    Thank you for having us! We loved your property and the use of the fire pit and kayaks. It was a perfect little getaway for my 30th!

  • Cozy cottage


    It was very good but the bathroom could be a bit bigger that was very tiny. We appreciated the grill and the kayaks. Our grandkids really enjoyed them.

    It was very peaceful and relaxing.

  • A quaint getaway


    My friends and I stayed for a bday week away. Everything was close to get to, we had an amazing day at the island, spent an evening in downtown, and had so much rest and relaxation reading down by the lake.Only 1 tiny annoying thing, anytime we tried to use more that 1 stove burner or oven, smoke detector went off, with no smoke in the cottage. otherwise an amazing week away.

  • Nice and cozy


    Cute cottage with efficient layout. Great (level) yard for frisbee, sandy beach makes it easy to launch kayaks. Truly lovely lake. Convenient location to area attractions. Minor cons: very tiny pedestal sink, dining table not big enough for some board games. Wall A/C unit is good but air flow to bedrooms is limited.

  • Great place


    Perfect location and size for the two of us. Might want to consider a fire pit for each place. The people next to us dominated the one fire pit the entire time
