Awesome House on the Lake

To call this a cottage would be a disservice; it's a beautiful house on an exceptional lake. Everything is exactly as pictured and described. The house is complete with everything necessary to enjoy your stay, including Kayaks, a peddle boat and many floatation aids for lounging in the water. The waterfront is 4' deep at the dock, and 8-10' deep at the raft. Perfect for most to swim, but no walk in spot for smaller children.In mid July while we were there the water was a beautiful 79F. The grounds are spacious and clean; There is a fire pit. There are plenty of chairs for outdoor seating, and a terrific BBQ for all your cooking needs. It's in a nice quiet location, with plenty of privacy. We'll be back in 2020!

Everything right!

The place was fantastic...the furnishings, dock, water...comfort! It was only 700 Km from Boston, tranquil and interesting. We’ll be back next summer.
