The lake house was selected for a 'first cousin's reunion'.

  • 5 of 5

Let's start with - it was a perfect get away spot for us. The house is vintage New Hampshiresk with a bunk house within 20 yards of the main house. Lovely setting. Easy water access and truly one of, if not the cleanest, lake I've ever seen. 9 cousins all showed up, average age of 65 +/- 10 years. The bunk house worked out for the cousin in the worst shape (walker bound). The bunk house is plain and simple with bunk beds and a pull out couch with a shower, bathroom and minimalist kitchen setup. The main house became the center for all visiting and eating... very easy to have 4 or 5 folks literally working in the kitchen with space to spare (several foodies in the group). The kitchen had everything we needed and was clean and tidy. The living and dining room were lovely but hardly ever got used as the screened in porch was simply spacious and outstanding with a table that sat 9 of us comfortably.. The bedrooms (all upstairs) were all in great shape and comfortable. The only thing to consider for us 'of age' is the number of times in a nite you had to go up and down the stairs to the first floor bath room... a half bath upstairs would have gone a long way for us. :) The outside fire pit, with supplied wood, was used each evening and the loons.... wow... impressive. So great reviews by our group. Thanks to Kate and family for accommodating us!

My family and I stayed for a 4 day weekend, and it was absolutely amazing. The house was stocked with literally everything you could need and the place was huge! We all enjoyed the lake and the weather held for us so that was lovely. It was like stepping back in time visiting this adorable cottage. The owners mother came over the introduced herself and she was super nice.

We are all so thankful and happy that we got to spend some much needed time together rekindling our friendships and selves! Thank you again so much!! Highly recommend!!

Nice family location

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful lake. Clean and lovely camp. Full beds are small, grill wasn't working correctly but owners made several attempts to help out. The bunk house very old sofa needs to be replaced with a good adult bed! Loved the area.

great place, great weather, great owner

  • 5 of 5

Large group of friends here who like to take summer vacations together. This place accomodated our needs wonderfully. It even had a separate bunk house where our new parent friends could stay with their child. Great lakeside access and features indside and outside (fire pit, an abundance of adirondak and lawn chairs, picnic tables, puzzles, games, laundry, etc.). This place also came nicely stocked with towels, linens and paper goods. We had a few unexpected hiccups, but Kate handled them positively and most expediently.

Thank you for letting us use your space and home; we had a wonderful experience.

Once again our family of three generations had an amazing stay. We love the lake and the property provides all our needs--although another toilet in the main house would be much appreciated. The beach access and shallow water around the dock is perfect for all ages and swimming ability. We hope to return.

It is a charming rustic cabin, with a great location on a lake with a view.

  • 4 of 5

We did not know what to expect and was a little surprised at how rustic the cabin/house is. Love the charm Katie has kept with the home. Dishes and toys and other home items from the 50's/60's. However some of the items need to be updated, like the stove/oven and microwave. We had two homes on the lake and used this one as the base so we had 27 people there eating and playing for 5 days. The large gas grill helped with our cooking needs and we had an abundant supply of firewood for the pit and the fireplace for heat.

Katie took care of us whenever we had questions and got us whatever we needed to make our stay comfortable. The fire pit and the docks were the highlight of the week. With us sitting around until wee hours of the morning. The kids went swimming and boating even though the water was freezing to the adults.

I would suggest a mosquito zapper. We don't have them in CA, we made some citronella candles out of Budweiser cans and left them for the next people along with children chairs and a blow up mattress.

If we choose to do another stay like this one we would definitely go back! Thank you to Katie and her parents!!
