  • Lovely little getaway


    I very much wish to come back to this lovely little home with its thoughtful touches and beautifully kept grounds — hopefully once the hot tub is up and running again! Even without the hot tub, it was one of my favorite of all the VRBO properties I’ve stayed in over the years. It has a lot of personality and I felt comfortable and at home right away. We were visited by ducklings, herons, and bunnies. We brought paddle boards and inflatables and spent time on the lake. I enjoyed the hammock, and we entertained my in-laws one evening by the fire pit. Everything was great!

  • Cute and peaceful place


    We loved our experience at this cottage. It’s adorable, cozy, and clean. The location is great; right on the lake. We’d love to stay again. The only “issue” was the large cement hump pulling the parking area. I’d recommend taking a truck/suv so it doesn’t potentially damage your car. Not sure if that was due to the winter months and it’s smoother in the summer.

  • Snow nightmare


    We arrived at the VRBO after a snow storm, which we were concerned about. We arrived after a long drive and couldn’t figure out where to park, because the driveway and the long winding staircase down to the cottage had not been plowed or shoveled. We had to park our car in 5 inches of snow and then walk in very dangerous snow/ice conditions to the cottage (in the dark). The place itself was very nice but we were very disappointed with how the snow was managed and it was honestly dangerous. Either me or my spouse could have fallen down the steps and injured ourselves.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Arielle, we wanted to pass along the following response from the owners: "We are very sorry about the concerns with the snow, We hope you had a great stay, otherwise. We know the place was clean, the heat was working, there was plenty of firewood for you to use, and open communication with the owner at your disposal.
    Our regular snow removal person had a breakdown that day, and was without a truck. It was difficult getting anyone over to remove the snow, but we
    finally did get someone to clear the snow and they came as soon as possible.
    Our maintenance person came to clear the stairs and deck around the front door that night.
    You asked the maintenance person not to shovel by the side door or deck.
    We really do understand your frustration, as we travel a lot, and get easily annoyed when things aren’t 100% at our lodging.
    We take enormous pride in our rental business, and want people to feel at home.
    This was simply out of our control, and we hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay!"

  • Great place


    Being by the lake was really relaxing. The only complaints were the bed and water pressure. The bed was not comfortable at all which should be number one when you go away to relax. Other than that it was great.
