Helpful owner. Quirky property.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

My family has come to Hess Lake for 3 years now. It's close to home and always a relaxing time. The weather was awesome. We love the washer/dryer so we can go home with clean clothes. The fenced yard works great for our dog- and he LOVES the water. We couldn't keep him out. We enjoyed fires on the beach, playing cards on the patio, great food cooked on the grill. Thanks again for sharing! FIVE STARS!

Nice location

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice time. There were 10 and some times 12 of us and wish there was another full bath. The owner was very responsive to our needs.

A perfect place

  • 5 of 5

The only thing that could have made our vacation any better was something totally out of Ric's control... The weather. Despite the cold and windy weekend, our group still had an absolutely amazing time at Ric's cabin. He left the most thoughtful welcome present (coffee which was widely used) and had the cabin equipped with everything you could possibly need during your trip and more. Will definitely be back

Incredible view! Spacious cottage for multiple couples or big family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This place is incredible!

It is so home-y!

There are multiple bedrooms that are laid in a spacious floor plan to allow big families or multiple couples enough space to hangout together or get-away from each other!

There is an enormous deck over looking the lake that is just awe inspiring. We were there in the winter, but I could imagine living on the porch for days in the summer.

The kitchen was the big draw for us. We came with our own food, but the kitchen is stocked with all the equipment any person would need to cook or bake for a full crew.

Lastly, there is a gorgeous wood bar that we didn't take advantage of, but I have fantasies of coming back with friends in the summer.

Also, the owner was extremely attentive and responsive. I highly recommend this property.

Relaxing end of summer weekend

  • 5 of 5

We took our two daughters, their husbands and our grandsons, one a year old and the other 10 1/2 months. The cottage was just right, because we could put one family upstairs and one downstairs so that it was quiet for naps. We enjoyed our own private beach and rented the kayaks for one of the last weekends of summer. Weather was great. Even caught catfish in the evening and had a bonfire. I am used to packing my house to go camping, so it was nice to just try to limit myself to one box of food and not take my whole kitchen! Everyone had a great time and we hope to try another weekend next year. Ric left cookies & rolls for us and the guys were happy with that! Beautiful place and nicely decorated. Loved it! Relaxing for me, because we took turns cooking. Thanks
