Perfect spot for a week away from it all.

  • 5 of 5

From our point of view, this is a wonderful old fashioned cottage that is in a beautiful, quiet location. It has remarkable privacy for a lakeside location. We did not hear or see anyone, which we prefer. Only noise at night was a loon in the distance. Distance to town beach, tennis courts, boat launches, wonderful cafes and delicious Thai restaurant was inside 10 minutes. Cabin is laid out nicely. We slept on the comfy bed better than we do at home. The portion of the lake this cottage is on is quiet and undeveloped. If you like nature, quiet, and privacy, this place is hard to beat.

Peaceful oasis

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is just as described in the listing and in photos. Very well kept, with a beautiful view of the lake and woods. The wrap-around screened porch has a dining table and a separate sitting area with a great view of the lake. There is also a two-person rocker down by the bonfire pit. A short path leads down to your own private dock. The kitchen was well stocked not only with pots and pans, dishes, etc, but also with basic cooking ingredients like olive oil, vinegar, and spices. There is a gas grill on the deck just outside the kitchen. In addition to two bedrooms and a loft for sleeping, the cabin had an inside dining room and sitting area next to a fireplace. Keith provided us with sheets and towels that were frankly more luxurious than the ones we had at home. In the mornings and afternoons we would listen to birdsong and watch as goldfinch and other rare birds flitted around our clearing. In the evenings we would lay with the windows open and fall asleep to the sound of bullfrogs in in the reeds below.

Keith was on hand to answer any of our questions, and the neighbors down the road were also very friendly and helpful. The cabin is a few minutes' drive from Newport, which has restaurants, a grocery store, and other amenities. It's easy to drive to nearby hiking trails, and the Canada border is just a few miles away. We rented kayaks and spent a day exploring the lake. I highly recommend this cabin for any couple or family seeking a quiet getaway that's still close to the comforts of civilization.

View from the porch is perfect!

  • 4 of 5

What a wonderful rental! The wrap-around screened-in porch made this cabin a delight even in the rain. Great lake, and I love that we couldn't see or hear any neighbors from the house. The owner's uncle, who is the caretaker and lives just down the road, couldn't be friendlier or more helpful. Newport, a quick drive from the cabin, was a nice town to have close-by. A great place for vacation!

Great Classic Summer Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The house is a quintessential turn of the century lake front cottage with tons of character. It was very clean and the time we spent on the wrap around porch was more than enjoyable. A great spot to get away, relax and fish.
