Relaxing retreat for the entire family

  • 4 of 5

We just loved staying here! The views were amazing. Loved watching the kids play and jump off the dock or kayak. Very relaxing and quiet. There was plenty to do both inside and out. Lots of board games and an Xbox for the teens.

Just wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This is the best secret on Lake Amelia... the cabin is beautiful, comfortable, clean, the outside is perfect, we had the best week ever, weather was nice and the fishing was out of this world according to both my Dad and niece. Lisa was great, answered all my questions about the cabin before hand. Of course we took and posted several pictures of the lake and I have had several people already asking about the property. I gave them all the information. We drove into Glenwood a few times for ice and bait, nice little town.

Wonderful Lake Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this modern cabin on Lake Amelia! The place was very clean and well kept. We liked the knotty pine throughout the cabin and the beautiful view of the lake through the many windows across the front. The porch out front was a nice place to relax with the shade of several trees and the close proximity to the lake. Fishing off the dock was good, but even better out in our boat. We especially enjoyed taking the kayaks out and seeing how close we could get to the loons. We would recommend this cabin to anyone and hope to go back again ourselves in the future!
