Couldn't have been better!

  • 5 of 5

Our eight day stay at the Ulllman's cottage was perfect in every way! A beautifully appointed cottage, splendid view of the lake with a lovely deck, comfortable beds...actually, nothing lacking. Even though it rained two days, we enjoyed "staying in" and reading, resting, talking. Our repeated comment: "the best place we've ever rented and enjoyed!

Most people never mention that so thank you:) We so enjoyed meeting you both and look forward to your return!

Peaceful and comfortable retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved our three-day stay at this cottage. (We had to leave one day early to see our home through Hurricane Irma and were very sorry to go.) The cottage is pristine and especially well supplied with everything you'll need. We loved sitting on the deck and looking out over the small lake. So peaceful! The owners stopped by and introduced themselves and told us about the lake and the cottage. It was great to meet them and have some background on this delightful getaway spot. I'm sure we'll be back.

13th Anniversary getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Hubby planned a weekend getaway for our 13th anniversary and it was hands down the best anniversary we've ever had. The cottage was clean, spacous, and cozy. We just fell in love with the place. The owners were very sweet, and very much available when needed. We went fishing and really enjoyed the tranquility. In the end, we both agreed that we should have stayed a couple more days, a weekend just wasn't enough. We look forward to going back again. The cottage made our anniversary one we would never forget.

Somewhat disappointing

  • 3 of 5

There was little shade outdoors and the lake was uninviting ,stagnant.

The cottage was lovely and clean.

Owner's Response: The promo picture shows that our cottage is not tucked away in the woods. It is on the lake. So it is no surprise it is not in shade. The table with the umbrella stand on the deck does afford our guests shade. We also informed you at the time of your reservation that our lake level was down but by no means is the lake stagnant. It certainly had enough movement to accommodate your avid fishing and free use of the canoe and jon boat. Perhaps your expectation was for a larger lake with motorized boats. Our lake is a 20 acre lake with no tolerance of motorized boats. The privacy we afford our guests, where most often they do not have to share the lake with anyone, is second to none.

A Great Location and Beautiful Too

  • 5 of 5

If you like serinity and quiet this is it. A short ride to almost everything you may want to do. The cabin is neat and clean and fully equipped and ready to support your next vacation. Easy access is also a strong plus for this very nice mountain home. To the owner: Thank you for sharing it with us.

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you found peace at our cottage. That is truly what this setting offers. When you want to get away from it all, and enjoy the beauty of nature without having to share it with water skiers and speed boats, this is the place for you!!! Thank you for mentioning the proximity to shopping....only 15 minutes away fro downtown Murphy. We look forward to your return.
