Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Bev!

Thanks again for the use of your beautiful cottage - we had another great weekend! It was warm -Thank God for fans!- but the weather worked with us for the race & the much needed rain held off just enough!

Thanks again!! Hope you are well - stay cool!!

Very comfortable-the wood stove made it cozy. Easy to deal with. Jane was great about accommodating my last minute booking. Area was scenic even in early Spring. Would definitely book again.

Vacation Bargain

  • 5 of 5

My son, friend and I were pleasantly surprised on how nice this cottage was. The interior was exactly as the photos showed and the bedrooms were more than adequate. The wood stove kept us warm on those cool nights and dried us out after a rainy day of fishing. Our dinner meals were prepared on what looked like a new BBQ and the fully stocked kitchen with gas range had everything we needed to cook side dishes and breakfast. It was very relaxing to sit out on the screened in porch in the evening and look out over the lake. The dock was a bonus for tying up our canoe after fishing in the morning and not having to carry it back down for late afternoon fishing. If an afforable, very clean cottage set in a secluded, quiet location is what you're looking for then I highly recommend trying this one. I certainly will keep this in mind for future vacations.

Grandkids loved cottage and lake

  • 5 of 5

Bev, We feel so fortunate to have found your cottage to rent at the last minute. We usually go to our nephew's house for our summer vacation but it was not available and we luckily found your cottage available for the week we wanted. My grandchildren ages 11, 13 and 14 voted that they want to go back to Webster Lake for our annual get away. We had a great time and the cottage had everything we needed. The lake is crystal clear and was warm as toast. Thanks for renting to us. Hope to come back next year.

Comfortable and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My daughter loved this place so much she did not want to leave. It is cozy and clean and has everything you need, from dishes to cookware and movies to puzzles. Ww enjoyed the beaches on the lake and just sitting on the screened-in porch watching the sun set in the evenings. There was so much to do in the area that we could not get to everything. The owners are easy to deal with and gracious. We definitely plan to rent from them again.

cozy relaxing cottage

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was like staying at my grandmother's house. It was relaxing, unpretentious, and cozy. It reminded us of a simpler time and that was exactly the kind of vacation experience we wanted our children to have. We swam all day in the serene lake, played board games and read books at night in the screened in porch! It was terrific. My kids enjoyed following a mother loon and her baby around the lake in our boat and were so excited to hear the calls of the loon pair to each other.
