"First of all, Debbie & Mark are the NICEST people you'll ever meet! They greeted us upon arrival, gave us a tour of the house and grounds, and told us to let them know if we needed anything. Right after they greeted us, a mama duck and her 11 tiny ducklings showed up to greet us as well. There's a container of corn to feed them with, and they regularly came around for snacks throughout the day. It was such a joy to watch them! The house is very comfortable, with lots of seating, and the kitchen is well stocked. The king bed upstairs was like sleeping on a cloud, soooo comfy. The upstairs bathrooms are brand new and so cute. We had plenty of towels and paper products. The views are gorgeous, especially in the morning as the sun comes through the trees and shines on the lake. It was really nice to have use of the kayaks & boat, and my son did some catch & release fishing, which he loved. The house is full of interesting photos and history about the house. And as we also discovered, Debbie is quite the fisher woman, with some amazing catches to her credit :-) We hosted 2 family events, one of them with 24 people, so Mark kindly brought over some extra chairs for us to use. The weather was perfect that day and we all sat outside and had lunch at the picnic tables. We BBQ'd a few times, and cooked lobster one night. On Debbie's advice, we got the lobster from the Market Basket and all agreed that they were the sweetest, most tender lobster we've ever eaten. We ate at Fratello's, our favorite Italian restaurant, and I discovered the most delicious chicken pot pie I've ever had at the 99 restaurant. Although it was motorcycle week, most of the action was on the other side of the lake, so other than distant motorcycle noise, it was very quiet on our side. Debbie & Mark do indeed have a little piece of heaven right there on the lake and we thank them for sharing it with us. We had a wonderful time, and have already booked our trip for next year! I recommend, without hesitation, this lovely house and it's down to earth, very sweet owners, Debbie & Mark. Go and have fun!!!"
