Just got back from a wonderfully relaxing week at your lake house. The house itself was immaculate and had everything we could ask for. The internet worked great and the flat screen tv with DVR was an added bonus. The kitchen was completely stocked with anything we needed and the gas grill worked great. But my favorite part is the outside. The private beach was big and it had 4 lounges, 2 chairs, and a large beach umbrella which really came in handy on hot days. If you like to swim - this is the perfect place. The lake is clear and warm, with a nice sandy bottom when you first get in. We also used the kayaks to explore the rest of the lake. The fire pit was nice and the crates of wood for sale right at the house made it so easy. I know I'm missing things but it's impossible to list all the cool amenities this house has. We found a real gem and we'll definitely be back next year. Thank you!!

Dear Victoria & John,

Thank you very much for the warm welcome and the candy.

We really enjoyed your beautiful lake.  We kayaked the whole lake (and one section twice) and never saw another person or boat on the water.  We had the whole lake to ourselves.  We did see people on their decks, but none swimming.  Any neighbors we saw were very friendly.

We looked at your "before" photograph album, and were very impressed with your final results.  We love the wood floors especially.  But the view out the windows, onto the lake, were amazing.  We felt so fortunate to be able to experience the view for several days.

We played games that we never had time for at home- backgammon, trouble, and the cards.

We took walks around the neighborhood and enjoyed ferns, hostas and columbine and more, that won't grow in our hot climate,  What grows naturally along your roadways- we have to work hard to imitate!

It was a very peacful & fun vacation experience- and we thank you!

Hi Victoria and John,

This was the most relaxing anniversary yet.  Celebrating 24 years here was perfect.  I suspect we will be back.  We love how peaceful it is in this area.  We especially love the purple martins with all their chirps and clicks, it made our morning coffee entertaining as well as watching all the fish jumping.

We also want to thank you for the unexpected boat ride.  You are so welcoming and friendly.

Your lake home is very well equipped.  My only complaint is I didn't bring food for lunch on Saturday and we had to go out and leave the lakefront.  Love the beach, firepit and kayaks.  

Wishing you lifes best and I am sure we will come again!

Dear Victoria & John,

Thank ypu so much for sharing this wonderful cottage with us.  We really enjoyed getting away from NYC for the weekend for a quiet and peaceful time.  We really had everything we needed here.  The kayaks were a fun addition.  Hopefully we will be back in the warmer weather months so that we can enjoy swimming in the lake.

Thanks again for everything!

MY wife and I had unforgettable stay at oxoboxo lake cottage, We spent three week for our honeymoon at this cozy, immaculate and clean place. We were thrilled to find such quite, gorgeous home for honeymoon! When we drove up the drive way we were in awe to see how beautiful the view was. we loved the home from the moment we arrived and it was very hard for us to leave. Every morning was a gift to look out the large windows and see the lake right in front of you. Victoria was helpful and kind in answering whatever requests we rose starting from booking till we left the vacation rental. The owners are friendly without being intrusive and are also flexible with scheduling, interested in making the best stay for their guests that they can manage given their own interesting lives. The cottage faces the oxoboxo lake and gave the house a beautiful view .The clear and calm environment of oxoboxo lake cottage made our stay enjoyable. It is hard to imagine a more ideal location for a home and a finer house to live in. This place is meant for getting away, fed by constant sea breezes and the sounds and presence of many species of birds. It could not have been a better vacation. The house has a completely equipped kitchen, beautiful bedrooms and breathtaking views. Also it was immaculate. The house and property are absolutely beautiful. The house have a barbcue, you can fish, hayak and and boat drive. The inside of the home was immaculate and more than what is pictured. Being able to enjoy the soothing water and gaze at the harbor and stars was a quite a wonderland experience. It was an impressive vacation. We also enjoyed the sandy beach I highly recommend this house, you won’t be disappointed! We are hoping to come back soon.Thank you so much for allowing us to rent your home! Review on VRBO

Our two week stay was everything we had hoped, and more. The cottage was clean, cheerful and well equipped. We appreciated that WiFi, Cable and free long distance telephone service was included. The lake is beautiful, and we think it would be wonderful to return in the warm weather to take advantage of the private sandy beach, swim in the lake, and to be able to enjoy the paddle boat and/or kayak. The owner welcomed us with fresh flowers and chocolates, and provided helpful information about the area - grocery stores, other shopping, restaurants, sightseeing, etc. We would definitely recommend this rental cottage to others.

Beautiful location, even under snow! Reviewed by: Sarah N from Toulouse, France Reviewed on: 04/28/2013 for their stay in 03/2013 350414 - Relax on the Private Sandy Beach! The cottage was very clean and the kitchen was the best-equipped of any that we stayed in on our 3 month long tour. The friendly owner was there to greet us an show us around, but otherwise left us in peace. We had a few email exchanges with her during our stay about the expected severe weather, so she was accessible had we needed to contact her about anything else. There was a big snowstorm while we were there, but the cottage was very cosy and the view out the window over the lake was stunning. No need to go out if you can just sit on the comfy daybed in front of the window and admire the view! The only drawback for us was that there were no reading lights in the tiny bedroom for reading in bed. One had to use the overly bright overhead light which was not ideal (especially if one person want to read and the other to sleep!) All in all, this was a very comfortable rental and we had a lovely stay. FlipKey

12/7/2012 My grandson and I spent a wonderful winter week in the cottage. The value is unparalleled for this warm, cozy, clean cottage with an absolutely spectacular view. Even in the bad weather we felt connected with nature and "on vacation". The owner is a sweet and friendly person who was responsive to my every request. The neighbors are very close to the cottage, detracting from the otherwise remote and private feeling of this very accessible little vacation spot. I would still recommend it to anyone - any season. It's a bit small, but a great value for 1 to maybe 3 people maximum.
