Long Term Renters

  • 5 of 5

We are senior retirees who get away from the Texas heat in the summer. We spent July and August, 2014 in this cottage and we couldn't have been more pleased. It has all the amenities needed for a long term stay, and it is just as nice as the description implies. Although it is not right on the lake, there is a nice view of the lake from the porch, and it is close enough that we could hear the loons. The last day we were there, we were visited by a small black bear which came out of the woods next to the house. Additionally, Marsha was a pleasure to work with.

Great winter getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was exactly what we were looking for. We wanted the log cabin feel with all the amenities of a cozy home. The house was very well appointed and clean. We stayed for 5 days and wish we could've spent more.

Beautiful Property. As described.

  • 5 of 5

Property was beautiful, clean, and exactly as described. Nicely furnished and convenient location. Large amount of off road parking. Suited me just perfectly. Three adults stayed in the three bedrooms and all were satisfied. Owners were a pleasure to deal with and promptly returned deposit. I would recommend this property and I would stay there again.

start to finish, this rental property is perfection. the owner was a delight to work with and beyond accommodating. the house is welcoming, well appointed and leaves the renter wanting for nothing. it truly made for an ideal getaway, relaxing, comfortable and ideally located. so close to the canadian border - don't forget your passport!!!

i can't wait to return and spend even more time at this immaculate, peaceful and rustic home. see you next year!!!

Great house, difficult owner

  • 3 of 5

My wife, 2 young kids and I had a great week at this Island Pond house. The house has 3 bedrooms and a nice open living / dining room set-up. We especially liked the large wrap around deck, as did my sister and elderly mother when they visited mid-week. It’s a short walk (about 10 minutes) to a small, private and sandy beach that is perfect for young children. The house is on the local circumference road around Island Pond and the road has low traffic volume that makes the area quiet and relaxing. It’s a great cycling location.

We experienced two downsides with the house. First, the mattresses in the upper bedroom and one lower bedroom were very soft and uncomfortable. Second was the response from the Owner over our security deposit upon returning home from the vacation. Our 6 year old accidentally broke a glass vase in the living room. The Owner retained 25% of our security deposit, which we considered excessive over a simple accident. When we questioned it, she became very angry, accused us of having “many more people than allowed during our lease” (we had six total, the house listing reads “sleeps eight”), and then told us that the house was in terrible condition when we left. We spent several hours ensuring we left the house extremely neat and clean.

We highly recommend Island Pond and the Northeast Kingdom for a family vacation. We do not recommend renting from this Owner.

Owner's Response: This was the first and only time anything in our home was broken or missing and we felt it necessary to keep part of the security deposit. I researched the replacement cost for the vase, and let the tenants know, including tax and shipping it came to more than the $50 I kept for the damages. I also sent a copy of our correspondence to HomeAway support and their response confirmed my actions were justified. I regret any misunderstanding with past tenants and am sincerely confident this was just a one time occurrence. You can see from the review what a great spot Island Pond is as well as my centrally located home. If you've never been to Island Pond it is certainly worth a visit.
