Great place with great hosts!
"What a great vacation home with incredible views of the lake. Our family visited for a few days to escape the horrendous winter in western NY. The house had everything we could need and Kathy and Spike were the most hospitable hosts I have ever met. Our children and dog loved the lake and the spaciousness of the house and property. Thank you for a great mini-vacation and we definitely look forward to returning sometime soon. Unfortunately, we did not have a chance to take a fishing trip, but that will hopefully be in the plan next time. Once again, many thanks and take care until next time."

"Alford's Getaway was everything we wanted for a great week at the lake. We had visited SML last spring and stayed at a fine house on the lake but everything took a long time to get to. Alford's is close to everything you need by either car or boat. Highly recommend renting a boat from one of the nearby marinas and using the available dock (this is not a must though as swimming, kayaking or lounging is great right off the dock). The house, as mentioned in other reviews is immaculate and nicely decorated inside and out. The owners are great to deal with and very accommodating. On the 2nd day I messaged Betty that the grill was not getting hot enough - looking for a trick or some adjustment to make. We were amazed when the Alfords showed up in a few hours with a BRAND NEW 5 burner grill!!!! I couldn't recommend Alford's Getaway any higher. We had 2 sets of teenagers in our group and everyone had a great time.....the only problem was having to leave at week's end."

"House was comfortable, spacious and well cared for. The owner was very responsive and helpful. The stairs to the dock were steeper than we thought from the pictures, but the fabulous dock was worth it! My only suggestion would be for a safety rail for the upper bunkbed in the downstairs bedroom."

"We were an extended family of 9 (active grandparents 78 and 82 yrs. old), 50+ old son and 2 teenage boys and daughter, son-in-law in late 40's and 2 teenagers. The house was very pleasant, clean and well equipped. The teenagers had a great time as they are very active - loved jumping off the dock and having the whole basement area to themselves. Wi-fi was great! My daughter and son enjoyed cooking in the well-equipped roomy kitchen and we could all eat together at the adjacent table in the kitchen. My husband and I enjoyed the screened in-porch off the living room where we could be outside but comfortable. The air conditioning was a life-saver as it was a particularly hot week. The bedroom situation was a little odd as to get to the downstairs bedroom you had to go through the bathroom. I (the grandmother) had a hard time with all the stairs, particularly going to the lake as the way down was long and steep and there was no railing on the stairs. There was also a very long wooden walkway which led to the dock. The dock area was very nice and you could sit out of the sun on the lower deck while the teenagers jumped from the top. I would be particularly concerned for young children negotiating the steep stairs. The beach was non-existent and the ladders not deep enough for me to go in and out of the water comfortably so I never got to go in. I will say that I was not familiar with the SML area and most of the houses have a steep access to the lake. Having to bring all the sheets and towels was somewhat a problem and would be particularly so for anyone flying in from afar. Luckily we had a van and drove up from Florida so could bring the 7-8 sets of sheets and pillowcases and 20+ towels. I have rented a number of houses through this and similar sites and always had linens provided; this may not be the case for this particular area. We rented a large pontoon boat with tube to pull the kids and everyone enjoyed it. Grocery shopping is nearby as was the boat rental. We all had a great time."
