Overview

About the property

Lakefront Japanese Influenced Cabin - Nestled in Natural Setting

Contemplative and peaceful escape from the "real world" right on a small idyllic pond. Ideal for a couples escape or quiet family getaway. Leave your cell phone and other electronics behind and enjoy this wonderfully appointed cottage with Japanese influences. Available beginning Memorial Day for only a minimum of a two night stay. Firepit, canoe and kayak available. Will sleep 4 but not ideal for young children. Futons and woven floor mats, interesting artwork and gorgeous lakefront setting make this a place you will want to return to again. Flexible check in/out, truly a wonderful place of peace. Come to write, paint, contemplate nature, renew your vows or just enjoy the beauty of the lake, trees, wildlife and discover your inner peace at Stone Turtle House.

Tranquil retreat, both indoors and out

  • 4 of 5

Lovely cottage, exactly as described and photographed.

Quite easy to locate and ample directions provided by April, as well.

Cozy, NOT cramped with plenty of necessities for cooking, etc.and terrific use of space; appealing aesthetic...

Water pressure is capricious , including unpredictable bursts of noise and changes, BUT , it is sufficient for any needs and the shower is perfect!

The shelves of reading material are fantastic.

Delighted that April provides socks especially just for indoors -- so helpful!

Easy access to many scenic routes, e.g. for hiking, leaf-peeping, etc. Enjoyed canoeing all around the pond with my adult daughter.

Neighbors quiet and pleasant.

The futons ( mat style, not mattress style ) may be an obstacle for folks not used to such, but we (4) were fine.

Would happily return 😊

Peaceful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't have been happier with our experience here. Plenty of space for me and my grown children. The pond is quiet and peaceful, the home decorated with lovely Japanese collections. April and Steve could not have been more gracious and helpful. Everything went smoothly and we would definitely stay here again.

Everything we needed was available. Cabin was very organized and pleasant. So peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful spot. Easy to get to. Sun is on the dock in am until 1:30 ish. Cabin was also peaceful. Sound carries between loft and downstairs sleeping if that matters for you although it was fine for us. Water in the house was spurts and bursts at time so we definitely tried to conserve. Otherwise all great

Very quaint and cozy house right on the lake.

  • 4 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our weekend stay at this lake house. April the owner was very quick to reply to any pre-trip questions and had a book with all the info you would need about the house out for us upon arrival.

Place has great views of the lake and is peaceful and serene. Good for unwinding and getting away from your phone and Internet, especially since there is no wi-fi.

Favorite part was the fire pit and the proximity to the lake.
