It was exactly what I was looking for. It was super clean and cozy in a rural location away from all the city noise. Jen the person renting the property even turned the heat on for us before we got there😊 I would definitely come back!

Clean, updated cottage, friendly owner, Bad Location

  • 2 of 5

This cottage is a clean property and we enjoyed the inside. Jen, the owner, was friendly and professional. Unfortunately, the description is not very clear--the cottage is attached to the restaurant (only a door with tinted window separates the cottage from the rest of the restaurant) and the main entrance actually faces the parking lot so as you go in and out, you have to weave through the customers as they stare at you going in to the cottage. One of the things that ruined our stay was that we had customers even in the back of the cottage, where we were supposed to have some level of privacy. We couldn't leave any curtains open to let light in, because people were staring right in from the parking lot. Hearing noise from the restaurant until 11pm didn't help. The restaurant closes at 10, but of course there's cleaning up to do as well as prepping for the next day. If you are a guy coming down to fish and don't care about the noise or the people surrounding your cottage, this is for you. We were busy during the day and wanted to relax in the evening and that was not possible. I think Jen tried to explain but I just didn't know it could be that bad. We just turned the TV up loudly so we didn't have to hear the noise from outside. The walls are thin, so it's best if you have either the TV on or the AC unit, which drowned out the noise during the day for the most part. A better description to know what to expect would have been really appreciated. I left a long note for Jen but never received a response. I wish someone had written a review for us before we booked.

Owner's Response: OMG, Anna, I’m so glad you wrote and told us about your stay. We are SO SORRY that the “activity” at The Ice Cream Castle was not what you expected – we try our best to make sure everyone’s stay is SUPER and they come back year after year. You are definitely right, it’s attached to Yorkies Ice Cream, but we try to gear the rental activity (and the ingress/egress) to the back, where there IS some more privacy. We have had some really good feedback from the other guests this summer who love the proximity to Pymatuning Lake (and the ice cream ). We hope that you will come visit us again (we want you to try The Sweet Retreat next time)!!
