perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

What an adorable little cabin, totally away from it all! We had a fabulous weekend with our son, celebrating one of our last adventures as a family of 3 before his little brother joins us. The cabin was clean, well decorated and pretty much just perfect. It did take us a while to figure out that the VCR has to be on in order for the DVD player to work. :) We will definitely be back!

Husband birthday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the weekend for my husband birthday, the cabin is very clean and the owner has put a lot of cute decorations through out the cabin. My husband said it was the best birthday he's had, the fishing is great he got 8 fish which he released. If you want a great experience stay here you will not be disappointed.

34th Wedding Anniversary Celebration

  • 5 of 5

In celebrating this quiet milestone for us, we found the PERFECT (and I do mean PERFECT) place to be alone and together to reflect what we mean to each other. The other owner was not at home so we truly were alone in our 5-day celebration. It was extra special to be able to go on a canoe ride on the beautiful lake as we were able to take similar canoe ride on our honeymoon 34 years ago at Harrison Hot Springs. I have to admit I was somewhat skeptical in renting this cabin several months ago after reading a very disturbing negative review from a previous renter who reported a negative response/being asked to leave early by the owner. Well, my message to that renter: when you bring other underage people you failed to let the owner know about then let them drink alcohol and disturb the neighbor enough to be approached about this negative behavior - you deserve to be asked to leave early by the owner. To the owner: kudos to you for protecting your property to remain a quiet, cozy, respectful place for people to rent and enjoy the peace. Thank you for such a great place to spend a truly enjoyable vacation.

Can't Wait to Go Back!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent our 25th Anniversary at this lovely, comfortable, beautifully appointed cottage. We floated on the lake, boated on the lake, sat outside and absorbed the quiet. Inside was so comfortable with ceiling to floor knotty pine, foosball table, books, candles, fresh flowers and wine to greet us. Although we live in Colorado, we will be back for the feelings of serenity that come from being in this most amazing spot on the planet. Don't plan many adventures while you are here, because you will not want to leave the cottage. Ahhhhh is the best descriptive word!

An excellent and relaxing visit in a special cottage

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights at Sweet Huckleberry Cottage, and we loved it! It's in a quiet location on a private lake. The water was warm, and we went out in blow up rafts on a sunny evening. We also enjoyed going out in the rowboat during an afternoon rain. The owners put a lot into making this place comfortable, and there are many unique touches as you walk around inside and spot well placed figurines, books, and floral arrangements. It really has everything we needed to be content. We even played a game of foosball, which we haven't ever done together. We were surprised to see a nice bottle of wine and fresh cut flowers when we arrived, and the entire place was spotless. The owner was extremely helpful in suggesting places to eat, shop, and hike in the area. She obviously cares about making the experience as pleasurable and enjoyable as possible for the guests. We have already recommended Sweet Huckleberry Cottage to several friends and family members. We are talking about making another trip back for a long weekend stay in the near future.
