Wonderful getaway at the Lake.

  • 5 of 5

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.

We had a wonderful time during our stay at the house. We were looking for a relaxing time and found exactly what we were looking for. The area is pretty secluded so if you're looking for privacy, you'll find it.

There was a family of deer that would come around the lake in the mornings. The screened in porch is a great feature and was a great spot to enjoy the views of the lake.

The owners were very accommodating regarding any questions we had. I would visit again....

Beautiful Spot Right on the Lake!

We had a lovely time here! The house is on a beautiful, secluded spot that goes right down to the lake with its own dock. Ideal for boat renters. Highly recommended!

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

  • 4 of 5

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!

Clean house and better than we anticipated

  • 5 of 5

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.
