Very Nice Place to Stay at the Lake
Submitted: September 19, 2011
Stayed: August 2011
Even at the end of August, we had good weather. Cindy and Gary are excellent hosts; they're always around when you need them, either for a hair dryer that we needed to borrow or advice about where to go in our boat. The cottage was very comfortable; I knew I needed to bring sheets and towels but didn't realize I needed to bring everything else, like dishwashing liquid and toilet paper and paper towel and kitchen towel and sponge, etc. So we had to buy a number of things when we got there. Also cottages are all in the shade under the pines, giving the illusion that it's cool or cloudy, but once you get outside, it's great. Lake is just a hundred yards from any cabin door and the boat slip was perfect for our 20' boat, so convenient. Our cottage, #3, just needed more towel racks for four people as the two in the bathroom were small towel racks, barely large enough for one regular size bath towel. Cottage was very clean, too. Shuffleboard and ping-pong were fun and great local food five minutes away and supermarket, too. Kitchen had all the pots and pans and silverware we needed.

Owner's Response: Sydney and Tim, thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback about your stay. We appreciate your positive comments, they help us to know what we are doing right. We're glad you found the cottage very clean and well equipped with cooking equipment and utensils. We feel this is important to our guests. We know that being able to dock your boat in one of our secure boatslips not far from your cottage is important to boaters. Shuffleboard and ping pong are great family activities, no electronic games here! We are fortunate to be within walking distance to the quaint town of Center Harbor which as you discovered has great restaurants and a locally owned supermarket. It also has other great shops such as Bayswater Book Store, Bella Bead Shop, Keepsake Quilting and Patternworks Yarn Shop as well as Yikes Gallery. Did you get to attend a band concert at the gazebo in town? They're held Friday nights throughout the summer. Sometimes you can hear the music from the porch of your cottage as the sounds drifts across the harbor.
Also thank you for helping us identify what we need to improve on. We will create a list on our website of what guests need to bring, and what is provided in the cottages. We will add towel racks in cottage 3 to accomodate more towels.
It was nice to meet you and your family. We hope to see you next summer. Cindy & Gary
