I want to go back there already!
When looking for a place to get away and relax, this is definitely a great place to consider. The view from the cottage was phenomenal never mind the fact that the cottage also had everything we needed to have a comfortable stay. During our stay it snowed quit a lot but they were so kind as to have the driveway and car cleared by the next day. This is a place I would highly recommend to anyone wanting an affordable relaxing getaway.
Very nice place! Everything was there and very clean. No issues. Highly recommend!
very cozy and well appointed cottage
Lovely cottage, very well kept and very clean. Gorgeous views. Comfortable in negative zero in December - driveway was plowed and porch light on for our after dark arrival.
Was just two of us but can accommodate more - particularly in warmer weather as the deck and yard are roomy and well situated.
Thank you for a great stay
Very nice comfortable home. Great views of water and shoreline. Looking forward to staying again.
Had a great time. Loved the house and yard. Felt very at home
