Why Shirley McAfee Vacation Rental Expert chose Oakham

I found this property at a yard sale 26 years ago and immediately knew this was my home. I rented with option to buy just two weeks after discovering this property and have put all my love and time into this property while raising my son Spencer here. We have shared our beautiful oasis with guests from all over the world. We are grateful for people to experience this wonderful space.

                                                        We had a wonderful time. We already booked for next year! We have 7 kids and they all enjoyed staying here. Shirley was a lot of fun we enjoyed visiting with her and Ziggy.

                                                        Hi, Shirley

                                                        We loved the cabin,but was not happy about the canoes,boat & kyaks, 1 had a hole in it,1 missing the seat,and 1was full of water, and so dirty they did not wont to touch it, I was ok with paying $15,50 to rent because you told me that we would have boats for us to use, we rent on a lake because when my husband gets up in the morning, and by 6:30am, he will go on the water in the canoe, he look's foreword to that every day why on vac.and he could not do that this year, I did ask a few times,if we should bring are own,and I was told NO we have everything, and you DID NOT, we also never found the flower garden or saw a waterfall, and because you did not have canoe's, we will not take a change to rent from you again.

                                                        Liz M.

                                                        This was one of my best vacations. For my family, it was a local vacation but I don't remember ever being so relaxed. The location is so peaceful. I would recommend this adventrue to anyone. Lot's fresh air, biking, swimming, laying in the hammock with not a care in the world. The house is very comfortable and kid friendly. It was so good we are doing it again this year!

                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                        Thank you Liz for being our guest! You and your family were a joy to have. I look forward to having you back for the July 4th holiday Shirley

                                                        BEST VACATION EVER! relaxed revived renewed!!!

                                                        Rachael D.

                                                        This place is not for everyone...only the people who are willing to let go, open up and engage in the enchantments of a pine grove, a breath of fresh air, and a New England lake filled with mirror images from the sky...a place to unwind and LIVE AGAIN! I spent 5 days at the Waterfall house with my 3 children...we practiced the art of doing nothing, playing and appreciating our family...we looked into a midnight sky of stars that reached beyond the universe, and captured what we came to find there.... EACH OTHER!!!! Thank-you Shirly for your hospitality. You are a diamond in the rough!! (Juliana age 8~ It was awesome! )
