About the property

3 Bedroom Cottage Tucked In The Forest On A Private Cove. Sleeps 4

**Please see or call 434-953-6747 for more information**

The LaSota Cottage offers flexible accommodations for up to four people. Located at the end of a cove and surrounded by woods, the house offers a quiet location far from boat noise on the lake.

The water depth below the private dock is six feet and includes space to moor your boat. Bringing your boat into the dock requires some gentle maneuvering, but once you have pulled up, your boat is protected from the wakes of passing boats. On the other side of the dock is a, safe swimming area at end of the cove.

The primary living space on the main floor includes three bedrooms (queen, full and bunk beds) and a full bathroom. The fully equipped kitchen is open to the living room and dining area, and the large deck with views of the lake and forest. Cable TV service is available on all the televisions in the home, including the flat-screen TV in the living room, TVs in three of the bedrooms and the TV in the lower level family room.

The lower level is accessed via a separate exterior entrance and is a great place for kids to get away to play foosball and table hockey, or to relax in front of the television. The lower level has a galley kitchen, laundry facilities, a bathroom with a shower, and a bedroom with a queen bed.

LaSorta Cottage Review

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is nice with two separate living areas, which worked out fine as we stayed with our daughter and her husband. They took the downstairs and we took the upstairs. There are three bedrooms upstairs but they choose the downstairs for privacy. The unit heat/AC is controlled upstairs so everyone gets the same level of comfort or cold as it controls both areas. The living room is big and somewhat comfortable - a few more pillows on the couch would be nice so everyone could lean back when playing games, watching TV, etc. The kitchen is nice and we cooked a full Thanksgiving dinner for 4 in it. The manager is very helpful and responsive as I called him twice for information and he immediately responded in email or with a call so if you have any issues, he will address it. The fire pit outside is nice when the weather is cold and we used it every day. The area is nice to walk around in for hikes and the morning and evening views of the lake are good - not great as you are in a cove and your view is across the cove, not the lake although you can see the lake from the house. Overall it was a nice place to stay and would rent it again.

A wonderful place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

Private and clean with beautiful views and great outdoor furniture. The kitchen was nicely equipped and the bathroom had a great shower. The lighting in the living room was inadequate. Needed to have a floor lamp or two behind the sofa instead of light being supplied by overhead ceiling fans. I stayed in the bunk bed room which needed a small table and a lamp. The front porch lamp was not working and neither were the back flood lights. Luckily we had brought flashlights to make it to the back entrance. Otherwise, it was so enjoyable and an amazing getaway!

Review of LaSota Cottage

  • 4 of 5

My sister, my husband and I enjoyed a few relaxing days at the Huddleston property. The view of the water is wonderful. The weather was ideal. The cottage was very comfortable. We found everything in the cottage to be in working order and very clean and usable. We would book again. J.Palladino, Summerton, SC

Love everything about it

  • 5 of 5

Perfect, everything possibly needed in one home: view, deep bath tub , modern appliances throughout , grill, fire pit for smores, outside table and chairs on deck and on boat dock, which came in handy for boat we rented. Nice for a weekend get away and this year family vacation, enough room downstairs for more family members with their own bathroom and kitchenette. Also love that it is pet friendly. Rented pet friendly pontoon boat to sight see, eat out and swim

Very relaxing!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the week we spent here, especially the quiet cove with plenty of fish! Home is well equipped and well taken care of, though kitchen could use a few items (tongs, serving bowls) and many of the dishes were chipped. The yard is large, the walk to the dock is easy, the view is great and the house had plenty of room for a family of 4 and a dog!
