Guestbook comments from the manager

We enjoyed our stay at Papas Hideaway. We were pleasantly surprised with how secluded this property was and still just steps to the ocean! The house was a fantastic and eclectic bonus! We recommend this property for anyone desiring to have the feel of "away from all the crazy" and a walk or bicycle ride to anything you need!

Lovely, quiet rustic cabin

  • 5 of 5

We've come to Grayton for 43 years, and this is one of my favorite cabins. There's a great porch, -a well stocked kitchen, comfortable beds and furniture, and a great pier for crabbing. It's an easy walk to the beach. Can't wait to be back in the fall to use the fireplace. Didn't turn on TV S. Enjoyed the peace and quiet.

You Can't See the Lake from Here

  • 1 of 5

What a disappointment!

After traveling a thousand miles and expecting to spend the Christmas holiday enjoying this "lake front" cottage, we found the view of the lake to be totally blocked by a solid wall of water grasses along the shore line that had a grown to to a height of eight to ten feet. There was to be no anticipated blissful and relaxing vista of changing light and winds on the surface of the lake from the front porch. We were told in a call to the owner's agent, who seemed to have no knowledge of the situation, that the owner would be contacted, and, I assumed, we would be told what could be done to remediate the situation. This tempered our initial reaction not to unpack and look for another accommodation, hopefully with a refund of the week's rent. There was, however, no follow up from the agent, but, with Christmas upon us, we stayed, The cottage had been renovated with first quality materials and workmanship. It was comfortable though the stay was not what had been anticipated. It was only when we checked out and I inquired about the owner contact did the agent share that conversation about the blocked view, without apology or remorse for failure to follow up with us.

If you are thinking of a stay at this property and expect to enjoy the lakefront location, be sure to ask if the grasses have been cut or removed. Other properties on the lake, including those adjacent, have found a way to control what appeared to be an invasive species. If not, do not rent this property.

Peaceful & Serene

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we have rented this cottage for a week in the summer. It offers the perfect amount of seclusion with walking access to restaurants and the beach. The house if perfect for a couple looking for a getaway. House is beautifully appointed, comfortable, and has great outdoor space.

Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This home offered the best getaway I could imagine. My husband brought us here for a Valentines day surprise and this cozy cottage was perfect. It was right on the lake and even though it was bit chilly, the property offered kayaks so we took them out and it was a fun filled day. The interior was decorated beautifully and this home offered us just the right amount of seclusion. I can't wait to come back to this home with our kids this summer.
