  • Beautiful weekend with family

    "This home was very nice but still comfortable and cozy. The waterfront view was awesome from the amazing deck where we visited with coffee in the mornings around the cozy chiminea and roasted marshmallows at night around the fire pit in the lawn. The teenagers kayaked and fished and there was plenty of shoreline to anchor our bass boat. Ample places to sleep and beds were super comfy! The owners have stocked it well with plenty of linens and towels and also have left a touch of their personal life there with pictures of their travels . . . felt like home. The owners are very easy to do business with and were very accessible. Great time and we will be back!"

  • Such a great cabin and view!

    "My husband and I rented this cabin for the weekend while fishing a bass tournament. It is a super cute, very clean cabin. It's small, but just perfect for us and our baby (aka, our yellow lab) I wish we'd had time to enjoy the waterside deck or the fire pits area, but we hope to come back soon to do so."
