Large Four Bedroom, 2.5 Bath Lake Home .
Built as our future retirement home. We have seven children, two son in laws and adding a new daughter in law this summer. We run a large, busy farm 30 miles from our lake home. This sweet place provides us with the opportunity to relax and enjoy each other away from the bustle of the farm.
Owner purchased this Cabin in 2007
Why Owner chose Darwin
We built this home for the future as a place close enough for us to enjoy often as a family.
What makes this Cabin unique
We love the quiet residential neighborhood, The clean clear lake. The size of the lake is perfect as it is not a destination lake, so it remains calm and peaceful. Lots of room inside and outside, perfect for large groups.

We were a group of 5 adults and 3 children. The water was perfect for the boys, they spent hours playing with the great water toys especially the inner tubes. Fishing off the dock catching and releasing sunnies was our 7 year olds favorite pastime. There is so much space in the house and yard anyone who wanted to find a quiet place could. Everything we needed plus more was there for our use. This is our 5th year of renting a lake house for us all to relax at it was great.
The only thing that could have improve our visit was if the hosts would post directions on their site on how to get there from Darwin, 3 cars and 3 different internet directions where used and only one set of directions were correct. If there was already directions provided on your site we all missed seeing them. We ❤️❤️❤️ this vacation home and would recommend it to all our friends.
So wonderful to hear your family enjoyed themselves. The fishing off the dock keeps our kids entertained for hours too! I think you are right about directions, it seems that is an increasing problem. So many little lakes to get around, and for some reason Siri gets confused😉�.
Property owners gamble ruined our vacation
We did like the property and grounds, although the water in the unit had a horrible sulfur smell.
The unbelievable problem was that the owners were not honest with us. Weeks prior to our vacation the owners had been notified by the Lake Erie Lake Association that the water surrounding their property was to be chemically treated with 2-4-D. (This was confirmed when we spoke to the head of the Lake Association.) While the bright orange DNR warning sign, which was posted near the dock, said that it was "safe" to swim, once we read on-line that the chemical could cause irreversible eye damage, among other things, we obviously weren't going back into the water! Responsible property owners would have notified us that there was a chance that our rental time could be impacted by the chemical treatment of the water. We would have then found a safe place to take our one family vacation of the year. We were financially reimbursed for our lost days, and the frustration, but our only opportunity for summer lake time was ruined.

The whole situation was unfortunate. We had no control over the timing of the treatment. It was to be sometime this summer. I spoke to the association the day before check in, she reported it they were still working out the details, but it would be a few weeks yet and we would be notified before they began. We were notified, unfortunately, it was three hours after the treatment occurred. We would never put our guests at risk, nor would we ever mislead any of our guests. It is not the way we live our lives.
The signs posted were clear that it was safe to swim and fish immediately. We more than doubled the compensation, in addition, we offered to pay for two nights in a hotel of their choosing.
The water issue is a common one with lake homes. It reoccurs and we have the problem on a preventative maintenance plan which works nicely. We are just a phone call away and always encourage our guests to call us with any questions or concerns. We care very deeply about our guests and work hard to solve any concerns quickly during their stay at our home.
Relaxing lake experience
Home was spacious cleaned and the pictures posted on the sight were spot on.
The only thing that needs improvement is the gas grill. It needs to be replaced.house was well equipped for preparing and eating meals. Supplies were plentiful
For doing laundry and doing dishes. I hope to return to this property.
So glad you enjoyed your family time at our home. Thank you for pointing out the grill issue, we have resolved that. We hope to see you back soon!
Summer Family Get-Together
This is our second stay at this location. The owners are great to work with and the house is able to accommodate our large group of adults and children.
Great family vacation spot!
We stayed here for our 3rd consecutive summer vacation. It had large common areas and lots of room for our 3 generations! A nice flat lot allows for easy access to the water and the kids enjoyed fishing off the dock. This is a wonderful place and we highly recommend it!
Family get together
We needed a place with indoor and outdoor space for hosting a family function. This house is very spacious and it had plenty of outdoor space to play bags, catch, etc. It also has a nice lakefront to accommodate kayaks and canoes while others were fishing. The inlet next to the property was full of panfish which kept everyone that wanted to fish plenty busy.
Our whole family had a great time. The only drawback was the water in the house had a sulphur odor while taking showers. Not a terrible thing, just something to be aware of.
We would definitely stay here again!
So glad you enjoyed our home Jared. I apologize for the sulfur issue, we have resolved this issue, hopefully we will see you in the future!
