  • Hidden gem


    This place was perfectly secluded for the two of us. Very quiet, tucked away with lake access. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and will be back!!

    The property has great views of the lake from the two decks facing west. The bathrooms are a bit "quirky" but after learning the history of the house shared by the owner, it makes sense. Definetly not a property for young children or the inmobile adult. Had a nice relaxing time....mission accomplished!

  • A relaxing oasis


    My husband and I spent a few days as a minimoon after our wedding on the lake! It was the perfect getaway after the stress of wedding planning. We will definitely be back!

  • Wonderful but could use an additional shower


    Pros: Great location, all as advertised, highly responsive host, beautiful lake, enjoyed the kayaks and swim platform.Cons: Only one full bathroom on the top floor with just a curtain for privacy, so make sure you're all friends. Fairly steep walk to the water but was as advertised and merely requires preplanning to ensure you bring everything to the private beach.Had a great time!
