The lake house was very clean and had many small extras that I was not expecting. The owners had lots of towels for our use and just about every kitchen utensil and many dishes. Soap was provided at all the sinks and the large shed by the pool had many floating devices and pool toys. The pool and hot tub were a huge hit with our family. A small fire pit in the yard was great for making smores with the kids. We had beautiful weather and were able to enjoy the beach every day. The beach is a very short walk from the house. The nearby stream ends on the beach which is great fun for kids. My kids spent time catching tadpoles, small frogs, and attempting to catch small fish which were much too fast. When you enter the water, the beach is a bit rocky so pack your beach shoes. I have a family of 5 and this was a great place for a family vacation. Please be aware though that only the two bedrooms upstairs are air conditioned. My teenage son got warm sleeping in the basement and ended up sleeping on my bedroom floor a few nights (it was 95 out those days though). Overall, I would recommend the lake house for a relaxing family vacation.
We had a wonderful time at this well-appointed cottage that was even better than described! With a pool, hot tub, and private beach at our disposal the kids were always happy and the adults had time to relax. Necessities like grocery, pharmacy are just down the road but you feel miles away at the cottage. The private beach is a parent's dream with a little stream perfect for small children to play in. The cottage has everything you need to enjoy your stay and is super clean and well kept. St. Joseph is just down the road with plenty of other activities to do, but we just stayed put and enjoyed the relaxing cottage. Owner is available and helpful. Would recommend to anyone.
