  • Great Lake views & comfortable space

    "The exterior is not appealing but inside is spacious & updated. Well-stocked kitchen & generous good quality sheets & towels. Kids love the foosball table. Note there is a somewhat long path downhill to the lake. Nice sandy shallow swimming -no weeds. Some minor issues: noisy dehumidifier in walkout level; bunk beds are in small closet-like room & trundle beds crammed into 2nd BR. Other 2 beds just ok. Entire exterior & deck needs maintenance."

  • A great "loon" experience

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our time at this beautiful home on Pickerel Bay. The view from the living room affords the opportunity to see beautiful sun rises and sunsets as well as loon and eagle watching. We woke up to loons every day and each evening we listened again as they called to each other to find their way "home". We saw a few eagles (or maybe it was the same one) over the course of our two week stay. Even watching the rain was enjoyable to us as we found it very relaxing. The water is so clear, we would sit on the dock and watch the fish. Hubby caught many bass, but the walleye seemed to stay in hiding. We ended up going to Pughole Lake and there he caught quite a few Northern Pike. We loved taking drives down the many dirt roads but found out that without 4-wheel drive it wouldn't be a good idea...and if the sign says "share the road" and there's a picture of a 4-wheeler, well, you may not want to venture down that road! lol We ate at Cedar Creek Grille and found the food wonderful, but mostly cooked at the cabin, either inside or on the gas grill. On rainy days we watched movies and took naps and did puzzles, but when we could, we were on the water! It was so nice having a dock as it would rain, then clear up and we could go for a paddle in the kayaks to watch the sun set...sigh...loved it! We paddled to Little Trout Lake one day and saw a Loon on her nest, then she dove into the water and we were able to see her swimming it was so clear. Another day we paddled to Trout Lake and we paddled to Bluewater Lake a couple of times. The water is a bluish green on Bluewater Lake and Little Trout...just like you're kayaking in an acquarium...can't say enough about it! We purchased wood from Greg up the road and had a bonfire one night and it got a little chilly another night so we actually had a fire in the fireplace, lol. All the accommodations were wonderful. I wonder, however, would you consider including the motor boat with the rental? :)"

  • Best family vacation ever!!

    "This vacation was the best ever! The cabin is beautiful, modern but still has that On Golden Pond feel. Private, secluded but not so much that you feel completely alone. There isn't a lot of activity on the lake so you pretty much feel like the whole lake is yours. The fishing was excellent. My husband and I would go out and spend hours just sitting and fishing, enjoying the peace and quiet while occasionally hearing the loons. Our children enjoyed the vacation as well, they got to relax, they pretty much stay busy all summer with sports! We definitely want to come back!"

  • Great cozy cottage

    "We rented the cottage for one week (in Summer) and we had fabulous time all week long. The lake is great (for swimming and Kayaking) and the two (upper and lower) decks are the coolest places to hand out with the family. We also used Kayaks that are available with the property. The owner is super responsive and very accommodating (as our plan changed a bit in the middle) . I would definitely rent this cottage again in future."
