Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for such a positive review. The Kirk family is an example of the wonderful people that have stayed at our cottage. We thoroughly enjoyed watching them as they interacted as a family. The boys were extremely respectful and were a pleasure to watch them play in the water. We have a lot of couples as guests so having the boys was an added pleasure. We would certainly welcome them back.

Owners were very nice. The house was well stocked and warm and cozy. Ceiling fans in each room kept the house nice and cool and fireplace kept the cold nights away. Would stay again.

Great family getaway!!!!

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible trip! Cookie and Tom were the perfect hosts and treated us like family. The cabin was beautifully decorated and spotless! Everything you needed was supplied for you from linens, towels, gas grill, kayaks, even a bar of soap! Phenominal location close to many different activities. The kids spent HOURS fishing, swimming from the floating dock, kayaking and sitting by the campfire. This is BY FAR one of our favorite family vacations!! Thanks again for EVERYTHING!!! The boys gave this vacation 5 STARS!!!
