Nice Peaceful Location/Not as Clean as indicated

  • 3 of 5
We enjoyed a relaxing long Labor Day weekend here. There were a lot of toys for the kids for the beach and the house was a nice size, as were the beds and the kitchen. I was pretty disappointed though that the house was not as clean as mentioned in other reviews...There were cobwebs all over the ceiling in the living room, the carpet and floors were dirty. I know this because our socks were filthy after only being there for a couple of hours. Also, my son's book slid under the kitchen table and there was dirt/sand under the table. I was also disappointed to find that the sliding screen door was broken (my husband fixed it as best he could), and the people who were there before us must have had a dog or dogs, because there were dog nose markings all over the sliding glass door (which I cleaned). The house also smelled very strongly of bug spray and dog when we arrived. The stairs to beach are very dangerous. There is no rail to hold onto and there are a lot of uneven steps. I have a 3 and a 6 year old so this stressed me out each time we went to the beach and when we left. I am giving this an average review because we did like the location, and the beach. The kids played in the water all day. Even in the rain. The view was beautiful and they had a lot of supplies there such as many towels, kitchen tools, and plenty of room to move around.

Owner's Response: Shannon, thank you for letting us know that the carpet was in need of care. As you mentioned we do have a very sandy beach and if previous renters did not rinse their feet it can cause the sand to get in the carpet. We are in the process of getting that cleaned. This is our first year renting and with it being rented all summer we knew that their would be some wear and tear hence the screen which is also being replaced so we truly appreciate your review. With that being said we hope that you enjoyed yourself and will return in future.

Relaxing vacation cottage

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful, relaxing vacation - the kids and the dog loved the sandy beach & the shallow water right outside the cottage. The cottage was comfortable and fully stocked with linens, towels and even paper plates and cups to make our stay less stressful. We had a lot of fun taking the canoe around the lake and "fishing" off the dock with our two year old and his new fishing pole (with a plastic hook and fish) although we did hear that the lake also is stocked for those that would want to fish for real. Evenings were relaxing with our bonfires and card games in the cozy family room. We definitely enjoyed our stay and will keep in mind for future family vacations.

Amazing cottage!

  • 5 of 5
My family (and family dog) stayed at the cottage for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. Had I known about all the amenities that the owners provided, I could have packed half as much! All you need are clothes and food and you are set! Laundry detergent, beach toys, firewood, and even a canoe; the owner provided everything. The lake view is unbeatable. The beach is clean and sandy and the beds are very comfortable. The cottage doesn't feel like a cabin, it feels like a comfortable home and SUPER clean.
We definitely would love to return and stay even longer!
