Relaxing or Fishing, This is the Place

Thank you to our host Sandy and Tim who were both very kind, helpful and generous with their time to offer guidance and recommendations for places to see as well as things to do.
We enjoyed our week (7/30-8/6/2011) at the cottage with our two daughters, ages 16 and 21. My 16 year old has already announced that she wants two weeks next year.
The cottage is a lovely place surrounded with tall pines and on the shores of Markee Lake. The location is a very peaceful relaxing location with the occasional call of the loons.
The living room has about 14 screened in windows which allows nice ventilation and also allows the sounds of nature to visit you. A powerful ceiling fan also does a great job bouncing air down the gabled pine ceiling.
I found the room a great location for napping and searching the web. Tim had recently added a window air conditioner to the living room if temps warranted, but we were fine without it.
If you are into fishing, this lake offers the opportunity for large fish. We caught many pike and large bass. Our catch included a 32 inch Northern Pike. The fish were released back to the lake for you to catch on your visit. The week we were there, we found success using red crawfish colored Wigglewart crank bait made by Storm.
The cabin itself is well equipped. I like my internet and my TV at night and this cottage has high speed internet and DIRECTV. In the kitchen, it has the little extras that some rentals lack, such a pizza pans, cutters, etc. If you want a nightly fire, Tim has a covered reserve of aged firewood cut and stacked.
Sleeping: The bed in the bedroom was very comfy. I know the photo of the bedroom might make the room look cramped but actually, that is not the case. There is plenty of room on each side of the bed. In the living room, you will find a full sized day bed. Underneath that day bed is an equal sized flat rollout bed already made up. In addition, there are two couches, a rocker and a recline chair with footstool, in the living room for sitting and napping.
You cannot go wrong in selecting this cabin. I would recommend bringing some seat cushions for the boat, but other than that, you are set for a relaxing and wonderfully located vacation with this rental.
Thank you again Tim and Sandy.
