Amazing. My family and I had such a great time. We were able to dock our jet skis and our boat for the duration of the stay. Used the kayaks as much as possible, first time ever doing it and I’m in love. Such a nice little cottage and it was super quiet and relaxing. Would definitely book it again for when my father comes back.

Lovely, peaceful place!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage had everything we needed and the owner responded quickly to all of our inquiries. The sad part was you can't swim in the lake (or at least when we were there).

Lot's of nearby things to do!

Owner's Response: Hi Sheree, sorry about the issue with the lake, my neighbors said it was a temporary issue that was on a small piece of the lake on the other side that was only if someone came in contact with the plants. After the plants were treated the lake was safe to swim in a few days later. Besides that, i am very happy you had a enjoyable time. Hope you come back & i will work with you on the price for your next visit do to the lake issue. Thank you for leaving the house clean as you found it. John

Beautiful, quiet Lake Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our Dad’s 80th birthday. Quaint lake cottage with the lake just footsteps away from back door. Quiet with lots of outdoor deck space plus sunroom overlooking the lake. Clean, well stocked. John is very responsive. We would stay here again.

This location was perfect in every way. The photos only touched the surface. The few days went far to fast. Heaven can wait had all the little touches just sit & watch the lake do it's bit. If the boat belongs to you John(Only down side no keys shame ) but on a serious note everything was at hand. Comfortable property well maintained & we could not fault it credit to you John thanking you for the opportunity to stay in you home & would recommend this to anybody.
