Wonderful place. Fabulous river view with spectacular sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

This property is fantastic. We had a couple of issues with facilities, but the management couldn't have been more accommodating to resolve them. It was wonderful not to have to worry about bringing bedding or much of anything except our personal belongings and food supplies. Would do this again in a heartbeat!!

Beautiful location, very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The four of us very much enjoyed our stay on the waterfront at this property. Not only was it clean and comfortable, it had a spectacular view of the sunsets. Any information or assistance we needed was provided promptly by the manager. I/we highly recommend a stay at this location. Thanks Kurt (and Craig) for the great service.

Perfect in every way!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 weeks at this lovely cottage and loved every minute. The location is amazing on the river with great views, a nice dock and swimming area just out the back door and it is only a mile in to Clayton from here. The cottage was clean and comfortable with just about everything that we needed. And the landlord responded immediately when we had questions or needed something...he bent over backwards to make our stay enjoyable. Our only regret was that we were only there for 3 weeks

Best cottage with the best view!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I got married in Alex Bay and then went on a minimoon at this cottage. The view alone makes you want to ask the owners to sell to you. Perfect size bedrooms and a kitchen and a huge dining table make it worth spending time inside reading books and watching the ships go by. It's close to town so you have everything you need in a small driving distance and friendly people are everywhere.

The management company that runs it is phenomenal and only a phone call or a text away. They left us a note with instructions and the rest we easy to figure out. The firestorm put back is nice to use but we wish we could've paid extra to use the inside fireplace. I would give this place more than 5 stars but that's what I'm limited to.

Home Sweet Home

  • 5 of 5

That is what it felt like to come back for our second year at this wonderful cottage. Comfortable, cozy and with everything you need right at hand, you can't help but fall in love with this place. Well-equipped kitchen, comfortable sunroom with full view of freighters steaming by -- and even a telescope for a close=up view. Gorgeous sunsets and great firepit for nighttime, or indoors, a nice big TV/BlueRay player. And if for some reason you need something else (like an extra fan during a "heat wave"!) the property manager is right there with it. As for that gorgeous river view outside every window...home two weeks and we're still missing it! Especially in the morning when I'd really like to be drinking my coffee and watching those massive freighters slip by. ....sigh....till next time!
