Cottage 4 is our closest one to the lake. It has a small screen porch and a large kitchen and living space. It has two bedrooms. One bedroom has a queen bed and the other bedroom has a full and a twin bed. It has a large picture window that looks directly on the water and is just steps away from the beach. There is a large common grounds area with picnic tables, grills, large swings, fire pit and shared deck over the beach. The beach has a volleyball net and another fire pit. The beach is wonderful for children. There is a sandbar that stretches out several hundred feet so they can easily play in the water without a big drop off. The beach is perfect for sunbathing, swimming, kayaking and long walks with your toes in the sand. At night it affords a spectacular view of the over-water sunset and stargazing.

Great location and clean!
My sister and I stayed here for the weekend and loved this cute, cozy & clean cottage steps away from a private beach. Definitely will be going back!
Beautiful location, a spectacular sunset every night!
Cheri and Mary very attentive and helpful. The grounds are beautiful! We enjoyed the common deck with a great view of the lake. The cottage furnishings are rustic but comfortable. We enjoyed our stay very much.
So relaxing with lakeview to die for!
The cottage was perfect for me and my daughters. The breeze off the lake was wonderful and the fact that we could walk out the door and onto the beach was exactly what we were looking for! Nice that their was a charcoal grill, beach chairs, lovely swing under the trees and even beach toys and volleyball net for our use!! The owners were fantastic and readily available to answer questions or assist with any issues.
Everything was clean and great! Our cabin was right on the lakefront so we had a beautiful view. The only really non-issue was the bed was a little too hard for our liking. Other than that we would go back anytime!
The stay at Krebs Cottages was awesome! The cottage was clean, spacious and comfortable. The property is beautiful! Falling asleep listening to the waves, waking up to the waves and the sun rise. We went off season after labor day and didn't have great weather and we didn't realize a lot shuts down after labor day but we made the best if it and had fun anyways! I can't wait to go back to Krebs! One of my favorite spots!
Such a Great Place!!
This was our second time back at Krebs and it is just plain beautiful!! We enjoyed every minute!!
