Another family vacation in the books...Breathtaking, Comfortable, Hospitable, and more!
My experience from beginning to end was 5 star. Gary, the owner, was quick to respond, friendly, and welcoming.
The house is represented well in the photos, until you get there. The place was immaculately clean with all the comforts of home. The beds are so comfortable, the kitchen is well stocked with all the gadgets that one would need, the property was absolutely beautiful. We opted to get the newly refurbished rooms above the garage, so glad we did. Custom cabinets, beautiful flooring, the bed was amazingly comfortable, it was our oasis.
The lake was crystal clear, and not too cold. With the rental came the use of several canoes and kayaks with your own private dock. The decking by the dock was so inviting with the colorful (and comfortable) seating and flowers. I whiled away many hours there taking it all in. My husband fished quite a bit with some good luck.
You can tell that a lot of care is taken in this home. Wonderful people sharing their wonderful home. I feel very lucky to have been able to share this experience. I have rented multitudes of homes in the same price range, and this is by far the best house we have ever stayed in. We will be back if they'll have us.
Amy, thank you for your review. I am so glad to hear you had a good time. This is our 20th year renting our home on Cold Stream and Patty and I try to make our place a little better each year. It is very rewarding to know you love our camp.
We would love to have you back again next year. Stay safe.
Everything we expected and more ! !
As experienced travelers we were very happy with our stay. The photos did not do justice to this lovely well equipped "5 Star" home and property. Gary is also a "5 Star" Owner. Everything was as described and he contacted us as we checked in to make sure everything was o.k.
Everything was spic and span and we enjoyed every moment of this stay. A great experience and looking forward to our stay next year.

Perfect lake cabin
The cabin is perfect and the location is a quiet spot on a gorgeous lake. Canoes were fantastic. Gary was friendly and a great help - very responsive to questions. We had an amazing time and I highly recommend this place.
Wonderful cottage on our favorite lake anywhere! The cottage and the additional ‘apartment’ provided a great setting for a family vacation with our adult children. The accommodations were excellent!!!!
Cold Stream Pond- 5 Stars all around
This is our fourth time renting this property and we are just as impressed as year 1. It is a perfect family retreat, with every detail thought of. The owners are very responsive, and the location couldn't be more beautiful. We are already looking forward to next year!
