Janet and Butch were great hosts and went out of their way to make sure our stay was perfect! The cottage is adorable and complete with everything you need. The views are amazing and there are a few hidden gems for local dining not too far away.

Wonderful cottage in an ideal setting.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was in perfect order, clean, well-equipped and really comfortable. Best part was the beach, lake and sunsets. And hosts Butch and Janet are warm and sweet. Just like their breakfast pancakes!

Just What the Doctor Ordered

  • 5 of 5

I'm recovering from surgery that I had in March and wanted to get away to a peaceful place for a few days. My wife and I decided to stay at "Shore Thing" Cottage after reading the good reviews. I can honestly say that it exceeded all of our expectations. Butch and Janet have thought of everything and we took more stuff than we needed to. The cottage is quite comfortable and everything is nice and very well maintained.

The quiet peacefulness is just what we both needed and we plan to go back again next year. Perhaps I'll do some fishing next time.

Our stay at Shore Thing Cottage was fantastic! The little cabin was perfect for 4 old friends meeting up from St. Louis and Bennington, VT. We absolutely loved the screen porch. We were out there every morning eating breakfast and every evening to play scrabble. Butch and Janet were wonderful hosts, ready to help with a car repair recommendation when my muffler fell off and with the loan of bikes and kayaks. We enjoyed dinner under the stars almost every night, watching the sunset and then shooting stars. A fire on the beach was one of my favorite things. Along with kayaking and biking across the causeway twice! The cozy cabin was perfect for us. We hope to be back soon!

This was our third summer at Butch and Janet's cottage and again, just perfect! They are just the most wonderful people and we so enjoy seeing them each summer! They have the cottage spotless when we arrive and we try to do our best in matching that when we leave. Everything you would need is provided (except food of course) to make it a comfortable stay. Meals on the deck overlooking the lake just can't be beat and, those sunsets .... not enough words to say just how magical they are! We look forward to seeing them again next in 50 weeks!! Just perfect!
