At Owl's Nest you are able to enjoy the view of the lake on one side of the cottage and woodlands on the other! Although you do see other cottages on the complex, Owl's Nest, is great for a small family getaway. Owl's Nest shares a wall with Wren Roost, as it is a duplex style home. Remember, you can either rent just one cottage or multiple cottages at NettieBay. The cottage plays host to a small kitchen which has all your basic utensils, a picnic table and a 14' private boat. Owl's Nest at Nettie Bay is a great place to bring the family to enjoy your vacation. In addition, there are a couple of adiorrondak chairs to relax in as your roast your marshmallows over your private fire-pit.
Lake Nettie is known as a wonderful fishing lake. Species of fish include: pan fish (blue gill, sun fish, rock bass, black crappie), small mouth bass, large mouth bass, northern pike, perch and the occasional walleye. If fly fishing is your passion, enjoy one of the many nearby streams of fish or the secluded 23 acre bullhead lake full of large mouth bass/large sun fish. Enjoy swimming, kayaking, canoeing, boating on the bay. Also, you can take a nature hike through 2000 private acres and enjoy wildlife viewing. All available to you while staying with us in your lakeside cottage.
