Very, very quiet place

  • 3 of 5

Privacy plus here and quiet except for the loons...It's a hike to the boat house, not for those with mobility issues....clean place in a secluded area....

Really enjoyed ourselves.

  • 4 of 5

Overall, Very Pleasant.

The cottage was nicer than anticipated.

Sarah was quite responsive and candid. Her husband was also a very nice guy.

Bottled water and gas Barbeque were supplied.

Bathroom was clean. A cord of chopped dry wood was there at the ready.

The grounds were lovely and the lot is situated at the most coveted section of the lake.

A couple of things that had nothing to do with the owner.

Muddy Shallow, weedy lake with sharp rocks.

And Marmora itself really needs some attention.

But, overall a great week away and would definitely do it again

Exactly as listing

  • 4 of 5

Very well equipped rental. Tons of space for a family. Quiet, secluded location but close to town for supplies. The boathouse/dock is a great area to enjoy the waterfront. Full bars on the phone for those who need to stay connected. Highly recomended.
