"We stayed there last weekend of October. In advance of the trip David sent us clear directions and information. We found the place easily with GPS and got there just before sunset. Everything was just as described. View of the lake is beautiful & the cottage very comfortable - felt like a family get away spot. It was a little cool for water sports though we did take the peddle boat out for a brief tour of the south end of the lake. The dock looked ideal for summer and was a comfortable place for morning coffee and sunset over the hills. The accommodations were more than sufficient for four adults and three kids. We took note of many special touches: a book of local attractions, firewood provided, check in from the owner, etc. Seemed like they invested in the place as well with several updated features (skylights in game room, bathroom sinks, breakfast bar/counter tops) and newer appliances (fridge, dishwasher, TV). Wifi helped the rainy afternoon as did access to Netflix as a guest on the smart TV. Everything was clean and well kept.
There are several interesting hiking spots within a half hour but we were content to fritter the day away without leaving. Groceries, CVS, pizza place all within 10 minutes.
This is not a secluded get-away; there are neighbors on either side and homes are very close to each other. However, the property is situated so that it feels private enough. Of course, this was off-peak so it may feel differently for a mid-summer holiday weekend. Many homes in the area seemed to be seasonal use only.
All in all this is a very nice place that we would visit again and heartily recommend to others."
