Located in the center of town on Outlook Avenue, Wesmillin Cottage has everything you need to relax and enjoy the child-friendly village, the wonderfully clean, majestic river and the unhurried pace of life that this lush, waterful place—affectionately nicknamed America’s Eden—has not forgotten.

And how can you beat outdoor movies on summer nights in a converted 19th century revival shed three blocks away?

PERFECTLY WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5
This cottage surpassed our expectations for a rental. It was impeccably decorated, extremely clean and central to everything. My 12 year old son was even able to sign up for sailing school at the TIP Yacht club which was about an 8 minute walk from the cottage. We loved the screen porch, had a family dinner out there every night, moon lit walks along the pavilion dock and yummy trips to the "Guzzle" for ice cream. If you are looking for modern amenities in a gorgeous cottage atmosphere, this cottage has it all. We look forward to returning again next year!

AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful experience at this cottage. It is everything as described in the listing and more! Our 2 1/2 year old daughter loved how close we were to the playground/guzzle (ice cream parlor). The front porch is to die for :) Nothing but rave reviews for this vacation rental. Thank you for allowing us to stay. We loved our time in TI Park.

CRISP, CLEAN AND PRETTY!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just had our first baby 3 months prior to our stay in this lovely cottage, so you can imagine it was very important to us to find a place that was peaceful, CLEAN and cozy, and we found just that in this charming River home! We had a truly wonderful week, we felt like we were right at home! The owners thought of everything, we had all that we needed and more to enjoy a relaxing and restful stay, also, everything was clean, tidy and organized and the owners were very accommodating and easy to reach if we needed anything. I particularly loved the aesthetic of this cottage; it was like right out of a magazine, very crisp and pretty. The cottage it directed toward the hotel parking lot, so you will be first in line for yummy baked goods from the bake shop, and it is a 2 min walk to the Guzzle for ice cream! I would definitely recommend a stay to anyone who would like an enchanting, stress free week at the River!

THE FLYNN FAMILY

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at this cottage. The cottage was even nicer than it appeared in pictures with lots of comfortable furniture inside and plenty of seating on the front porch as well. It was very clean upon our arrival and having vacationed at TIP several times before, having such a nice washer/dryer and a dishwasher was fantastic. It also had very nice bedding and linens, which is not the norm at most cottages. As one family on a very large extended family reunion trip, the cable TV was also a big hit since we were there during the summer Olympics. The location within the park is terrific with a great spot to keep an eye on the line at the "Back Door Bakery" on Friday afternoons as well as a quick trip to the Guzzle for ice cream. Aside from the freakishly hot weather the first few days we were there, the cottage was very comfortable with window fans and ceiling fans throughout. If a few more windows were able to open it would make those infrequent hot days more comfortable. We would absolutely return to this property and recommend it to friends as well. Our kids were thrilled with the new mini-golf course on the way into Clayton and as usual we enjoyed our time at Maze Land.

VERY NICE!

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful front porch, with warm morning sun and cool evening breezes. My bed was very comfortable, though the upstairs bedrooms were small. The downstairs, master bedroom was wonderful and spacious.I found the cottage to be in mint condition, and loved the included linens and numerous plush towels.
The dishwasher and washer and dryer were great!
A couple of small things .that might be improved upon:
More hooks on doors and in the bathrooms; a few more kitchen utensils (large serving spoons, pasta server)
The slats under one of the twin beds kept coming loose, and it looked like another one was needed.
It would have been good to be able to open a few more windows, though my own second floor bedroom was ideal, with both and open screened window, window fan, and ceiling fan--all much appreciated.
The place was very clean and well-maintained. And I would not hesitate to stay there again, very happily!

SUE (SYRACUSE, NY)

My husband, son, daughter in law and grandson spent a wonderful week at TI Park. We first started vacationing there when our son was 3 mos. old. This trip, per his wish, was his Christmas present. It was a joy to bring our 3 yr. old grandson to many of the places we had taken his father. The cottage is centrally located and just minutes walk to everything in the Park. The owners, in the short time they've owned the property, have put much work into it. In talking to the shop owners, and telling them where I was staying, they all remarked on the improvements that have been made. Having a 3 year old along, it was an added bonus to have a fully stocked kitchen and a grill, cutting down on the number of meals eaten out. Don't miss out on dinner at the Wellesley Hotel (excellent), ice cream at the Guzzle and swimming at the Cove. If you're a reader, the library has a tremendous selection of new novels and children's books. Oh, if you see everyone lining up at the the back of the Hotel from 1:00-2:30 Friday and Saturday, join the line for some terrific baked goods. And, if you're looking for a relaxing fun filled vacation, don't miss out on TI Park and this lovely cottage.
