SPRING Season: welcome the warming months in the mountains! Pull out the fishing pole, motorcycle, and hiking boots. Check out the apple blossoms and first crops coming out of the fields.

SUMMER Season: the farmers markets are in full swing. There's a main Street fair or county festival going on every weekend. The kayakers are on the rivers and lakes. The cyclists are on the roads. The horses are saddled up. The golfers are yelling 'fore!'

FALL Season: the evenings are cooler, the campfires are blazing and the harvest is coming off the farm. Mountain bike from the top of the ski runs, or just ride the lift and enjoy the fall foliage. Foliage runs mid September through mid Oct.

WINTER Season: the leaves are down and the mountains are still the best place to be. Skiing, snowshoeing, cross-country, tubing, snowmobiling, and ice fishing can keep you busy. Come March, watch local farmers tap trees and make maple syrup gold.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend with the family at this house. It is not your average rental property, there is an assortment of funky and cool light fixtures and a couch covered with pillows that my sister-in-law and I coveted our entire stay. We were a little disappointed that we couldn't swim in the lake, but not enough to give less than 5 stars! The lake was great for paddling around was a great backdrop for a nice relaxing weekend. Really, a wonderful place. We want to come back in the winter, thinking it will be a beautiful and peaceful place in the snow!

Peaceful & serene.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a quaint and tastefully decorated cabin on a tranquil lake. With a large farm table and all the necessary kitchen equipment (and BBQ replete with seating and a sunshade) we prepped and enjoyed meals cooked with veggies, raw cheeses and pastured meat from the local places we visited. . We spent hours on the lake - lounging in the dockside Adirondacks chairs or on the kayaks, paddle boat and rowboat. We played lawn games and relaxed in the hammock. It was better than we expected as the owner and property manager (thanks Holly!) do a great job of creating a welcoming and inviting space to gather with friends and family. We would highly recommend this as a getaway place!!!!

Peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a phenomenal stay at the cabin. We spent 4 days relaxing with our 6 year old and grandparents. We made good use of the boats to paddle around the private lake; it was one of our daughters favorite things to do. Being able to dine indoors or out was great, as was the gas grill for cooking corn-on-the-cob bought from the store in town. The property is quiet, spacious, and relaxing. The owner and manager were terrific to work with. And little things like the grocery store discount card on the house key, the nightlights throughout the cabin, and the labelled light switches were very nice.

Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Such a great getaway! Beautiful and clean house; nice layout and well decorated. Our kids had such a fun time, the paddle boat, huge covered porch facing the lake - so many highlights of the house, hard to describe them all. Upon departure the kids started to cry because they did not want to leave. Would also make a great couples escape as the house is decorated so well. Don't hesitate to book this one!
