About Owner / Property Manager Karen Dempsey

Currently living in the Saginaw area, we were frequent visitors of the area. We searched the real estate in this area almost 10 years before this purchase. The best selling point was the beautiful water and excellent hard sand bottom frontage. Owning the property has only made us love the area more. There is so much to see and do. And when you want to unwind just listening to the waves under the covered porch will do that in a hurry.

Owner / Property Manager Karen Dempsey purchased this cabin in 1999

The most well stocked, well maintained, easy to enjoy cottage and property we have been to.

  • 5 of 5

We took six of our grandchildren ages 3-13 to this cottage for a week and we all had the best time ever. The cottage is so well stocked with anything the kids could want and the lake was amazing. They had a blast jumping off the end of the dock at least a hundred times a day as well as just swimmimng and fishing. We were away from the cottage for about an hour one day but the rest of our time was enjoyed right there. It was so relaxing and just lots of family fun. I had taken lots of extra supplies thinking of past cabin/cottage experiences but much of what I took stayed in the camper. We really only needed toiletries, food, linens, and towels. Everything else was there. What a great place to enjoy a simple family vacation.

Great time at a great cabin

  • 5 of 5

Had a last minute change of heart about a week before our trip to try and rent a cabin. This turned out to be perfect. Even with the rain, the back deck was still enjoyable because of the roof. The owners were very accommodating and I would highly recommend this cabin for anyone trying to plan a cost efficient trip on a beautiful lake!

Loved the shoreline!

Loved the location! The best part was the shoreline. The porch was a great place to gather around and was very spacious. Would stay again.

Very beautiful

  • 4 of 5

My family and I had a wonderfully relaxing time there. The beach area was perfect for our grandkids. They had a blast walking out on the sandbar, swimming and collecting shells and rocks. I spent most of my time on that great dock fishing and just relaxing. My wife said she had a the best time relaxing.
