This was our second time staying at Loon Cottage and it was as just as perfect as the first time. The cottage was warm and cozy. The Watsons had contacted us beforehand to check on our arrival time so that the furnace could be turned up and the lights turned on. Thanks Bev and Gordon. You know we'll be returning yet again.

Great place. Loved being on the water. Everything as expected

  • 5 of 5

Gordon and Bev were great hosts. Enjoyed a fire in the fire pit by water and also grilled out. We loved their house.

Almost Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I was mostly in touch with Bev who was very responsive! Couldn't possibly have asked for a more comfortable home to relax in, far enough away from it all but centrally located to everything else we wanted to do. Only unexpected part was how Very Tall and plentiful the lake weeds are so I didn't feel comfortable dangling my feet in water off the dock or swimming to the platform. This unfortunately seems to be the case close to most shoreline, at least as far as we kayaked at least an hour out of the marina to the left. However, the views both morning and evening were amazing!

Cute rental with great views

  • 4 of 5

Cute little cabin right on the water with kayaks and a fire area. Owners were nice and helpful. You are expected to clean and replace the sheets which was tough with our early leave time, and there was mildew on the shower curtain. Otherwise, we had a great stay in an awesome location!

Property well maintained with gorgeous flowers everywhere and easy access to lake.

  • 5 of 5

Clean, cozy and well equipped with full kitchen utensils, air conditioning, washer dryer etc. Also the owner Bev was warm and delightful, helpful with getting wifi set up while simultaneously very respectful of privacy. Finally, we greatly enjoyed

use of kayaks each day! One must be prepared however to commit to thorough cleaning on last day, including laundering sheets and towels. Not a problem for us , but others may not like time constraints before leaving. We loved our stay!!

Cute and Cozy Scenic Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the weekend of Labor Day and it was fantastic. The cottage was bright, clean, and welcoming with fantastic views of the Bay. Gordon and Beverly are very welcoming, pleasant, and helpful hosts. With a three year old in tow, the cottage provided plenty of entertainment for him with board games, beach toys and the lake at his toes. A short drive around the Bay and we were able to take a nice hike at Niquette Bay State Park. Another 5 minutes down the road is a nice, clean playground with picnic tables, a skate park, tennis courts, and basketball courts. Burlington is just a 15 minute drive south and has plenty of attractions and restaurants. Colchester even boasts an old school drive in theater with 4 screens - great fun for the little ones. Overall we had a wonderful stay and would definitely come back.
