Nice Property, Nice Owners!
Nice Property, Nice Owners!
We had a great time! The property was clean and modern and well kept up. The owners were very kind and eager to help with information and assist with anything we needed. The family enjoyed it so much, we will be booking again next year! Highly Recommended.

We just returned from spending two weeks at Bishops Retreat. We had a great time. The cottage has everything you can think of that you need. The view is awesome. We brought a boat and it was so convenient to launch it at the Marina located on the same road as the cottage. We had such a great time that we are planning to stay another two weeks next year. We recommend this cottage to anyone who is wanting to enjoy a vacation at the lakes. Rhonda& Dan
