Remote work from Mermaid Cottages is a brand standard for our collection of happy cottages. High-speed Internet comes with each cottage rental so you can stay plugged in when needed and really make the most of your quality time when you unplug. You’ll have the option of working from the kitchen, a bedroom, the porch or a deck. Some cottages have a private pool and working from a lounger works well, too. It doesn’t matter if you’re here for a few nights, a few weeks, a month or longer, our Internet access is up to speed for all your needs. In fact. we’re celebrating the end of winter and we’re offering lowered rates at our remaining available cottages with spring dates open. Just imagine yourself remote working from one of these Mermaid Cottages.
