Best time of my life

  • 5 of 5

This is our familys second time staying at the cottage and again we absolutely loved it. The kitchen is well stocked with every possible amenity you will need. The beach theme decor is absolutely beautiful, and the bedrooms are very cozy. Already can't wait to plan our next vacation here. The lake is Sandy and clean and even though weather wasn't the best this time around we spent every moment possible in the water. We went to the grass river natural area and walked the trails, such a beautiful place to visit!

Another Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year staying at the Lake and Trails Lodge and it could not have been any better! We were fortunate to have beautiful sunny days and spent every possible minute down by the lake using the paddle boards, kayaks, swimming and just lounging in SUPER clean Starvation Lake.

Tammy is a friendly and lovely host. It is clear that she takes a lot of pride in her beautiful cottage and in every little detail.

We can't wait to return next year!

Second year visiting!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place so much, we had to come back! It is amazing! The water is one of the cleanest lakes I have ever seen. The deck by the water is very private and relaxing. Me, my husband and two dogs had a great time:) I would definitely recommend!

Beautiful property that has it all!

  • 5 of 5

This home had an amazing view of the lake from more than one level. The house was clean and even better than the pictures. It was everything we expected and more. The house was supplied with everything that we needed plus some! They didn't miss a beat with the amenities. The lake water was really clean and clear. The sand was also clean and very soft. It was a very nice and peaceful area. Very little traffic in the water which made the water nice and calm. The bedrooms and bathroom were smaller, but that wasn't an issue for my family of 6 because we were always outside except to sleep. That being said the beds, pillows and bedding were very comfortable too. I would definitely stay here again!

Best family vacation in a long time

  • 5 of 5

Our family visited this beautiful home from 8/27-8/31/16. My parents were supposed to come with us, but had something come up at the last minute and were unable to come along, so it was just our little family of 4. We had an AMAZING vacation & wished it could have been longer! We felt so at home. It was very clean & cozy, also decorated so nice. Our girls especially enjoyed the paddle board & kayaks, and playing with the little minnows on the edge of the sandy bottom crystal clear waterfront. We enjoyed the many rafts and toys provided in the "party house" down by the waterfront, and were especially grateful for the fridge which we could store our beverages in while we enjoyed relaxing down by the water. The peaceful mornings on the beautiful deck overlooking the gorgeous lake, with loons calling in the background was just what we needed. We were also very happy to bring our little...big... fur-baby (2 yr old golden lab) with us on this vacation & she had just as much fun splashing around in the water as we did. My husband was pretty excited to have caught a trout one evening when venturing out in the middle of the lake. We made wonderful memories & had the best family vacation in a long time. Owner was excellent to work with, and accommodations were above & beyond. We would highly recommend this rental for a small family just wanting to get away from it all for a while. We would love to be able to come back again for sure!

Peaceful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful lake that was crystal clear with a sandy bottom! All the amenities for a fun time at a small lake, including kayaks, paddle boat, floats and more! Cottage was so cute and the multiple decks were well maintained!
