I LOVE THIS PLACE!!!! I have a family of five. We have been coming to this cabin for YEARS. Every time we arrive it feels like home, even my kids say so. The first thing I notice when I enter the home is just how clean it is. It is beyond welcoming....and the owner always leaves us a nice welcome note. He remembers details about us and is sure to make you welcome. If you are considering a rental where you just need to relax and enjoy, this really is the place. I will outline why.
First, the owner is amazing. He was, and is, so prompt in his responses. He has accommodated my family is so many ways. Everything is clear, and I had comfort in knowing exactly what I needed to do. He leaves nothing undone. He is wonderful.
I usually rent one week here and we vacation another week some place else. This last vacation, we hated leaving...and we weren't even close to anticipating our next vacation like we do our week at this cabin. So I contacted the owner THE DAY WE LEFT and asked to book TWO weeks for next year. We love it here.
As a family of five, we go go go constantly and my husband has the most stressful job. On other vacations, my kids heads are in their electronics, and my husband doesn't decompress. Here, while Michael supplies FREE wifi, cable, and anything else you would want, my kids are outside from minute one enjoying the grounds and the private pier and the pond. My husband is more excited than the kids!!!! The owner provides all the water vessels you could ever want, plus life jackets, toys, floats, etc. We are barely unpacked and the kids are canoeing and kayaking.
Michael/Owner THINKS OF EVERYTHING!!!! And if he hasn't and you have a question, he is quick to respond. Michael offers you several options in almost every situation. You don't have to clean the place, he allows you to pay for a service. Honestly though, the place is sooooo easy to clean you don't really need that service. He has everything right there to make it easy. There is a washer and dryer, dishwasher, all the kitchen utensils you could want....I cannot say enough how much we love our stay. I would leave our city life in a minute if this place could be ours.
I have been on both sides of renting. I used to own cottages in Plymouth, MA, and I have rented several places. This place is an AMAZING VALUE. You get so much for what you pay for, a pleasant experience all around.
If you can find a week open, RENT!!!
