This Is The One

  • 5 of 5

July of 2017 was our second stay in this cottage and it was every bit as memorable as the first. The cottage is clean, updated, and well appointed with new cottage furnishing and updated bathrooms. The kitchen is well equipped and cookware is like new. The views from the porch, deck, and dock are phenomenal. The paddle boards, in additional to the two kayaks that can be used at will, were a fun upgrade. We're already making plans to return next year.

Perfect Walloon Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

Our experience could not have been better. The location of this darling cottage is ideal. There are stunning lake views from every room. Our two teenage boys loved the large dock, with kayaks, paddle boards, and even an optional boat rental. The porch was so peaceful in the morning having coffee, in the rocking chairs, to the evenings enjoying the sunset. The house has a new kitchen, with good size bedrooms, with their own lovely baths. It was qaintly decorated, not cluttered, but has everything you could possibly need. We inquired about buying the cottage from the owners, if that tells you how much we liked it!!!!

Cottage Comfort

  • 5 of 5

We were extremely happy with this Walloon gem! We had a family join us here and there and had plenty of space to enjoy each others company! It was so clean and well kept up! My sons especially loved to swim, fish, kayak and paddle board all right there off the dock. Sunsets were amazing to gaze upon until late evening. George is a wonderful man to work with. I'm hoping he will put in a fire pit next year! Hint, hint, lol! My family was so thankful to have gotten to stay at this comfy cottage!!!!

Exceeds expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely 3 bedroom cottage and were overjoyed with the accommodations. The cottage was the perfect size for our family of four. Just enough space to be together for meals and family chats along with privacy when desired. We loved the porch overlooking the waters of Walloon with our morning coffee and wine in the evenings to watch the sunset. Our college aged daughters enjoyed the kayaks and paddle boards provided by the owners. We had fun catching fish right off the dock. We love the peaceful setting of Walloon and hope to rent this cottage again.

Beautiful lakeside cottage with breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently stayed at this beautiful cottage on Walloon Lake in September 2015. The cottage was so lovely and clean with a beachy feel to it and the furnishings were very comfortable. The three bedrooms were luxurious and cozy with gorgeous lake views and the updated private bathrooms with the double sinks and bathtubs were perfect for the six of us!

The outdoor space was just as beautiful as the inside with a lovely porch and cozy adirondack chairs and a picnic table overlooking the lake where we enjoyed a few dinners while gazing at the beautiful sunsets. The owner, George, was friendly and accommodating and great to work with. We will definitely rent from him again as soon as we can!

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

House was perfect and had everything we needed for a wonderful week on Waloon Lake. The cottage was beautifully designed for 1 or 2 families to live comfortably with private bathrooms and great views of the lake. We loved staying there and look forward to more visits.
