Guestbook Comment

  • 5 of 5

This is a late posting from february school vacation,2005, that i never got a chance to comment on like i wanted.I could not say enough good about our stay at the cottage. we had a great time and the kids hated to go home. the cottage was very nice ,the homeowners were wonderful to deal with and did everything possible to make sure all was the way it should be for the stay. The snowmobile trails were 100 ft away and groomed to perfection,ice fishing right outside your door,skiing not too far away as well.Snowmobiliers make note this is a great place to go,many day trips right from your door. Thank you for a great time and hope to do it again .The Silva family.

The property was well maintaned and quite adequately supplied.

  • 4 of 5

We like to cook and were able to do so comfortably. The house was indeed cosy and clean. The bathroom issue was a little tight when 8 people are there but we managed. The pond is lovely and clear and we enjoyed the boat and canoe and Mike's rides. Overall every one loved the week and would return. Thank you both.

Great summer vacation spot!!

  • 5 of 5

The Bracketts are great owners to work with. The Gray camp is perfect for our family. My family has been coming here for many years. When my kids were young we started coming to Worthley Pond. We took a break while our kids were in college (tuition payments made vacations difficult). But we have been back for three summers in a row now and it has been fantastic. It's right on the water- swimming and fishing are easy. It has a great camp fire spot. We have a fire as any nights as the weather will allow. They consider pets. Our lab loved the camp but he died before we started coming back. My daughter and her husband have a dog who comes with us now. She's not much of a swimmer but she loves to hang with the fisherman on the dock. And this year our new grandson who was 6 weeks old came for the first time!! There's not a lot to do around the area but if you like your vacation to be swimming, fishing, canoeing, and relaxing it is the perfect spot! we plan to be back again next year!!
