A lovely, secluded place to get away and relax.
"We are a couple in our eighties who needed a quiet, peaceful place that would provide a change of scene from the retirement community where we live. We found this spot to be just what we were looking for. The cabin is small, but comfy and neat, with all we needed for our week's visit. We stayed there near the end of August, when the weather was excellent: sunny, comfortable temperature and cool at night. Whatever provisions we needed could be had by driving a short distance away and, since we are addicted to the New York Times, we were delighted to find that the small mini-mart down the road carried it every day. The best part of our stay, however, was the lovely little private beach. We went there every day from 2:00 - 3:30 when the sun flooded the beach and we tried to soak up enough rays to last us through the coming winter months! We also took our cocktails down there at 5:00 and sat watching the changing light and listening to the gentle lapping of the water, hoping for another appearance by the loons. No motor boats or jet skis are allowed on White Oak Pond, so there is never any intrusion on nature's sounds. The occasional Sunfish working the breeze and kayaks exploring the waters provided just what was needed to complete the scene. There are many good restaurants nearby, as well as art galleries and craft stores. Next year, before we go back there, I hope to do some research on nearby hiking trails. The owners are lovely people and we enjoyed talking to them, finding that we had many things in common. They were most helpful in helping us get settled, but not the least bit intrusive. The only thing that we found difficult was the sound of traffic on nearby Route 3, but it seemed to calm down by nightfall. We would definitely recommend this place. There is nothing more soothing than falling asleep listening to the loons calling across the water."
