“Manage your expectationa and Expect Good Value”

Background:
=========
We rented Robin's Nest for a short family get-away, with the expectation that it would be a Lake side retreat. My wife had visions of "chilling" in an Adirondack chair and reading a book next to a lake with a cool breeze. Well that never happened, because the house is not right on the lake, it's one block in, but overall we had a great time as a family. Just need to manage your exceptions relative to the views posted.

What to expect:
============
The beds were very comfortable, we only used four, so I can't speak to the pull-outs. Good amenities, like a new range, and television, the pool table was the most appreciated by our family. There was no microwave but you won't miss it. The internet access is DSL and probably adequate for most, we had a teen who hogged most of the bandwidth and it was a little slow the first day but there is at least decent access via WiFi. If you are like us coming from a FiOS setup you will need to cope but it's manageable. We made full use of the outdoor grill, and the board games.

Overall condition:
==============
Over all it is very clean and well maintained. The outside, at the time we were there, was being worked on and gave no indication of the great interior, so at first there was some trepidation on arrival. Those fears were laid to rest once we opened the front door.

Area:
=====
We did do some fishing nearby but without a boat you will be challenged to get any decent fishing in. The area overall is family friendly and is not geared towards tourist, it seems more like a retreat for locals, we prefer less tourist so if you want non-stop action, this is not it. Do your homework and plan your excursions ahead of time, the Robin's Nest is a great base to venture out from, and I'm sure if the nearby amusement area on the lake was open for business, it was probably twice the price to rent. If you do stay there during the summer be sure to go to Udderly Delicious for ice cream, that's a great local treat in nearby Johnstown.
