Rent the shi shi Shack this summer

7 Apr

We are renting the OOP Shi Shi Shack this year.  The Shack makes me happy.  It is the quintessential beach cottage, vamped up with over the top furnishings most made by American Artisans featured at OOP.  It makes me very happy to share it with friends and family.  Magic unfolds by the moment at the beach.    You will enjoy the peace and quiet that this little protected cove on Potters Pond provides.  We share this perfect 2 acre spot with 4 neighbors.  You are removed from the busy summer bustle and hum by just minutes if you decide you want it.

Welcome to the Shi Shi Shack!  Scroll through the photos.  Rental details Below!
