  • Great place to stay.


    The house was very clean, linens provided, and the kitchen has everything you need. There was plenty of space, we had 5 adults and 1 small dog. We put our boat in at Little Milligan, it was a short distance to the house. The house has a nice dock. The steps down to the dock are a little challenging, but my 83 year old parents made the trip several times a day. This was our 2nd stay in this home and we look forward to next year.

    Brides family stayed at this cabin for wedding at Blue Mountanya (just down road). House was very comfy and welcoming. Beds were comfortable. Family enjoyed hot tub and pool table. Too busy to enjoy lake, but admired a walk on lake and sit on double deck boat and enjoyed peace and quiet. Excellent place to stay!!!!

    The photos do not give this place justice, it's amazing, from the inside to the out.
