"My family and I had a wonderful time. The cabin was perfect for us. It was very clean and very well equipped. The cabin is close to local store and to downtown. The river is just across the street with a private beach access. The owner was very nice and helpful! Would love to stay here again."

"This spacious little home provided the perfect getaway for us. Satisfied our needs for privacy, quiet, recreation (we took a great bike ride), and good food. One feels in the country but close to town and entertainment. We will definitely be back!"

"My husband & I booked the Lotus Lake House for an intimate, private, secluded weekend retreat. We found the directions very easy to follow and we’re very happy to see the house as pictured from the website. We were looking forward to the glass walls to enjoy the rain & evening sky, the privacy from other people and a place beautiful to want to stay in all weekend. Although it is secluded, it was not as private as we anticipated. We noticed people camping about 150 feet up from the house and you can also see another “house” from the side of the Lake House. We didn’t feel it was an issue with the “house” as we could not see any noticeable windows. As for the campers, we did feel as if we were in a fishbowl since the front of the house is glass walls and a clear view to the campers. We kept wondering if they were watching us (slightly creepy). I am unsure if they are allowed to camp or not, but it did give us an uneasy feeling since we had not read anything about campers in the guest book. We also did not contact the owner since we were there for just the weekend and felt it probably wouldn’t make much of a difference. Although it was creepy, we went on with our rainy weekend. We took advantage of watching some movies the owner had, but we would suggest bringing your own, as it is slightly limited. We realize the owner does not carry an extensive collection due to all the nature, but we were rained in, wanted to cuddle up, enjoy the rain, and watch a movie with some popcorn. We really enjoyed our intimate weekend. We found the Lotus Lake House had everything we needed.
A few recommendations:
1. Read the guest book first. Many questions can be answered in it.
2. Bring an IPod adapter for IPhone to use for music (for the owner I would suggest having one at the house).
3. If you are allergic to dogs, the Lake House is probably not for you. It is a dog friendly property- inside & out. Immediately after opening the front door you can smell a strong odor of dog (smelled a mix between wet/ unwashed dogs). (For the owner we would recommend an air fresher to reduce the odor).
4. The bed is firm- we had read this in prior reviews, but felt that firm could mean something different to each person. For us, it was too firm, so be prepared if you enjoy pillow tops mattresses.
5. The frig is on the smaller side, so plan accordingly.
We would recommend this house to anyone looking for a couple’s retreat .We would not recommend a group, as the house is l"

"We enjoyed this cozy and beautiful home! It was charming with its decor and had comfortable couches, swivel chairs and a sunlit window nook to snuggle with the kids and a warm blanket! We slept great every night in the beds and enjoyed our time cooking meals together in the kitchen! The views out the huge windows were unique to the experience. We especially liked soaking in the hot tub on the back porch. This home can be enjoyed by all!"
