Beautiful view/cabin and unparalleled hospitality!
The photos do not do this wonderful cabin and the wonderful Karen justice! First things first - the surroundings: Toddy Pond is stunning to look at/canoe around in (I'm not a lake swimmer, but my guy and friend certainly enjoyed the sparkling water and floating dock!). Blue Hill and the awesome Tradewinds grocery store are about 15 minutes away and perfect for picking up supplies/getting your in-town fix. Most importantly, I didn't leave with a single mosquito bite - that is unheard of. There must be a magic forcefield over the pond!
The cabin itself is a rather large camp and there are so many creature comforts that Karen includes, that it's hard to list them all: comfy bed with tons of blankets, bed warmers, fans, every spice/condiment/cooking utensil you could ever need, pet bowls, grill with propane, torches with bug repellent, fire pit with wood already cut, canoe and oars, games...literally everything is there for your fun-having/relaxing. The decor is thematic and adorably appropriate for the setting (loons and bears and wolves, oh my!) and the deck is awesome for star-viewing, lake-staring, and drinking wine.
Speaking of wine and goodies! Like a splendid, magical, goody fairy, Karen left a bottle of blueberry wine (yum!) and a tasty homemade cheesy snack AND midway through, she brought down the most delicious blueberry pie I have ever had. MAGIC. And there was accompanying ice cream in the freezer. DOUBLE MAGIC. Sweet German Shepard Abby came down every morning and said hello to us and our pup - a welcome greeting for sure! So, obviously the hospitality is unparalleled. Just really, really fantastic and homey and everything you could ever want in a home-away-from-home.
Hmm, what else...oh! There are cute co-ops and farms and antique shops all along the way there...The Blue Hill Fair is next week, which we are pretty sad we are missing, but there's always next year!
Nice and private and beautiful and homey and all things you don't even have to think of because Karen and Mark have already thought of it and made you feel like you're in camp heaven. Thanks so much for a splendid time! I spy a longer stay in our future :)
