Quiet Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Lovely little cottage with excellent view of Brother's Bay. Quiet retreat with full connection to internet/satellite TV for those who need it, and beautiful sounds of nature and lapping of the waves against the shore for those who don't. :) Fred was a gracious and available host if we needed anything, and had lots of info about where to go explore and have fun. The listing notes "pantry items" but I think this refers more to pots/pans/dishes. There are no spices, oils, sugar, and such, so be sure to pack those if you plan to do some cooking.

Cute cabin and beautiful lake

  • 5 of 5

Cute cabin. Beautiful French doors right off living room to deck and lot of windows. The lake is right outside the house. Beautiful view from the living room we could hear the waves inside the house at night. Cute little deck and fire pit with chairs. Water looked nice and clear to jump right in in warmer weather. Owner lives right next door and was very nice and helpful. We had a lovely girls weekend. Thanks Fred!

nice and pretty quiet.good viewings of lake life.

  • 4 of 5

was clean. + things are comfy couch, comfy bed, nice tv but no local stations, nice shower and showerhead. big sink in bathroom was nice. - things negative were could use more lighting over the kitchen sink and work counter area especially for winter guests.beautiful tile slate floors but uncomfortable to walk on.thanks for doing no major work when I was there so it was quiet.seemed to be a bit of yard stuff around but i guess it was all lake life related .maybe some could be stored (stuff around the porch)
