Excellent choice!

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as adversized...spotlessly clean, well equipped, etc. The owner was very easy to work with and returned the security deposit in a timely manner. The convenience to the lake was outstanding, and the view was wonderful. My husband canoed and I sat on the deck and soaked up the ambience. We enjoyed poking around the countryside and learning more about the area. I would definitely return to this cottage.

Wonderful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband, stepdaughter & I rented this lovely cottage from Ed. My in-laws have been coming to Lake Saint Catherine and staying at the cottages down the street every year. This year was the 50th anniversary for the group, so the location of this rental was within walking distance to our family. We also loved that we were allowed to bring our dogs. They loved swimming in the lake every day. Ed was also very understanding when I had to call him to let him know that one of our dogs went through the screen door. He just asked that we get it fixed before we left. We hope to stay at this great place again next summer.

Great getaway cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately we were there for only a weekend! This is a quaint, neat comfortable lake cottage. Ed was easy to work with booking and answering all our questions. The fishing was great we were allowed to bring a small motor for the row boat allowing us to see this beautiful lake. We caught some nice bass and northern pike. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone thinking about vacationing in this area. We enjoyed watching the eagles catch fish in the bay.

Terrific Lake St. Catherine Rental

  • 5 of 5

My two week stay at the the Cottage Illusion was a great experience. The view from the deck on the front of the camp overlooking the water was spectacular, and the large sliding doors from the living room onto the deck give you the feeling of being outside even on rainy days. The large yard provided ample room for a relative's grandchildren play when they stopped in for a visit. Ed and Carolyn were fantastic about getting in touch with us and asking if there was anything we would need to make our stay as relaxing and enjoyable an experience as possible. The fact it is also a rental that welcomes guests to bring along their pets, provided they are well behaved, is a great additional feature. Having been a long time renter of camps around Lake St. Catherine over the last 15+ years I can safely say my stay at Cottage Illusion was by far the most enjoyable and would recommend this property to anyone with complete enthusiasm.

Nice Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is perfect for a family of four. It was clean and comfortable. The ceiling fans are great for the hot weather. Our dog loved "fishing" in the lake. Kids loved jumping off the dock. We couldn't get the paddle boat to steer, so we couldn't use it. The view is beautiful. We can't wait to go back.
