Quiet and quaint island retreat

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just spent a week at Ralph's house on Wartleberry Island and had a lovely time. The house is vintage, but has everything you need for a great vacation. The fish off the dock were plentiful and hungry and the high bush blueberries kept our 6 year old busy for hours.

Consider renting a boat for your stay at the nearby Melvin Village Marina, the dock on the island was perfect for the 19ft boat we rented but we wouldn't go any bigger. And be sure to buy your worms at the 19 Mile Bay convenience store.

Cozy & Convenient

  • 4 of 5

Although a little dated, this cabin was great for what we needed. The owner was very nice to work with. The location was perfect for fishing all around, and the cove was great for anchoring so we could swim, kayak, & float. Ideal for kids!

Perfectly situated on a quiet, beautiful island.

  • 4 of 5

16 Whortleberry is comfy and spacious with just the right amount of accoutrements: Wifi, A/C, washer/dryer if needed, movies, and a local tv station for news (if you even want to know...). The kitchen had everything we needed to make our meals, including a Whortleberry pie for dessert! Not a fancy kitchen, but who wants to spend time in there with the loons calling right in front of you! The front porch is perfect, but needs some nice Adirondack chairs our some cushioned, comfy furniture for lounging and curling up with your favorite book.

We didn't use the boats, kayaks and a canoes available, as we have a pleasure craft and explored the lake with it.

If you follow the lake path tucked behind the canoe, there's a footbridge and a perfect little sandy beach with enough room for your beach chair and your feet soaking in the warm July water.

Would we go back? We're already talking about next year. A resounding yes from humans and canine alike.

Quaint, quiet, relaxing vacation spot

  • 4 of 5

Good sized roomy cottage with great cell service, free wifi and local use of a telephone.

Lots of fresh blueberries (called whortleberries) were available for picking. Ducks and loons all around. Quiet enough to hear the loon calls morning and night. Spectacular views of mountain, islands and lake area. Dock that has protective rubber to protect your boat. Nature walks around the house showcased coral sticks and indian pipe plants which are usually seen only in natural settings. Safe place for kids, adults and/or families with games, puzzles and loads of VCR and DVDs for rainy days. We enjoyed our entire week!
