Best vacation of our lives!

  • 5 of 5

The house is even more beautiful than the pictures can show! It's very well stocked, and very comfortable. I loved that it was in a little cove of the lake so the kids could boat and swim and fish without worry of being disturbed. The dogs that wander the yard are all friendly, one even letting my 2 year old blow bubbles at it's face and give it kisses. Close to stores, yet far out in the country, so you get that really peaceful feeling. We hope to be back next year!

The cottage was nice and cozy. The lake was easily accessable and I thought it was great having a boat ramp. My daughter and wife enjoyed lying in the sun on the dock. We enjoyed grilling out on the back deck. All the folks around us were very nice.Would highly recommend anyone staying at the cottage.Thank you Glenn for letting us stay at your lovely place.

Our fishing vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and comfortable. Beautifully decorated. We were glad they had a boat ramp is one of the reasons we picked this particular location. The week we stayed there went fast but we enjoyed it tremendously. The neighbors were very friendly. We highly recommend it to other vacationers. Hopefully it will be available for next years rental.

Fishing Trip

  • 5 of 5

Our two week vacation was very enjoyable. We liked the quiet location and the weather cooperated by being mostly in the 80's. The neighbors and even the dogs were friendly. We would rent the house again.

Spent more time than we wanted in the house due to crappy weather. And I am not referring to the fish. Some days it was warmer in PA, Last year it was 80's, this year mostly 30's to 50's. Thank goodness the property is so nice.
