Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for sharing the cottage with us!

The photos don't do it justice!! (As you already know, we have booked again for later this summer- and I'm quite sure in the fall as well..)

The memories made will never be forgotten - trying to get a fire started only to have a thunderstorm knock it out-then the wind-then rain again, made for lovely sleeping at night. Your location is fantastic in relation to our favorite wineries. We typically vacation in Boston, but after a few days in this perfectly relaxing area, we think you have converted us! Thanks Again!! (I think I can survive the last three weeks of teaching Pre-K now!)

Awesome cottage, loved every moment there.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the cottage.

As soon as we pulled up, we loved it.

When we went inside we found it to be very cozy and we felt at home.

The view is amazing and the sun rise was awesome.

It was very quite even with the bands playing at the local restaurant up the road.

Walking distance to two restaurants was great.

We are looking forward to staying there again.

Thank you for letting us enjoy your home, we had so much fun.

Nice lake level view

  • 4 of 5

Truly enjoyed the cottage with everything you need. Yard great for kids and picnicking. Nice firepit and grill. Busy road in front was a concern for little children. No railing on the steps to Lake was hard for disabled to enjoy dock.

Loved our stay. Thank you!

A Rainy Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Even though we were drenched for the tree days we were here, we enjoyed ourselves immensely. The few times that the sky cleared allowed us to walk around. Fishing was enjoyed. Those that were caught were set free. The dock was a great place for that. We enjoyed the new grill. Even though it rained while we used it, we found it to be efficient. Getting into the lake was difficult because of rocks. Mobility impairment did not help either. I would have liked an easier way to get into the water. The house is very comfortable with all amenities. We thought that possibly one queen bed would be more comfortable for two people. Probably one of the doubles would still fit into that room. We appreciated the easy access to the two nearby restaurants as well. The food was good and the price was right! Thanks for everything! We hope to come again!
