Excellent choice!

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as adversized...spotlessly clean, well equipped, etc. The owner was very easy to work with and returned the security deposit in a timely manner. The convenience to the lake was outstanding, and the view was wonderful. My husband canoed and I sat on the deck and soaked up the ambience. We enjoyed poking around the countryside and learning more about the area. I would definitely return to this cottage.

revisited memories

  • 5 of 5

Overall great week at this camp, weather was great and the house had everything we needed.

My daughter and I visited from Texas and we enjoyed a very relaxing week. As a kid I spent a lot of time at this lake and after about 35 years being gone bringing my daughter back to share memories and make new ones was great, will definitely plan on returning.

The cottage is on a wonderful spot on the lake.

  • 4 of 5

Great rental, especially having a dog, it was so nice to have her with us. The neighbors all had dogs as well which was nice. Wonderful to walk out onto the dock and hop into our kayaks.

I would recommend bringing some of your own cookware, especially if you plan to bake anything. There is ample pantry space. The fridge and stove are apartment size.

If you have a dog and love the lake I would recommend booking here.

View and water access are incredible

  • 4 of 5

Cottage Illusion is a fantastic getaway for a relaxing vacation. Charming and cozy feel. Neighbors are quiet and friendly. Area of lake is quiet, perfect for kayaking and paddle boarding.

Great wildlife viewing: Bald eagle nested nearby, mother duck and he ducklings welcomed us every morning (except the morning the fox was stalking the shoreline), a doe and young buck in velvet came by us one evening.

Five burner outdoor grill was perfect for our gathering and the outdoor deck comfortably seated eight for dinner.

A slice of paradise with an amazing view

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week at Cottage Illusion. It was truly a relaxing week in paradise. It was a very homey and welcoming. The view was spectacular and sitting on the back deck looking out at the lake or up at the stars was a great way to begin or end the day. The cottage had all of the comforts of home, with none of the responsibility of mowing the lawn. I highly recommend this property if you wish to get away from it all and relax. The owners were very helpful and considerate.

Wonderful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband, stepdaughter & I rented this lovely cottage from Ed. My in-laws have been coming to Lake Saint Catherine and staying at the cottages down the street every year. This year was the 50th anniversary for the group, so the location of this rental was within walking distance to our family. We also loved that we were allowed to bring our dogs. They loved swimming in the lake every day. Ed was also very understanding when I had to call him to let him know that one of our dogs went through the screen door. He just asked that we get it fixed before we left. We hope to stay at this great place again next summer.
