We just came back from a week at this cottage. This was our first experience in renting a Home Away property, and Debbie (the owner of this cottage) was so helpful and friendly throughout the whole process. I communicated with her several times before our trip and she was always quick to respond with answers to my questions. We arrived at the cottage late in the evening and got out of our car to the beautiful, haunting sounds of loons on the lake. When we entered the cottage our breath was taken away...so clean and such a beautiful open floor plan! We had a baby with us and appreciated the provided high chair...and she appreciated being able to scoot around safely in her walker with plenty of room to roam. We loved the fact that we could cook and visit with one another and watch TV all in the same large open kitchen/dining/living room area. Right off the kitchen is a very nice deck with gas grill and also a fire pit. It was so peaceful to sit on the deck and look out over Embden pond and watch the little birds, chipmunks and hummingbirds at the feeders. The pond was crystal clear...the water was refreshing but not too cool. It was wonderful to just grab one of the provided kayaks and just walk a short distance across the lawn down to the boat dock right in front of the property. There are several cottages around this one, and we saw our "neighbors" at times swimming, fishing, boating, and relaxing on their decks...but it was extremely quiet and peaceful here. There are a few motorboats and water skiers on the pond but most of the time the water was calm and you saw mostly people enjoying their canoes and kayaks. All the ammenities of home are provided. The beds were comfortable. We enjoyed our stay tremendously! I would highly recommend renting this cottage to anyone! Thank you Debbie for sharing your little slice of heaven with us!
