We had a great experience. Charles went the extra mile to make sure that we were well taken care of. We plan to return!

rustic, cozy cabin and a very good value

  • 3 of 5

this was our second visit to the cabin. i spent my summers in canaan so this was down memory lane for me. the location is good for exploring the region and the owners are very nice and are right down the dirt road. the best feature is the wonderful porch which we ate all our meals on. it is perfect for 2 folks who are not demanding amenities etc. no tv, but wifi. no clothes washer/dryer, tight bedroom space, storage could be improved by getting rid of linens in chest etc. the kitchen was basic, but served us well.

this cabin is good for people who dont want to spend a fortune on lodging, but want a quiet retreat where nature abounds. we saw a bard owl which made our day!

Quiet and Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

I enjoyed the location to all the places I needed to be. There was such a calm that comes over you when the wildlife is the majority of the sound that you hear. It is a small cottage and it is as if it was from a long ago era. The owners provided wifi which enabled me to watch movies on my laptop. I confess I didn't go to lake but it can be seen from the cottage. The owners were very kind and thoughtful.

cozy and quiet

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is tiny but perfectly equipped, and the screened-in porch was especially pleasant. I didn't manage to row to the beach described, but I did walk or drive to it a few times. It's private, so you have to give the owners' name to the lifeguard when you arrive, but otherwise pleasant enough. The owners are kind and responsive hosts, too, eager to make sure you settle in nicely.
