Quintessential Summer Fun

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Perch Rocks this summer and had a wonderful time. Owners Steve and Dawn are gracious hosts and ensured that our stay was perfect. The home is stocked with everything you could ever need and more. Dawn has thought of everything from the well-stocked kitchen and comfortable bedding to cozy blankets for down by the fire, phone chargers in every room, Bluetooth music systems, lawn and board games, kayaks… just above and beyond.

This cottage will provide you with the quintessential summer experience. We all made the most of our time there… we saw a bald eagle, caught a bass, made s’mores, watched beautiful sunsets and spent hours on the water. Our boys loved the floating Rave and the lake is perfect for all types of water activities. Calm and not busy! We brought our paddleboard and jetski to add to the fun.

Thanks for sharing this special place with us and we look forward to next summer.

A Welcoming Cottage and Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

Walking into this cozy cottage, we immediately felt at home. Dawn and Steven are wonderful hosts, providing everything we needed to make our week special and memorable. The lakefront area, with a firepit and private dock, was perfect and we had many spectacular sunsets.

Cannot wait to come back next year, if not the end of the summer. Thanks again, Dawn and Steven!

WOW!!! Possibly our best vacation ever!?! So peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

Words can not describe how beautiful Perch Rocks really is! My groomsmen and I stayed at the cottage for a few nights leading up my wedding day. I could not have been more relaxed, and stress free at the wedding if it wasn't for the peacefulness at Perch Rocks leading up to it! Dawn and Steve are the nicest people ever, and the cottage has so much character! The photos on the wall, the decor, the kitchen, and my favorite was the firepit on the waterfront! We were so lucky every night to have clear skies, and to see beautiful sunsets over Bantam Lake... PRICELESS! Liz and I just got back from our honeymoon in Hawaii, and as much as it was paradise, I missed being at Perch Rocks! We highly recommend staying here, best cottage ever!!! Ps. Our wedding photographer was blown away when he saw the property and captured some epic shots! Will post them as soon as they get developed!
