August 2008: I wanted to write and let you know what a great time we had. First of all, the lake is truly amazing and we swam every day and did some row boating as well….. We collected a bunch of beautiful rocks that I’m sure we’ll use on a craft project soon. The cabin is so charming…you can just feel the history. We found it quite comfortable and accommodating. I think everything you could possibly need with so many nice touches. We just had a great time getting a bunch of R&R and enjoying the sunrises, the long days and the starlit nights. Thanks for everything. It was one of our favorite vacations.
July 2008: We again enjoyed our week at ROMYR. The weather cooperated beautifully. When it rained, it was either at night or in the morning, but it always cleared up at least part of the day so we could enjoy the water.
July 2008: Just wanted to say thanks, we had another wonderful time at ROMYR and I hope we can do it again next year. We sure love that place, every morning we would go out on the patio and have a coffee and my husband would say "another day in paradise".
Mid-June 2008: I just wanted to say thank you for renting us the cottage. We had a great time. We will more than likely be back next year but probably a little later in the summer… It was a little chilling for the first part of the trip. The accommodations were perfect!!
Pat, some feedback for house first, loved the house and location, it is really a great spot. ... The kids really loved the place, so rustic. It is kinda like camping, but with some upgrades, like kitchen and bath. I think they will always remember it. And that is cool. I hope you had good feedback from caretaker on how we left it. Tried to be a neat as possible. AP 7/06
Just wanted to let you know we had a FABULOUS time. The place is perfectly charming and I love the seclusion from neighbors. It's really on quite a large lot with plenty of privacy. We definitely want to come back next year. KV 9/02
We are thinking of returning next year because we had such a wonderful time. We will be in touch.
I really didn't get a chance to fully elaborate on what a wonderful week we had. The cabin was wonderful. Our two older children loved having the loft to themselves. Our younger son and Leon and I stayed in the downstairs bedrooms. I read 3 of your books during the week - it's great not having a TV : )
We also really enjoyed playing the games you had stored in the trunk and in the bin outside. Our two year old son loved the big blocks. He played with them all week. Since the weather was beautiful all week we were able to enjoy boating, campfires and family games.
Hi, Evan -
We mistakenly brought back a beach chair that is not ours. Is there an address where we can ship it to? Perhaps to your caretaker??
P.S. We had a lovely time last week.
Just got back from ROMYR late yesterday and we are pleased to report we had a great time. Weather ranged from windy and high in the 50s to sunny and 80. We made the best of it and everyone enjoyed beautiful Torch Lake.....and the fireworks on the 4th!
Dear Spencer and Evan:
We wanted to let you know what a great time we had at ROMYR last week. The cottage had lots of character and we enjoyed its "rustic-ness." The beach was a real plus. We spent countless hours there with our son skipping stones, finding shells, wading, building sand castles, sitting around a bonfire, and having a really relaxing time. The water, of course, was gorgeous, and we had really good weather.
Thanks again! We think we'd like to come back again next year.
Can't tell you how much we enjoyed the cottage, what great setting, so peaceful and calm. We would like to rent again next summer 2001. We would rent one week and then my sister would rent the next. Please let us know.
Thanks again for getting us in early.
Evan, Thanks for the great directions. Had a perfect week. Great rides around Torch and to Elk Rapids. Kids loved the beach and all the toys. Saw some neat ducks and birds. Found an old photo and attached Christmas card, I assume of Robert. We placed it on the mantle. Kids thought the loft was just like the one on "Little House on the Prairie".
Just wanted to let you know that we really enjoyed ROMYR 7/4-7/11! The weather was good and the lake was perfect.
I was wondering if we had neglected to do something at the cottage? I have not received the deposit back as of yet.
Thanks again for a wonderful week, we hope to be able to do it again.
(We wait to hear from our caretaker before refunding the cleaning deposit, which we did.)
We just returned yesterday from an absolutely wonderful week at ROMYR. The weather was in the high 70's to low 80's all week long. Only one afternoon of off and on rain. We couldn't have asked for anything nicer!
Looking forward to hearing from you and thank you for everything.
p.s. I had an absolutely great time.
