Cozy, clean cottage, beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful girls weekend at this cottage. The place was very clean, cozy and inviting. Tom left a detailed welcome note on the table as well as a map and a town beach pass for us to use. Also a box of baked goods, thank you Tom! We loved sitting out on the big front porch across from the lake and we visited the winery which is in walking distance. Tom was available to answer any questions that we had before and during our stay. I would love to come back in the future!

Great time at Lake Waramug

My husband and I rented out the cottage at Lake Waramug, we also brought our little Westie! We had an amazing time. Tom was so helpful and and accommodating. We enjoyed relaxing down at the beach, the bed was comfortable, and cottage was very clean. Everything we needed at the cottage was easily accessible - Tom thought of everything, he's a Pro!

Wonderful, relaxing weekend

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely weekend in this cottage. The lake was crystal clear and great for swimming, the cottage is right near an inn that serves breakfast (which is quite convenient), and the surrounding area is lovely, with little towns to explore. Perfect for a getaway weekend.

Peaceful cottage getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Tom's cottage in July to get away from the city for some peace and quiet. The cottage was perfect for relaxing on the porch in the comfy chairs and rocking chairs with the great view of the lake and hills. Kitchen had everything we needed. We didn't grill but it seemed to have everything needed if we wanted to. Tom was great and answered every question we had. Was nice meeting you Tom! Lake was great for walking down to the beach as well as canoeing and paddle boarding. We had a great time!
