Children are allways welcome, however, there is a spiral staircase that leads to the terrace level. I have two children and when they were 3- yrs old, this was a safety concern for us as the railings are about 8' apart and there is nothing to 'block' them from accessing this area.

Nice home to stay in but barely waterfront

  • 4 of 5

Pro's: Nice house to stay in, grateful they allowed my two dogs, close to things to do (state park, winery, places to eat).

Con's: a/c vents are LOUD when a/c running, any movement on the bed made very LOUD sounds, barely on the water, barely a view of the lake.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback. I will have the A.C. system serviced this week and check out the vent issue. We will also be replacing the box spring and mattress very soon in the Master Bedroom

very nice little cottage with lots of charm.

  • 4 of 5

The large main room with kitchen dr/lr was perfect for us. Lots of room for cooking dining and tv. Main bedroom was great and lower level was roomy with natural light. Bunk bed was too low and small for adults. The futon was nice. We would have preferred two twin beds instead of the bunk.

Overall, we loved the house and would rent again. Owner was nice and responsive to questions.
