PERFECT LAKE FRONT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5

Quaint cottage was just as pictured. Clean, cozy, and had everything we could possibly need (both indoors and out). We had a fantastic relaxing long weekend on the quiet lake, with the convenience of a supermarket and town 5 minute drive away. Would love to come back!

Peaceful, cozy, relaxing

  • 4 of 5

A very cute house on a very cute lake. So mellow, no noise or crowds. The water was lovely, but we were content sitting in the adirondack chairs looking at the lake. The screened in porch and the dock are lovely, and we so appreciated having use of the kayak and the little motor boat. The little town is close by and has all the basic things you might need- groceries, liquor store, friendly diner.

Amazing Lake Getaway!

  • 4 of 5

My wife, daughter and I stayed at the cottage while visiting friends and family. The boat and kayak were a great addition! I mostly used the oars to propel the boat opposed to using the electric motor. Just a preference. I had to borrow a friends wrench to take the boat battery out to charge it. The seating by the lake was perfect! Caught and released a nice largemouth bass off of the dock as well! Great place in a wonderful location. We would definitely stay there again. Thanks Craig!

Amazing lakeside location

  • 5 of 5

I had such a great weekend with my husband and 3 year old at this lake house. It is right on the lake and the view from the house is gorgeous. We took out the kayak every day! Didn't have the nerve to try the boat, but it was totally accessible. The kitchen was stocked with supplies, linens provided, everything we needed. We also had access to a private community beach on the lake. I would definitely stay here again.
