Great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay and it has everything you need, just add your clothes, food and drink.

The cottage is clean, quiet and close to everything.

Terry and Tim were the perfect hosts and made sure we were comfortable.

We enjoyed our stay and if we are in this area again we will stay here.

Poor

  • 1 of 5

Light fixtures didn't work. Dryer would need two cycles to dry. House smells. Beds are uncomfortable and tv is non existent. Road noise at night is very loud.

Owner's Response: Your review is the only poor review we have had. The statement you've made in your review are not true. During your stay – you did nothing but thank us for the accommodations and our kindness and help. It is sad that you've taken such an inflammatory approach upon your departure regarding your damage done and the deposit not return to you You're also the only guest that we have ever had to keep the deposit in the 10 years that we have been doing this rental thing. Furthermore, we keep wanting to help you ( even though you did leave our home in serious disrepair) but then you then you keep doing mean and untrue things like this. We are active homeowners and take excellent care of our properties. We remain committed to these principles and basic kindness and generosity towards others as we were with you even allowing you to extend your stay. Please accept my invitation to call me and chat as communication in a kind positive manner is always a good thing. Even though you continue to be inflammatory -we do nothing but wish you the best. Thank you.

Very accommodating!

  • 4 of 5

Other than the traffic noise on main road, this home was a sweet place to stay. Accommodations with necessary items were available upon arrival. There were things like shampoo & lotions along with paper goods etc, that most homes don't supply even if you have to replace them. We would recommend this one!

Very Enjoyable!

  • 5 of 5

If we return to this area, we wouldn’t think twice about staying here again. We have booked quite a few properties through VRBO and this was one of the most welcoming and pleasant experiences! Terry seemed like an "old friend" from the moment we met her.

And what a surprise....

The very first night, I quickly realized I would need to go to the drug store for fingernail polish remover. Before leaving, I was putting our things away in the bathroom and was amazed to find not only fingernail polish remover, but an assortment of other items that I have never seen in another rental. Saved me a trip to the drug store!!!

Although the home is older, it was very clean and comfortable. We lived in a similar home for many years and loved the quirks that reminded us of our old place.

Thank you Terry & Tim!! We had a wonderful time!

Warmer Than Massachusetts

Great location with privacy and convenient to so many great places to be outdoors. Short walk to lake and tackle shop. Pond out back a constant source of local wildlife. Grapefruit in backyard a pleaaant treat.
