Warm, cozy, lovely and quiet cabin for christmas and new years holidays

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this cabin for christmas and NYE holidays with my family (4 people) and loved it! My main worry was that the cabin wouldn't warm enough, but it was very warm inside - it has proper heating throughout the house (except upper floors, but they eventually warmed up in few hours). We loved the interior - it gave us a cozy feeling of a house far away from modern civilization, noise and big cities. So important to refill our batteries for a new year! The fireplace is beautiful, we gathered around it for talks and watching movies. We loved the patio with chairs. And, of course, the lake views!

All in all, even though the cabin gives you a feeling of privacy and isolation, the nearest (big) supermarket it just 20min away drive. So we never felt short on any food.

Additionally, I'd like to thank manager Alyson, who promptly helped to arrange a decorated christmas tree upon my request shortly before our arrival.

We had a wonderful vacation and we definitely recommend staying at this cabin, whatever season!

A little slice of Heaven!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was not nearly long enough. We only we there for a 2 night stay but the home was perfect for our family. Got a little lost on the way in as we arrived late and after dark. The next morning we woke to an amazing wonderland!!! Thank you so much for sharing your slice of Heaven with us. Hoping to make a return trip next year!!

Beautiful Oasis on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our little mini-vacation in Vermont. The location is great -right on the lake with beautiful lake views from the back porch. The cabin is very well equipped with linens, towels and everything we needed in the kitchen including a dishwasher. We didn't get to us the canoe because of thunder on the lake but the fishing off the pier was fantastic. Everything was in bloom outside and our two dogs were greeted on their walks by Chloe the dog next door and by another very friendly dog we called "muzzler" because he wears a muzzle on his face but it was probably because he was too found of being fed by the neighbors. All in all a great place to stay. We would love to come back again for a longer time. The only issue was that we could not get the coffee maker to work. All four of us tried it. It was kind of comical. Since we were the first renters of the season, it was probably not a known issue and it was a small issue. Overall, a great time was had by all of us.

Stunning property as advertised....

  • 5 of 5

We had a splendid time at your lovely property.

You provide so much for rental properties, as perfect things such as hand soaps/lotions in bathrooms/sinks, towels, dishwashing stuff, etc.!

We just had to "move in".

Your Log styled home is stunning with lovely furnishings. OMG, the Views??? Aaaaah!

Your neighbors are super people, when Gryphon (our cat) visited them, and they were very accepting of him.

Super appreciation to Alyson Kennedy's professional and attentive Property Management.

Stay at this property, as we will again.

P.S. Loved welcoming Christmas lights outdoors and around the fireplace! How wonderful.

Needs serious maintenance!

  • 2 of 5

The location, privacy, views, property contacts, and comfort are all very good. The plumbing/septic are failing and sewer gas and sewage backed up into the toilet. We could only use one bathroom during our stay; and worried that would back up as well. The upstairs shower tub fills with water while you bathe. Dirty water backs up into the washing machine. The fire place was poorly maintained and caked with creosote. Overall cleanliness was poor (sticky carpet, dirty kitchen, dirty windows, and dust/bugs everywhere.) The dogs next door are friendly, but use the yard of this cabin as their toilet. With good maintenance and a deep cleaning, this cabin would be worth the rental price.

Owner's Response: I do want to sincerely apologize for the inconvenience during your stay. Due to a very busy summer/fall season our private septic took quite a hit. Once we were notified of the septic/sewage problem we had a professional septic company come and correct all issues, and provide maintenance to all things that potentially could become issues down the line. I am deeply sorry about that, and have taken all steps to correct it. The cabin does get cleaned thoroughly between stays but we do wait until the end of the season to deep clean the carpets, fire place, etc as to not interfere with guests. I have advised the owner to all reviews and he is taking all the steps to fix any issues anyone has. I do appreciate the feedback as to now we can focus on the immediate issues at hand. ~Alyson

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Place was great and the smallmouth and pike fishing within a few miles was outstanding. Not knowing the lake, it didn't take me long to locate fish. It was great to come back to the house after a day on the lake build a fire and enjoy the sunset over the mountains with my wife and dog. Only negative is when the wind blows I would not want my boat tied off at the dock, it could get nasty. I put the boat on and off the trailer each trip.
