The photographs don't do justice to this gorgeous cabin, full of retro furniture and period pieces, it feels like a step back in time. Beautifully clean and comfortable, with everything you need, including a decently kitted out kitchen unlike so many rentals. The covered deck has a splendid view and keeps the whole space mosquito free. The area is very peaceful. And I was amazed how warm the lake was! The cottage is part of a friendly lakeside community and Ray and Susan are on hand next door should anything go wrong.
My wife and I along with our two young grandchildren spent a wonderful week here. The kids got to swim and play. They also had their fun private room in the loft. The cabin is much roomier then the pictures show. It has an open floor plan which is further enhanced by a wrap around porch that attaches on two sides of the cabin. The beach is private and there was a canoe as well as a boat provided. There is also a dock that the kids enjoyed and my son got to fish from. Also the view is quite nice from the screened in porch.
Ray (owner) was quite nice. When I asked him what I should do if the grill runs out of gas, he said "No problem, just call me and I'll bring over another one and change it". I mean like WOW, how's that for being neighborly. If circumstances permit we shall book in 2015 for sure. Thank you Ray and Sue, it was quite a fun time for us.
Three of us came here for a quick weekend trip from New York City for a bachelor party. We didn't have much of a plan, but the beautiful towns of Athol and Orange has lots to offer, and the lake house has choice proximity to all kinds of things.
The lake is listed as a pond, but I'm not sure why, because this sucker is DEEP and CLEAN. The owner has a small floating dock that we used for very bachelor-esque things such as manly cannon balls and football tosses.
The kitchen is completely stocked. The beds are comfortable. The shower was very warm, but we only took one shower at the end of the trip, because we are really macho guys. The owner has an awesome row boat that we took out late in the evening for some full moon howling! The wrap-around screened-in porch is a nice bonus, and a working grill and fireplace round out the experience. This house is an authentic vestige of an old lakefront community. Beautiful rustic wood floors and walls, and the furniture and decor is full of charm and function. It's like going back to the 40's!
The towns of Athol and Orange have awesome ice cream and hot dog stands, antique shops, old downtowns, and there even is a drive-in movie theater 20 minutes north, just over the New Hampshire border. A lot of parks and nature preserves are just miles away. Hiking, swimming, boating, you name it. But don't forget you are staying on a private lake, 30 feet away.
Finally, the owners were very open and inviting. Very sweet people. They answered all my questions. The house was very clean, the transaction very smooth, and we can't wait to go back.
