Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: My husband Michael and myself purchased the property when it had a little rustic cottage on it that we used for a couple of years as a family. We decided to remodel it and start sharing it with other families wanting to visit "up north". We have enjoy meeting families since 2008 and each year since, watching families experience togetherness...this has been our goal; bringing families together for memories that will last a lifetime.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
I feel the best part of Bass Lake is the size. It's large enough to enjoy many water activities yet small enough to not have all the loud noise of the larger lakes. You can experience quiet surroundings, amazing stars and the beauty of nature that's all around you. You can use all 5 senses to the fullest...sight, sound, touch, smell and taste. Something that is hard to find unless you're relaxed with family in a peaceful place you can call yours for the week...Hidden Gem Cottage, Relax and leave your busy life at home.
