Location is great! Cottage needs updates.
Pro's: This cottage is set in a beautiful setting and you have a great view of it from the nice screened-in porch. It's a cute little cottage that was built a long time ago and has been divided up to make it into a 2 bedroom (which are partitioned by walls that go partway to the ceiling and have curtains for doors). The beach, use of kayaks and rowboats (and playground if you have kids) are excellent. The firepit is nice too. Great hot water supply.
Cons: The cottage is in need of updates including some very simple things. The showerhead and bathroom sink need new fixtures or should be replaced. The bathroom sink is missing the stopper which meant when my contact lens cover dropped in the sink it went down the drain, and my husband had to get it out; and of course I had to throw it out. I'd suggest laying a towel in the sink when handling things that are smaller than the opening. The old fashioned medicine cabinet couldn't be closed. The lighting is terrible in the bathroom. The toilet appeared clean and well maintained but the sink and floors didn't appear clean - some of it is probably age of the sink, flooring and molding as well as the hard water. It might just be the old tile and moldings that make it look dirty because the rest of the cottage was clean. There's a full length mirror which is so old that it's really useless. I was going to a 5 day professional training and wanted to check my appearance before leaving every day and couldn't. A new full length door mirror would be really good and they're very inexpensive. The last thing would be to know that the bedrooms are so tiny that the beds are closely surrounded by 3 walls. Since you have to bring your own linens, you have to climb on the bed to make it, because there's no room to stand between the bed and walls. We found the mattresses to be very uncomfortable; and I'm guessing they're old. The person who is sleeping on the inside has to climb over the other person to get out of bed. The beds are a big part of what brought my rating down, because we had a hard time sleeping every night. Each bedroom had one wall outlet high up on the wall. so if you have electronics that you keep in the bedroom overnight to charge, keep that in mind for the length of cord you bring. The bathroom has no electrical outlet.
These are all things that might not bother other people and not even something that they notice or care about or might be offset by the location, beach and outdoors.
We stayed here for a soccer tournament on the area. It was cozy, plenty of space, warm water, stove and refrigerator/freezer were great. We kayaked as much as we could. Would stay here again for sure.
