My family and I were fortunate enough to rent this lovely cottage for the winter (Dec. 1 - March 6). We have rented it in the past (in the summer and winter) for only a week or so at a time, so this time we decided to splurge.
The property is absolutely breathtaking, no matter the season. There are a lot of outdoor things to do - like hiking, swimming, and kayaking in the summer and snowman building, ice skating, sledding, and hockey in the winter. It is also a short drive to a few of the ski resorts.
The cottage itself is warm and cozy...truly a home away from home. It has recently been updated and there are more updates to come. While the updates are nice, we would still love it just the same if nothing had been changed.
The closest towns of Margaretville and Arkville are great. If there is anything you need or forgot at home you should have no problems finding it. There is a huge grocery store with a CVS pharmacy next door, as well as great restaurants and shops. Do yourself a favor and stop by Arkville Bread and Breakfast one (or all) of the mornings you're there...delicious home-style food and friendly people!
The only reason I wouldn't recommend staying here, especially if you stay for an extended period of time, is you'll never want to leave!
