"We spent a week at this wonderful home away from home, and it was delightful! The rooftop porch on the boathouse was our favorite spot to watch traffic on the River, and it was great that it was under a roof itself, so that those of us who are sun-sensitive could get out of the sun. The view of Boldt Castle was fun, and the River was calm enough that the kids used kayaks to get around. One afternoon a neighbor even took my daughter sailing!
The house is comfortable and roomy. We loved the fact that it had lots of spaces where one could go to get away from it all for a while, but the living room and the WONDERFUL PORCH were terrific places for all of us to congregate.
The separate "apartment" was perfect for the grandparents to get a little peace and quiet occasionally. The kitchen was well equipped and easy to work in. The neighborhood was quiet, and there was plenty of good walking and good biking in the area.
But the best by far was the porch of the house and the porch on the boathouse. Those alone made it worthwhile!
One suggestion we would make would be a couple of reading lamps for evenings.
Thank you so much for sharing your lovely property with us!"

"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!"
