I contacted Dave back in February of this year about the availability of the Dylan Cottage for two nights in June when we were planning to attend my nephew's wedding. He was not only prompt and helpful in getting back to me, but he was also very funny as he periodically regaled me with stories through e-mail about getting through one of the worst winters ever experienced in New England. Dave and his wife MaryBeth are not only some of the nicest and gracious people we have ever met, but the whole complex is a real gem. They have obviously put a lot of thought into the entire set-up, and being located on Great East Lake is a bonus as the water is very clear and clean. We loved staying in the Dylan Cottage. It was tastefully decorated, very comfortable, and clean and had everything we needed. Plus we loved the screened-in porch! The cottage and property are well cared for, and we highly recommend staying here as it's such a relaxing and enjoyable place. We do have two regrets: the first is that because we were so busy with wedding activities, we did not have the time to take advantage of the kayaks and SUPs (and the boat ride with Dave); and the second is that we did not stay longer. However, the good news is that when we come back to visit my brother and his wife, we have a wonderful place to stay!
