                                                              Nice Lakefront Cottage with Great Porch

                                                              mike s.

                                                              This house had everything that we needed. Master bedroom upstairs overlooked the lake. Bedrooms for everybody. Don't need to bring anything as owner had thought of everything. We ate all of our meals on the porch, breakfast through dinner (inside dining room very large if want to eat in). Grilled out a couple of times. Nice eating outside with the covered porch overlooking the lake. Tied up our pontoon boat to the dock - very convenient. House also located within walking distance of local marina. Running/bicycle trail also across street.

                                                              So relaxing!

                                                              Six of us -- a family of 5 with three older boys, my husband, me and the boys' uncle, thoroughly enjoyed this cottage. As one reviewer wrote, if you want granite countertops and modern accoutrements, this may not be for you. But we were charmed by the comfort, the nooks and crannies, the history, the kitchen and dining areas that made me feel I'd entered a world where many a happy family spent their time. Bedrooms with sinks in the corner! A wrap-around porch you could not set foot on without wanting to sit down with a good book and a glass of wine. All of us fought for naps on the hammock. The sidewalk that runs up and down a long length of the lake became an evening walk tradition. And best of all is Julia, the owner, who readily shares information about places to see in the area, and is very responsive to questions. The whole thing felt like a real getaway.

                                                              Amazing house...like a movie set

                                                              Catherine D.Cincinnati, Ohio

                                                              My family has rented this house for a week for the past two summers and it is simply incredible. It's a true lake house, with an amazing porch, a huge lawn for frisbee throwing and a swim dock into the lake. The house is wonderful with large bedrooms, lovely art and a huge dining room table for family meals and game playing. The owner is absolutely lovely and someone we now count as a friend. If you want granite countertops and stainless steel everything, this is not your spot. If you want to stay in a home that feels like it's been loved by your family for generations, this is it. We love everything about it. Look for the messages written by "summer staff" from the 20’s written on the walls of the maids room off the kitchen. This house is a treasure.
