Perfectly situated on a quiet, beautiful island.

  • 4 of 5

16 Whortleberry is comfy and spacious with just the right amount of accoutrements: Wifi, A/C, washer/dryer if needed, movies, and a local tv station for news (if you even want to know...). The kitchen had everything we needed to make our meals, including a Whortleberry pie for dessert! Not a fancy kitchen, but who wants to spend time in there with the loons calling right in front of you! The front porch is perfect, but needs some nice Adirondack chairs our some cushioned, comfy furniture for lounging and curling up with your favorite book.

We didn't use the boats, kayaks and a canoes available, as we have a pleasure craft and explored the lake with it.

If you follow the lake path tucked behind the canoe, there's a footbridge and a perfect little sandy beach with enough room for your beach chair and your feet soaking in the warm July water.

Would we go back? We're already talking about next year. A resounding yes from humans and canine alike.

Quaint, quiet, relaxing vacation spot

  • 4 of 5

Good sized roomy cottage with great cell service, free wifi and local use of a telephone.

Lots of fresh blueberries (called whortleberries) were available for picking. Ducks and loons all around. Quiet enough to hear the loon calls morning and night. Spectacular views of mountain, islands and lake area. Dock that has protective rubber to protect your boat. Nature walks around the house showcased coral sticks and indian pipe plants which are usually seen only in natural settings. Safe place for kids, adults and/or families with games, puzzles and loads of VCR and DVDs for rainy days. We enjoyed our entire week!
