We loved our stay at your cottage. The personal touches were very thoughtful and much appreciated.

  • 5 of 5

We were so lucky to find this gem of a cottage. It was charming, comfortable welcoming and fun. We loved Sue and Kathy's personal touches. We made breakfast with fresh eggs and cinnamon bread. What a treat!! We sat in the backyard when we got back after our dinner and enjoyed the peace and quiet of the pond and the stars in the sky. We would have loved to go out on the pond in a paddle boat or kayak didn't have time.

Perfect summer getaway

  • 5 of 5

Sue and Kathy were fantastic hosts, leaving us with cinnamon bread and eggs and a cooled down house upon our arrival. They left out lots of great toys for the kids, who had a blast in the water, riding the peddle boat, and even using the kiddie pool. When the weather got bad, they checked in to make sure we were ok and had power. With three bedrooms and two full bathrooms, a screened-in porch and a full living room, we had plenty of space to relax and enjoy.

This was one of the best vacations we've had in a while. It was so fun and so relaxing. Highly recommend this resort to others with little kids or any kinds of kids too! Our 19 year olds had a blast! It was the perfect hideaway vacation spot!

Very relaxing, cozy cottage that worked well for my mom who is in a wheelchair.

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed this comfortable getaway with kayak and paddle boat available to get on the water it was wonderful. The cinnamon bread and tea was yummy. We enjoyed cooking out on the grill and having bonfires at night. The chocolate store, waterfall and walk to the lighthouse in Saugarities were great too. Thank you for some great memories made.
