I have been coming up to Sugar Springs since my parents purchased the property in 1976. I road through the lake in a 4 wheel jeep before it was filled with water. I used to own a remodeling business and now my hobby is to continually improve the property for my family and our guests.

Kent Filsinger purchased this cottage in 1976

I have spent 30 years improving the cottage to make your stay relaxing and memorable. Has all the amenities of a house but has the feel of a cottage with lots of natural wood and fishing and boating decor.

Almost every room has a view of the water. The gardens have been a long term on going love affair. Sitting on the garden swing or hammock totally relaxes me. Seeing the sunrise from the master bedroom always puts me in the right state of mind to start the day.

Excellent cottage!! Great for kids of all ages.

  • 5 of 5
Excellent cottage. Had almost everything you needed so you didn't have to pack the entire house. Lake front was perfect for little kids playing in the sand and water. Bonfires were awesome!! We look for places every year and this was by far the best. Upstairs bedrooms were cool and quiet and you heard minimal noise from downstairs. Great location for jogging and biking.
The only downfall.....we wanted to rent a boat for the week and everyone was booked when we called the day we arrived. (Book in advance!!)

Owner's Response: Thank you for the vey nice review. We try to make your packing as light as possible. This year we purchased a infant high chair and a air pump to blow up water toys. We listen to our guests and we have had many requests for boat rentals so we are planning on having a pontoon boat available for rental starting next year. Kent

A beautiful location for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and 2 boys (ages 2.5 & 4.5), along with my parents, had an awesome time at the barn! It is located on a quiet lake and has a great amount of privacy. Our boys loved playing in the yard and in the sand everyday...the water was perfect for them (both temperature and depth). They also went fishing right off the dock and could see all the fish in the water. You cannot beat the view of the lake; it is breathtaking!

The house is nice. It has a great master bedroom with an amazing view of the sunrise over the lake. It seemed pretty clean and we'll maintained. Honestly, we spend so much more time outside than inside because of the view and the perfect weather!

Kent was great to talk to and was very knowledgeable of the area. Thank you again for sharing your lake house with us. We made some great family memories and we certainly hope to return again next summer!!!

Looking Forward to Next Visit

  • 5 of 5
This is an exceptional location and home. The decks,lawn,beach and fire pit were used every day. The view even from inside is lovely from dawn to dusk. We all fished, barbequed, boated, watched the wildlife through binoculars and also right up close. Inside there's a great game room, pool tournaments went on every day. Music, board games,etc. And the house has comfortable new beds in every bedroom, much to everyone's delight. We've rented many homes for vacations and this is not usually the case. The shower pressure is terrific and there's plenty of hot water and towels. This is a house we plan on returning to soon and often.

Owner's Response: The most rewarding part of being an innkeeper is when a guest enjoys their stay enough to want to return. Thank you for the kind review.

Great cottage, great experience.

  • 5 of 5
Our family rented “The Barn” for a week in August & had a wonderful time! It was large enough to accommodate all of us, 7 adults and 1 toddler without feeling crowded at all. It also had a very homey Up North feel to it which we really liked.

The lake itself is very peaceful and large enough that it never gets too crowded with boats either. We enjoyed the good fishing and kayaking it had to offer as well.

The property has a nice sandy beach area which was perfect for our grandson. The lawn had many nice areas to enjoy with 2 decks and even an outdoor wooden swing.

We highly recommend this property to people of all ages. It’s the perfect place for family fun and relaxation!
