Peaceful, rustic cabin on the lake

  • 5 of 5

Nice getaway cabin for four people or less. Clean firm beds, functional and well stocked kitchen, comfortable living room, nice fireplace. Only problem we had was a slow drain in the bathroom sink. Not many satellite TV options (no ESPN) but watching TV was not a priority (no TV in master bedroom, but one in guest bedroom and bunk room).

Be sure to bring consumable things like bath soap, sugar, extra toilet paper. etc. as those things are not provided and will only be there if left behind by others. Cabin is very close to the water so chilling out on the deck, enjoying the view and grilling burgers were our main activities. Nice dock in deep water so bring your boat if you have one....ramp is less than a mile away. Neighbors on both sides are really close so if they're around you will know it. Would be perfect during the middle of the week but we still had a great time.

Just as advertised. Nice and quiet. Lovely cabin.

  • 4 of 5

We were only at the cabin for a short time but it was wonderful. The view is so relaxing. It's great to be so close to the water - just a few steps to the dock which I took advantage of to fish.

Someone with kids will love the bunk room!

Also, the owners are very attentive . That's a nice plus.

Perfect lake cabin feel! Nice lot, great view, easy walk. GREAT yard for pets!

  • 4 of 5

The good:

Overall we really like Contentment Cabin. What a neat little gem with absolutely PERFECT décor for that old time 'lake cabin' feel and ambience. Feels like a cabin, or fishing lodge rather than a fancy home on the golf course. Really liked the extra large Sub Zero fridge (albeit no working ice maker). Couple pie pans, pour water in, and that sucker made all the ice we could use. ;-)

HVAC system worked great. Having a real wood burning fireplace is also a plus, and would be nice in the colder weather. :-)

The cabin is plenty large enough for a small to medium family, and a perfect getaway for a couple. Plus having a covered slip dock is a huge plus when bringing your boat. (We brought our bass boat.)

Great for pets!

The bad:

If you like hard beds, you'll love these! Bad back or not, they're VERY firm for sure, even my wife had problems with the bed. Have never stayed on beds so hard. Could use a lighting upgrade, and a few things 'freshened' up as they are a bit tired.

We had booked well in advance, then hurricane Irma came. Given the option we certainly would have cancelled. Not refunded, just needed to reschedule and couldn't. Arrived on Saturday afternoon, and by Sunday afternoon it was REALLY dangerous, and it stayed like that all day Monday till Tuesday morning. Trees were falling all around us, the dock next door blew away and we were trapped, unable to get out.

Be prepared, cell service inside the cabin doesn't exist. Have to walk outside to find 1~2 bars at best which the storm made even worse.

When the second bunch of trees fell, then the neighbors dock took off I was able to reach Kim through the app to call the cabin and she replied VERY promptly! Within the hour 2 guys showed up to tie it as best they could to the shore. Kim did offer for us to leave at that point, but our boat was at the dock, unable to get it out of the lake, and all the roads were blocked!

Thankfully there was a leaf blower I used to clear the decks, drive, and walkway from all the storm debris. Some huge limbs were down as well. Not something I'd want to 'enjoy' again.

Hopefully we don't see storms as bad as Harvey & Irma again for a long time. Sadly Maria is heading towards the US as I write this. :-(

Few other housekeeping issues with creepy crawlies that made my wife scream a LOT!

Kim is aware of it now, and said she had it addressed after we left.

Overall we would stay again, just perhaps sleep on the sofa, benches or air mattress. ;-)

Owner's Response: We are very sorry Irma joined your vacation. We didn't know you wanted to reschedule until reading it on here. We read back over all of your communication with us. Nothing there saying you would like to reschedule or even cancel. We live in Florida and our town was hit hard by the hurricane. We would have understood and rescheduled for you. On the check in info sent in advance, it explains the cell phone service is spotty in the cabin. The landline is there for your convenience. Included in the info it tells about the ice maker not working. We suggest where bagged ice may be purchased.

Great getaway!

We really enjoyed the cabin! It had everything we needed and was very comfortable! The dryer was not working but we knew that ahead of time and planned for it. The location on the lake is excellent!

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I just wanted to say this was one of the best properties I have ever stayed at. The cabin was perfectly sized for our needs and nestled in the trees. The view from the deck of the lake was so amazing, my wife and I sat in the swing chair for hours in the mornings just taking in the view and enjoying the serenity and peace. The kids enjoyed their time also playing cards and watching a bit of TV when they weren't swimming in the lake. We befriended the neighbor who lent us their jet ski for an hour and made the trip memorable. To top it off, we had the most amazing view of the total eclipse that passed right over our area with no cloud cover. The best vacation we have ever had! We'll definitely be back to enjoy the cabin in other seasons!
