We combined our vacation time with a special gathering of family and friends at a nearby lake, and this cottage did not disappoint as our home base for R&R. Glistening water and cozy cottage comfort gave us a nice respite from the grind of everyday life. Thanks to a heat wave, we took many dips in the lake with floaties (bought at the local grocery store), The shade trees gave great relief from the sun, and the AC units worked well. We enjoyed sitting on the deck, around the fire pit, and in the hammock. The property was clean, well-maintained, and plenty of dishes and utensils. Having a washer & dryer and a grill was a plus for us! The owners were a true delight to deal with, both via e-mail and in person, and they were readily available if we needed anything. Linens and towels are not provided, but that was not a huge issue for us. The steps to the lake were a little steep, but very manageable when holding onto the rail and not an issue at all. Family & friends in the area visited us at the cottage and were very impressed with the home and the property! When our travels bring us back to the area, we will definitely rent this property again.
