Excellent Family Vacation! ! !

  • 5 of 5

It was perfect weather, perfect cottage, rustic, but everything worked perfectly inside, and it was the cleanest place we've ever stayed. Owners were a dream to work with, fair and firm, and great sense of humor. Understood customer service, and we'd love to go back. We came from 6 to 8 hours away, so it was a risk...but we're so glad we did!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the very favorable review. We try very hard to make our property fully satisfy your expectations, and we treat every renter as we'd like to be treated if the roles were reversed. We pride ourselves on making the cottage as spotless as possible for your arrival. Sounds like we succeeded. Come back again next year.

Perfect Description

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was more than expected, they thought of everything. The owners are very friendly and helpful with tips on local attractions.

I would highly recommend a stay on the lake.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. We believe this cottage is a real gem too, and hope others find your comments helpful. We spent a whole year rehabbing this property before we started renting it, and we continue to make upgrades. Your review confirms that we're on the right track!

Idyllic family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

"Cottage" is an understatement. The house is pretty spacious, with plenty of room for young kids (and adults) to run around and play -- upstairs in the big attic room, the big screened-in porch, on the deck, and especially the nice sandy little beach right in the backyard and the swimming beyond. The house is well stocked with bedding, blankets, towels etc , and the kitchen is especially well stocked with dishes, glasses, etc. Ray was very responsive to any requests we had. A perfect spot for a family vacation, swimming, boating (row boat and canoe provided), grilling, having friends over, and especially for making summertime memories!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review! We try very hard to provide everything you could possibly want to make your dream vacation a reality for your group whether all adults, or a family with young children. All you really need to bring is your beach towels, and food and beverages of your choice. We look forward to seeing you back again next year.
