We spent 5 nights at the cottage and thoroughly enjoyed the property. What a great setting! The creek was a little low for fishing, but just right for exploring. My (almost) 17 year old son had a great time heading up to the waterfalls and fishing in the pools. Our lab mix headed straight over the rocks and into the middle of the creek for a drink and to lie down - she loved it. The deck got plenty of use, sitting and listening to the water was a daily past time. The kitchen is great, we made several meals at the house. We got takeout from the Fernwood up the street as well as had dinner there one night. The place is very "rustic" but charming AND the food is spectacular. I highly recomend making time to visit the restaurant. If you're looking to fish, head to Colgate Lake. It's in East Jewett, pretty easy to find (head toward Hunter) and oh so picturesque. Very quiet and serene. All in all we had a great vacation, thank you to Bob and Babs.
