                                                              The place was clean and the owners were great to work with!

                                                              This place was a great little place to get away for a short getaway. It's located in a quiet cove. The dock was great for fishing. The place is a little dated, but it was clean and everything was in working order.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Thank you for choosing to stay with us on SML.

                                                              Glad everything was clean and in working order, however, I had not seen our place in a year and it needs some immediate attention.

                                                              House is being remodeled, as we speak, should be like New for summer 2018!!

                                                              Hope to have you back in the near future!

                                                              Wonderful getaway at the Lake.

                                                              My family of 4 and another father and his daughter had a wonderful retreat at the Lake.

                                                              We especially enjoyed sunsets on the dock. Very relaxing! And after pulling the kids on a raft all day one day---boy did they sleep well! The cottage had everything we needed and we especially enjoyed the screened in porch.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              So glad you enjoyed your stay on SML.

                                                              We look forward to having you all back in the future! SML is such a great relaxing vacation for sure !!

                                                              Clean house and better than we anticipated

                                                              Brian G.

                                                              Alice was great with communication. Very friendly. Our Kids had a blast swimming in the lake. Wish we stayed longer and had enough time to rent a boat and go explore more. Very much suggest to.

                                                              Hot summer fun

                                                              This was a great home base for a multi-family vacation this year. We spent a lot of time in and on the water, enjoyed walking the neighborhood, and peaceful country sounds.

                                                              Very comfortable and pleasant

                                                              My family had a great time.The location and the house was very conducive to having a great time. We have great memories of the time we spend there. Among many good features the house has the one that stands out is the screened porch,we took most of meals there, a super place for family to geather.Would do it again.

                                                              Wonderful Getaway!


                                                              This was our 3rd stay at Alice's cottage on the lake. The last time we were there our son was 3 and now 7. We all thoroughly enjoyed relaxing, floating and swimming in the lake. Having the dock there is essential - you can sit outside and catch some sun or go under the covered part for a break. Our weather in July was perfect. We also took the canoe out several times. The views in the morning from the deck are just beautiful - you can see the sun coming through the trees. Very relaxing. We also enjoyed going to the Marina one evening and enjoyed the food and local musicians. Alice remains very easy to work with -- thank you again, Alice!
