I spent 5 nights at this little cottage on the lake as a solo traveler with my dog.
Pictures are very accurate. This is a rustic older cottage and not luxury by any means, however the ad never promotes luxury.
Things go wrong and things break, and as a frequent cottagers you have to roll with the punches and solve any little hiccups that you encounter. I would rent this cottage again for sure.
A little close to the road then I had hoped for, as I love quiet and solitude when leaving the city, so you do hear road traffic on the dirt road, and it can be busy at times. The fence helps with traffic lights at night.
The hiking trails are magnificent, I rented in the Fall and its was just gorgeous. I will add that the hiking trails would be considered advance hiking and not necessarily for beginners or young children.
The back patio door locks and the front door could use a little work to help lock better, thats if if people have to have a locked door. This did not bother me at all and I rented solo.
I had a wonderful small get away, having a small fire in the wood stove in the morning while sipping coffee was such a treat and having an out fire at the pit was so nice eith a glass of wine after dinner on a cool evening.
Older furniture as you would expect in an older cottage. I could do away with the carpet in the bedrooms as I have allergies, but as I mentioned previously I did not let the small things effect me or my stay.
David is very responsive to inquires and questions and I met friendly people in the area walking along the roads to the hiking trails. I would add the vrbo ad that renters must bring septic friendly toilet paper to protect your septic tank, thank you David for making sure thete was dome at the cottage. The steps down to the dock are steep when you not used to them, I would have taken the canoe out around the lake, but got busy hiking around the forest as I love to photograph.
Great little spot, thank you David for everything and I really enjoyed my stay at your little cottage on the lake 😁 Kimberly
