My husband and I stayed here for a week in July. The cottage is cozy, the deck has a beautiful view! We were unwilling to float in the lake- too much duck waste. I’d suggest bringing games and lots of things to do. We couldn’t get the TV to work at all. Very nice, quiet, restful vacation!
Thank you taking the time to review us. I'm sorry you didn't feel we received a 5 star rating. If you had an issue with the TV, I wish you would have reached out, I live 15 minutes away and could have come out to fix it or walked you through the issue. We stayed their recently and had no issues. Unfortunately I can't control the duck waste but I am glad that you had a restful vacation.
Cozy and comfortable!
Cozy and clean! The beds were very comfortable with nice linens! The view from the deck was beautiful. The children had a fantastic time playing in the sandy shallow water. You can see the fish, the water is so clear. Marta was most helpful and accommodating about the property and the area. Definitely would stay there again!
Charming cottage with a spectacular view!
Although my family and I have spent years fishing at Duck Lake, this is the first time we have rented a cottage on the lake. We had a really great time. "Quaint" is a wonderful way to describe this little slice of heaven. The deck is super spacious with tons of seating available. The dock is in very good condition, and we were able to tie two boats up to it with plenty of space. The neighbors are incredibly nice people and we really enjoyed meeting them. You have to ask them to tell you the story about the black rabbits! It is a real treat when you see them hopping around. My husband got up one morning and even spotted TWO bald eagles! Lastly, the owners were very good to work with. Although it rain a good portion of our week, we still had great luck fishing, and we enjoyed our time at this cottage.
We are so glad you enjoyed your week. Please come visit us again!!
Nice place to stay at the Lake
Place was just right for us. Nice Deck and all the Cabin amenities were just fine!
Worked great for our family.
The house is adorable. Some would consider small but our family of 6 is used to small and we interact more when we can't go hideaway. One of our adult children did sleep in the couch so I would call this a 5 adult sleeper but one could fit more younger kids upstairs. Overall, being on the water in a cute community and not too far from other things was exactly what our family needed.
Fun Family Time At Duck Lake
We enjoyed ourselves at this quaint Duck Lake cottage. The cottage was clean and well maintained. Five people were plenty here as it is small, but it met our needs. Wifi was missed, but it was nice at the same time not to have to be "connected" and relaxation and conversation took its place. As long as showers are spaced out, then every guest will have hot/warm water!! Marta was attentive to our questions, concerns, and requests which we greatly appreciated. The deck was great and was the draw for our family. We relaxed, ate meals, played games, laughed and made memories on that deck. The lake is shallow next to the dock which would be great for small children to play and have fun. If your family is looking for a relaxing quaint get away this cottage is for you!!
