The perfect cottage in a great location, with wonderful owners!
My wife and I wanted to get away to a secluded New England cabin or cottage that wasn't going to cost a ridiculous amount of hard earned money. I scanned the internet from Maine to Vermont with the intent of finding a suitable location away from busy roads and towns. When I landed on this site, I thought "hmm . . . too good to be true" - the rental fee was half of what typical cottages/cabins cost. After speaking with Cathy, I decided to go with it, and my wife and I never had one moment of regret. This is a wonderful, newly renovated, clean cottage on a quiet road across from a lovely stream. Because the road is closed at one end, the traffic is minimal, and we felt safe walking our dog, taking in the quiet atmosphere.
The friendly, warm owners, Bob and Cathy, live next door. They were never intrusive, but were always happy to answer our questions regarding hiking trails, best routes, and good restaurants.
Because the cottage is very close to routes 7 and 7A, we could get on the road to our destinations in a jiffy. It's also less than 5 minutes to a stunningly good take-out kitchen called EATS. We enjoyed the food so much, we ordered something different every night and stayed in with our dog, just reading or watching satellite tv. Since the cottage's kitchen is more than adequate for preparing home-cooked meals, we always ate breakfast at home.
The bed upstairs is comfortable, and the bedroom is big with plenty of open space to spread out. The bathroom downstairs, though on the small side, is super clean, with a good shower and plenty of hot water. In case you forget to pack an item, the bathroom is filled with fresh toiletries. The gift of the box of chocolate truffles on the dining table was just one indication of how much attention to detail Cathy and Bob give to their cottage and the comfort of their guests.
I don't have a single criticism of the cottage. For my wife and me, it exceeded every expectation, and we plan to be back soon.

Thank you for your review.
You were everything one would want in their cottage. The place was immaculate when you left.
It was a pleasure having you and we would be happy to have you back.
