  • 4 of 5

As above plus: owner listened attentively to our concerns about cleanliness. Overall thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Renter must bring own soap, laundry deteregent, kitchen wraps and bags, some paper goods. Several stores for supplies nearby. Sunsets from the porch! Very relaxing but many historical sites nearby.

Owner's Response: We did everything we could to try to please these ladies. Each concern, and there were many ......, was addressed immediately. In the end, I offered to return the entire cleaning fee, which solution it turned out, was entirely to their liking. In an effort to be sure that the cottage is the "right fit" for each prospective guest, I send a very detailed account of everything that the cottage comes equipped with including specific furniture, kitchen utensils and paper products. What is listed is what is included. Items not included such as tinfoil, saran wrap, soap, laundry detergent, etc should be considered not included. We're glad that the ladies enjoyed their stay but are wondering, if perhaps, this was not the "right fit" for them.

Wonderful Lakeside vacation for a family

  • 5 of 5

We had a amazing vacation at the cottage. There is a private beach with swimming, kayaking and a fire pit on the beach and its just 30 steps from the house. You wake up in the morning, open the french doors to the lake view and can sit on the deck or walk down to the sandy beach, sit in the Adirondack chairs and drink your coffee. The whole family kayaked, chased frogs, fished and swam. We visited Plymouth for all the tourist attractions and dinner some nights but then came "home" to our peaceful cabin to watch tv, sit by the fire or play cards and board games on the deck. The cottage in off on the woods but was less than 10 minutes to Plymouth attractions and even closer to stores, restaurants, bank. I would recommend to anyone is looking for a lake cabin vacation. Ken stopped by to make sure we were fine but did not intrude on our vacation at all. Really a great vacation!

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at the cottage. It was clean, quite and peaceful. The location was perfect, just far enough away to seem like NH but close enough to everything! The pond was beautiful, water crystal clear. We enjoyed swimming, kayaking and just sitting by the fire sipping a glass of wine. Andrea and Ken the owners were wonderful and very attentive to any requests we had.

Super grateful!

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!
