About Karen Malsbury
My husband, Simon and I purchased the cottage in November of 2014. We wanted a space "Up North" that we could go to to hang as a family and not be distracted by every day life. Our 11 and 9 year old daughters never complained about the 21/2 hour ride from Rochester to the cottage. Our Golden Retriever's Toby and Harper know as soon as we start packing that we are going to the Cottage. Its a great place to relax and watch the sun set over lake George, snuggle by the fire and take advantage of the hiking, biking and recreational areas near by.

We were 6 adults and although the cottage can sleep 6, it's a little snug for that many in the rest of the space. But we called it "cozy." The neighborhood is very, very quiet. It was exactly what we expected and exactly what we were looking for! (Just so you know, the driveway is a little narrow; and definitely bring drinking water as Karen recommends.) Thanks, Karen. It was great! We will probably be back next year.
Glad you enjoyed the cottage. You are correct with your description of the driveway. We are on a Well so bottled water is a must. Cozy is correct. Less than 800 square feet. :-) hope to hear from you again soon.
Very nice property and great location! We were able to get to many different state parks and sites easily. Thank you for letting us stay in your cabin!
Glad you enjoyed the area. Hope to hear from you again.
Very peaceful and comfortable.
We needed a few days to relax in a quiet, peaceful setting and this was it. Perhaps being mid-week made a difference, but there were very few people around. Beach was empty, which we used both days. The house is rustic and comfortable. We appreciated having our dog with us, as she needed the excitement. A very good trip. Thank you Karen!
Glad you had a lovely relaxing time away. Shady shores is a nice quiet place during the week. Hope to hear from you again.
My sisters & I were able to meet there & spend time together!! Lots of laughs!
We especially enjoyed the area having spent time in Shady Shores as children. The cottage was quite comfortable. There was no tv but there were many dvd’s available. Because the water wasn’t the best, we did bring our own.
Glad you had a lovely weekend with your sisters. We do not have access to cable up at the cottage however there is internet streaming if you have a netflicks / hulu or vudu account. We are on a well so yep, bring your own water. Even my dogs won't drink it. :-)
Great, relaxing getaway with all the right toys available to help us enjoy it to the fullest!
This is a rustic cottage retreat located in a quiet area directly across from the lake. They had kayaks w/ life jackets available that can be launched from the dock just across the road. The swimbeach is about 1/4 mile down the road and offers sand beach, covered picnic area, swings and volleyball court. The deck offers a peaceful setting for relaxing and watching the views! The kitchen and living areas were stocked with everything I found necessary, including some games, WiFi, cooking and grilling essentials, etc. This is Up North MI so prepare for well water (bring bottled or jug for drinking), mosquitos and spiders. Cell service at cabin was reliable, but sketchy in surrounding areas. Nearby Cedar Bar had great food and service. Gas station a couple miles away offered laundry and other grocery/bait necessities. We also enjoyed golf at Greenbriar, Rifle Lake and River Rec area, Iargo Springs. Tons to do or just sit and enjoy the peace!!
Thankyou so much for such an accurate portrail of our cottage in Shady Shores. Glad you had a lovely time x
