Well kept, well stocked with awesome lakefront property.

  • 5 of 5

We were welcomed to a well stocked kitchen that had everything I use at home. The house was clean and very comfortable. Large table for dining and domino tournaments. Beds are super comfy with nice size bedrooms. Two bathrooms each with a shower. WiFi was excellent. TV appeared to be great, we don't watch TV on vacation. Dock was good. Water access great. Four beautiful golden retrievers next door who were very friendly and enjoyed the dog treats I bought them. Neighbors are lovely. Great place to stay and would highly recommend it. And yes, we would go back. And Larry was efficient and wonderful to work with

Nice, relaxing vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised with the cute little town of Old Forge. We are two families with 4 older teens and found plenty for all to enjoy. House met all our needs. Loved the outdoor space with grill and fire pit and plenty of seating. Spent a lot of time on dock, fishing and relaxing.

Great stay on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

The set-up of this property was perfect for our two family stay. The pictures are true to what is offered as well. The dock was nice for morning coffee and nights listening to the loon sing. Boating can be done just outside the cottage in the calm cove. We will plan on staying again next year during the same period! The only addition to make this better would be having a small washer and dryer to wash clothes. Our deposit was returned quickly and we had received notice from Larry before we left Old Forge. This is a great place and I would recommend it to anyone looking for time away in OF!!

The cottage was very clean, kitchen had all the needed dishes/ cooking utensils along with a dishwasher. All the beds were comfortable and there were fans in every bedroom which we needed for the hot, hot week we had. The swimming area was sandy and also had a great dock. Larry was so easy to deal with and available for any issues. Couldn't have had a nicer time!!

Thanks Larry!!

Enjoyed this house very much. The kitchen was the perfect size for our family and all appliances worked well. The outdoor lake view deck was very peaceful. Really wish there was access to a washer and dryer on the property

This place was amazing. Everything and more than the pictures showed. It was in immaculate condition, had everything you could possibly need, even things like paper plates, plastic wrap, hand soap, bandaids, pretty much anything you could need. DVD player with many good dvd's, a computer with wifi, fully equipped kitchen even measuring spoons and cups, pitchers, non-stick pans, microwave, and dishwaser. I brought a lot of things I didn't need. The view is spectacular, the water area sandy and great for kids and adults. Plenty of room for our group of 10. Excellent customer service by the owner. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone! The cost was a bit high since we paid for all our kids to come, but I guess it's the going rate for a cottage that would fit 10 people. We spent much of our time right there enjoying the water and the cottage. The town is a short drive away and we did go there several times. Groceries are available, though we brought a lot of our own. A bit expensive compared to where we live. We love Tony Harper's in town, Walt's Diner and Daikers (a bit farther down, 20 min), Keyes Pancake House. Calypso's Cove has a lot of fun things to do, Nutty Putty mini-golf also fun and the chair lift at McCauley Mountain. We love Old Forge and we had a fantastic time. Would love to go back to this cottage in the future.
