About Pat or Doug McCarthy

Doug & Pat and their sons built this house in the 80's and enjoyed it for many years and are now living in Harrisville just down the street from the lake. Pat the artist and Doug is a former teacher.

Both retired now and are busy with gardening and trying to enjoy life on the easy side!

What makes this house unique

This house has so many wonderful memories for the entire family from fishing from the docks to just sitting on the deck and enjoying the fantastic views of the water and having great barbecues on the deck. And watching our grandchildren enjoy the beach and lake as well. We designed the house so you can see the water from almost every room in the house... so you won't miss anything on the water!

A Place of Peace

  • 5 of 5

Pat is a great innkeeper. She bent over backward to make our stay as pleasant as possible. The house is well designed and functional. The view of the lake is superlative -- early morning sunrises, evening sunsets and occasional fog all cast their distinctive spells. Couple the spectacular sights with the smells of chicken or salmon sizzling off the grill and the songs of the birds floating from the trees, and what do you have? A place of peace. We shall return.

Mother/Son Weekend Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We arrived at night in the dark with a non-functioning GPS. (our owner warned of this) Following a winding lakeside road we did find our destination where the owners had thoughtfully put on every possible light in the house. Great instructions for starting the pellet fireplace and the gas stove were waiting. The open space living area was attractive and stairs led to the master bedroom suite which my son claimed. Mother took the downstairs bedroom nearer the bathroom. Plenty of bed covers. We settled in. Although the weather had turned cold,rainy and windy the house, we did get to fish and hike every day right from the house which has a dock for a boat. Life preservers were available. Some good fish were large and small mouth bass. The kitchen was well equipped and the owners had supplied bottled spring water. We used the grill one night. The weather did not permit use of the nice deck overlooking the lake. Especially enjoyable was sitting by the gas fireplace in the sun room with a morning coffee and a good book. Pat came by and we had a good chat. She gave my son a fish net and offered more information about the area . I would recommend a leaf peeping or summer visit to fully enjoy this house.

Owner's Response: We always like it when our guests enjoy themselves even when the weather is not at it's best... They were a great fishing team and and had fun catching the large mouth bass even though they didn't eat them! Hope to see you all again...

Beautiful lakefront, Great accomodations

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent a week at Pat and Doug's Lakehouse while house hunting .. Everything was clean and well maintained even the boats were put out by the dock for easy access for a quick paddle in the morning before heading out for the day. It was so peaceful hearing and seeing the loons every morning .. We had a couple of issues with the internet but Pat was very responsive and there to accommodate us with a solution, which we truly appreciated. Thanks so much for a wonderful week and giving us ideas for potential properties and dining .. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a quiet week at the lake.
