An upscale Allergy-Friendly home complete with full kitchen, master bed/bath, WIFI, outdoor shower and fireplace. Mad Calf Cottage is perfect for couples, business travelers, cultural enthusiasts, foodies and adventurers. No pets means no dander or pet smells during your vacation.
“When we arrived at Mad Calf Cottage, my husband’s first words were, “Wow, this is the best place yet!” Having stayed in probably 50 rentals from the Outer Banks of NC to Seattle to Venice, Italy and being the eternal skeptic, I was trepidatious.....until I stepped in. This cottage is phenomenal. It is immaculately clean, incredibly cozy and beautifully decorated. The pictures truly do not do it justice. Additionally the amenities such as bikes, kayaks, access to a fishing pier, outdoor shower and fire pit make it truly make it exceptional. Lara and David were the most congenial hosts, gracious and warm offering help and advice, while giving us tons of privacy. This was truly one of our best vacations ever and we cannot wait to visit again.”

“My daughter (15) and I had a fantastic stay! It was exactly what we needed at this time and this secluded jewel provided us with the relaxation we were looking for. David graciously welcomed us and offered suggestions on places to eat and visit. He was a great host. We greatly enjoyed the kayaks and sunsets, and my daughter got to practice some of her photography! The place is perfect for two people and was very clean and as shown in the photos. The swim spa and outdoor shower were a plus! I truly enjoyed having coffee out in the patio every morning with my book and the views! We will definitely try to come back to this peaceful spot. Thank you David and Mary Ann for sharing this little piece of heaven with me and my daughter!”
“Simple elegance to sooth the soul…” Another lovely comment from another happy guest. Mint Julep cottage aspires to be the most beautiful & comfortable - yet pet friendly - cottage in Irvington. Newly constructed and located across from the Tides Inn, it is easy walking distance shopa, restaurants, & retail spaces. Museums, fishing, & boating abound. Stay, Enjoy and Relax... PS... EVERYONE is welcome to Mint Julep. There is a $50, private pay, pet fee. Just leave the money on the table.
“Albert is a fantastic host, he provided good recommendations for dining and things to do. We received our key code well ahead of our arrival which made checkin easy. The house was newly renovated and spotless. The house is conveniently located to restaurants which are within walking distance. The town is very dog and bike friendly, enabling us to get plenty of exercise. We drove to some of the trails and beaches that Albert recommended, all of them were worth the (short) drive.”
