Our family of four, two adults and two girls (ages 7 and 5) stayed 4 nights at the end of July-2nds of August. This cabin had everything we needed and gave us everything we were looking for during our stay. The cabin itself is older and definately has a "cabin" feel. It is not flashy and is not modern, but it was PERFECT for us. The cabin sits on a nice big lot with woods on both sides, so you cannot see the neighbors and really dont know they exist unless you are on the dock. Has a nice big back yard with a hammock and swing that our kids loved to lay and play on. Outdoor shed has just about anything you need in it; life jackets, grills, fishing nets. There is also a paddle boat and row boat to use. We had hours of fun getting out on the two boats and paddling around the lake. Little water traffic and very quiet (we were there during the week though). Endless catching of bluegills and perch right off the dock. They werent the biggest fish but our kids just LOVED having the chance to catch something. We caught enough big blue gills that we fried them up for dinner one night...yum! Much of our time was spent just relaxing on the dock or in the back yard. The kids loved swimming right off the dock. The water was clean but did have grassy spots and does have a red tint to it. We had NO cell service the whole time but we were in need of some isolation so that worked perfect for us. The owner Jerry even offered for us to use his land-line any time we wanted if we needed it. Definately wished we had a power boat of some kind. We will keep that in mind for future use. It is about 15 minutes from Phillips (definately no longer) which offers some little shops, restaurants, several parks, and some other sight seeing. Its not a huge bustling town, but it suited our needs. I did some research and knew it was perfect for us. Working with Jerry was VERY easy and he was a very nice guy. Their house was just down the road and he repeatedly said during check in to stop over if we needed anything. Again, my kids are 7 and 5 and it was perfect but they did have some of their own toys and play well anywhere. If your kids are older (12-17) I could see them maybe getting a little bored. Again, there is no cell or internet service. But if you want relaxation and R&R then this is the place. Thanks again Jerry!!
The cabin was roomy and we enjoyed having a full size kitchen. The outside was nice with the fire pit and the boat. It was nice the shed had life jackets and grill to use.
Unfortunately we did not care for the furniture in the cabin not comfortable. No cell service or internet was fine for a day or two but then it became a bother. The description said the cabin was child friendly but we did not find that, if you don't fish every single day there is not much for them to do. The cabin is a good 20 minutes from town and we did not find much to do in Phillips. The worst part of our vacation came at the end my husband did the walk through and Jerry said everything looked great. We get home and I receive a phone call telling me my childeren damaged the property. I was told my childern put dart holes in the bathroom and broke the table and we lied about it and tried to hide it. After a long week that was not a phone call I need when I tried to explain we did not do those things I was told childern lie and hide things.
We would not recommend this property to people with childern, you may find yourself paying for damages that you did not cause.
We had an excellent time staying at this cabin! Everything we could possibly need or want was supplied in the cabin or shed - firewood, boats, indoor games and puzzles, first aid kit, and cooking supplies (including basic spices and cooking oils). The cabin is west-facing on the lake so the sunset is gorgeous. There is a fire pit and a hammock outside and the neighbors are not visible from the yard so it is very private. The cabin itself was very clean and organized when we arrived, and Jerry was very friendly and helpful during check-in and check-out. The city of Phillips is a short drive away and had restaurants and shops in case you want to go out. We want to return in the future!
Cons: No internet service (though this was a plus for me!), no cell service through AT&T, and very limited service through Sprint. Speakers are not hooked up so we couldn't listen to music from the iPod. We didn't attempt it, but I imagine the lake isn't the best for swimming because there is a lot of seaweed and it's very dark orange colored.
We have stayed in this cabin numerous times over the past few year. It has a beautiful view of the lake which provides magnificent sunsets. The cabin is always clean and has a well equipped kitchen. The owners are friendly and very helpful! The area provides an excellent opportunity to enjoy many outdoor activities. We enjoyed the area so much we purchased a place of our own down the road.
We went to the cabin for our 27th anniversary. We had some alone time and then the rest of our family came up. There was plenty of space for all six of us. The cabin was very clean and well maintained. The lake was wonderful, we spent everyday out in our boat fishing. We caught enough fish to have supper and take plenty home with us. We actually threw them back, we were sick of cleaning fish. We caught plenty of fish right off the dock. The view was fabulous. The road it's on is quiet, not like other cabins we have stayed at. You really do only need to bring food. The photos and descriptions of the property are accurate. It was so relaxing. The owners are super nice and had plenty of information about the lake and the area. We have already recommended this property to our friends and family and are already planning our next trip there.
We truly enjoyed our week at the cabin. Our 2 dogs loved the dock and the water. Everything was just perfect. The cabin is completely stocked with everything you need for a relaxing and fun vacation. The cabin was comfortable, cozy and most important, clean. Ann and Jerry have thought of everything and were very easy to communicate with. Thank you again for the wonderful place to call home for a week. We will be back in the future!
