Fun place!!!

  • 5 of 5

My familt stayed at this listing in July/August 2013. The description of the house is very accurate. Owner is very helpful with any request. We traveled with 6 adults, 3 teenage boys, 2 children, and 2 dogs and there was PLENTY of room to be comfortable. The kids had a great time on this small, but very sporty lake (as well as our German Shepherd). Neighbors were friendy. There are places to shop/eat within a very short distance from the house. I would recommend this rental in a heartbeat!!!

Great Week

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was clean, comfortable and the weather was good. We need 4 bedrooms and they were all large enough for all our family. And of course the price was right.

Met our expectations

  • 4 of 5

Cathy is a fantastic communicator and was very attentive to our questions when booking and when we arrived and also while on site. Everything was set for us when we arrived. There are a lot of rules posted, most of which we could ignore because we paid for cleaning. The TV instructions need to be posted, along with a list of channels and which of the 4 remote controllers to use. Location is ideal for Notre Game games. Bed count in the listing is confusing. There are five beds total in four rooms. This includes the bunk bed that counts as 2 beds, so if everyone wants their own bed, it sleeps 5. The sofa arrangement is huge and seats at least 10 people in a large great room with big TV. Washer and dryer a great plus. Two bathrooms were fine. Plenty of towels and linens. Several could sleep on the sofas if needed. I would not hesitate to rent again.

Fantastic place to enjoy gathering place for large family and two little dogs

  • 4 of 5

Thank you to Cathy for allowing a large amount of people to stay at your home on the small lake. We rented for two nights and days as we had a family wedding to attend to on the second day. That is when many family came to spend the night. It was great for the little kids to get time to play in the water and for others to take a trip out in the four kayaks we brought. We sat up and had a small fire both nights which we all grew up doing. Perfect place to just relax and enjoy family as well as being able to have our two small dogs with us. Only downfall was it was not the cleanest home. We left the place probably cleaner than when we arrived and if you do not like dirty things behind couches or furniture, it may not be a place for you. We enjoyed ourselves and Cathy's place was perfect for us. Again, thank you for sharing your home on the lake. Julie Martz 9/15/2017

Owner's Response: Oh, dear, sorry if you found anything behind the furniture. We do try to keep it clean, and we are planning on replacing the floors this winter, so that will help, and we will find anything someone has left behind. I will admit I don't always look behind the furniture, as many times we don't have a lot of time during a switch out. We do try to have some really nice extras for people to enjoy.

Great time at the lake!

  • 5 of 5

Cathy's cottage was a great find on beautiful lake. Beds enough for our family of 8 adults and 3 children, a sand beach, a beautiful lake - it was fun and relaxing. Cathy is very helpful and checked in to see that the vacation was going smoothly.

Great beachfront on a quiet lake!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated my dads 70th birthday here and had a blast. Dad & the boys fished the entire time, the kids swam and played in the sand and the rest of us lounged, kayaked (brought our own) and enjoyed the fire pit. The dogs had a lot of fun too! The cottage is just that, a cottage - reminiscent of the one we had when we were kids. Thanks for your hospitality and ensuring we had what we needed, Cathy!
