It was truly a wonderful and magical place. The cottage was perfect. Spotless when we arrived. I loved the charm of the decor with a mix of antique, vintage and new, all blended together giving the home a special warm & cozy charm. Everything is there that you could possibly need, plus some. They even happened to have a small plastic kiddie pool much to our childs delight since it was such a huge disappointment when we couldn't bring ours. Truly, all you need to bring is clothes to wear since they have supplied everything else! The property is truly wonderful with walking trails throughout. Beautiful views to enjoy, forest, and nature's beauty all around. A perfect way to enjoy God's creation! You can easily stay put at the cottage and enjoy the property and all it has to offer if you don't want to deal with crowds, or, you can hit all the tourist attractions since they are surprising, only a very short driving distance away. We loved hiking through the forest where the "Fairy's" live, and it just so happens, they have "Fairy" beds in the cottage! When you are at the cottage, you feel as though you are in the middle of no where but yet, you are actually very close to everything you could possibly want. It is the perfect spot for anybody, whether you are single, a couple, or a family, it's sure to please and be a great experience for all. Pets are considered and I could not possibly think of a better place to go hiking with a dog. The four legged family members will be sure to have just as wonderful of a vacation as the two legged family members will. I believe this cottage is a rarety and true gem. I would rate it higher than any 5 star hotel I have ever stayed in. It's a 10 star in my book! You can flip through page after page of cabin rentals on the site like I did, but you truly have to stop once you find this one since, you will not find better than Wadcheeaukee West! I feel very lucky to have found such a great spot and had the privilege to stay there and experience some wonderful and special times and memories that will last my lifetime. It will definitely be the first place I think of going the next time we are looking for a get away to go to. I highly, highly recommend this rental!!
