The master bedroom has a queen bed and the 2nd bedroom has a twin bed. All towels, linens, and bedding are provided along with Directv satellite television, DVR and DVD player. Wifi is available and cellphones receive great 4G speeds. Outside, the cottage deck is setup for dining, relaxing, and BBQ grilling.

If you enjoy fishing the lake is known for striped and largemouth bass. Hire a fishing guide to target trophy striped bass (some as large as 40 lbs). Two kayaks are also available for your use.

Come experience the beauty of this cottage water front property.

The owners (Jeff & Beth) live next door - and are generally around for assistance if you need anything. We provide our guests complete privacy but are also open to sharing a cup of coffee or glass of wine if the opportunity presents itself. Jeff's always fishing on the lake so don't be surprised if an invitation presents itself.

About Jeff and Beth Turner

We are a happily married Christian couple of 30+ years with two adult children. Jeff is retired from a career as an engineer in the field of mapping and 3D visualization. Beth spent her early years in banking but is most credited for being available for our children as they grew up. Jeff is an avid fisherman (especially fly fishing - and once fished 50 states in 50 consecutive days with our son); loves boating; woodworking; college basketball & football; and hiking. He even hiked the 500 mile Camino de Santiago across Spain in 2014 and 110 mile Tour du Mont Blanc in the Alps in 2017. Beth loves decorating, being a wonderful hostess, and staying connected with family and friends.

Jeff and Beth Turner purchased this cottage in 2006

Steve (Sept 2017) In all of our travels we have never stayed in a vacation home that was better appointed than Jeff and Beth's cottage. Beautifully decorated with everything you need for wonderful days of rest and relaxation. Quality is the word that comes to mind when we think of how they have equipped the cottage. Within a few steps is a fantastic dock for your morning coffee, time on the lake or just relaxing in the sun. Jeff and Beth were excellent hosts who went the extra mile to make sure our stay was comfortable and special. My only regret is that we did not have another week in the cottage!

Donna (Sept 2017) Jeff and Beth are the BEST hosts! The cottage is beautifully decorated, very clean, and fully equipped with everything you will need. It's a great location on the lake. A private and peaceful setting whether using the boat dock or the cottage deck. The views from the boat dock are amazing and a great place to enjoy your morning coffee, evening wine or just relax and read a book. A 5 star is not enough. The icing on the cake is Jeff and Beth. You guys are great!

Cheryl (Sept 2017) My first priority is clean and this went beyond clean to Immaculate. Perfect guest house - Perfect hosts. The cottage was adorable. We would definitely return.

Stephanie (May 2017) Such an adorable, cozy, and relaxing place to stay. It was perfect for a quiet weekend getaway. They really do provide everything you would need! Including lots of extras, like kayaks, that we really enjoyed! My husband was happy as could be just fishing from the dock all day. Will definitely return.

Pat (October 2017) Jeff and Beth have a lovely cottage and location and are some of the kindest individuals I've met. The cottage is done to perfection, and everything is first-rate. You can definitely tell great care and love has gone into making this cottage so special. The kayaks that were available to us, the lake, the dock .... I could go on and on. It was a beautiful experience, and one we will cherish. Can't wait to come back and consider it a great blessing to have met this couple and stayed in their cottage!
