"MY group of 4 thirty-somethings came up for an outrigger canoe race and stumbled upon this gem! I was apprehensive because this property was the last one left, so I was worried something was "wrong" with it, or that we would be hugely disappointed that the reality didn't match the pictures... boy was I wrong! This place is AWESOME!!!! So cute and well appointed! The décor is simple and comfortable--- we immediately felt at home! Loved that there was no TV in the main living room--- the views were enough to keep us engaged! The beds were comfortable and the living/dining area was open and nice! It took until the second full day to make our way down to the private beach, and it is soooooooo cute! Great to lay out and skip rocks! We wanted to make smores and enjoy the outside fire pit, but ran out of time. I would not hesitate to come back to this house, and am in fact nervouse to write too good a review in fear of the place being rented the next time we are up there. LOVE THIS HOUSE!!!
Oh yeah... the train does run extremely close to the house, but it wasn't enough to wake anyone in the night... we just laughed as we heard it going by... both the muted train noises and the bridge from the parking spot over the tracks to the house ADDED TO THE unique and coolness of the property. We never saw the caretaker, but he was around during our stay--- and while his cottage is located just out the front door, it NEVER bothered us or made us feel less private. All the living areas are on the river side of the house, so you can just see the cottage down the hallway- it was a non-issue. Lastly... getting there the first time was tedious! We punched in the address on our navigation, and it DID NOT MATCH RHE REAL DIRECTIONS at all! You MUST go by the detailed directions given in the welcome packet... we had to do many turn-arounds after missing the mailbox, and it was even more confusing coming from the opposite direction. A sign, or even some other landmark would be extremely helpful.
Again, this place is awesome!!!"
