Amazing Cottage Get Away!
Was the best week I had in a LONG time.
The owner and brother(or co-owner) are so amazingly great. Will make your stay the best they can with helpful maps, amazing response, and flat out classiness!!
I salute both of them.
I will be returning to this cottage yearly!
Great waterfront, dock, community, neighbours.
Cottage was clean, fully supplied with dishes, cookware, all amenities listed, and more.
Was blown away buy the hospitality of the 2 brothers.
Can see this being a yearly go to spot for summer. Also knowing it's open yr. round may try a winter escape too.
For anyone wanting serenity, I highly stand behind this cottage as Perfect!
To the brothers.......
See you soon guys!
Thank you very much for your review. I'm glad we were able to answer all your questions and provide assistance when needed. You are most welcome to rent again in the future.
Lovely little cottage
Although the cottage living space is fairly small, if you have great weather, it won't matter as you will be outside! The layout of bedrooms is perfect with the king and 2 single beds in the main cottage and then the queen and bunk beds out in the bunky.
Main concern was the storage of food in the kitchen. With a family of 5 (which includes my 3 sons who are 23, 20 and 14) the fridge is way too small so pack extra coolers to hold food. The size of the fridge is apartment - extremely small. There are no cupboards to put your food away so we ended up having to leave the dry food in bags on the kitchen floor. Only other downside is there is absolutely no view of the water. But I had ready that in previous posts. But truly...NO VIEW. The shared dock is for all the cottage that don't have water access. We totally lucked out as the week we went, the other cottages were not using it. Can't be guaranteed that though.
The water is amazing and having access to the canoe was terrific! Bring life jackets as there aren't any at the cottage, or at least not in any of the closets that I looked in!
Overall, we enjoyed our last minute rental of the property and thankfully the weather was perfect. Oh and beware, VRBO sets the rates in USD - so that was a bit misleading as well.
One more thing, bring an umbrella for the table as it gets afternoon sun....for hours!
Don't forget to pack ALL linens including hand towels, bathmat, dish cloths, etc....you need to bring EVERYTHING!!
Thank you for your response. We are aware of the fridge size, and had it addressed this past week. We were able to remove a cabinet and install a full size fridge. Hopefully, if you come back you will be able to enjoy this. Thanks again for your review. I'm glad you had a good experience at our cottage.
Despite looking small on the outside, the cottage is very spacious, with enough room to hold my party of 7 without us feeling like we were constantly on top of each other. The detached queen/ bunk bed room really helped add to the privacy we each had. The house was very clean when we arrived, and check-in was effortless and self-mediated. The canoe was definitely an added bonus as Mary Lake is quite gorgeous and secluded, so it's perfect for exploring without being interrupted by other boaters. The owner Craig ensured that there were more than enough paddles, as well as life-jackets. The area is very quiet, and we felt very safe during our stay. The house itself is a bit out in the open, but this wasn't too bothersome as the area containing the fire pit was partially shielded by the cottage, so we didn't feel too exposed when we chose to relax outside. The dock is beautiful, and very accessible with a staircase leading down the hill to the water. We did share it with another family who was renting, but there was enough space for both of us to dock our canoes during the day, as well as relax and enjoy the scenery.
Craig was very thorough in the information he gave us about the cottage, and even included helpful tidbits like detailed directions to the cottage off of highway 11, and local amenities and places of interest with their addresses. He was always very prompt in answering any questions we had, and I definitely appreciated his transparency in informing me about precautions he had taken after recent high water levels in the area, such as changing the water filters.
Overall the cottage and renter provided us with an amazing experience! Being first time cottagers we didn't really know what to expect, but I can soundly say that this experience definitely gave us a great standard to hold any future experiences to. Thanks Craig!
Thank you so much for your review. I am glad you had a positive experience, as that is what we hope to provide everyone who stays at our cottage! Thanks again, and you are welcome to visit anytime in the future.
Quaint, comfortable, clean cottage - nice area for hiking
This cottage is quite sweet and comfortable, and the access to water (across a small, quiet road) is convenient. Craig was responsive and very helpful. The view of the lake from the cottage was almost non-existent which was disappointing, but it's just a hop, skip and jump to the dock so we didn't mind. We had the shared dock all to ourselves (it was weekday after all), and Mary Lake is so pretty. Bring your own towels and linens (I missed that in the description). The fire-pit is awesome, so don't forget firewood! There is a nice walk up the hill to a lookout point, and Mary Lake is a close drive to Huntsville hiking trails. You'll love it here!
Thank you for your review. I'm glad you were able to experience nature through the trails I provided information on. You are most welcome anytime in the future, and I am glad you were able to enjoy your time at our cottage!
