Most people write about the place they stayed at as though they discovered heaven on earth. I have to join them in touting Heron Point at the level. I spent three days in comfort and convenience with the special touches that Alyson prepared just for me. The location right on the shore of Oneida Lake and the front door facing the shoreline gave me a sense of seclusion and peace. Alyson's preparations and focus on my comfort made me feel as though I was her special guest. As an example, I showed up with a bottle of wine and no corkscrew. I asked Alyson if I could borrow hers; expecting to walk up to her house and pick it up. She wouldn't hear of me coming to get the corkscrew. She immediately came to my door with the tool I needed! She showed me where I could go fishing on her shoreline or on her lengthy dock. She had a canoe plus a kayak with paddles for me if I wanted to spend some time alone on the water. She even brought two comforters to my door when she knew the temperatures in late September would fall into the low 40's.
It's not that you don't need to look at other properties, but - Why Bother! I'm coming back!
