Cozy, clean cottage, beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful girls weekend at this cottage. The place was very clean, cozy and inviting. Tom left a detailed welcome note on the table as well as a map and a town beach pass for us to use. Also a box of baked goods, thank you Tom! We loved sitting out on the big front porch across from the lake and we visited the winery which is in walking distance. Tom was available to answer any questions that we had before and during our stay. I would love to come back in the future!

Very clean cottage, fully stocked

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was very comfortable, ample space and clean for our stay with 4 adults and 1 toddler. As promised, the kitchen really does have every implement you need. Washer and dryer on site. Note: the twin beds are adjustable firmness, you have to dial to the setting you want. This was somewhat of a puzzle to us initially. Tom is a great host and gave great recommendations on things to do in the area.

My husband and I rented out the cottage at Lake Waramug, we also brought our little Westie! We had an amazing time. Tom was so helpful and and accommodating. We enjoyed relaxing down at the beach, the bed was comfortable, and cottage was very clean. Everything we needed at the cottage was easily accessible - Tom thought of everything, he's a Pro!

Wonderful, relaxing weekend

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely weekend in this cottage. The lake was crystal clear and great for swimming, the cottage is right near an inn that serves breakfast (which is quite convenient), and the surrounding area is lovely, with little towns to explore. Perfect for a getaway weekend.
