We came for only a couple of days, but felt at home immediately. We cooked, we canoed, we lazed on the dock. Internet worked great, (thank goodness, because we have 2 teens and a tween), TV was just fine. We played monopoly. Grocery & Kmart are 10 min away (But you have to bring your own shopping bags to Price Chopper!). All instructions provided by the owner were right on target. Smooth little getaway for this CT family.
