About David Blevins

The cottage is family owned property and we enjoy sharing it with others.

David Blevins purchased this cottage in 2011

Why David Blevins chose Harrison

We looked for five years until this perfect location appeared. A guest put it this way."It's a sliver of life on a lake". The views, water depth, dock and unpretentious home capped the sale.

What makes this cottage unique

Sitting with a good book on the balcony, listening to the young people play, having a camp fire, boating to dinner across the lake, taking friends tubing or just a pleasure boat ride and enjoy all the beauty. Meandering down the path way munching on thimble berries is a fun experience.

5-bar cellular coverage from all major carriers, WiFi, Fire pit, private dock, Grass to water's edge, Large deck, Bedroom balcony, Paddle boat Please be aware of the following "features" that may impact your decision to stay at our cottage: * There are approx. 100 steps on the trail from the parking area to the house. We recommend bringing or renting a boat for easier access and more FUN! * The house is on a lake-water system. We have the UV filter system tested periodically, but we can't guarantee it's effectiveness. Goose-poop happens, so bring bottled water for drinking if that worries you. * The bedrooms have open partition walls under a cathedral ceiling. Bring earplugs if anyone in your party snores. * The 2nd bathroom is in the detached outbuilding by the deck. Very convenient for showering after playing in the lake, but not so great for late-night visits.

Wonderful family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We spent an extended weekend at the Blevins home. We had a wonderful time there with family members coming in from Montana, Boise & Seattle. The home slept 9 comfortably, and the setting was idyllic. We enjoyed the yard, dock, water toys, and the dog swam non-stop. As stated, the only thing to be aware of is the stairs are quite long. Got winded carrying things up and down, so plan accordingly. Otherwise great place and would highly recommend.

We loved our stay at Cottage on the Shore. It had everything we could have needed in the cabin and the deck and dock were beautiful to sit on and enjoy the gorgeous scenery. The owners of the cabin were fantastic to deal with and were so thoughtful in leaving all the information about the area and things to do at our fingertips. We would love to return to this cottage and highly recommend.

Relaxing Vacation with my Family

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a relaxing getaway by the lake then this place does not disappoint. The owners have thought of everything to help make our stay here comfortable and relaxing.

- to include arriving to the home to have fresh baked muffins waiting for us.

The view of the lake from the master bedroom is breathtaking and so relaxing to fall asleep to and wake up to. All of the beds are very comfortable and my family had plenty of space to be together or find our own spot to relax. The home is isolated enough that we were not bothered by neighbors or by any noise from others.

While we were there we rented a boat from Harrison Boat Rentals and it was amazing. They delivered the boat right to the dock and picked it up from the dock at the end of our stay. We all had a blast tubing, wake boarding and just cruising around the lake.

The steps to get down to the cottage are as described and not for anyone with any kind of mobility issues or heart health issues. I highly recommend that you not over pack and prepare yourself for one trip from your car down to the house (the home has a washer and dryer so you can easily pack light and do laundry as needed). We made one grocery store run and planned out all of our meals so that we did not have to trek up and down the steps more than once.

We had an amazing time here and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet lake getaway.

Perfection on the lake

  • 5 of 5

Well maintained, amply equipped, cottage on the lake. The owner was great to work with prompt and helpful. Loved the view from the main bedroom in the morning. Spent the day on grassy area by the water and the evenings by the fire pit. Highly recommend getting wood from the young boy on the side of the road off hwy 97 about a mile before Eddyville Rd.($2 a pack). Bring plenty of fresh water and prepare for the 134 stairs down to the cabin...and more so up. Lots of bites off the dock fishing. Thank you Blevins family for sharing your beautiful space with us.

Beautiful views and super cute place

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy with this place super cute inside and loved the decks. The views from the two front bedrooms upstairs were incredible. It had everything we needed and was very clean. The paddle boat was a huge hit with everyone:) We all loved the dock, had a blast swimming, jumping off and fishing on it. The owner David was amazing very attentive to our needs. They had lemon Poppy seed muffins and a very nice welcoming note for us I would recommend this place to anyone. The steps were a bit of a challenge hiking up and down unloading things thank goodness we had 10 of us:) Thanks for an amazing vacation.
