Great place for relaxation and fun!!

  • 5 of 5

Every summer my husband and I vacations with our grown daughter, son, and their families. Always on a lake. Over the years we have stayed in many different types of lake houses. We always go to a different house for the fun of a new experience. The last time we rented McNerney Island was in 2011. It is the first lake house we ever returned to. I always remembered the fun the grand kids and the dogs had on the island. Being the only house on the island they had freedom to run and enjoy the outdoors. The lake is beautiful. It's a walk out into the water all around the island. This is great for the safety of the kids and dogs. The TV doesn't get turned on with so many outdoor things to do. We couldn't help but to relax in the sun. I got up by six every morning walked around the island a few times with the dogs. These walks ended by climbing the stairs to the deck on top of the house over looking the lake. The dogs loved it up there as much as I did. You look out and everything is quiet.

It is the perfect fisherman's cabin that has been around for a while. I can image some people would have a problem seeing why I would give it a five star rating. It's for the fun, privacy, relaxation the island offers. The house gives you all you really need. We cooked almost every meal there. What we needed we had.

The five star rating is also for Joe the caretaker and Patrick the owner. Joe helped us with what ever we needed. He was friendly and patient with us. Patrick as well was helpful and answered all our questions.

Awesome experience

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is my new happy place. I loved everything about it. The cabin was cozy and quiet. Yet it had a great pool table and card table. The scenery is beautiful. I was there both in the fall and summer. It is a great place for whatever time of year. I loved sitting outside by the fire at night and having my morning coffee out by the dock. It's a great place to just get away from the hustle and bustle yet it's not too far to go into town. The place was fully stocked we didn't even have to leave. The place has so many rooms it's perfect for a family vacation or just a romantic getaway. Highly recommended for the outdoorsy and boating type. Overall recommended to anyone that enjoys nature, peace, and of course quiet.

Quiet, but never a dull moment

  • 5 of 5

There was definitely something for everyone on the island...From the moment that we got up in the morning, someone was almost always playing pool on the beautiful table in the living room. We saw most of the large lake that the island is located in from the canoes provided, and swam in the fairly clear water. The owner has truly thought of everything that you might want during your vacation away from it all, and the setting is serene. Peaceful and picturesque. I would definitely recommend to others and would stay again myself.

Recreation - Want to fish, go canoeing or water-skiing? McNerney's Island provides whatever kind of boat you will need to enjoy the surrounding lake. For fun or transportation, we have two canoes, two small fishing boats (one with an electric motor, one with gas), a 20 foot party barge (seats 10 people and can pull one tuber), a ski boat and a paddle boat. There is also a shuttle boat to get you back and forth from the mainland to the island.

Fishing in our lake is sure to be a superbly satisfying experience. The lake is approx. 8 miles in length and is well stocked with large-mouth bass, northern pike, calico bass, yellow perch, chain peckerel, trout and small-mouth bass. ******************************************Attention ************************************ Note: Owner does not update calendar on this site.
