About Mary Ann Hoagland

My husband and I purchased this home in June 2016. We stayed at Emerald Pointe Resort just months before in April. We loved the atmosphere and safe, friendly community this resort offers. We decided to invest and purchase a place here so our family , including our three grandchildren would have a place to go on vacations at the beach each year. We would also have a place to go in the winter time to escape the cold. Emerald Pointe is a well kept secret at PCB. We invite you to stay at our place, and hope you may experience the home away from home atmosphere this resort and cottage offers.

What makes this Cottage unique

We chose this home because of its location in the community. Our cottage is conveniently located on the stocked catch and release pond. It has a screened in back porch, overlooking the pond offering privacy and relaxation. We like the option of having our morning coffee on the boardwalk, or in the privacy of our porch. One of the community pools is just steps from the front door, (another convenience if you have children that like to swim).

It was clean, spacious and right next to a pool. It also backs up to the pond which you can truly enjoy as you sit out on the screened in patio. Mary Ann the owner was the best! Her response time was quick and friendly and I found her extremely nice in our dealings!

                                                                    The and spent home was very clean and well maintained. We celebrated our 57th anniversary there and just wanted to get away for the holidays. We had no agenda other to kick back and relax--which we did. We did decide we would not go back, but go further south this time of year.

                                                                    Love this home!

Location is great, next to pool and the sun room faces the lake. Home is very clean and well maintained. For anyone bringing a pet, the pet walk is close by. Owner is extremely nice . Emerald Point is a great place to stay and we will definitely be renting here again .

                                                                    Owner's Response:

This particular home was clean and conveniently located to the pool and the view of the lake was very refreshing! We will be back! It was so nice not to wait on elevators and fight crowds. The owner was very pleasant to work with.

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    MBZWoodbridge, CT

                                                                    The owners were so responsive to any question or need. The only disappointment was the pool next to the property is closed for maintenance ...other than that it was exactly as described. If in the area again I would definitely stay here.

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    Absolutely beautiful, access to everything
