      Tranquil spot

      The place needed to be cleaned when we arrived. It was a very last minute reservation the day of arrival. Devra had someone out immediately. She and her daughter are both super nice and very quick to respond to all our questions. The home was well stocked with dry goods and seasonings. My 76 year old mother and I were in town for a funeral and this cottage was the perfect place to relax. We enjoyed the back closed in porch at night and the three season room every morning for breakfast. We did have a family member carry our luggage up and down the 35 cement steps! My mom is in pretty good shape and handled them well on her own. There is a sturdy railing! We met several neighbors while walking and all were very nice. Great quiet spot on the lake! Glad we found it :)
