Beautiful property on a very quiet, clean lake

  • 5 of 5

We were more than impressed at the beautifully maintained property. The cottage is not only adorable on the outside but it is completely remodeled and gorgeous on the inside. There was enough room for 5 adults to vacation comfortably and have plenty of room to hang out. We enjoyed the peace and quiet every night and the long walks along the lake shore. The lake was lovely to swim in and we appreciated that it was quiet time on the lake after 4:00. A perfect vacation!!

Beautiful, clean and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

The view is amazing. To wake up in the morning and look at the lake was relaxing and peaceful. We enjoyed the large yard to relax in; along with swimming, boating, kayaking, grilling out and nightly bonfires. The cabin is definitely well cared for. All you need to bring with is your personal belongings and food. It was one of my best vacations ever. Definitely would recommend this place to anyone looking to get away and relax.

Beautiful, quiet summer getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I live in Chicago and were looking to get away for a weekend. We normally do this once a year, as we both grew up in rural Michigan and need nature back in our lives at least once a year. Over the past 5 years, we've rented cabins and cottages all over Michigan, Wisconsin and Indiana and this place by far was the best we've ever rented- and you couldn't ask for more at this price. All amenities were taken care of. They've really thought everything. The cabin was clean and lovely, but we spent most of our time on the water or in the yard. The hosts provided firewood and charcoal as well as some small boats. They also have little things like matches, bug spray, toilet paper and other things you might forget. All you need is your suitcase and some food. The rest was easy. I recommend this place to anyone looking to relax and who loves waking up to adorable chipmunks in the yard and loons on the water. We will definitely be back!

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a few days at the cottage at Gilas Lake and had a wonderful experience. The cabin is clean and the lake is clear and beautiful. It was fun to watch the Loons on the lake and it was very peaceful. Would definitely go back.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice time here. Really a sweet place. It's very private, the view of the lake is great, and you have a your own private dock, and a few boats to chose from! They even provide you with lifejackets. The lake itself is nice sized and pretty quiet. The cottage itself is in great condition, and decorated very tastefully, with movies to watch games to play, and a few books to read. A/C worked great when it was hot outside. We had a great time there and hope to return in the future. Highly recommended.
