Lovely Rustic Cottages on Beautiful Lakefront Property
Our large family group stayed for a week in August of 2020. Overall, we were all pleased with the property and it met expectations based on the photos, reviews and property description seen on VRBO. The lake is gorgeous and the various boating equipment was a hit with all. We would definitely considering returning in the future. I was surprised that the owners didn't reach out with any additional information prior to our stay. A general email (or welcome book) about check-in & check-out times, recycling/trash, the road conditions & water potability would have been helpful. We relied on what was provided thru VRBO for general information. Mostly, we had pleasant surprises (like the availability of A/C) but some info- like the arrival time (we could have arrived 4 hours earlier!) and bedroom set-ups was not accurate. That said, I did contact the owner about some specific questions and received expedient replies to the questions I asked. Overall, a good experience!

Our 1st VT Columbus Day weekend
Lake and property situation was amazing, owners met us at arrival and had both dwelling fireplaces running for us, so nice. We enjoyed the outdoor areas the most especially the awesome outdoor firepit where our family hung out for many hours. Hope to return on another fall weekend or perhaps a summer week If I can arrange a group. thanks so much, Shawn & Lisa, Rochester, NY

Perfect getaway!
I rented both cabins for a family get together. It was a perfect getaway and we had a wonderful time. It is unbelievable how clear the lake is…truly beautiful! We were in the water all day and used all the paddle boards, kayaks, blow up rafts, and the floating swim dock. We enjoyed being unplugged and spent the nights playing games and making smores at the fire pit. There was a new TV with a DVD player but we never used it. The cabins are clean, comfortable and well stocked with all the kitchen items you may need. Space is a bit of an issue as the bedrooms are not much bigger than the size of the bed. Although there is limited storage space for clothing and food and a few decorative furnishings that took up space, we made it work and my group of 12 was able to fit between the two cabins. There is a wood fire pit in front of the small cabin and a gas fire pit in front of the large cabin. The dock in front of the small cabin has sun for most of the day while the dock in front of the large cabin is shaded all day. Sturdy shoes are recommended as the areas around the cabins/docks can be steep and rocky in places. The large cabin has two ceiling fans and two of the bedrooms came with a window fan but I recommend bringing extra small window fans for the other bedrooms. Bringing your own drinking water is no big deal as the water from the lake can be used for showering, brushing teeth, and cooking. If you are looking for a quiet, peaceful, and beautiful getaway…this is the place!

Perfect Vermont Getaway
Janie and Bill have a magnificent piece of property to share with anyone looking for a lakeside, wooded getaway. The large camp, which can sleep 8, is quaint, yet big enough to host a crowd, with an incredible dining area that overlooks the lake. The small camp can sleep about 6 more people, so this is a great property for a large family or even two, as each camp has its own kitchen. The lake is gorgeous, one of the clearest lakes I've ever been in, and the remoteness of the camp makes you feel like you're really off the beaten path. There are paddle boards, kayaks, and a canoe so you can further explore the lake. The sound of loons calling to each other makes it that much more magical. Janie was extremely accommodating and answered all my calls and questions. This is the perfect spot for anyone looking to escape the busy world and recharge their batteries. Thank you Janie and Bill for sharing it with us!

We had the BEST time at this beautiful peaceful lake side retreat! We can’t wait to come back!!!
We did not want to leave this beautiful place! It was the perfect place for a family get together. The owners Janie and Bill are so nice and easy to work with. They responded quickly to all our questions and provided us with all the information we needed to plan our trip. The cabins were very clean, well equipped, & adorably decorated! The linens were provided and the comfortable beds were all made up. The beautiful fireplaces heated the cabins very well and made for cozy mornings and evenings. There were 12 of us and we rented both cabins. We had plenty of space and were able to have large family dinners. We enjoyed kayaking, canoeing, paddle boating, and a couple of us even jumped in the crystal clear lake on this late September weekend. The lake truly is peaceful and tranquil. There is a large fire pit which made for spectacular bonfires. It was so fun. We are planning to come back and can’t wait! We would definitely recommend this place and give it a 5 Star+ Rating. It far surpassed our expectations! We absolutely loved it!!
