About Lisa

We own two cottages at Vineyard Lake, and have enjoyed the lake for many years. Our two children, ages 21 & 26, have many fond family memories at the lake. We call it our 'little piece of heaven'!

Why Lisa chose Brooklyn

The cottage has been a convenient & relaxing family retreat. The lake is shallow & clean - perfect for all ages! It's a great place for swimming, kayaking, fishing, and plenty of quality family time!

What makes this cottage unique

Other than just relaxing at the lake, one of the things we enjoy most are the beautiful sunsets and relaxing by the fire at night. Roasting marshmallows & making smores have become a tradition. Older kids love climbing the ladder up to to the sleeping loft. It's a great area where they can watch movies and play cards or board games - like their own 'clubhouse'. Overall this is a fun family get-away!

Very nice retreat!

  • 5 of 5
Our family was lucky enough to find this lovely cottage while we were in the area for a relative's graduation party, making for a nice mini-vacation. We had a delightful time, and Lisa helped make our stay extra special by offering to take us for a ride on her pontoon boat on Vineyard Lake. The lake was very relaxing and the weather was perfect, and we loved watching the sunsets from the dock every night. My son and I also had a great time exploring the lake by kayak.

Our kids (ages 15 and 17) loved the loft area in the cottage, and we enjoyed eating dinner at the patio table in the immaculate and beautifully landscaped back yard. The cottage was well-stocked with amenities, and there were lots of movies and games to keep busy with. Lisa was very knowledgeable and helpful about steering us to the best places and restaurants to visit in the area. She really helped make it a perfect little vacation!

Perfect Relaxing Weekend!

  • 5 of 5
We got engaged at this cottage a few years back and decided to come back and stay for our first anniversary. Doug and Lisa are very accommodating, they provided a list of places to visit in the area which I found helpful. The cottage is super clean and was perfect for our stay! We enjoyed fishing off the dock and the campfire was great after a day in the sun! We'll definitely be back!

Beautiful sunsets and lovely people

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I happily “lived” in this cottage for the entire month of August. The kitchen allowed us to enjoy many home cooked meals, and the television was much appreciated on evenings, as well as on our 1 rainy day of the month. The front screened-in porch was lovely everyday, with breezes and views of any lake activity.

We used the canoe and the paddleboat on different days, to just meander around Vineyard Lake. Doug and Lisa were marvelous owners, sharing weekly information on local activities, nearby golf courses and good restaurants. Town of Brooklyn has a wonderful ice cream shop, which we probably visited too many afternoons.

The neighborhood grocery store has reasonable prices, and local laundromat is both clean and comfortable. Husband enjoyed riding numerous bicycle routes in the area, and with Lisa’s advice was able to even join an area bike group.

Recommend the cottage, and especially the owners.

Wonderful Vacation Get-Away

  • 5 of 5
The property lived up to its billing and beyond. Great for a couple with 1-4 kids; lots of sleeping room for the kids in the loft. The backyard was perfect with a grill for cooking out, lawn chairs, dining table, hammock, and a fire pit for s'mores. We ate both outside in the back yard and inside in the large screened-in dining room with views of the lake. Kitchen had all we needed. The owner provided a paddle boat and canoe as advertised, offering us the ability to explore the lake and fish. Caught smallmouth bass, rock bass, and plenty of bluegill. The boys (11 and 14) played for hours in the lake by the dock, with lots of fun water toys provided at the cottage. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thank you for sharing your vacation cottage with us.

Lisa and Doug went out of their way to make sure our stay was excellent. The cottage was very clean and comfortable; felt like I was at home. The extra special touches (such as: shampoo, tissues, paper goods, toiletries, coffee and filters, DVDs, etc) were very much appreciated. The yard was was tidy and nicely decorated. We enjoyed the paddle boat and kayak ride on the lake on Sunday afternoon. Overall, it was more than we expected and we will be back. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to experience the Vineyard Lake way of life. It could become a habit:)

Excellent hosts and beautiful quaint cozy cottage!

  • 5 of 5
Lisa was very accommodating in working with us to rent the house last minute-for which we are so grateful, because it truly is a beautiful cottage with gorgeous landscaping (better than my home!) Very quiet community on the lake, very serene and peaceful get-a-way.

The house was immaculate and rock solid. Everything you need; including dry firewood and newspapers for a campfire (have to do smore's!). We have two young boys (6yr and 4yr) and they played in the loft almost the entire time! They loved it up there.

I loved the lake, clear water and sandy bottom-no muck or smell. I enjoyed using my kayak immensely and was impressed by all the homes on the lake. There is also a county boat launch on the opposite shore with a playground for the kids.

The photos online are great, but I think it is even better in person. It is definitely cozy and I wouldn't want a larger family to try to fit in here, but it was perfect for us. I would recommend this to my friends, except I'd selfishly like to keep this little gem to myself ;)

The kitchen is stocked with all the basics including pans, plates, bowls, cups, silverware, major utensils, and salt/pepper. (No spices, condiments, or pantry staples-brought my own) There are garbage bags, trash service, dish towels, and clean linens provided but not bath towels. There is no dishwasher, but there is soap, wash cloths, and a drying rack. The fridge is spotless inside and newer looking with 5 ice cube trays in the freezer. The stove/oven was electric and was accurate and fast to heat! I didn't burn one thing ;)

The bathroom has a very generous area in front of the sink, considering the size of the house, a few emergency essentials like mini shampoos etc. and a small shower stall. Hot water is plenty warm enough, but needs to re-heat between showers :)

The dock is maybe a 30sec walk from the house and you can see and hear it from the front door. It is a long sturdy dock with a clear sandy bottom the boys actually went swimming in (in the middle of September!) but no beach, the dock is anchored to shore on a rock retaining wall. It is an all sports lake with very little traffic the weekend we were there.

That's probably too much info, but I just wanted other renters to know what a great time we had so close to home but yet felt hundreds of miles away in the quiet good life.

Thank you!
