What makes this house unique

Wooded location. True log cabin feel with all the amenities. Safe swim area in wide part of no-wake cove that is close to entrance - no boat or skis going directly by.

Sitting on the porch (try the rocker) with the stillness and serenity of the lake views is the best way to renew and recharge.

Plenty of room for the whole family without feeling like you're in each others laps all the time.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Andrea,

On behalf of the group, I just wanted to say thank you for helping us bring in the new year in a beautiful house in a beautiful area! We had a great time! We made some delicious food, played some music, and enjoyed the fire pit and hot tub :-)

Thanks again! Hope to stay in your house again in the future :-)

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the second year that my husband and I have stayed here for our anniversary getaway, and we absolutely LOVE everything about it. The location of the house is perfect and the view from the deck is amazing. You can fish right from the dock, which my husband did almost the entire stay! We are so relaxed while we are there and have a fire going as soon as we arrive. There is also an outdoor grill which works great. The owner is also very helpful and answers whatever questions you have very quickly. There is a Food Lion right up the street and the shopping center also has a pizza place and a Chinese food restaurant. The only thing we regretted was waiting so long to book this year. By the time we booked, we were limited on days that were available. Cannot wait to go back.

College Park


  • 4 of 5

We completely enjoyed our stayed. Everthing was great. Weather was perfect. Lake view, charming house, outdoor fireplace, jaccuzi...

I gave 4 starts because of the dirty pots and pans. The kitchen was extreamly unorginized, outdated. Pots and pans were very dirty and old, we could not use..

Time away for a wonderful stay

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I, and our Boston Terrier, thoroughly enjoyed our 8 day stay this month of September in this beautifully secluded retreat. The accommodations met our needs, the scenery especially the lake was breathtaking, the owners Andrea and Roger were gracious and accommodating and we were able to bring our pet which was wonderful. Now if my husband caught more fish that would have made the trip even better! We will return next year. Thank you

Very Comfortable and Peaceful Cabin

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was great. It had beautiful views of the lake from the great room and plenty of outdoor space for barbecues. The property is nice because it is very private and quiet. The hot tub was clean and hot when we arrived. The inside was clean and had everything needed.

The dock and it's screened in patio were great as well. Very peaceful for fishing or a glass of wine as the sun sets on the lake. Pretty much the only thing I would recommend is clearing out some area by the dock for easier entrances and exits from the lake.

Owner's Response: Thank you. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed your "Retreat" from the workaday world. And thank you for the suggestion. We're planning on remodeling the cabin early next year and will be sure to spend some time on the outside as well including improving access to the dock and the water. I hope you'll come back and check it out once it's done. Be sure to Like Us (Lake Cabin Retreat) on Facebook so you can follow the remodel before and afters. Hope the rest of 2017 is happy and healthy - Andrea

Special Place!

  • 5 of 5

Only got to spend a couple nights here and would have easily spent hundreds more. This place is amazing. If you're on the fence do it! Andrea is great, super accommodating. The house has everything you could need, even for our 1 year old. We were already looking up dates to come back and bring the family. Hot tub was nice and hot, the lake was awesome, super close proximity to the grocery store, nice and quiet. We loved it. Thank you !!
