“We can’t think of a better place to get stranded…20+ inches of snow, a blazing fire 7 hot chocolate (with a touch of peppermint Schnapps) what a day!”

I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had at the cottage!  You certainly thought of everything and anything a person could need.  I will share a funny little story with you.  Since my sister and I planned the trip we were referring to this as our "LL Bean" vacation - well, what a surprise and I might add a good laugh we had that first night when we found the teddy bear with the LL Bean fanny pack and the LL Bean blankets on our beds.  We knew at that very moment this was going to be a vacation filled with wonderful memories and it was.

Please share with Van, that my husband enjoyed hearing the history of the cottage - I hope he didn't bother Van with too many questions!

 Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful cottage with us!

“We are very interested in renting again at the close of the summer. It is such a wonderful place and there are so many places for us yet to explore!”

     Family from Cambridge, Ma

We really enjoyed the cottage; everything we needed was there.  We've gone "rustic" in the past, your place had everything, so I sure DIDN'T miss all that packing.  The lake was beautiful and wonderfully quiet. There were days we were the only ones out there.

Fishing was a big success, always plenty of fish to catch at any time of day.  The boys 
talk about returning. Other than 1 day mountain biking at Killington,  time was spent in the kayaks, fishing poles in hand. We had a very relaxing week.

Thanks for another great
vacation week. We lucked out with the weather. The kids watch a TV show called
Scrubs on the comedy channel. One of the actors was seated at the table next to
us in Harry's. He was performing Shakespeare at the Westin Playhouse. Kids
got autographs. Big thrill!”
 Family from New Rochelle, NY

We had a wonderful vacation and will definitely return next summer. Your cottage is so wonderful and you truly think of everything. My friends and I were amazed at how well equipped it is.  Lake Amherst is a perfect lake for the kids. They spent hours playing on the dock and trampoline. We took a beautiful kayak trip down the lake inlet heading towards Hawk. It was so amazingly peaceful and beautiful. The dogs also loved the trip. It was so nice not having to kennel them.

Once a gain we thoroughly enjoyed your home on Lake Amherst! A good
 time was had by all and with the kids being a little older this year we
 were able to utilize your lake toys more completely...Thanks Again.”
