Breath taking views

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing, peaceful getaway. The cottage was just as pictured, cozy and clean. Fishing on the private pier was good. We were there 2 days and brought back more than 30 fish... and I was doing more sightseeing than fishing. The location was good, we drove in to Shreveport in less than 30 min. The local people in Oil City were all very friendly. This property is so quaint and tranquil. If you're looking to escape the city life and take in some nature, it doesn't get much better than this. I'll never forget all the beautiful cypress trees. I slept very well in the Queen bed and there was plenty of space for the 2 of us. The shower pressure was good and the gift basket was filled with goodies. I just can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay.

Will not be back

  • 2 of 5

Not at all how the website made it out to be. Pictures are well outdated. I'm sure a few years back it was a very nice place. Everything outside is in need of tender loving care. The Piet is need of a lot of restoration. Lots of rotten timber throughout. Lots of somekind of poop on one section of pier. Not all lights are working on pier. Could not even use outdoor tv area due to how unclean area was. The boat house is something I don't understand. Very outdated an full of cobwebs and spiders. Very awkward and problematic in getting your boat in or out. The cottage was nice on the inside only had problems with red wasp inside the cottage. Did not see caretakers at all onsite to ansewer any questions. Maybe this is due to for sale singns around property.

Cottage Stay

  • 3 of 5

We spent 2 nights and days here for our 35th wedding anniversary. This little cottage was clean and neat as a pin and surrounded by huge beautiful cypress trees. The deck/pier was truly impressive in size and levels. Many square feet and at any time of day there was shade to be found somewhere on it. It offered several levels with a functional outdoor kitchen. We took a boat and the on site boat house was very handy. However, there were some less than ideal issues.

The a/c was only partly functional and on our first day with full sun (in July) it didn't keep the cottage comfortably cool. Next day was mostly cloudy and it did an acceptable if not ideal job with both fans going. The deck and outdoor kitchen could have used a good cleaning. I understand they are outdoors but an occasional blowing/sweeping and wiping down would have made our stay more enjoyable. There was a good amount of animal (I suspect raccoon) feces on the deck giving the appearance that it had been several days since any removal had occurred. All in all it was an OK stay which a bit of maintenance could have made very pleasurable.

Pictures Don't Do This Place Justice

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I had a wonderful time. Accomodations in the cottage are very comfortable, welcoming and clean. The hosts put a lot of thought into what a visitor would want or need. And the welcome basket of treats and snacks is beyond any other we have ever seen. Nice having a kitchenette in the cabin; and we also used the outdoor kitchen one morning for breakfast. Being able to keep our boat in a boat house was a huge plus... one night a thunderstorm rolled through and we were not concerned at all. You have to see this multi-level deck to believe it. It's simply amazing, and the views of the sunsets were spendid. After going out fishing, it was a real treat to relax overlooking the water. This is a one-of-a-kind rental on a one-of-a-kind lake. If you're thinking about it... all I can say is don't hesitate to book it. You won't be dissapointed.
