door; 18 feet of glass facing water view across the bottom (east), and another twenty-four feet of glass facing south coming up the other end to the eating area (table seats 6-8) and small kitchen. The views of Islands, Bay and Sound are very nice; there's a large, sunny deck with table and barbecue area. The quietest and most private apartment.

Finally, the EFFICIENCY (electric heat) boasts a small but beautiful bedroom (double bed) with windows on three sides and a lovely view of the moonrise over the water and the distant lighthouse; it also has a small but well-planned living room: at one end a kitchenette and small eating table (seats 4 maximum), at the other end, two, built-in, cot-sized bunk couches, one of which converts to a queen sized bed. There's a tiny pot-bellied wood stove to combat the chill of cold rainy days and large, south-facing windows that afford a nice view of the Sound and Gay Head. The coziest apartment (nicknamed "the honeymoon cottage"), it too, has a fenced deck with barbecue and table.

ALL OF THE UNITS are completely equipped: bed linens and blankets, dishes and cookware, gas grills, towels and mats, fire wood, even a few toys, games and books. I have small and large cribs which can be set up if needed and booster seats. Obviously I welcome small children, though I ask your cooperation in trying to minimize nighttime noise as far as possible, bearing in mind that people who come to Cuttyhunk are usually seeking its unique peace and quiet. For the same reason I ask that if you must bring a radio, you tune it to a whisper. You will find the apartment as clean as I can make it; I ask you to leave it as clean as you find it unless you prefer to pay a $50. cleaning fee.

CUTTYHUNK ISLAND, wonderful at any time of year, is small--two and a half miles long by three quarters wide, only one end of which is settled--the rest is wild with lovely paths for walking and exploring, deer and rabbits to be seen at close quarters (especially off season), wonderful sounds of birds and scents of flowers. The apartments are situated about equidistant (a brief, ten-minute walk) from two nice beaches--one on the east end of the island, one on the north shore. Walking, shellfishing, beachcombing, fishing (one can hire guides at the dock), sunning (the Efficiency and Little House are particularly nice to catch the low, late-fall sunshine), and generally relaxing are the main occupations of our visitors. Although (N.B.) THE ISLAND IS DRY-- there is neither bar nor liquor store anywhere on this unspoiled island (you must bring your own!), there's a small grocery--well stocked and open 8 AM to    5 PM during the season but selling only the basics off season when it's open only  about   one hr.daily   Cuttyhunk is definitely an island for people with "inner resources," the place to "get away from it all
