  • Amazing Ambiance Affected by Ants


    The space was beautiful with a private dock, quiet but close enough to experience the seclusion we sought. The issue we had was the ant issue on the kitchen counter. We couldn't put ANYTHING on it because they were everywhere. We contacted the property manager and they told us to use soap, which we did, but it was still an inconvenience we wish we would have known about beforehand.

  • The Foreign Visitors


    Overall we enjoyed our stay. Concern that the address is not evident (faded numbers on an obscure tiny sign at the end of a lane that is right next to a paved lane). We should have taken the gravel. No address numbers on the house. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen well stocked with dishes and pans, and the shower quite adequate.

    It would have been helpful to have a book or handout that tells where the thermostat is located and how to work it. Would have spent time on the deck except the area had not been cleaned or swept off. It was not welcoming. There was also a broken spindle on the back deck. That is a concern had we had our three year old with us. Also there was a jar of something left in the refrigerator door that we found when placing our items inside. We left it there.

    Loved the interior decor and added touches to make it homey. Very secluded and so pleasantly quiet, even with the few trains that travel along the edge of the property. That did not bother us.

    We spent time on the dock watching fishermen, birds, and some busy insects on the water's surface. We would love to stay here again, but would have appreciated an effort to show that they were glad we had chosen their lovely location.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Jo, thanks for letting us know about your stay. We followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they would like to share the following: -We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay at our property.
    -We understand your concern regarding the spindles, and we want to assure you that we take this issue seriously. Spindles can occasionally sustain damage, and we are committed to addressing this promptly to maintain the safety and aesthetics of our property.
    -Additionally, the back deck overlooking the lake may be subject to windy conditions and seasonal leaves in the Fall, which can sometimes lead to a messy appearance. However, these natural elements also contribute to the beauty of the surroundings and the picturesque view. We hope you appreciate the unique charm that these features bring to our property.
    We would be thrilled to welcome you back for another stay in the future.

  • Decent stay


    Lots of stairs. So if you have below the waist joint problems or replacements, it’s a tricky place to stay. They have lots of utensils to use and a big gathering area around the tv. Dock is great - be careful with the stairs to that. The property is right by train tracks. The train passes by every few hours day and night. Fire pit area was perfect for our group!

  • Nice getaway


    We booked this cabin for a nice family getaway over Super Bowl weekend. The weather was perfect and we did some ice fishing on nearby Friendship Lake. Some pros and cons about the cabin…Cons-The train comes by much more frequently than “rarely” as it states in the posting at all hours of the day and night: We didn’t mind it too much, but our dogs struggled to adjust to it at the beginning.-The couch was not very comfortable and was actually broken on one side (missing a leg or 2) and sank in the middle-The toilet runs after flushing if you don’t jiggle the handle. The shower in the bathroom is also very dark. -Not the best lighting in the cabin when it’s dark outside.Pros-Beautiful views!-Plenty of firewood for bonfires -Lots of kitchen utensils and necessities -The room off the entrance downstairs is perfect for loading/unloading -Pet friendlyOverall, nice property!
