Our week was amazing and went by way too fast!
Tom and Deb are just great. They made us feel right at home and were available for anything that we might have needed as well as suggestions for area hikes.
The cottage is very comfortable and has everything you need from a large refrigerator to skewers for kabobs (which turned out great on the charcoal grill....the view while cooking was quite relaxing). My 16 and 21yr old kids loved the loft, it is roomy and spacious enough for both of them.
It was so quiet it was hard to believe that we were so close to so many things to do. We hiked to the Fall of Song at Castle in the Clouds, the Loon Center and a great trail just down the road. Also close by are restaurants, great shopping and Weirs Beach.
Being on the north end of the lake and a no wake zone makes it very enjoyable for using the paddle boat, sitting by the water, swimming or as my mother loved to do, sit on the dock enjoying the view and waiting for the loons to swim by. There is a loon sanctuary just down from the property so the opportunity to see and hear them is often. This was the first time I had heard a loon and totally fell in love with them.
The icing on this perfect vacation was being able to bring our Shepherd. He is very much part of the family and it wouldn't have been a family vacation without him....he too enjoyed sitting on the dock!
Tom and Deb just couldn't be any nicer and we had such a good time that we've already booked our stay for 2015!
Looking forward to seeing you and Ari next year,
Tessa, Alex, Mary Anne, Sonya & Drake
