  • A great log cabin vibe place near the lake


    We stayed for a weekend with my cousin and our teenage daughters..all had a great time. The neighbor lady, Carol was very sweet and helpful if we needed anything during our stay. Tim was a great host and answered all our questions. It has a small log cabin getaway vibe, some great furnishings, comfy beds, very clean and neat place. This house has everything you need and more. The photos do not do it justice, very cute and although small…feels spacious. A new gas grill outside, a fire pit, and a short walk to the end of the road with lake access. We rented a pontoon boat at Brian’s marina- was so fun we docked it at LimberLost and had lunch on the patio. We went to swim at the beach one day at the township park ~5 min drive- a nice close spot with pavilion and playground. Recommend highly! We want to come back and stay... Thank you Tim.
