  • This place is a keeper!


    We just returned home after spending 6 wonderful days at Tony's home. It feels like a home and not a vacation rental. The kitchen is well-stocked, the beds are comfortable, plenty of places for everyone to hang out and still have some space to themselves. We loved that there were kayaks and a paddleboard, along with lake toys and beach towels. They have really thought of everything to make your stay amazing. I'm going to miss the view from the upstairs deck in the morning. There's lots to do in the area in terms of hikes or daytrips. Tony was very responsive and a great host. Do yourself a favor and book a stay. You won't regret it.

  • Wonderful Well-Stocked House!


    We had a great time at this cottage! The house was stocked with lots of games, puzzles, DVDs and fun things for the lake. We loved all the kayaks and paddle board. The kitchen had everything you needed to cook and bake. We especially loved that there were two mini fridges for extra cold storage. The split floorplan was perfect for our group -- my husband, two kids and I stayed on the bottom floor while the other 4 adults took the upstairs rooms. That was great for keeping the kids from waking everyone in the morning since we had a mini fridge, TV and our own bathroom down there. Our favorite spot, though, was the upstairs back porch with views of Lake Santeetlah! We were sad to leave!

  • Wonderful Family Trip


    Tony was a wonderful host, and quick to answer any questions or problems we had. The property was perfectly located on the lack and a close drive to additional fishing, and hiking. Beautiful views each morning and evening from the porch!!

  • Tail of the Dragon


    We wanted to find a place in Robbinsville close to Deals Gap. This popped up in a recommendation, and it was perfect for our trip. The host responded to our questions quickly and efficiently. The check in process was straight forward and painless. The garage was big enough to accommodate 6 motorcycles, all of which were touring bikes. Goldwings, Indians, Can Am, K1600 and Yamaha Star liner. We couldn't have been happier with the property and our trip was a big success.

  • Perfect Lake Getaway


    If you are wondering if this is a good place to book...allow us to answer: YES! From the moment you walk in you will feel at home away from home...only better because of the beautiful lake. The house is perfectly furnished...beautiful decks and a perfect place to swim, kayak, and fish off the dock. The owners are great to communicate with and you can sense the house is loved. Stop searching and book it!
