About Gary and Kathy Burmesch

Being the owners of this cottage has allowed us to share a really special property with others, while helping with the costs associated with a vacation property. My wife and I clean and maintain the cottage ourselves and are there to meet our guests when they arrive. We take great pride in providing our guests with a clean and comfortable cottage for their stay.

We had a great time for our week. Good place to park our boat, the place was spotless and had everything and more to make our stay perfect. Kathy and Gary were the perfect hosts in telling us what to expect on the waters.

Very Relaxing and Clean

  • 4 of 5

Gary and Kathy were perfect hosts. They met us at the cabin upon arrival and explained everything. The cabin had all the comforts of home and was exactly as described in their information. Very friendly neighbors, restaurant three doors down, and ample of private parking. Large lake with good fishing right off their pier in which you can have your own boat. Would stay their again our return to Castle Lake. Restaurant can be busy on weekends, but weren't bothered by any noise, even at night. Most you heard was a possible boat leaving the area.
