We had a great stay in early October. We did arrive in daylight which was very helpful as the road into the house was quite an experience! House is wonderfully located at the edge of the lake but yet in the woods. There were only two of us so we did not use the upstairs. Everything we needed was at the house. Used the kayak for a trip around the lake and our grandchildren took a trip to the island in the row boat. Would definitely come back again!! Even got to see the loon family!!
Hello Stacey, we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at our cottage and that you and grandchildren could enjoy boating and the quiet of the lake and fall foliage at this time of year. Do come back with the whole family!
Magical old school modern
Our stay was wonderful. The house had a classic old school feel, but had excellent air conditioning, wi fi, radio and tv. We tried all the different boats on the property. The Sunfish was my favorite - perfect for sailing on a lake where the winds can be tricky. The views from the living room, and from many other points on the property were just spectacular. Lots of interesting birds -seagulls, loons, kingfishers, ducks, geese, heron, and an eagle! We took a two hour hike right out the door each day, and found biking routes as well. Shopping was close by and Burlington only half an hour away. But we just enjoyed hanging out at the house and walking in the neighborhood. It felt completely private even though it was in a lakeside community of sorts. Only needed the a.c. twice because the breeze off the lake was so pleasant. Also tried the fire pit by the shore. Just idyllic. Hoping we can go back in the not too distant future. Highly recommended if you want a peaceful getaway.
Hugh, we loved having you and are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. I guess the canoe, kayaks, rowboat and sailboat all got a workout! We are glad that the baby loons hatched while you were around so that you could see the loon family paddling around on the lake. We'd love to host you again, Madeline
