We are Bill and Carla, the couple behind Lakeside Melodies. The first time we saw this place, we fell in love with it. The rolling green hills, beautiful Little Pleasant Lake, the peaceful creek and the three happy ducks living in it. We bought the place and renovated it into a resort, where we would like to stay ourselves. Our goal is to make our guests feel at home. Call us and we can tell you all about Lakeside Melodies and its rich history.

Why 'Melodies'? Bill is a music fanatic. He's been active in music since he was twelve years old. He played drums since high school. Eleven years ago he discovered a peculiar instrument: the hammered dulcimer. He has played nothing else since and already recorded three cd's and performs frequently. In summer he often plays outdoors at Lakeside Melodies, so lots of free concerts!

Bill is an information technology consultant and Carla is a travel journalist, writer of books and magazines. She's Dutch by the way. So for anyone who wants to practice Dutch or is dying to know more about wooden shoes, tulips and windmills, she's the one. Both are sportive people, love canoeing and biking, so ask them for the best routes in the River Country.

Had some problems, but the owners made it right

  • 3 of 5
The bed in the blues cottage was way too hard for me to sleep on. I am pregnant, so I'm sure that contributed. We enjoyed to closeness of a few parks with our young kids. We did have to leave a night early when we found tiny mites on all the cabins pillows. We packed up late at night and went home. I messaged Bill the next morning and he gave us one night's refund and said he'd call an exterminator first thing. We've had better vacations and we've had worse.

Owner's Response: Being so close to nature, we have to keep an eye out for anything. The pillows and bedding were replaced and the cottage exterminated. We haven't had any problems since.

Will be back

  • 5 of 5
Had a wonderful time, guys! Jeff (our 10 year old) caught a big large mouth bass, he still talks about it. And I finally found some time to read books. We'll be back this summer for at least a weekend, but we're trying to come a week. The boys want to go fishing again!!

Nature was great

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I are real nature lovers and love this place, we've been there twice now. It's secluded, really in the middle of nature, between the woods. We rented the Rock 'n Roll cottage (the houses have music themes) and one morning we woke up to deer walking right in front of our window. Owner Bill had told us to watch where the deer drink at the lake every morning, so we've seen deer at least three times that week, but only one time so close to the house. Was a great experience. We rented the boats for birds spotting, saw lots of cranes. Nice thing about Little Pleasant Lake is that it's almost a private lake, hardly any houses on it, other than the resort. And it's no wake, so no engine noise disturbing nature. We had a great time. Must say we visited in May, so quiet times, but it's a small resort so in Summer it's probably still nice without too many people.

Owner's Response: Yes, We have only four cottages and there is one other house on the lake, so the water is always quiet and open.

Beautiful quiet place

  • 5 of 5
This is a good resort for people looking for peace and quiet. We rented two houses for my sister's family and ours. They have canoes and fishing boats, so we spent a lot of time on the water. The beach and the lake are not big, if you're looking for that, you should book a house on an all sports lake. But since we have young children, a small, safe lake is exactly what we need. The houses are at good distance from each other, so you have privacy. The kids liked the grassy fields, played volleyball and badminton. Cutest thing about the place were the pet white ducks, that waddle around. Nice owners, very relaxed people. We'll go back there for sure.
