  • Just perfect

    "I cannot say enough good things about The Coop. I was totally worn out and needed a "reset" week in a bucolic setting. This place was just perfect. A lot of attention to detail was put into the design and building of this wonderfully intimate building, and it envelops you in a restful atmosphere immediately. There is a kitchen that has all the utensils and appliances one could want, plus many extras such as spices. The electric heater is available when needed; I stayed in mid-September and needed it a few times. Wireless connectivity is spotty, so I would not recommend this for anyone who will need to use the Internet a lot. This wasn't a problem for me, however, since the whole point of choosing this place was to get away from it all. I liked the excuse to not respond to work emails! There are games and books in a large cupboard, and Phyllis and Mitch have assembled a 3-ring binder with information about local places to eat, shop, hike, and visit. One of the tremendous assets of the location is that it is at the intersection of two dirt roads that offer excellent walking hikes (I've heard these referred to as "wikes"). It was great to roll out of bed and not have to drive to another place to get in a good bit of exercise. 100 feet away from The Coop you have the choice of which road to explore, and you are off. Both roads follow old stone walls and are through mature forests. I did 1.5 hour walks every day and seeing the sun dappling down through the canopy of trees was soothing to the soul. Phyllis and Mitch were available as resources yet also let me have complete privacy. They are definitely one (two) of the selling points for this property. I invited my wife up to join me at one point, and we decided that we will be coming back to The Coop at some point."

  • Amazing home away from home..

    "We could not be happier with out stay at this house. It had everything you could possibly need and then some. Not to mention a very up to date DVD library. I found myself hoping for a rainy day to watch a few movies that caught my eye. My 5 year old son enjoyed fishing off the deck (yes right off the deck) with my husband and father in-law. He caught five fish with his first five casts....what more could a little boy hope for. Both my 5 year old and 2.5 year old enjoyed their first, second, third, etc canoe rides. We even got my mother in-law in the canoe for a ride. We made some great family memories at this location and hope to return on a regular basis."

  • Highly Recommended For Families

    "My family and I spent a week here and had all the comforts of home. We combined two families and had a range of ages from 2-50 and everyone enjoyed it. The lake itself was warm, clean and shallow enough for my 2 year old to enjoy it. You can walk out quite a ways before it starts to get deep. Our teens liked paddle boarding and floating on rafts tied to the bouy. There is no beach but the dock was great for hanging out and sitting by the water on. The bottom of the lake had soft sand which was so nice for walking around in the water. This was especially nice for my little one. There is also a fire pit outside which the kids loved making s'mores with and the adults enjoyed just as much. The house: The beds were comfy, the kitchen is beautiful with granite counter tops, wooden floors and an amazing view of the lake and sunset. You can tell the owner makes every effort to ensure his renters are happy. The garage is filled with things like rafts, a canoe, wind surfer, life jackets and other lake toys. The house is very well kept and spacious with an open concept. There were 10 of us and plenty of room for all of us. Having two bathrooms was very nice. The kids appreciated bunking up in the same room and having their own bathroom and T.V. (though we barely used the T.V.) There were even some toys in the closet. There is also a little cottage apart from the house with a double bed but, we didn't use it. The house is located on a very quiet dead end street. We scoped it out and think this has to be the street with the greatest views of the lake, mountains and sunset. Hope to go back!!"

  • Quaint, quiet, relaxing vacation spot

    "Good sized roomy cottage with great cell service, free wifi and local use of a telephone. Lots of fresh blueberries (called whortleberries) were available for picking. Ducks and loons all around. Quiet enough to hear the loon calls morning and night. Spectacular views of mountain, islands and lake area. Dock that has protective rubber to protect your boat. Nature walks around the house showcased coral sticks and indian pipe plants which are usually seen only in natural settings. Safe place for kids, adults and/or families with games, puzzles and loads of VCR and DVDs for rainy days. We enjoyed our entire week!"
