Review 9/5/2012: Our stay at Pretty Lake cottage was fantastic. Not only was the lake and surrounding area peaceful and quiet, the cottage was clean, neat, and very inviting. It has everything necessary to enjoy some relaxing time away from home. We felt very comfortable during our stay and the hosts did a wonderful job to ensure we had a great time. We highly recommend Pretty Lake cottage. We can't wait to go back.

My (Wayne) parents have had a cottage on Pretty Lake since I was a child. We bought our cottage in 1977 and our children have grown up here on weekends until adulthood. We have so many fond memories and are hoping others will have the same experience we have had.

Wayne Niles or Judy Niles purchased this cottage in 2012

This is a recent acquisition from prior neighbors and just listed 8/12. The cottage is on the sandy side of the lake and the sunsets are amazing. There are no neighbors on one side of the cottage, owners occupy cottage on the other side.

Let us know if you are celebrating a special occasion.

This trip was a pilgrimage of my youth having spent a lot of time on Pretty Lake. The cottage was perfect in every way....it was very clean, warm, and inviting. Wayne and Judy were perfect hosts and very accommodating. I would recommend visiting Pretty Lake and in doing so staying with Wayne and Judy. Thank you for the trip down memory lane!

The cottage was exactly as described and more so. Very clean and well maintained. The cottage was ready for us when we arrived with flowers on the table and homemade cookies and chocolates which were delicious. I would definitely recommend this cottage to friends and family. It was our 5th wedding anniversary which we needed some long awaited quiet and alone time and that was exactly what we got. We went fishing and caught 2 good size pike. Thank you Wayne and Judy for a wonderful stay.

Laf-A-Lot was everything you could want for a cottage on the lake. The view was breathtaking. This is a rental I would and will recommend to others. Wayne and Judy are wonderful owners. The use of the paddle boats were great. The home is very clean. Takes me back to my teenage years. Hope to rent this one again next year for a longer stay.

WONDERFUL AND RELAXING

Three sisters and I had a great getaway at the Laf-A-Lot. The cabin was very clean and nothing was overlooked by the owners. Going to bed in scented sheets with the windows open to the lake breeze was dreamy! We had everything we needed for a relaxing few days. We took the rowboat for a couple trips around the lake and floated on rafts. For me, it was like a trip back to my childhood, the smells, the lake, the bluegills, everything. Thank you Wayne and Judy, you have a really nice place and we look forward to renting again next year.

What a wonderful place to spend our sister vacation. This place was a whole lot more than what we ever expected. We had a whole lot of "lafs"! (hope we didn't disturb you) For sure we will be back. Iam one of the sisters and will certainly recommend your place to my friends. WE WILL BE BACK! Thank you again, MaryAnn
P.S. I give your rental a 5 star.
