Lovely home ...beautiful lake.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 12 thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend in this lovely home. The home is very clean and well stocked. The kitchen and dining area are spacious and nice. The deck off the kitchen is very large and well maintained. The lake is very pretty and we all enjoyed swimming and taking the boat out. Quiet neighborhood. There's not a lot to do in the immediate area but we only wanted time together by the water so this fit the bill. The dock was great for the kids to fish off of and the boathouse was very nice to have lunch or sit and have coffee. I would recommend this home to any family or group. Lovely and pretty home and so much fun!

Cottage was great and very clean. Lake is okay

  • 4 of 5

Tonya is a great owner there were a couple of issues that she addressed immediately. The lake is not as clean as I would like could only see about a foot down but definitely you can swim and enjoy yourself. We were told by others that where the cottage is located the river and the lake meet. Boat rental is limited so book a boat early if looking to rent. If the lake was a little cleaner it would have received 5 stars.

Spacious, Clean, Everything you Need Rental!

  • 5 of 5

There were 10 of us who rented the home for a relaxing bachelorette weekend at the lake. We were very impressed with how clean the home was and all of the things provided by the owner. There were ample amounts of paper products, cleaning supplies, bedding and linens for our stay. There was plenty of room in the home for all of us to sleep and enjoy our time there. The neighbors were very kind and the lake is beautiful! Even on a gorgeous day, there weren't too many boats out on the water which was nice. I would definitely recommend this property to others, Tonya is a wonderful, responsive host!

Amazing Memorial weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We were really surprised when we arrived. The house is beautiful and CLEAN! It doesn't even feel like reantal property - it's so cozy. Master bedroom is outstading - so beautiful, bright, clean and with breath taking view through the windows. Outside is amazing too, beautiful updated deck, nice and clean yard, little cute gazebo for chilly evenings..

Also - very nice and easy-to-deal-with owner. We had some issues with the grill and she responded really quick and helped to solve this problem right away. The town itself is amazing, so small and quite. We are from Chicago and even the drive there was perfect too - not even 3 hours.

Me and my friends really enjoyed our stay, we are looking forward to comeback there again.

Thanks you so much, Tonya!!
