About the property

2 Bedroom, Living Room With Pull Out Couch, Sleeps 6, Dining Room, 1 Bathroom

Sunset Retreat is a beautiful cottage that has a lakeview dining room and bar area, full kitchen, master bedroom(queensize bed), smaller guest bedroom(bunk bed with trundle), spacious living room with a pull out couch, satellite tv and one full bathroom. The cottage will sleep 7.

Outdoors we have a large Brock Deck with patio furniture, fire pit by the lake with all the wood you need, a shed for storage that has some fishing poles, cornhole games, and a couple of bikes for riding around the lake. There is also a 220 plug on the side of the house for a camper or motorhome to plug in. The pier and seawall are great for swimming, fishing or bringing your own boat. Best of all are the great sunsets that we get all year long. Lake Bruce has a fun sandbar in the middle of the lake known as the 'Bouys' for lots of fun. Muskie, bass and panfish inhabit the lake and are a great catch.

If you are looking for a quiet getaway, a girls weekend, a family vacation or guys golf trip , Sunset Retreat is the spot.

It was a very nice home. A sweet getaway on a beautiful lake.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. My son was in heaven on the body board fishing all day. He's 15. The girls loved sunning on the dock. And I enjoyed the paddle boat. The house was perfect.

Wonderful quaint waterfront cottage

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time in Kyle's clean and nicely-decorated cottage. We brought our boat and kept it tied to the dock for easy use.

Very quiet and enjoyable.

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I needed to get away from the busyness of life and just relax for awhile. This cottage was just what we needed. It is set up so you almost always have a view of the lake which is calming all by itself. The bed was very comfortable and of a higher quality than others we have stayed in.

I would have given this place 5 stars except that the water softener broke and flooded the porch which really is not the owners fault. However, it did cause us to have to clean up a lot of water and also to have repairmen there for a short while two of the days we stayed. Also one of the adult bikes was missing so we weren't able to go bike riding as planned. Otherwise, everything was clean and there were a lot of things provided which made our stay much more convenient. We would stay again sometime.

We had a very relaxing weekend

  • 5 of 5

We would like to thank the Rans for opening their cottage up to us. My family and I were able to spend Thursday through Sunday together just relaxing and fishing. The cottage was very clean and had everything you would need towels, dishes, grill, and an outside shed to put our fishing poles in. Thank you Cathy & John ~ Indiana
