Lake front cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome stay at this property. It is a quaint house right on the water. Our favorite room was the sunroom, even though we visited in March. Cathy was very helpful and accommodating. She even refunded my security deposit the day of our departure! We will be back.

What a thoughtfully planned vacation cottage!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful weekend and way to spend our first wedding anniversary! Cathy bought of everything a person could need during their stay so that you can arrive and just enjoy the amazing view! It was such an incredibly peaceful and relaxing escape from the everyday crazy. It was truly such a joy to be there!

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.

Owner's Response: Dear Chantel, I'm glad to hear that the cottage provided everything that you needed for your big day and you found the atmosphere to be relaxing. Thanks for letting me know about your parking problem, normally there is enough space for 3 cars in front of the garage. Thanks for leaving the house so tidy. Cathy
