Great waterfront cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Loved this very well maintained cottage with a beautiful view of the lake. Everything one would need or want is readily available. I forgot to take my anti-gravity chair only to find that there was not one but two available for use. Large lot provides plenty of privacy. Many upgrades including a very nice, modern bathroom. Owners are VERY responsive and answer emails almost before they are sent. I would highly recommend this property to anyone desiring a lake front rental in a quiet neighborhood. Can't wait to go back next year!

Wonderful peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family thoroughly enjoyed staying at this property. We spent two weeks at the cottage while visiting family in the area. The cottage had everything we needed and more for a please trip. The Verizon Wireless service is excellent which allowed me to work remotely and even take video calls without issue.

My daughters enjoyed playing in the yard and roasting marshmallows over the fire pit. I enjoyed working from the back deck with the cool lake breeze blowing by. We hope to rent it again next time we visit.

Forth on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

As with other reviewers, our stay was great. We were fortunate to be able to book for the 4th of July and the view of the fire works across the lake at Sackets Harbor, was breathtaking. Definitely prime viewing from the cottage. We stayed with our 2 kids, ages 8 and 6. They were quite impressed with the amount of kids' DVDs that were at the cottage. Morning coffee on the deck was relaxing just listening to the sound of the waves and the breeze off the lake. Fishing was relaxing, and finally hit a day when the fish were biting. My wife grew up in the area so checking out the sites was not an issue. Took the kids to Old McDonalds Farm in Sackets Harbor which they really enjoyed. We would definitely try and book future dates on a return visit to the area.

Lakefront Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was very enjoyable. The cottage was very comfortable and morning coffee on the lakefront made for a special setting. All necessities were available for a relaxing stay The location is great for exploring the Golden Crescent and 1000 Islands. Lakefront villages were extremely charming. Owners recommended lunch or dinner at Tin Pan Galley in Sacket's Harbor and it was phenomenal. Overall wonderful experience!

Wow! This place was utterly fantastic! We had everything we needed and more. House and property were immaculate.There are great views from deck from sunrise to sunset. The water front was a blast! We did tons of fishing and swimming,caught many different types of fish including catfish! Neighborhood is so peaceful and the town of dexter is very friendly.

Overall we enjoyed ourselves immensely and can't wait to return again next year.

Full Moon

  • 4 of 5

Owner represented the property as advertised. Overall, it was fabulous. Owner actually did not have to accommodate as much as they did. Mind you, glad they did. Maybe less "owner" things to accommodate room for "renter" things.... we got to see a lot of the beautiful moon reflecting down on the bay..... I would recommend
