My husband and I spent a week with our two dogs in this lovely spot as it was located within a short drive of our son's family. We were looking for a vacation type rental since we live a two day drive away and don't get to see them often. We have rented lake front homes across many states in the NE and rate this the best one ever. The home itself is rustic but modern with comfortable furnishings. What was surprising for us was how well equipped it came not only with good quality cookware, table wear, and dish and laundry supplies but also with all paper products needed like paper towels, tissues, toilet paper and dinner napkins, and trash can liners which are things you don't usually get with a rental. Linens and towels were provided and were very nice. We felt like the house was supplied with the user in mind; good reading lights, AC and heat when needed, wi fi, satellite TV, and then as a bonus a huge supply of games, puzzles and books. Literally you only needed to bring your food items (and as a recommendation) your favorite sharp knife if you like to cook.
The setting was absolutely gorgeous with a huge open yard area with places set up for horseshoes, badminton, tether ball and ping pong. All supplies were in the common cottage and included the addition of wiffle ball, bocce ball, life preservers and maps of local attractions. The beach was sandy with shallow walk out for little children but also available was a floating dock and floats. Five boats added to the water fun with canoe, kayaks, row boat and sailboat. No matter the weather, you would find it hard to be bored here.
The location is a little remote, but still within 20-30 minutes of good restaurants, grocery stores and golf. The road behind the property is wonderful for jogging, there is a great hike up Mt Cube (part of Appalachian trail) less than a mile away, and road surfaces are hilly but good for cyclists.
We had fun, our dogs loved the freedom to run and play, the manager was helpful and available to answer questions and meet any needs we had, and our son's family felt like they had a little vacation by staying with us for a few days. We will return next year for sure!
