Perfect mix of lake and village
July 2013 will be my third vacation at the Waterfall Cottage. I think it's ideal, the perfect mix of a quiet lakeside retreat and easy access to the village. The water temperature is perfect for long swims. There's a canoe to paddle across the lake and look for loons, ospreys and eagles. Day's Market, where you can get everything from Bloody Mary fixings to great lobster rolls, is a short walk over the bridge. The front porch of the cabin is a wonderful, peaceful place to have morning coffee and read, write and think. There are four comfortable sleeping areas- two with queens and two with twins. The bedrooms downstairs have doors. The upstairs areas are separated by the balcony walkway - and cushioned by the white noise of the waterfall. I stay upstairs and find it private and comfortable. The shared area in front of the cabin is rarely used by the other residents of the Gilman Loop - so it's private and offers a large open area for picnics and cookouts.
I loved it!!
I had a great week. The lake was clear and warm enough to swim any time of the night or day. I canoed with the loons. The house fit 7 people comfortably. I stayed in the upstairs loft and had friends on the other side and we had enough privacy. The gushing of the waterfall created a wall of sound between the rooms and white noise for sleeping. It was ideal. It was fun being so close to Day's to run over and get butter for pancakes or limes for mojitos. And the neighbors were friendly.
I can't wait to come back next year.

I am looking to put wifi internet for summer 2011. Our huge flagstone fireplace in livingroom is great on those chilly evenings and the views of the waterfall and lake from the newly glassed in front porch/diningroom is breathless.
