I have rented this cottage for 5 consecutive years, and I plan to rent again this summer. Before 2006 I had rented three different Lake St. Catherine cottages. All were directly on the water, and two were larger. All things considered, this cottage is the best deal. It has always been spotlessly clean. The owners are unobtrusive, but very responsive if needed. The location on West Lake Road is close to both Wells, VT and Granville, NY. Although the cottage is across the road from the lake, the road is a dead end, and there is not a lot of traffic. The view from the deck of the cottage is unobstructed and beautiful. The waterfront area dedicated to the cottage is large and well maintained. I have use of a speedboat while I am there, and I've found the dock to be more than adequate.
