Great house

Big Cottage and Very Private

  • 5 of 5

The cabin worked well for our group. It had some great space to play and relax. We wish it was a little bit closer to the water. But other than that, it worked well!

Wonderful relaxing get away

  • 5 of 5

Enjoy our experience despite not having hot water for 24 hours due to plumbing issues. House cleanliness could have been better when we arrived, left it cleaner than we found it. Would return in a heart beat though. Loved it!

Perfectly fit our needs!

We rented this and Linda's other properties for a large event. It was great to have the whole place and all of our family and friends were impressed! Linda and Drew assisted with all the details.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My group visited this home for the second summer in a row and we had another great stay. The home itself is beautiful and clean, and there's so much to do (hot tub, three televisions, tons of movies, games, fire pit, canoes, kayaks, bikes, etc.). There's a dock and a stream a few hundred feet from the home and then a larger private lake about a seven minute walk away. Having a private lake is awesome, it really feels like a luxury. Drew, the grounds keeper, is great too! This was my fourth visit to one of Linda's properties and I highly recommend staying with her; she's responsive, helpful, and her properties are beautiful and well-stocked with things to do.
