WOULD LOVE TO REVISIT
September 1, 2014
I have just completed my vacation at this cottage and I enjoyed my time there. Communication with Rob was excellent from booking to departure.
THE CAMP...I arrived last Saturday on 8/23. It was just me and my dogs. I did not use most of the cottage. Only walked upstairs once to see it, although, the view of the lake from up there is beautiful. Too difficult for my senior dogs to walk up the stairs.
There is a microwave, coffee maker, teapot, stove, refrigerator, cable TV, VCR, and DVD player...all the amenities of home. The TV works fine unless you are trying to watch a VCR movie. The volume does not come through too loud and there is a high pitch that is disturbing. I did not try the DVD player. I was looking for a radio for music. I did not find one. There is a wood stove in the living room that I did not use. The bathroom is small with a shower. The bedroom on the first floor is where I slept. It was convenient. The bed was a bit hard, however, I did not expect it to be like my mattress at home.
There is a fenced in yard that I LOVED, especially for my dogs. There are horseshoes that I did not use. A tether ball, which my dogs enjoyed (so much that I purchased a new one.) A fire pit with wood available, which I did not use. There are boats available. The dock is nice to sit on and relax as well as the wrap around porch and picnic table. Easy entry into the water, which was great. Not too cold or warm. I had great weather and floated on the water a few days. I was sad when I arrived that there was not a gas grill. I was going to bring my travel grill and decided not to. There is a charcoal grill that I did not utilize.
I like to go running. If you want to do this, I would leave the yard and take a right. There is plenty of room on the road to run this direction. If you go left, there is not any paved area for you to run. Be safe.
If you need any swimming or ski supplies, leave the yard, take a left and approx. 1/2 mile on the left is a store. The staff was great, they inflated my float, had great clothing, and friendly prices.
Shopping is not too far away in Bridgton.
Again, thank you Rob for allowing me to rent your chalet. I had a very nice time.
