Just an awesome cottage getaway! Super clean and the owner thought of everything.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great spot for anglers. The cottage is close to some of the best smallmouth fishing on the lake! The cottage was perfect and the owner was just great.

Great lake view

  • 5 of 5

Owner was timely and communicated very well. The kitchen lacked for nothing - there was an abundance of cookware, drinkware, etc. The lake views are fantastic.

Perfect family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We just finished our vacation at west winds and everything was great! The house was exactly as described and everything we needed in the house was supplied. We traveled with 3 little kids and Pam helped supply items in the house, and for our outings, that made it easy to travel and helped ease our packing burden. Pam was friendly, available, and a great resource for day trips, local events, food/ shopping locations, and anything else we needed. We made great use out of the kayaks and paddle board, fished daily off the docks, and relaxed on the quiet bay. The house has ample area for kids to run around and the road has minimal traffic. We had a memorable vacation and look forward to our stay here again next year!

Owner's Response: We are so happy that your family had a great experience staying with us at West Winds! We definitely try to keep the cottage supplied with everything that our guests need and appreciate your kind words!! We agree that the surrounding area is an ideal place for biking and walking as the loop around the Point is quiet with minimal traffic. The dock at the cottage is great for fishing and we were glad that you were able to go swimming and kayaking every day.....hope you made some great memories! We would love to have you stay with us next year!!

My family and I had a great time at your house. I will let all my friends know that it is a place to stay, when they are in the area. The house was extremely clean, kitchen was amazingly equipped and the towels and sheets smelled beautifully. It's a great place for water sports as well as relaxing vacation by the lake.

Thank you once again for letting us stay at your house.

Regards Paulina

Great spot, great host.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 rented west winds cottage for 2 weeks and were very happy with our stay. The house is well-maintained, spotlessly clean, nicely decorated, full of drawers and hooks, and equipped with lots of pans, dishes and other cooking gadgets. (No dishwasher, though.) You will look at the lake all days everyday through the beautiful front room's windows. The garage has kayaks and a paddle board, some loaner fishing rods and there was also a gas grill, a fire pit and a bug-screened gazebo that helped us make the most of the location: on a protected bay. The water out front doesn't get the waves of the main lake, so safer for kids in kayaks and often mirror-like in the early morning. The bay is also fairly weedy--not enough to prevent swimming and boating, but very inviting to fish! My son caught a 14 inch bass from shore and many other fish during our stay. The west-facing dock is a great place for watching sunsets, and playing afternoon cards. The point itself is quiet and vacation-y, and we spent many evenings biking around the 3 mile loop. There are several kid-friendly outings within an hour or 1.5 hour drive of the property; Ausable Chasm (easy hiking, short rapid rafting and more challenging ropes course), Point Au Roche state park (easy hiking), Quebec's Parc safari and waterpark, Isle La Motte and Champlain Islands (beautiful 10-20 mile biking loops, need your own bikes) and Burlington. The rolling farmland of both upstate NY and Vermont are lovely but city folk be forewarned: the surrounding towns are VERY low on restaurant options, and the nearest grocery a 15-20 minute drive, so stock up on groceries in a bigger town before you arrive. All in all, a great summer getaway.

Owner's Response: We are very pleased that your family enjoyed your vacation at West Winds! It really is a great spot for kayaking and swimming and we were so glad that your family enjoyed all the water activities! Very nice that your son caught a large bass while fishing right off the docks! We were glad that the weather was good and you were able to enjoy the simple pleasures at the cottage and take in some of the closeby points of interest as well! Thank you for all the kind words and we hope everyone made some great memories while staying at the cottage! It was a pleasure meeting your lovely family and we welcome you back at West Winds again!

Amazing, complete with everything!

  • 5 of 5

We are so lucky to have found this rental. It was perfect! Adorable, complete with everything you need to not leave for a solid week! My kids asked the first day when we were coming back. We used kayaks and swam almost everyday! Sunsets were incredible, gazebo was lovely for dinners. We felt so comfortable all week. Visited Lake Placid and Burlington VT to see some other sites. Pam was so awesome wIt's her communication and I would tell you they don't make good people like her any more. The only constructive feedback I can offer is it was bright in the one bedroom where the kids slept. We solved by hanging a blanket over the blind. Otherwise just simply perfect. We will be back!!!!!
