  • Been coming here for years

    "My husband and I & our two teen aged sons have been renting this cottage for a week or 2 for 4 summers. We love it! The location is perfect--a stone's throw from the beach (a 90 second walk) in a quiet friendly beachy neighborhood. There is a cottage feel to the house and at the same time its so nice to have a dishwasher, and a washing machine & dryer. The beds are comfortable. The house is always clean upon arrival & renters are expected to leave it clean for the next visitors. There's plenty of parking and plenty of space to hang out inside on the rare rainy day. The clean, sandy beach is rarely crowded--our family & friends are often the only people there during the week. There are plenty of restaurants & shopping very close by, and tourist attractions all within an hour's drive, if you can bear to leave the beach. The owners are very nice & accommodating. My husband & I have been renting in the neighborhood for decades & we just love this house & location."

  • The Simple Life Defined!

    "The lake house was outstanding. Our day to day busyness and stress washed away within moments of getting to the house and seeing the amenities available and finding that the Owners had thought of everything and kept the place pristine. All the needs we could think of were there and available, the access to the lake was great, the surrounding area was a nature lovers dream, and the peace and quiet was just what the doctor ordered. Thanks to John and Rita, we will be looking forward to next year!"

  • Peace, calm, serene, beauty, intoxicating views!! Spectacular place

    "I went there for a personal retreat. I chose the rental from the internet. As soon as I entered- I felt at home. It was the perfect place for my purpose. The house immediately welcomed me. It has such an at home cozy, inviting feel. The views of the water are mesmerizing and tranquil. The neighborhood is very quiet. This house is ever so spacious and well equipped. Nothing was left out. It is huge, having 3 floors and very spacious rooms. The floor to ceil windows in the Master - superb - watching the slow water movement under the moonlight at night - then waking up to the sun and water. What a way to go to bed each night and wake up each morning. There is a certain peacefulness about this house that is felt immediately and I relaxed right into it. The house is overly supplied with anything that you may need. Typically renting cottages annually- this was different. It was a house, as stated the owners care that the stay is perfect, very clean, well kept, beautiful furnishings, inside & out, private dock & beach - which btw was perfect even this time of year. Sliders from the LR right onto the deck. Maybe 15 steps down to the beach & dock. The water was so clear that I could see the bottom. Kathy & Andrew far exceed the normal owners. The communication before & during was prompt, personable, & thoughtful. As many rentals as I have done- I have never met owners who care so much that your time at their place exceeds your expectations. They have the perfect place for families, retreats, anything imaginable. I can't state enough how welcoming the house is. This is quite a unique place. The tranquility of the house, the views, etc allowed me the time I needed to "regroup" and regain my focus. I'm not sure my mission would have been so successful had I not been at this exact house. It is a must have for any purpose. Hoping to go back this summer with my family. I don't see how anyone can go here and not return. It is just that fabulous. Did I mention the tranquility, the views, the coziness, the owners, the welcome feel of the house?? I can say without a doubt I will be back. Thank you so much Kathy & Andrew. It was a pleasure."
