Property is right on beautiful lake.

  • 3 of 5

My family and I enjoyed swimming, canoeing, and fishing on this peaceful quiet lake. It was nice to have a canoe and a rowboat. Though Television is listed under Amenities, there is no reception and a VHS which did not work, no wifi or Verizon cell reception. In addition the one toilet needed plunging once and made weird sounds causing concern that it would not continue to function. The 2 sofa beds are extremely uncomfortable. Be aware that despite listing sleeps 6, he charged extra for the 5th guest. The master bedroom is comfortable and the 2nd with twin beds would be fine for children.

Great Lake house

  • 4 of 5

The house is very nice

Although the lake was dirty wasn't good for swimming or fishing if that's what you want to do

Otherwise very big and clean very private

Nearest store/diner about 10 min driving

Nearest supermarket 20 min driving

The owners are the nicest people

Perfect house with a wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking to spend a relaxing weekend away from the noise of the city and take our 6 month old with us. It was exactly what we were looking for and more. A nice property with lake access, very quiet and a wonderful host willing to help us with every need. Overall, a fantastic weekend that I hope we can repeat very soon!

Clean, well kept, quiet, comfortable, peaceful, all as described

  • 5 of 5

We loved this. My husband and I brought their two teenage daughters and they each brought a friend (total of 6 of us). We stayed for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the lake, rowboat, raft and canoe. On the first day we spent most of the time at the house and then took a short outing to Bash Bish Falls, walking down to the Falls on the MA side as it is a little steeper. We'd been told that the "no swimming" signs were often ignored, so 3 of the 6 of us plunged into the icy water. The others enjoyed the sight and scrambling along the banks of the falls.

On the second day we did the Catamount Aerial Ropes Course. Fantastic, and tiring ....

Irene and her son were very friendly and showed us everything we needed to know, including how to disconnect the WiFi before the kids realized it was available, which I loved. If you want to do that, it's good idea to give them a heads up before you arrive. Had fun teaching the kids how to work a record player. We ate all meals in because it was so lovely to just be there.

We will definitely come back if we're able and will stay here. Lots of things to explore in this area.

Lovely week

  • 4 of 5

We loved the setting and found the house very comfortable in all respects. We would have preferred that the vegetation in the back be cleared to allow swim access to the lake from the house dock. It was absolutely delightful to sit on the back deck admiring the lake and enjoying breakfast, lunch, and dinner!
