Best vacation in many years!!
Perfect "home away from home"! Clean, well furnished and great location. We'll be back for future stays.
Beautiful cottage for summer vacation
We had a wonderful vacation staying in this cottage on Lake Bellaire. The owner was very friendly and welcoming. The cottage was beautifully furnished and very clean. It is on a shared property of six cottages. We had a great view of the lake from our cottage and we enjoyed getting to know the owners and renters of the other cottages. Lake Bellaire is a beautiful lake for boating and swimming.
