We stayed with some friends at Lonesome Cove this fall.
The cabins are quaint & right on the water with an absolutely gorgeous view. It was nice and quiet and would have also made for a great romantic getaway.
There were six of us and we had 2 cabins, one 1BR and one 2BR. On the 2BR deck there was a gazebo with a large table & chairs and another uncovered picnic table . The kitchen had everything we needed to make great meals. We all gathered there to eat outside one evening under the gazebo. It was a bit chilly but perfect for a small dinner party.
Our cabins both had wood burning fireplaces and the firewood was provided.
The caretakers were very helpful with recommendations on restaurants, groceries, hikes and other things to do like whale watching. While they were not hovering over us, they were around whenever we wanted something or had a question. We had many! They lent us a pair of binoculars so we could see the animals on Spieden Island across the water. They also encouraged us to visit their library, which is a small building with books, games, and other fun things that you can borrow.
All in all, we loved our stay. On top of everything else, the cost was much less than anywhere else we looked into. Especially any accommodation on the water with such an incredible view. The sunsets were amazing. I know this trip will be the first of many. What a find! We can’t wait to go back.
