    The heading for the rental says "A cozy cabin on Otter Lake." The description describes a lake path where there is a canoe available on property for use. I reserved this for my family of five: three teens and two adults, with the intention to enjoy kayaking and paddle boarding because of the ability to access the lake from the property. This is incorrect. There was a path that had to be removed to protect the wildlife/ecosystem on the bog that connects to the lake. We had no access whatsoever. When I contacted the host to discuss resolution of the problem he suggested a very minor adjustment, considering the in season rental price we had to pay. I offered paying the off season rate since we used the cabin but had to make other arrangements correct the lack of water access from the property. While he responded to other emails he refused to respond to that request. He had advanced knowledge of us securing the booking for the second payment and never shared that knowledge with us. He also only shared further directions for the cabin that is more expansive and could alter opting to rent the property until two days before we arrived.

    I find the way this was handled was underhanded and misleading. The cabin was rustic and is as appears as it is in the pictures but if you are hoping to store anything in the cabinets or dressers change plans. They left all of their personal items so we had very limited storage. We were there for 13 days so having food not stored away and clothes not able to go in the dressers was a frustration. If you are renting this off season for a getaway that has nothing to do with the lake then this is a reasonable pet friendly place for you. If you actually want what is described with lake access look elsewhere.

  • Cozy Cabin


    I loved the camp. It was clean, roomy, and had all the things you would need to get by. It was also a convenient location to everything. I gave it a 4star because the picture was deceiving. You couldn't sit in the chairs and see the water which was a wide stream leading to the lake. The path to get to the canoe was horrible. It was very swampy and slippery. Be sure to bring boots!! If you made it to the canoe, you can paddle to the lake.

    The cabin was very nice. The decor was great and there were many amenities. The reason I gave a 4 score rather than 5 is that the "path" to the lake was awful, just swampy. Once you waded thru the muck, it was nice to paddle out of the stream to the lake in the canoe they provided.

    We loved this rustic little cabin. Such a nice, relaxing vacation. The only disappointment was the lake was a walk away and the path was not an easy path to take. A lot of missing boards and slippery because of the rain. Besides that, it was a wonderful week.
