It is secluded enough for a peaceful, uninterrupted get together yet it is only 25 minutes to the nearest Starbucks and malls. The living room has a gas fireplace that makes it a perfect gathering place for some serious heat and the den has a gas fireplace unit that keeps the rest of the house at a constant temperature. The bedroom has an electric fireplace that makes for the most romantic setting. The weather outside might be frightful but inside the cottage it is as warm and bright as a summer day!

It is a great place for young adventurous kids. they can catch fish with a net at the shore, or learn to fish. There are 'swimmies and life jackets for everyone in the plastic storage box on the dock.

HAMMOCK, FIREWOOD, FIRE PIT: There is a large two person hammock for resting and a two person swing seat on the deck. There is a BBQ grill, with a side burner, so you can cook a meal for everyone. The firewood is supplied, cut and ready for you. The water is warm, and the Adirondack chairs are perfect for watching the kids in the lake.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Me and my girlfriends spent last Labor day here and I've been meaning to get on here an write a review for a while now. All I can say was it was the perfect getaway. The home has so much to offer on the lake..paddleboat, canoe, kayaks! The floating dock was a perfect spot to tan and relax. Although a small house it was the perfect spot for a small group. Everything you needed was in the home..the firepit was the selling point and the homeowners supplied all the wood!! I am so grateful to have spent such a memorable holiday here. Many thanks to the homeowners and I hope to return soon :)

COZY QUIET COTTAGE NEXT TO A BEAUTIFUL LAKE

  • 5 of 5
The owners were great to work with, the place was clean and comfortable. There is a nice deck for eating outside so you can watch the sunset over dinner. The lake is peaceful and quiet, we saw a bald eagle fly across it a couple times our last night there. Kayak and paddleboat are ready to go, the town of Hamlin is nearby for anything you might need, but the cottage is far enough off the beaten path to give you a sense of seclusion. Cable/DVD/Wi-fi work great for those who don't want to detach from "reality" entirely. Would definitely go back.

GREAT ROMANTIC GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and I had a great stay at this Lake House for president's day weekend... Everything was as nice or better than pictured, and the lake was beautiful. The fireplaces kept us warm throughout the weekend with over 20" of snow on the ground. Great customer service- owner offered to switch out for a different weekend due to the snowy conditions, but we made it down anyway. Peaceful weekend, very quiet and beautiful. We went snowboarding at Montage mountain, about 20 minutes away. Would highly recommend!

CUTE, CHARMING, COMFORTABLE COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
Before we even arrived, Mary was a delight to communicate with. She was willing to work with our schedule, and it was very easy to pay with a credit card over the phone. (This also removes the need for that annoying security deposit that many of us have haggled with at other properties!)

Upon arrival the cottage was clean and well-stocked with all the items that you would expect in a vacation rental. We went to the local Weis to stock up on some groceries and quickly made ourselves at home.

You can read about all the amenities from the property listing, but it truly is hard to find something about this place that isn't fabulous. Fishing from the dock netted us pickerel, bass, and sunnies. The well-maintained gas grill and two outdoor tables allowed us to eat every meal outside. The paddle boat and kayak made for a fun tour around the lake. Enjoying a glass of wine while while taking in the sunset over the lake was so relaxing. And then listening to the sounds of the nature while being warmed by the fire capped off some really great days.

I can't say enough about this place. We certainly plan to come again...and maybe this time we'll bring the kids! Thanks so much for making this available, Mary and Frank!

Owner's Response: Hi Scott,
THank you so much for your kind words. It makes us so happy to have folks there who appreciate the cottage and lake the way we do. It truly is heaven to us. We would love for you to return and bring your little ones too! They will love it the way ours do I guarantee! In the summer we put a water trampoline out that the kids love to play on and I love to chill out on. The fall is beautiful up there with the leaves, pumpkin and apple picking and campfires too! We look forward to hearing from you again!
Thank you again,
Mary and Frank

COMFORTABLE AND QUIET

  • 5 of 5
My family really enjoyed our stay at Mary & Frank's Lake House. We were only there Mon - Wed, which was a little too short. The house itself, is on the small side - but perfect for a family of 4 (we have a 3 and 1 yr old). The lake access was wonderful! I was able to just sit and relax on the grass/bricks while both my boys played in the water. Our only complaint was that it rained on our only full day there and there was nothing to do with two small boys stuck inside! Thank goodness I brought some of their favorite movies!
As we were leaving - my older son asked when we could come back to "our new house"... so I'm pretty sure we'll be back next year!!!

PERFECT FOR COZY WEEKEND

  • 4 of 5
I stayed at this cottage with three college friends for a weekend in the spring, and it was perfect for our needs. The owners are thorough and provide all the information that you need to make the most out of a visit. The cottage has a beautiful lake view and is ideally sized for 2-4 guests, with two small bedrooms, a sizable and well-equipped kitchen, and a wonderful living room with fireplace and TV/DVD player. All in all, this property provides very good value for money!
