Overall the "outdoor" experiences were perfect! (five stars) Swimming, kayaking, canoeing, sunning, fishing, fire pit, sitting in hot tub were all great activities for our family which included 6 adults and four young boys. We only got "yelled" at once from across the lake for too much laughing while playing on the floating raft. Ha! The lakeside setting with outside decking and easy entry and exit into the lake was greatly appreciated for both old and young.
Inside, we were not blown away. (three and a half stars) The bathroom arrangement is tough. Master bedroom has the upstairs bath which is fine. The two other bedrooms are upstairs and at night when all other family members need to go, they need to go downstairs to the other end of house to use the bathroom. For families with younger children that could be an issue, as the staircase only has railing on one side. Kitchen, and kitchen supplies are very basic, not for a serious chef. Disappointed there was no blender as the description had promised. The outdoor Weber grill was first class. "Newly remodeled cottage" description is a stretch.
Had two good day trips. One to Alexandria Bay and the other to Tooley Ponds Road to see several waterfalls.
Overall everyone had a nice week.
