Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time. It was a little crowded our first 2 days up there, but then it settled down and we had a great stay. The cottage is beautiful and the beach is perfect for our children.

Family Oriented!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the cottage for a total of 6 nights this past July. My husband, myself and our 2 children (ages 7 & 8) had a fabulous time! The neighbors were so welcoming and even invited us for dinner! The cottage was decorated very modern, but with a cottage feel. It was so open and there was so much room for all of us to spread out. The sunsets were priceless and the beach was so clean for the kids to play on. Our family enjoyed it so much that my son and the neighbors are now connected on FaceTime to keep in touch! We will definitely be renting it again in the future!

The lake place

  • 4 of 5

We had a great family vacation. The lake was beautiful and the house was more than comfortable. We would suggest to the owners that they do make it clear to renters that this is a duplex not a single family dwelling. It is part of a mini-resort and would have been quite crowded if all the other buildings on the property had been occupied while we were there. Having said that the neighbors that we did meet were very nice and easy to visit with.

Owner's Response: In reality only a few people rent at the complex. As well I am uncertain if you can find a better beach in the area. I don't believe anyone has ever had an issue. The neighbors, when up there are the nicest people around. This is truly the best family rental in the area.

Great Time at a Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We had a great short weekend at the Pardo cottage. It is just like the pictures, although they really don't show how nice it really is. The beach was real nice, and the kids had a great time swimming, playing in the sand, snorkeling in the water, and fishing off the dock. The weather was windy the first two days so the lake was choppy, but the last two it was amazing and like glass.

We caught a nice 4lb small mouth off the end of the dock! The neighbors were nice and very welcoming.

The only thing that was a bit of a surprise is that the property is more of a town house then a cottage, as it is shared with an identical home in the same building. It was not as secluded as we hoped, but that wasn't a huge issue in the end.
