Overview

Cedar Creek Lake House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 baths, large family room with open kitchen, and covered deck

Read our 5 star reviews. La Vida Loca Cottage offers a relaxing get-a-way and lake front enjoyment. The innovation design of the house is perfect for leisure living as well as providing an elegant venue for entertaining and family fun. Even when the lake is low, we are on open water, which means there is always water in front of the house. If the lake is down there is just more beach area.

There are 2 public boat ramps near by and boat rentals available. Ask for more information and we will provide you with and information sheet on Cedar Creek Lake area activities.

The southern exposure on open water, and wrap around covered deck is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the predominantly southern breeze. A fresh cup of coffee in the morning on the deck overlooking the lake is a must. The cottage offers a large living area with vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, expansive use of glass, a spacious well-appointed kitchen, and large informal dining bar. Outside the approximately 800 square feet of decking creates the perfect outdoor environment where you and lucky guests will enjoy east facing open water views and unlimited entertainment possibilities. In addition, there is a private boathouse with large sun deck.

The interior of the house has been repainted for 2015. We have also added a firepit and more games.

For 2015 we are adding 2 Kayaks that will be available for our guests use. The cost will be an additional $50 for the term of the house rental.

The house is in a clean well maintained neighborhood that is free of mobile homes.

PARTIES FOR PROMS, GRADUATION ETC.. ARE NOT ALLOWED.

About Carol and David Pinkus

We are semi retired and live full-time at Cedar Creek Lake. We chose the lake because of the beauty of the lake, our friends and the great people we have met here.

Carol and David Pinkus purchased this house in 2014

Why Carol and David Pinkus chose Cedar Creek Lake

We named this house 'La Vida Loca' (The crazy life) because there is so much to do. No mater what time of year there are many activities to enjoy around Cedar Creek Lake. What we like most though is sitting and enjoying nature from the porch. There is a great deal of wildlife around the lake-- birds, fish and animals. The lake is a stopping off point for many birds as they migrate for the different seasons. The porch faces Southeast so it is shaded in the afternoon. In the summer there is usually a nice breeze. The sunrises in the mornings can be spectacular.

What makes this house unique

There are two large swings on the back porch, and a sitting area on the dock. The water is good for swimming.

Great home with awesome views!

  • 5 of 5

Our group has been to Cedar Creek a handful of times and this home is by far our favorite. We especially loved the sound system that played music throughout the house and on the patio. The home accommodated our 3 families easily which included teenagers, toddlers and a baby. This will definitely be our "go to" for our next stay.

Delightful and Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Walking in was extremely welcoming. The entire house is aesthetically pleasing. There was complete comfort while relaxing during the days and sleeping at night. The kids love the wrap around porch and fishing off the pier. Perfect for larger families with kids. Extremely pleasing experience. Property owners are very pleasant and accommodating.

Beautiful, Relaxing, Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Booked a stay at La Vida Loca just to get away for a weekend and relax. My first thought as I walked through the door was "Oh this is PERFECT!" The house is beautifully kept and the views are exceptional. The huge porch area is gorgeous and just the ticket for relaxing outside as you look out onto the water. Carol and David had music playing over the speakers when I arrived and it was immediately welcoming and relaxing. Was not ready to leave on checkout day...was a great place to stay for a perfect getaway. I will return, hopefully soon!

Loved by all

  • 5 of 5

Can not find anything to complain about....from the moment we booked until the moment we left the experience and the communication with the owners was wonderful. Upon arriving the house was even better than the pictures, with music playing and snacks to welcome us. We had the max guest and had more than a enough room and space. Kitchen/living room open space was wonderful..and entire house was nicely decorated. During our stay we met both owners on different occasions and they were wonderful people. The house was great and stocked with what we needed, beds/linens were comfy, water was great and was nice that was shallow far enough for the kids to have a great time. Kids enjoyed fishing, swimming, clam collections and lounging in the living room with direct tv and wifi after wearing themselves out. Sunset rise and sunset are a must to enjoy! We would love to come back.

Perfect lake house for a relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have rented vacation homes all across the US, Canada and Mexico, and La Vida Loca Cottage is among the cleanliest (the entire property), best layout, and most comfortable! This home had everything we needed. It has been well-maintained, feels new and is in a nice, friendly neighborhood. Our group included 6 adults and everyone had plenty of space for sleeping, cooking, eating, sitting, and lounging.The porch is truly an awesome place for relaxing!

The owners, David and Carol, were very responsive to our questions when we were seeking a lake house to rent. They provided great directions to the house and once we were there, they had lots of information about the house and services in the area. I believe they genuinely were as eager as we were for us to have a wonderful vacation, to enjoy the lake and their beautiful house. And we did!

We rented a pontoon and Seadoos from Lone Star Marina and had no trouble finding La Vida Loca once we were on the water. It was also a quick drive to First Monday Trade Days in Canton. Another very quick drive to Malakoff for groceries and a few restaurants. Everything we needed for a wonderful vacation.

We feel so fortunate to have found La Vida Loca Cottage. Thank you, David and Carol.
