Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We own two cottages at Vineyard Lake, and have enjoyed the lake for many years. Our two children, ages 22 & 27, have many fond family memories at the lake. We call it our "little piece of heaven"!

Why the Owner Chose Brooklyn:
The cottage has been a convenient & relaxing family retreat. The lake is shallow & clean - perfect for all ages! It's a great place for swimming and plenty of quality family time!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Other than just relaxing at the lake, one of the things we enjoy most are the beautiful sunsets and relaxing by the fire at night. Roasting marshmallows & making smores have become a tradition. Older kids love climbing the ladder up to to the sleeping loft. It's a great area where they can watch movies and play cards or board games - like their own "clubhouse"! Overall this is a fun family get-away!
