Nice Little Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Everything we needed for the weekend except for food and clothing was in the cottage. The kitchen was fully equipped, including a waffle iron, and coffee maker.

The bedrooms are small but adequate, and we used a fan which came with the cottage to keep the bedrooms cool at night when we slept.

Towels and linens were provided with the cottage, so no need to bring along towels unless you want them for use on the beach.

The property is adjacent to a canal which leads into Otsego Lake. The canal is suitable for boats, but not swimming. For swimming there is the county park with a beach nearby , as well as the state park and a public beach.

Our deposit was returned a week after we vacated the cottage.

Clean but smells like cat urine

  • 3 of 5

I think the air freshener was creating the unpleasant odor because it started to smell better when we unplugged it. Overall is was a comfortable stay and we enjoyed the peace and quiet.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The cabin is very clean, with a open floor plan. The cabin is located in a very private setting, which is a plus. It was only minutes away from all the major stores and restaurants. We did walk into the cabin to a very strong smell, which turned out to be Gas. Discovered that the pilot light on one set of the stove burners was not lit. I would recommend that the care taker, checks those before and after any every rental. You need to include instructions for the TV, never did figure out how to get any local channels. Everything was hooked up for the antenna, but wouldn't work. Other then that everything was Great.

Clean, cute, new upgrades but....

  • 4 of 5

PRO- Very clean. Looks like new everything from silverware, appliances, master mattress, towels. Loved the front load washing machine!!! The towels are so thick and new that it took several rounds in the dryer- so note that on check out day. It was a pleasure to use the kitchen. Window AC worked just fine. Property owner really tried to make this place nice.

CON- Got "No Signal" on TV. Called property manager but got no return call. The exterior photo on website is very misleading. This property is quite far down the canal from the lake. The bunkroom is unusable by adults as other reviews noted. Behind a curtain one foot from the bunk is the hot water heater and water treatment system. Really disliked the plug-in air freshener (Airwick). Had to remove it and stow it in a bathroom drawer. Made everything smell- even our pillows, clothes and hair.
