words can't describe how amazing this place was

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place to start my day befor I became mrs. Pereira.

There was plenty of room for my wedding party and my hair stylist and makeup artist.

I could only wish this was my home.

the home was clean, inviting, easy accessable. I used the home on my wedding day. The girls all got ready there and as we got all pampered we enjoyed the views of the water and colchester marina.

Cathy was quick to respond and was NOT over baring with crazy cottage rules like other cottages (home owners) we rented from for our special day. Which was perfect.

The only bad thing was the lady from across the way was not happy with the vehicles parking on the road near her home.. only vehicles that were around were the hair and makeup girls and my mothers car.

I could go on and on but amazing place would rent again in a heart beat and would recommend this place to anyone looking for an amazing peaceful get away.

Beautiful and peaceful spot, overlooking the lake

  • 5 of 5

We brought our son and his family. It was a perfect location, offering swimming, bike riding and just relaxation. All loved it.

Wonderful Oasis

  • 5 of 5

The property is very well appointed. The pictures give an accurate refection but cannot fully convey the peacefulness. The sunroom was where we spent the majority of our evenings socializing, watching the sun set, listening to the waves crash in and playing twister :-) The beds were clean, crisp and comfortable. Cell phone service is limited but there is WiFi which was a surprise to us. Nice if you want that quick check in. I cannot say enough good things about this property. Our visitors from Ireland thoroughly enjoyed their relaxing stay.

Great Little Gem!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a quick weekend getaway (adults and 2 kids under 10). The house is really nice and clean, kitchen is well stocked, view is phenomenal!

Everyone had a great time and we all enjoyed how quiet and peaceful it was.

The only thing that tried to spoil the weekends were insects, so have bug spray handy.

Lake is pretty, but not suitable for swimming (there was a warning about high bacteria level). Lake is perfect if you have a boat.

Will keep the property in favorites!

PS Respond time of the owner is great- quick and very efficient. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Hi Izabela, I'm glad that you liked the house and found plenty to do. A real shame that the beach was closed due to the high bacteria levels. It only happens occasionally, every thing is open and safe again now. Hope to see you back again soon Cathy

Beautiful house in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

The house is gorgeous. Very clean. The view is amazing. A peaceful getaway with lots to do in the near vicinity. A few days away from the hustle and bustle of life was just what the doctor ordered. Three bunnies in the neighborhood were fun to watch too.
