    We had a terrific stay. The cabin was clean, well-stocked and lovely. The privacy on the island was exactly what we hoped for. There is noise from the bar across the lake on Fridays and Saturdays but otherwise it is quite peaceful. The air conditioning was needed and worked very well. The only drawback was the size of the dock. We brought a 21' ski boat and the dock where you unload was way too small for the boat. Thankfully we were able to unload all our stuff using a neighbor's dock. Kevin was very quick to respond and even made a trip out on a Sunday afternoon to replenish the propane for the grill. We all had a great time and we will probably return in the future. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

    Truly, amazing gem! If you want to be isolated you can stay on the island and adventure around. You will encounter great wildlife, including nesting Eagles to snapping turtles, deer, gorgeous various birds, geese & beyond! Then venture out around the island on kayak or go out onto the lake if you have your own boat. Nothing involved in this getaway was a disappointment, it exceeded our expectations! The home itself is so well done & cared for. The craftsmanship of the log home is top notch (pun intended). The local decor in the cabin & fun antiques are neat to look at as well. The outdoor shower was uniquely refreshing & a great concept! The owners are amazing at keeping in touch & went above & beyond to reachout when bad weather was in the area. Overall, this was an amazing find & close to so many other local places... great food, fun & more!

  • Wonderful Stay!


    We couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to stay! Everything was wonderful from the accommodations, cleanliness, communication with Kevin (the owner), and the property. The lake views were amazing, the kids had a great time fishing and kayaking, we saw deer and other wildlife on the trails, and enjoyed watching the bald eagles soar above the property. We look forward to when we can stay here again!

  • Wonderful property with excellent communication!


    My family (wife & three boys) stayed at this property and although we came into the stay with high expectations, we were still blown away. Kevin reached out ahead of time and provided detailed instructions and then went above and beyond in my opinion in getting us settled. We brought our own boat and there is a 1/2 mile distance between the private parking and the boat launch. I usually take on both roles of launching the boat and parking the vehicle. Kevin met us at the boat launch, followed me to the private parking and then brought me back to the boat! During this time he talked about the property's history along with recommendations for boating and getting around the area. Kevin then met us at the island and introduced us to all of the amenities offered. We didn't realize that kayaks and a canoe were also provided and discovered during our stay that our youngest absolutely LOVED kayaking! In summary, the pictures do not do this properly justice and expect a wonderful time. I'd like to thank Kevin once again for the opportunity to stay at his property and wouldn't think twice about returning if the opportunity ever arose!If you're on the fence, book it!
