This was our 1st experience renting a cottage at Sandy Pond and it couldn't have been any easier .Communications between us and the Whalen's were always addressed promptly and questions answered thoroughly. From the moment we arrived we knew it was going to be a great week. Dave was there to greet us and familiarize us with not only the cottage but the area as well. They checked in regularly to see if there was anything we needed and even updated us on a severe storm warning Sunday so that we would be prepared. After the storm passed they were there almost immediately to clean up the damage. As you can see from the picture, they really do take pride in their property. It was always clean and well-kept. They provided us with a personal "brochure" on area attractions and things to do. They were more than accommodating. I would recommend a Whalen property to anyone seeking a "home away from home" vacation.
