My husband and I had the most wonderful stay at The Sugar Shack, great location and the shack was well appointed, comfortable and it was great having gas and charcoal BBQ’s to cook on outside. Used the fire pit lots on the patio and now are going to one when we get home to the UK! Enjoyed canoeing on the lake which was provided for use between The Sugar Shack and The Loft, also fun having the dock to sit on and took drinks down on a few evenings, plus Kim put the floatie in for us to use which was fun. Probably would have used it more if the weather had been more consistent 😉 Kim was so lovely and helpful; went out of her way to ensure our stay was relaxing and stress free - so thank you so much Kim 😊 Would definitely recommend the Sugar Shack as a relaxing, romantic place to stay. Brilliant holiday!

Cozy for two, missing water view!

  • 3 of 5

This was a cozy cottage for two, very quiet and private. Very clean. Bed was super comfortable and loved the blue tooth speakers when linked to my music on Iphone! Nice hot tub outside.

Couple of drawbacks not outlined in property information - this cottage is in the trees with a view of a rundown storage shed. No views of lake and it is a very steep hike down (and back up!!!) to the cottage from the lake. Once at the lake, it was calm and not too cold - lovely for swimming and lounging but not ideal for just having coffee or sunset drinks since not easily accessible.

There is an air conditioner upstairs in bedroom which had to be running constantly. No screen on balcony off bedroom which I would have preferred on cooler nights - so quiet there so would have been great to listen to night sounds rather than air conditioner.

The bathtub is in bedroom and would take forever to fill with water. There is no shower. Lake water only in cottage. Potable water jugs were supplied for cooking and drinking. Minimal kitchen utensils, etc.

All in all, we enjoyed our stay but when I rent a cottage that boasts waterfront, beachfront, I expect to be able to see and access water easily from cottage.

Great trip but I think vrbo site almost messed up trip

  • 4 of 5

We arrived and found several things “off” from what what was expected. We couldn’t get the surround to work, the oven didn’t work, the place was freezing, etc. We tried contacting the owner by phone and the number that was under “check in instructions” on the website was wrong and the guy said that he hasn’t worked for them in a while. After messaging on the vrbo website and we’re here for a few hours we got a set of “real check in instructions” that explained how everything worked, the oven dosent work etc... had we received these instructions before we arrived we wouldn’t have planned on using the stove, been able to use the surround sound right away, etc. So I believe if we only delt with the owner I would have rated This place 100 stars, this website information needs to be updated !
