Serenity with reality
The camp was exactly what is described; quaint, quiet, and peaceful. The sleeping arrangements were spectacular, the bedding & mattress was above standard; thank you, Dolores!
The lake view was beautiful with its blue, purple, and pink sunset to the early morning sun and shimmery on the water. It was a great get away! It was a little dirty in the bathroom and kitchen (the garbage was leftover from last visitors) so the camp stunk a little but we opened windows and let the beautiful breeze flow through the camp. There was also construction on the road so we had to wait quite a bit to exit and enter the street; patience is a virtue right?! Overall it was a safe, quiet and beautiful place to lay our heads; we traveled throughout our stay and were barely there but when we were it was very nice. Thank you!
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 :)
Thank you for your review. I’m glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to have you visit again under pleasanter circumstances.
Weekend on Pickeral Lake
From the moment we opened the door of the cottage it was clear to us that the Owner took meticulous care of this property and provided everything we could possibly need for a wonderful stay. From the beautiful colors of each room freshly painted and carefully decorated. Too the spectacular views of the lake from the front porch and sun room . in addition to the front deck and yard, the kayaks for our use, and a good grill to cook on . I could go on and on but I am supposed to summarize in this review. I just want to say we have stayed at probably 15 to 20 cottages over the last 30 years and Devra's home ranks in the top 4 . so thank you for sharing your home with us.
The only thing negative I could say about this property is That Renters over fifty years old and those of any age not in good shape. Consider the thirty five stairs you have to take down to the cottage and back up to your car and access to the water is very stony and difficult to enter. but these are well worth the effort.
But these are things that I'm sure Devra would change if possible but I don't believe that it is I'm just saying be careful.
My wife and I will defiantly try to rent again may be in the Fall When the leaves are in color and next summer.
Thank you for your review. I agree the steps are challenging especially with luggage, but like you I feel it is worth the trip. I look forward to your next visit.
