We needed a place to stay for Thanksgiving weekend as my sisters house was too small. The house is in an amazing setting- off the beaten path on a little island. Looking out at the sun sparkling off the water in the morning had us not wanting to leave for my sisters!
The house is rustic and eclectic which we liked as it felt as if it had been the family for a while and had a history. Fantastic collection of books and two fireplaces made for cozy evenings.
It was a short stay and chilly so we did get to take advantage of everything it has to offer.
The owners are very helpful and communicative.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review, we've had many family gathering at the cottage. Our family and friends have had wonderful memories of times we have spent there, thrilled to share it with you. Hope you will return in the summer when you can enjoy the river.
Cabin of serenity
The property was very peaceful and quaint, the dock was the highlight of the property, friendly neighbors.
Thank so much for your words, I agree just sitting on the dock takes you to another place. Looking forward to your next visit.
Charming cottage in a gorgeous location
My husband and I were looking for a last minute getaway, and the owners were happy to accommodate our request. We were able to bring our dogs which was a must. The cottage is well stocked with just about anything you would need and then some. They have an extensive library of books, so you can choose one to read while lounging in the hammock or on the swing overlooking the water. Peaceful and relaxing ... just what we were looking for. The cottage is old and quirky, just like us!
Beautiful, Serene Location
Our stay at Colton's Point was magnificent. Very cozy and charming home. My grandchildren loved the pier and kayaking. We were even surprised by a fireworks show! Thanks for making all of it possible.
Overall, the family enjoyed our visit to Colton's Point. This house is an older waterfront cottage and does show it's age which is part of the character. I mean in slopping floors kind of way and obvious the structure was built on over time adding to it's charm.
PROS: The house is on a secluded spot with only 2 other houses next door. You can see the water out the back from the kitchen window and the front of the property where the dock is (in the picture). For what my family was looking for in a long-weekend, we had everything we needed. The closest grocery store is at least 15-20 min away but there is a convenience store about half that (nothing you can walk to if you need to buy anything). A canoe is available (which we did use) and some small bikes (which we did not use).
No hesitation in recommending if you are not looking for a newer house to rent. Convenience of a full kitchen and AC units in each bedroom was appreciated and the place was clean enough. Plenty of towels available.
CONS: Some obvious needed updates include replacing the crank style windows on the porch (only 1/2 of them open).There were supposed to be crab pots, but we couldn't find them to try out. And some places could use a spring cleaning (like overhead fans and book shelves for example). There was a gas grill, but only one of the three burners turned on. For my preference, I wish the owners removed more of their personal belongings out of sight and toiletries from the bathrooms. It made me feel like I was intruding.
Would recommend - but don't expect a new property. Dog friendly was important to us.
Thank you to the owners!
The veiw is very pleasing to the eye.
Other then a small hic-up, the stay was wanderful, everybody had a great time of relaxing.
