Michael and Polly provided special attention.

  • 5 of 5

Michael (the owner) was very gracious and accommodating to our needs. The cottage was as pictured and described. Polly the property manager made herself available if we had any problems, which we did not have. We had a very pleasant stay. I would definitely would stay again and recommend to anyone to stay here. Thank you Michael and Polly for a great stay.

5 Crazy Spartan Beast Runners

  • 4 of 5

I just wanted to start off by saying how awesome mike and polly were with communication. Any questions I had they answered it in within the hour and they also recommended some really good places to go for dinner and breakfast.

Our overall stay was good except for there are no bunkbeds in the cottage as it is stated and pictured. Thats is where it got a little crazy with sleeping arrangments. We had one couple (husband and I) 2 woman and 1 guy. We thought we had it all planned out until we got there Friday night at 10:00 PM after driving 5 hours from NH :( It all worked out in the end but this should be edited so it doesn't say bunks beds in the description of the cabin.

I loved how close this place was to Mountain Creek. It took us about 10 minutes to get there. After running a 13+mile Spartan race up the mountain, the last thing we wanted was a 45 min drive back to a hotel room.

I would recommend this cute cottage to anyone!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks Larissa, I'm glad you guys had a great time !!! A while back I had removed all text in the ad regarding the bunk beds which have been replaced with a full sized bed with a memory foam mattress. I didn't realize I forgot to remove the photo of the bunk beds which I have now done. Thanks for pointing it out to me!

A wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were more than pleased with both the accomodations and the graciousness of both the homes owner and property manager. Mr. Collins made sure that when we arrived, all of our needs were met and answered any questions that we had. Polly, the property manager, kindly allowed a late check out so that we could enjoy the morning snow tubing. The home is well equipped, clean, and inviting, very close to Mountain Creek. Another plus is that they allow pets, and have a fenced backyard so our dog could play with our childeren. I would, and have reccomended this property to friends and family. Thanks again for a wonderful stay and we look forward to visiting again in the near future.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We arrived friday night and stayed till sunday early morning, It is a beautiful home and property! The home itself is cozy and very well equipped, full kitchen bathroom and 3 lovely bedrooms, a beautiful backyard that we didnt get a chance to use this time but hopefully next time. Our group really enjoyed the home so much that we decided to order in and stream movies through the provided services and play video games on the PS3 instead of dining out! The location is perfect next to everything we needed for our short stay. Everytime we went out for activites and returned to the house it felt like we were coming home! 100% this will be our go to home when visitng Mountain Creek or even just getting away from all the noise in NYC, I'd imagine its even more beautiful during the spring/summer! Michael was very accommodating and such a easy and nice person to communicate to and Polly was lovely as well. We enjoyed our stay very much. Look forward to our return sometime soon If I can help it. 100% I will recommend this to anyone who wants to stay in this area.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

The landlord is very organized and responds immediately to our needs. The house was very clean and fully furbished with everything that we needed. We were there to ski and it was only a few minute drive to and from the house.

We were 6 friends staying overnight for 3 nights, would definitely recommend!

An autumn week at Highland Lakes

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I chose Michael's cottage based upon two criteria: it's proximity to NYC and the fact that it's pet friendly! We always try to book a property that is easy for our daughter to drive to from NYC and spend a long weekend with us. The Highland Lakes cottage worked perfectly. Thanks to the cleaning expert, Lisa, for having the home spotless upon our arrival. Thanks to Michael for excellent lines of communication throughout the entire booking process as well as once we arrived on site. Polly, the property manager, lives nearby and is there also if you happen to require assistance with anything. That being said, we found everything in and around the home to be exactly as described. The home's layout is nice. The beds are comfy. My husband especially enjoyed the large flatscreen t.v. We cooked meals indoors as well as grilling out on the gas grill. The fully fenced yard afforded us privacy while on the patio or around the firepit, as well as allowing us to have the dog enjoy the grass all week. If you require a washer/dryer they are available also. We visited a nearby state park, went to a few wineries and an apple orchard in the area. The grocery store is a very short drive away in Vernon. Paesanos pizza is excellent by the way! So thank you Michael for helping us have a wonderful stay and being available to answer any and all of our questions. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your home.
