The Alvarez Family

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay. The cabin was so charming and equipped with everything you possibly would need. The views of the lake and sunsets were amazing. I could sit on that covered porch all day and just stare at the view and be very happy. Andrea and Ken were so helpful and welcoming. The use of the boats was such a special bonus when traveling with teenagers! Highly recommend and will definitely be back!

Cabin on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful relaxing time during our weeklong stay. The sunsets were amazing over the lake and the daily kayak trips around the lake were great. It's a perfect location close enough to the Cape and Plymouth but far enough away to enjoy the solitude. We will definitely be back. Thank you Andrea for being so Attentive and also for the "welcome muffins"!!!

Tranquility and Charm

  • 5 of 5

This lovely cottage is from a time gone by. It is set on a peaceful, sandy lane surrounded by pine and oak woods, and lots of walking trails. The interior has been carefully and lovingly restored to reflect the era in which the cottage was built. The views of the lake from inside are beautiful. The setting is so peaceful that it's more reminiscent of Maine or New Hampshire. Time takes on a new dimension--one of leisurely meals, good conversation, and enjoyment of the outdoors--even though the house is just three miles from route 3! Andrea and Ken, the owners, are kind and generous people, and their house and all its amenities (canoes, comfy porch furniture, a hammock, etc.) reflect this. Thank you for sharing such a unique and lovely house!

I absolutely loved my stay.

  • 5 of 5

The owners Andrea and Ken are great. This cottage is secluded but you still are close to nearby shopping and attractions. The sunsets are beautiful. We would highly recommend.

Great place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

My brother and I stayed here for a week recently. Andrea and Kenny are the greatest! We took the boat to the island exploring, sat on the porch and watched the sunsets, but it was a little too cool to lay in the hammock this time of year. The owners provide all needed amenities. Can't say enough about our stay. We would be happy to stay here again. Quaint cottage reminded me of being on Walden Pond or "On Golden Pond". Thank you both for the wonderful vacation.

PS: I'm missing my steamed clams already, I'll have to hurry back to that neck of the woods.

Fabulous family weekend!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific weekend and absolutely loved the cabin and the location. It is "away from it all" yet within striking distance of places in the area that we wanted to visit! The property is cleane and well maintained and we were very comfortable. The color of the trees that weekend made for a spectacular view from the front porch on our 1st morning (we arrived at dusk) and we toured the lake in the owner's kayaks and canoes prior to heading out to see the local sights. Upon return that evening we built a fire in the fire pit at the edge of the water and enjoyed the stars and the cool evening. The property owners are particularly helpful and friendly which we deeply appreciated because we are not from that region and needed advice regarding restaurants, etc. We would highly recommend this property and wished we lived closer to visit the area more often!
