Serene and well-equipped

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Overflow for a recent girls weekend retreat and could not have been happier with our stay! The house is well equipped and adorable, and the surrounding area—especially the lake—was so peaceful and serene. Highly recommended for some old fashioned R&R!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you all enjoyed yourselves at the cottage. The weather didn't start out so well but it ended up beautifully. I am envious of your retreat. I have wanted to do that with my friends and just haven't made it there yet. Hopefully, you will enjoy many more of these weekends with each other! And, thank you for my rock! It will stay at the Overflow to remind me of your visit. Maureen

Cute, cozy cabin

  • 4 of 5

What a cute little quiet cabin in a community on a small lake. Six adults and two babies stayed. Plenty of beds, towels, blankets and all we needed for. Our short time away. The owners were very responsive and welcoming. My only criticism would be that the water heater was set a little high!

The Overflow is as quiet and peaceful as advertised.

  • 5 of 5

Maureen thought of everything to make our stay memorable. The cottage is comfortable and well equipped. We were able to cook and sleep just as well as at home. A mink joined us for coffee by the water in the mornings. Each day we headed out with our kayaks to try a different local water adventure. When we returned, we were greeted by the sweet touches left for us by Maureen: tasteful nightlights, a complimentary bottle of wine, comfortable furniture, scented towels, and a hot shower. The beds are cozy and wonderfully comfortable.

I hope to return. I think fall foliage would be lovely here.
