Wonderful cottage near Lunenburg
This is the first summer this property has been available for rent under the new owners. We were just a little hesitant when we started looking for a property in the Lunenburg area because it had no reviews at the time, but the photos looked so interesting that we decided to take a chance.....one of our better decisions! The house sits high on a hill, surrounded on 3 sides with trees and a lovely view of the water from the back side of the house. The owners have put much time and effort into making this a little gem. It is a beautiful combination of the old and new. The house was built long ago, disassembled, and rebuilt on this property by a previous owner. Don't be fooled by the old appearance, as there is every modern convenience inside. We loved the old beams, the floors, the old doors, etc.....loved too, the comfortable sofas, the cozy throws for cool evenings, the nice linens, the fully stocked kitchen, the comfortable bed and all the extra touches the owners added to make this house a place for us return to every evening after a day of sightseeing. There is nice patio right off the living area, and they have added a pergola to cover. We did not use the gas grill on the patio, but did enjoy the outdoor fire pit on the side of the house with the pretty Adirondack chairs. The downstairs has an open concept living area, a nice sized bedroom, and bathroom with a shower. There is a small laundry off the entry hall with a new washer and dryer. Upstairs is a loft den with TV, an assortment of movies, games and a puzzle for any rainy days. There is also another bedroom with 2 queen beds and a bathroom with tub. It is just a short drive into Lunenburg, and we used the local independent grocery store to purchase food. There is a beautiful view of the sunrise for early risers, but unfortunately the sun sets behind the trees, so no gorgeous sunsets. The owners were wonderful to work with and answered any questions we had promptly. The property is very quiet and we were lucky enough to see the deer who make their home on the property most mornings and evenings. The ONLY thing that made it slightly less than perfect was the house that was built on adjoining property just to the back of this.....it only partially blocks the lovely view to the water and it was unoccupied during our stay, so it wasn't an issue, but have to wonder why that property owner had to build right there! We would not hesitate to make a return visit in the future.
