Stayed at Robert's beautifully situated cottage for our daughter's graduation in nearby Hamilton. Robert was a great, attentive and flexible host. Would definitely stay there again.

Had a nice stay at this remote cabin. It's a lovely property 10 minutes from Colgate University. The house is well appointed and comfortable. If I'm pressed to point out anything that could be improved, I'd wish for Wifi access, but honestly, I really did not miss it all that much. Others will have noted the deer heads on the wall... my 3 year old daughter had no issues with them at all. Thanks for a nice stay Robert.

Lovely home on a beautiful piece of land. Robert was available by text or phone before and during our stay.

Response from Robert:
As for the bed is only a-year-old . I am not wealthy so therefore I purchased only $1000 mattress . As for their food in the refrigerators that is there for everyone's use including myself and my family . I'm sure there was plenty of room for two days worth of food that you may have purchased . As for personal items they belong there because my home is a personal place . Unfortunately you can't make everyone happy . Best wishes , Robert
