Such a Relaxing Long Weekend at the Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We can't wait to come back for another visit. Awesome views, peace and quiet, and lots of beautiful wildlife to view. The deck was our favorite part of the house, where we used the loungers to read and the table for our meals (candlelight in the evenings). Kitchen is well equipped with everything we needed (no dishwasher, but it was fun to wash and dry together for a change). We slept like logs every night. It's near a boat ramp for you to use. It's also near the state park for hiking and/or biking.

Great location on the lake - loved the quiet cove. Very peaceful. Great views from the deck.

  • 4 of 5

Well-stocked but small kitchen. Comfortable living area. Bring lots of towels because there is no washer and dryer. For a family of 4 it was a bit cramped but all the beds were comfortable. But nothing detracted from our week. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this cabin and on SML. One rainy/overcast day we went into Bedford and toured the National D-Day Memorial. That was well worth the trip. We rented a pontoon boat from Mitchell's for three days and really enjoyed that. Very easy to get in and out of the dock.

Really good value

  • 4 of 5

Cabin was great; boat dock very nice. Worked pretty well for two wheel chair bound guests inside and on the deck

It would not take much $ or effort to "ramp" the front entry of one or two cabins so there are no big bumps going in/out.

The worst issue for me was unloading/loading. Trailers don't fit on the "one way at a time," access road. My cabin "neighbors" were very understanding while I unloaded but there's no way that traffic can get by when there's a trailer and vehicle on the access road.

There's a no trailer sign but you don't see it until you're pretty committed to the access road. It took me an extra two hours to ferry my equipment and gear from cabin to parking lot.

Overall a great stay it just threw me a couple curves I wasn't expecting

The best experience and most-peaceful spot, with a breathtaking scenery! Joan Foster is wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the quaint accommodations! It was a graduation, honeymoon, and first vacation all in one! The owner Joan Foster was very helpful and allowed us to bring our Shih-tzu which made it feel like home. Everything was provided and there were instructions for everything, and Joan was always there if we had any questions. It was the most-homey of a cabin and the rates were well below most others. Everything was well-maintained and up to date. We went fishing and saw incredible wildlife, it was beautiful! We already booked the place for another ten days next year. It is the best place to go to get away from it all! We will never forget our time there at Cabin #7! Thank you so much Joan Foster! The Kocsis Family

Beautiful views and close to state park.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was quaint and in a wildlife preserve. Enjoyed seeing the birds and wildlife. The dock was very nice. It was a great get away! Would definitely go there again! We really enjoyed being able to bring our dog. He had such a great time swimming and seeing all the deer! The kitchen was well stocked and we cooked and grilled almost every night. (FYI we got a list of amenities and it was supposed to have a coffee grinder. Bought great coffee beans and then were unable to use them because there was no grinder!) The one downside was the cottage is in need of a few upgrades. The tub didn't drain well, so you're standing in water while you shower. Very few electrical outlets and the owners used the multi plug adapters everywhere, including on an extension cord. Big fire hazard! Needed more explanation on how to use the direct tv. We're unable to access the wifi for the first 3 days. Not sure why but the cottages wifi wouldn't come up as an option on our phones or iPad . Overall, a very nice cottage!
