Most offer wood stoves and automatic heat. Wood is supplied.
We also offer a remote cottage setting on Upper Wilson Pond. This cottage sits on a point of land, on the east shore, offering total privacy. Because it is in a remote area, it is supplied with gas lights, gas refrigerator and cook-top stove. It truly is "a little piece of heaven!"
