We enjoyed this rental the last weekend in June and it was just lovely! We were in the area for my cousins wedding in Bridport, and needed a rental for my family of 4 plus my parents and brother and the house fit us all very nicely. It is indeed very secluded, there is no cell service (for Verizon at least) unless you are at the bottom of the street, but if you are looking to get away and have privacy this is most certainly a great spot. We wish we could've taken advantage of the outdoor space a little more (there was a great fire pit right outside and a good size deck), but we were on the go most of the time we were there unfortunately! Christa was a great host, and answered any and all questions we had. All in all it was a great weekend!
This is the place for a welcoming and cozy retreat. It is completely private, surrounded by woodlands, and has a huge window by the dining table, providing the perfect spot to sip coffee while watching wildlife and birds. I enjoy cooking and appreciate the well-equipped kitchen. I have stayed here twice, and have made many meals which we enjoyed by the viewing window, or on the spacious deck. The owner is gracious and prompt in responding to inquiries, and has a nearby contact to help with any concerns. My stays have been problem-free, but it is nice to know support is nearby if needed.
I regret that I am not a writer, because I think that this would be an ideal place to write a novel, or at least some fabulous short stories!
Christa was very communicative and helpful. She certainly made us feel welcome and made it clear she was reachable if anything was needed. Private and in a beautiful setting. Great if you like to hike. Crystal clear Lake Dunmore is 15 minutes away.
The house is great. Comfortable furnishings and beds. If anything I think the rental is understated in Air B & B - especially if you judge by the photo. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. Great experience.
Christa was great, communicating and helping at every step of the process. The house and setting are perfect (tranquil, clean, comfortable), and exactly how they are described. There is nothing negative to say, the entire experience was exactly what my family and I needed.
