  • Beautiful views, comfy cottage


    Lake house was spotless, cozy and offered every amenity we could have asked for - well equipped kitchen to make our own meals, upper and lower decks, one with a fire pit, so we could literally stay outside all day and enjoy the surroundings. There’s a pool table downstairs and comfy couches to curl up with a good book. We didn’t use the kayaks only because life jackets in our size weren’t available, they only had size Large. The only draw back (and honestly, we run into this every time we rent an individual vacation home) is that the highly fragranced detergent everything is laundered in really bothers our allergies and it permeates everything we bring with us. It would be so much nicer if fragrance free detergents and cleaners were used. I hope more hosts will consider switching to fragrance free detergent.

  • Awesome View.


    This place was amazing! The view in the morning was fabulous!! Check in was flawless, the house was clean and well taken care of. The game room down stairs was a great bonus. Although the weather was hot the stay was fantastic. The new dock was a great addition. I brought my little 5 hp boat and was able to tie it up at the dock. the lake was a great place to keep cool. The host was very approachable and checked in with us to make sure there were no issues. The only issue we had, (it really wasn't) was with four women we ran out of Toilet paper. (not a big deal we stopped at a quick stop nearby and just got some).Definitely would stay here again.

    The Strong/Sawyer family would like to thank you all for your hospitality. Our stay has been awesome! The sunrise experience was something that we will remember for the rest of our lives. That is a memorable and heartfelt moment to be part of such a life-changing moment. We will cherish it forever. Spectacular view!

    Well stocked kitchen and very clean!
