Loved everything, except...
I hate to leave a less than 5 star review of this place because everything about this place was good, except for the house being infested with horse flies.
They were everywhere, in the bathroom, in the kitchen, all over the windows. We had to keep our bedroom doors shut to keep them out. There was a crack where the wall and ceiling met by the door and that seemed to be the location where they would enter. There were also a few wasps inside the kitchen, but we killed them too and there was no longer a problem.
Fortunately they left us 2 flyswatters to fend them off, but after killing at least 100 of them we realized the problem was never going away.
It's unfortunate because I loved the view and location. It was remote but still accessible to a gas station and local store with breakfast, coffee, and lunch.
The house was cozy and warm. The hot water worked great and the heating/cooling worked fine too. They provided us with plenty of towels, hand soap, dish soap and there was coffee in the freezer, along with filters and a large coffee pot.
The water, while clean and drinkable, did have a strong sulfur/egg smell, but it's understandable because it's well water.
Overall the place met our needs because we were biking Kingdom Trails all day and only slept there. However, it would have been very nice to come back to a place at the end of the day that wasn't infested with horse flies buzzing around all the time.
If I was looking for a place to spend more time, I would have been very frustrated spending more time there with the fly situation.
I hope the owners fix this problem. I would not stay here again under those conditions, as much as I liked the place/price/location.
Thank you for your honest review. We are so sorry that you had to deal with a numerous amount of flies. This time of year is a bad time with flies up there. We have had a problem with cluster flies however the house is usually buttoned up by this time every year. We extended the closing up of the house because the weather was so nice. If you were interested in staying again we would certainly compensate you but I really think it was because of the time of year. This is something we will certainly address and hopefully you will enjoy your next stay.

It was exactly as written.
Beautiful location. Comfy place. Responsive owners.
Private Cabin with Majestic Mountain Views
The cozy cabin was just as pictured with awesome mountain views! Check-in and out was easy and the owners responded quickly to any questions. We didn't have cell service in the area so really appreciated the excellent Internet. Everything we needed to relax was there. We watched sunsets out the front picture window and then had a good selection of movies on dvd. During the day we were out hiking, biking, swimming--all the NEK has to offer. It was a short downhill drive to Lake Willoughby and the general store. Up the hill is an excellent farmstand. The beds were comfortable for a good nights sleep. Look forward to returning!
Thank you so much for your review! We are happy to be able to share our home away from home and we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. It really is a beautiful area! We also look forward to your return visit.
Beautiful getaway with a view
My husband, our 2 dogs and I love coming to the NEK and this was one of our favorite stays! Stephanie and Jeremy’s house is perfect for those who want to get away from the urban hustle and bustle, beautifully located near lake Willoughby. The house has anything you need including excellent internet (not that I would recommend using it much while there on vacation), a smoker, microwave, stove, coffee maker etc., and comfortable mattresses. Very close by is a country store that had the essentials, and about 15 min drive is a supermarket. Communication was easy and prompt. Thank you guys again, we hope to be back!
Thank you for your kind words. We just want to be able to share our little slice of heaven and hope you enjoy it there as much as we do. Hope you visit again soon!
Beautiful views. We had a great relaxing stay at the cabin.
Exactly what we needed
Three of us were in the area for a Plein Air event in Westmore. This was a perfect location! The home was cozy, clean and afforded all that we needed. The plus was the outstanding VIEW!
Location was very convenient to everything around Lake Willoughby.
Looking forward to future trips there.
