My parents, husband, and two children (ages 2 and 7) stayed here for a week in mid-August for our annual family vacation. My mother was in charge of the lease. Kim's home was spotless and even toiletries were provided in each bathroom. The kitchen was well-stocked with every imagineable utensil. We ate our meals outside on the porch overlooking the lake nearly everyday. There was plenty of room for us to spread out and the girls enjoyed the downstairs rec room area for playing games/ dolls after swimming. The swimming area is sandy bottom and the owners keep it weed free (which I greatly appreciated). We all had fun jumping off the swim platform and floating on the many water toys the owners include in the rental. Lots of bluegills to catch off the dock. We caught several large bass in the canoe further down the Reservoir. Charlton Reservoir allows powerboats and is famous for waterskiing but the noise did not bother us. The neighbors are friendly. We also appreciated the air conditioners on a few steamy August nights. There is a lush lawn to play on and even a chimney to roast marshmallows. Overall it was a great way to finish the summer with my family before heading back to my classroom!
Our only con is that we could not access the private boat launch (for property owners) to launch our own boat. We had to use the cottage's canoe to fish.
