We just had a family vacation for 18 members. We rented the island cottage and another house a short distance down the coast. We enjoyed canoeing, sailing and swimming between the cottages. Walking and riding bikes around the island was fun with interesting spots to explore the shrine, fisk farm, looking for fossils, and of course going to the ice cream parlor for "Creamees". Some people explored Montreal, shopping to Essex, Burlington, Teddy Bear Museum and Shelburne Museum. All were easy day trips and with time to be "home" for a family dinner. Followed by breath-taking sunsets, beach bonfires with family time. The owner was helpful and accommodating with getting into the unit and as needed during our stay.
This cottage was super clean and well stocked. Cathy was great in helping us when we had special circumstances! The best part of this property is that it is very quiet and it is "on the lake" with no road in front of the house! We are looking forward to staying again--thank you Cathy!
Had a fantastic two week stay at the House. Our 3 kids and dog had a blast swimming. And the pictures don't do it justice -- the shade deck by the dock was cool and shady on the hottest days. And the main deck allowed spectacular views of the sunset. House also is very private with plenty of open space and shoreline. Owner was very accessible and accomodating. We hope to return soon. My Response Thank you for your review. We sure enjoyed how much fun you and your family had. We love it when we see guests enjoying our cottage as our family did. Many establishments remarked on your family like you were old-time visitors here. We look forward to having you here next year.
My husband and I (and our dog) just got back from our third year at this cottage. We were married right there the first year we went. We look forward to going every year and it never disappoints. The cottage is perfect. Tons of room, so many thoughtful little touches, lots of necessary items that we didn't have to worry about bringing ourselves. Loved waking up to the view of the lake (from the bedroom window) before we even got up, loved hearing the water as we woke up and fell asleep. The place was super clean upon our arrival as always, the lawn was freshly mowed, deck was clean, etc. We loved the peace and quiet (no immediate neighbors) and being able to cook and grill and fish and just relax! We look forward to next year. Already counting the days!
If you are looking for that classic lake cottage experience this location delivers. The cottage is very comfortable with a large kitchen, perfect views of the lake and mountains, a great deck, dock and swimming area. Bike the island and further, or walk the beautiful stretch of road along the lake. Bring a kayak to explore even more. If you are looking for a getaway this is a special property and Cathy the owner is great. We would return no question.
