Guestbook comments from the owner

Met by John & Mary in the driveway. Extremely nice and very hospitable. Way better that a hotel!! They both made us feel at home.

Definitely will stay here again for our next trip down.

Perfect for Eagle watching!

  • 5 of 5

The darling cottage sits only feet away from the lake. Owners are glad we had chosen their cottage for our two night stay. The room was clean, modern with many amenities all of which we used except the outdoor patio due to cool temps and gusty wind. Would recommend this cottage for couples or a small group anytime. Close to restaurants, park facilities, and, of course, Eagle viewing!!

Wonderful little cabin on lake!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to visit Reelfoot Lake for a quick weekend getaway and found John and Mary’s cabin. It was exactly what we wanted—a cozy cabin steps away from the lake! It’s in a great location close to the state park and has quite a few dining options. We will definitely be back to canoe the lake!!

4 adult girlfriends from Memphis (2 hours away) had a blast here! We loved the view, the view, the view and the fire pit! We were in town for the Reelfoot Eagles. The nearby restaurants were great, the scenery was simply fantastic. We had a great stay and John and Mary were kind and accommodating!
