This is the Place. The sunsets were great. Fishing was good. Cabin had everything they said and more. If you want a quiet getaway this is a winner.

Had great weather and a fun and peaceful trip.

We caught a lot of Bluegill and some nice perch. Bass a few but not keepers. This was a 2 different families fishing so we had 6 people. Had nice dock space, the deck was nice but looks like has not been used since last year.

Only 2 items kept me from giving it 5 stars. #1 the bathroom wall was finished about 4 inches short from the wall so the adjoining bedroom at night heard everyones bathroom business. #2 you need to bring your own sheets not an issue but 1 of the bunk beds did not look very good.

We would definitely rent again.

Orland is close by and has a nice breakfast place and for dinner in Bronson the 5 star pizza place and Bill Millers were real good.

Great Fishing for kids !

  • 5 of 5

Very nice and clean cottage. Exactly as described by owner. Lake bottom is very mucky so older kids didn't swim but enjoyed catching fish off the dock and row boat. Toddlers swam in shoreline which had a more solid bottom. Deck wonderful and where we enjoyed eating and playing games. I would recommend this cottage.
