  • Perfect!

    "This was our first time booking a vacation rental online. We were skeptical to trust the reviews as we know that not everything you read online is accurate. Once we began communicating with Greg, the owner, and then arrived at the the cabin and looked around, we knew right away that the reviews and comments we very accurate! We are familiar with the Pulaski area as we have camped in a nearby site for many years. With a growing family that now includes three children between the ages of four months and five years of age, we were looking to find something that felt more like home yet was far away from the regular routines of being at home. This cabin did that and more! It had all the necessities that a family with (or without) children would need and added luxuries to make it feel like we were on a vacation. It was beautifully secluded, kid-friendly, and close enough to local attractions that we could enjoy a different activity (fishing, Salmon River Falls, museums and historical attractions, etc.) each day. During our first night at the cabin, we were already thinking about friends and family that we could invite for future family vacations. More importantly, we were already considering a romantic getaway. (No kids allowed!) This cabin has all the bases covered in terms of who would enjoy a stay. From a guys hunting trip, ladies getaway (wine and relax), a couple's romantic retreat, to families with children of all ages, this cabin can meet all of your needs. To make the entire experience even better, Greg was wonderful to work with. He was flexible, easy to communicate with and trustworthy. As I mentioned, this was our first time planning a vacation using an online source. We had many questions and he was patient and willing to answer them. This proved to be a situation where the reviews were accurate and insightful. We trusted others reviews and our gut instincts. In the end, it was a great vacation and one that we won't forget!"

  • Family Reunion

    "My family got together for the first time in years at this cottage. All 11 people were comfortable and had plenty of space to get together and also to find places for smaller groups. The kitchen was great for preparing meals for a large group. We ate meals both inside and outside on the covered deck. Two kayaks added to the fun for kids and adults even though we brought our own boats. We enjoyed the dock and fire pit. All in all, a great place to stay."

  • happy, happy memories

    "Words cannot describe my great feeling of having arrived when we docked at Friendly Island. The island's gracious owner who rents her glorious place to allow others to share and experience pure joy and solitude whille breathing deeply and loving all the amenities fit for a king or queen, as they say. I loved relaxing, barbequing, swimming and having fun offering the "Queen's Wave" to the touring boat passengers and one night, listening to a rich, baritone voice singing Irish ditties, wafting over from Alexandria Bay. There was always a cool breeze at night and my stay here on Friendly Island has given me an experience with only positive vibes remaining and which I will cherish for the rest of my life. Thank you, Ellen for making Friendly Island not just a label but a reality. We appreciated all the labour and love that went into the creation of your island for all four seasons to boot."

  • Simply Magical!

    "Our vacation at Elderberry Cottage was relaxing, restorative and beautiful. I was in a party of six, myself, my husband and our children aged 6, 8, 9 and 10. Each of us was taken with the house and grounds and enjoyed the amenities provided by our gracious hosts. We spent lots of time enjoying the natural setting, kayaking the inlet, fishing galore and hanging out in hammocks or by the fire pit. The location is close to many of the area attractions with convenient access to Boldt castle and gorgeous state parks. The kitchen is well appointed and the grocery is not far at all. In fact, it is amazing how close things are because when you are on Wellesley Island, you feel far from all of the trappings of modern times. The owners were nearby if needed and helpful and even went so far as to provide passes to the Boat Museum, hints, directions and even a lesson on how to filet a fish. The cottage and grounds are immaculately kept with lots to offer in the way of down-home entertainment. You could have a great time without ever leaving the property. This vacation ranks at the top of our "favorites list" and we look forward to revisiting again in the future. That says a lot considering that pleasing six distinct personalities is no small feat!"
