Great place to get away!

  • 5 of 5

Cheryl and Tom are the nicest hosts around. They maintain their property quite well. The living space was clean and comfortable. The porch over-looking the lake was peaceful. It was a good place to just get away for a couple of days from life.

My wife and I stayed for a 3-day weekend and had an amazing time getting away from it all. Come sip coffee on the deck or make your way down to the dock to enjoy the calm water. The lake is very quiet on the weekdays in particular, so there is hardly a noise as you watch the sunset and the ripple of the water.

The unit is very much as advertised, and the owners are always willing to help if anything could be improved or you need assistance. We brought a boat to spend a good chunk of time on the water, and the owner even moved their jet-ski lift over to allow for easier boat storage along their dock. The lake has pretty decent fishing, bass in particular, though the shorelines tended to be pretty weedy and even slimy in areas where it was shallow. Don't expect a sandy beach at this lake, but you can definitely assure yourself a good time out and about on a boat (or enjoy the newly placed swim platform out in front of the dock). Its a beautiful lake to cruise, do watersports, fish, and just enjoy being in the water as long as you're away from shore.

The unit itself was very clean, and a recent remodel in the basement to allow for the small wet bar area. The bedroom and bathroom were freshly remodeled as well with some nice touches to allow for cozy evenings in, or plenty of space if you're like us and like to play some games on your free time. The bed seemed slightly smaller than a queen (maybe a double?) but it honestly wasn't a complaint as it kept us closer. The mounted TV with pretty much all of the premium channels made it easy to cuddle up and fall asleep to a movie together too. You may notice some footsteps above you when the owners are home and spending time in the living spaces, but honestly its not much of an issue since everything is full privacy and separated for your convenience.

If you stay here and plan to grab a meal in town, we would definitely recommend checking out the "Hotel Bar & Grill" right in the heart of the old downtown in Turtle Lake. We went there twice and enjoyed both meals greatly.

We suggested a fire pit as it is a beautiful property to sit out and enjoy the yard, and the owners mentioned that they were hoping to install one very soon. We would definitely recommend this as a quiet getaway for any couple, and if you happen to enjoy being out on the lake its even better!

Beautiful spot on Upper Turtle Lake! Why stay at a hotel?

  • 5 of 5

The lower level of this home on Upper Turtle Lake was an awesome spot to stay. The hosts Cheryl and Tom made us feel VERY welcome. They were always attentive to our needs and went out of their way to make it a great experience. We enjoyed the kayaks and saw loons and an eagle. Wonderful amenities and we would definitely stay again when in the area visiting family.

We had a good time. Tom and Cheryl were very accommodating. They had a boat we could use to go fishing and we caught fish. Very nice place, and we hope we can do this again.
