Hike to the lake
The house has every thing you need but it is quite a hike to get to the lake
July 20-27 2019
Loved everything about this cottage except the trek to the dock.
Great space, view, deck with hot tub, good kitchen and grill.
We had a great time!
Deer’s Leap cottage is an amazing oasis to reconnect with family.
The cottage boasted beautiful, scenic views. We watched a fox family one evening and could hear them yipping at each other. It was dog friendly which accommodated us with our fur babies. The kitchen was well equipped for all our needs. We spent a lot of time in the hot tub where we viewed stars and full moon. The stairs to the water was quite a workout so plan on bringing everything you need because you won’t want to make multiple trips. We had fun kayaking and canoeing. You are able to catch puke and pickerel right from the dock. I would recommend water shoes if swimming. We rented a pontoon boat and went tubing for the day. If you’re looking for a place to split with 2 families if has 2 kitchens. The owners answered all our questions and responded to them quickly.
Thanks very much for taking the time to write such a great review. We're glad you had such a great time and really enjoyed the cottage, the views and hot tub, and had fun fishing from the dock, canoeing and swimming. You even got to watch a fox family. We enjoyed communicating with you and certainly hope you'll come back again sometime.
I really don’t want to give this a great review because I want to keep it a secret. Lol. We had the best weekend here. Les was great. Told us everything we needed to know. If I could find one fault it would be the pictures as they don’t do this property justice. Waking up having breakfast looking at a million dollar view was unreal. The walk down to the lake was fine. Me and my wife were up and down at least twice a day with out any problems. The dock it’s self was stunning. So peaceful. I’ll be booking to come back right away. Awesome escape. Thanks les.
Thanks for taking the time to wrote such a great review, we appreciate it. We're glad you and your wife had a great time and enjoyed the cottage's view the surroundings and the lake . We certainly do hope that you will come back again.

We used the property as home base for our golf holiday.
Thanks for choosing our cottage and for taking the time to leave your great review. We’re glad you enjoyed it.
Very nice property, but with steep inclines on both sides
We (a group of three ladies) stayed in this property in September 2018 for 5 nights. It was a very nice experience with many great amenities.
The Pros: The house was very clean, furnished sparsely, but comfortably. The kitchen was fully stocked with utensils and plates, the fridge with ice, a few essential spices and other commodities (e.g. coffee filters, toilet paper and paper towels). The hot tub was a huge bonus and it was a bit rainy for a few days, so a nice drink in the hot tub meant that we could sit outside. The dock was also very nice and had a canoe and some kayaks, which were great. Life jackets were also available. The lake was still warm and very pleasant. There was a nice black dog called Cisco that visited us daily and made himself quite at home, though I believe his owners lived next door. Les, the owner, was very supportive. He helped answer my questions, and tried to deal with some of the challenges we faced when a storm knocked out the power to Huntsville and the surrounding area, and destroyed the internet.
Cons: This house is on a really steep hill, and while I knew this from other reviews, I was not entirely prepared for the level of steepness, both to get up to the house and to get down to the docks. It would not be suitable for anything less than a 4 wheel drive vehicle, and, if you went down to the docks and forgot something, you'd be cursing yourself for 450 steps on the way back up.
We would stay here again. For the price and what it offered it was very appropriate for our needs. It was an enjoyable few days and offered us the chance to get away from it all and relax - yet it was close enough to Huntsville that we could shop and get groceries with relative ease.
