Description

552 FOREST STREET

2 QUEENS, 1 QUEEN SLEEPER SOFA, SLEEPS 6, PET FRIENDLY

From the early 1990s, Seaside renowned architect Richard Gibbs’ classic two-bedroom Charleston style cottage has been winning praise and return guests to its relaxed Forest Street destination.  The cottage features a much admired deep porch (or “dogtrot”) style layout, with a large full-length screened breezeway linking the private bedrooms downstairs and the kitchen, dining and living area upstairs.

Upscale amenities include a premium stainless kitchen featuring Wolf, Sub-Zero and Asko appliances. Little Lodge is a unique location for experiencing all the best of vibrant Seaside village while also enjoying the quiet wooded areas immediately behind the cottage for strolling or jogging. The street-facing entry door leads onto the screened porch with direct access to the two recently renovated queen bedrooms, each with a new smart TV and private bathroom with modern walk-in shower with frameless glass door and rain showerhead, new marble vanity, backlit vanity mirror and heated floor.

Up an easy staircase inside the porch, the second floor includes the efficient renovated kitchen, dining table, living room with queen sleeper sofa, comfy chairs, large flat screen smart TV, half-bath and street-view balcony. A light-filled inset writing desk with views into the treetops offers the perfect setting for contemplation, reading, writing or staying in touch with the outside world. A woodsy backyard timber deck with charcoal barbecue, outdoor dining table and white picket fence completes this compact venue which will serve as your vacation home base while enjoying the Seaside beach, shops and dining, just steps from the cottage.

Years ago we stayed in Little Lodge several times through the original owners. We have begun traveling with our dog so noticed new owners have Little Lodge as dog friendly, so we wanted to give it a go and it did not disappoint! Newish appliances, furniture and paint job gave it a nice refresh. I like getting up early and opening up all the windows on the second floor, the entire living area seemed like one big porch! Awesome location, loved walking through Ruskin Place to get to the center of town. Had a wonderful visit, no problems!

We loved our stay in Little Lodge! It is in a quiet location, but also just a short walk to restaurants, pools, trails, and the beach. Property management was so helpful and the property owners were kind and lovely people. We look forward to our return!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Little Lodge! The house is so warm and welcoming. We especially loved the upstairs living area and porches. It felt like we were in a tree house! Very comfortable and charming. Not too fancy, which is what we like. Beautiful location with woods behind. One thing to note is that there is room for only one vehicle (or two very small vehicles) in front of the house, but there is a parking area just up the street, which worked out fine. Very centrally located, almost right between the east and west sides of Seaside. Very close to the town center. We really loved it! Just our kind of place!
