This cottage on Swains Lake was perfect for our family and pet beagle. The owners said it was rustic, and we thought it was a step above. The rooms are nice sized, the new windows have wonderful views of the lake, and there were enough amenities to make it comfortable. The owners provided a kayak and brought over a canoe the next day. The neighbors were also very friendly and let us borrow their kayaks and life jackets. We also enjoyed a bonfire at one neighbor's home and a boat ride with another neighbor. Even our dog made 4 friends with the other dogs in the neighborhood. What a great community. Other than a few excursions to the supermarket or to pick up some pizza, we never left the lake. Our only regret is that we could not stay for a full week! Highly recommended.
