Trip to the Chick

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay at the house everything was clean and we had everything we needed. this was my 3rd trip to the Chick and have stayed here all three times and plan on coming back and staying here again. Its close to the lake and easily excisable. The owners are very nice folks and looking forward to my next stay.

Perfect Fishing Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This property sets up great for any fishing excursion. Plenty of room for your boat and rig with charging cords available. Very close to the lake and just a short drive to several area boat ramps. It's quiet, comfortable, and has everything you need to unwind and relax. Will definitely be back soon!
