Exactly what we wanted, Privacy right on the Lake

  • 5 of 5
The listing is accurate, but really does not describe the level of privacy and beauty of the cottages location. I couldn't have asked for a better location on the lake. The waterfront porch is perfect in its simplicity with wooden adirondack chairs and nothing but view. Upstairs bedroom also boasts the same amazing view and you don't even have to strain your head when in bed to see. Upstairs is fairly updated but still containing its old world charm. Downstairs bedroom/kitchen/living/eating area is old and simple, but very functional. Honestly I loved it. While we do love to have a grand kitchen at times, this is an original cottage and we knew that going it.
Large porch and table on back of house. We actually used for a few of our big dinners. Cottage is surrounded by tall pines and has a very wooded feeling. While staying here, we saw some deer, heard the loons almost every night, and caught a lot of fish! Can't wait to come back.

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5
To say that the pictures don't do this place justice is an understatement, and these are really good pictures. It's hard to describe how perfect the camp is, I's secluded, it's gorgeous, it's perfect. A group of my friends came up for the long weekend, and we are looking forward to a time when we can go back either together or with our respective families. The house it's self is comfortable, clean and has a feeling of home. This is a place that is cared for deeply by the owner, it is a family's escape, there are small notions around the house that speak to you of generations past. this place is loved. The grounds are lovely, and yes it is as close to the water as it looks. You are close enough to the Weirs beach are that it feels right around the corner but still far enough that you don't feel the busyness of a tourist community. We took day trips to the funspot arcade, we climbed Mt. Major (which you should do, the view is amazing). We swam; we did a puzzle; we grilled meat… it was one of the best weekends I've had in a long time and it was made only better by the setting that it all took place in. I am forever grateful that we found this place and were allowed to experience it.

Relaxing, Peaceful and Fun!

  • 5 of 5
Idyllic location and vibe. This cottage had all the character and comfort that was promised. Super clean with plenty of room and a great layout. Pristine views of the lake and great access to the crystal clear water. We all thoroughly enjoyed the fishing, swimming and boating but my favorite moments were spent in the Adirondack chairs on the porch reading a book or just gazing out at the lake. I will be back for sure!!
