Although parking was a minor annoyance (required to move car every few hours to avoid getting a ticket), the location of the rental was ideal (short walk to restaurants, etc).
The property owner was always available, easy to work with and responded quickly to questions which I appreciated.
Some things I would recommend for enhancing the experience for guests: a bit more deep cleaning (and perhaps access to extra sponges, dish towels and a broom) and more lighting in the kitchen would be helpful. All in all it was comfortable (sofa bed a plus) and the location and cost was great.
From the very start, Mike and Kathy were wonderful hosts, covering every detail about arrival and check in. Mike walked through the many features of the cottage, including gas fireplace, fully stocked kitchenware, heated porch and bathroom floors, wifi, and the large TV with satellite. The amenities really are top notch, as are the materials and craftsmanship.
Included is a separate dock with Adirondack chairs, and they have kayaks for your use...no extra charge like other rentals I researched.
The cottage sits behind and to the side of the main house, but views of the lake were beautiful and privacy was never a concern.
One evening I couldn't find matches to light the gas grill, and Mike was there in 2 minutes with a light and gave things an extra scrub to make everything shine. That's attention to detail, and the reason I look forward to coming back.
