Really Nice Place!

My wife and I were looking for a place to spend a relaxing, low-key week. I searched online and came across this lovely property which appeared to be exactly what we were looking for, so we booked it.
Gary was great in communicating, both online and over the phone and the reservation/payment process was very smooth. He even sent us detailed directions, which were very accurate.
Gary was also there for most of the week, and we had a nice time chatting with him and his friends. He was also very concerned that everything was good for our stay.
We arrived and the property was spotless and just like the photos. We settled in and headed to town for supplies - the main town of Poulteney was quite a bit smaller than we had pictured.
The dock was very nice, we spent several full days just hanging out on it, swimming and sunning. There's also a nice fire ring, for warming up the evenings.
There were a few small family restaurants in Poulteney, the best of which, Perry's, was closed for vacation most of the week. If you're into fine dining, you'll need to go to Rutland or Manchester, both about 35 minutes away, but a beautiful drive.
Our best meal was at a place called "Little Harry's" in Rutland.
As far as activities, there isn't a great deal to do in the immediate area. It's very quiet, even though there are a lot of camps in the area, and we did some reading, kayaking and hiking. We saw several Bald Eagles and came within about 50' of one while kayaking, which was incredible.
For hiking, we took a geat hike at the Nature Reseve owned by the college which was on Endless Brook Road. It's about a half hour climb, and you get an amazing vista of the Lake and surrounding area. Highly recommend this one!
Overall, this rental was great for a relaxing, do-nothing vacation. Highly recommended!
