  • Beautiful labor day getaway


    Perfect lake getaway. Beautiful house with almost everything we needed. Loved the lakefront and dock with use of kayaks. Home was clean inviting. Didnt even get to use the downstairs which was huge. As others have stated, there are a lot of stairs/steps to get down to the lake (over 90) but it is worth it for that view!

    Items that could be better:

    No grill brush to clean grill and they could use some grill tools.

    Weird hop/step to get onto dock.

  • Perfect!


    Oh, nice modern cabin on the lake with plenty of room. Thoroughly enjoyed the boat dock and the kayaks that came with the rental. There was even a jet ski slip for our JetSki. Will definitely be back next year!

  • Excellent stay


    This was a perfect location for our family! The dock was very large to accommodate space for a boat, floats, and relaxing. Everyone enjoyed the kayaks and paddle boat that were provided by the host. The house is located in a quiet cove without much traffic. The house was very clean and decor was cute. The linens/soap/towels provided were a nice touch. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to cook meals with. The host was very responsive and handled any issues that came up very quickly. My only suggestion would be to wear shoes on the dock because of splinters but this is to be expected on a lake dock. The view is amazing. I read on several reviews about the steep gravel driveway and there’s not much that can be done. The bottom and top are more flat and we were able to fit cars in a way it still felt safe. Would definitely recommend this cabin and would stay here again!

  • Breathtaking!


    The cabin was beautiful and what a spectacular view! The paddle boat was fun. You get a work out with the stairs but so worth it. Had the most wonderful weekend! Totally worth the money.
