Absolutely amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Nod-Away during the end of August, and it was our first trip to Lake Willoughby. Nod-Away was an absolute gem of a find . . . the cottage was adorable, right on the lake - neat, clean, and really cute little touches (neat antiques, old fashioned games, etc.). We were 4 adults and 2 kids, and very comfortable there! One of the best touches was the activity shed - complete with 4 kayaks, a canoe, a tube, and lots more! We absolutely loved this place, and before we left, we all agreed we were booking here next summer, in a heartbeat!! We loved it so much!

Tim has a wonderful camp on the lake. Excellent beach with firepit, and perfect blend of rustic charm and creature comforts inside. Kayaks are top notch!

Perfect spot right on the water!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful cottage. Comfortable, tidy and cozy. There was everything we needed, even wood for the firepit. Great outdoor seating with awesome views of the water and mountains. We loved exploring the lake with the kayaks provided! We will be back next season!

Lovely week on Lake Willoughby

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in the Nod Away house. Especially loved the use of kayaks, and we paddled every morning. We explored the nearby towns, read books, had lovely blue skies most of the week, and gorgeous sunsets. A truly relaxing place, beautifully situated for views of the lake and the Gap. There were a few windows with broken cranks that did not open, but overall the space was cozy and comfortable. Thank you, Tim, for sharing this special spot. We hope to come back.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay Kathy. Another guest mentioned the windows and I have ordered the parts needed to repair them, which should be done in a few weeks. Thank you for your feedback.
