About Robert & Kathy Curtis

Bob and Kathy Curtis

The picture was taken on a beautiful September day 'down at the point.' We live near Theresa and bought the property from a friend when our children were younger. They helped us build the cottage in 1994 and 1995. Now they live far away but enjoy coming back for a time at the cottage every summer. Bob works as a Civil Engineer and Kathy is a Home and Careers teacher.

Robert & Kathy Curtis purchased this cottage in 1994

A quite place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting this cottage every year since 2006. It is clean, spacious, remote and quiet. It's a beautiful place to get away from the craziness of the working world. This year is the first year we have ever had a problem. He leave our boat trailer at the public launch. It was vandalized this year with valve stems being cut and the wench strap being stolen. How sad! It doesn't steal our joy of a great vacation! We use the generator little. It's a great place to enjoy the outdoors. The owners are wonderful people and are easy to get in touch with if needed.

Very Clean

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful cottage away from it all. Very clean, well maintained. Owner did not give enough info re: boat launching & steps/wooden walkway/rocky path down to the water. Difficult to navigate. Swimming was great. Lake water very clean & refreshing. Refrigerator very small. Be sure to take camping coolers for juice & beverages. Loud generator. Very spacious & scenic.

Very Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

As we drove into the very secluded cottage we were greeted by a fawn and two doe. The wildlife included turkey, loons, and hummingbirds. We spent most our time at the lake fishing, canoeing, and kayaking. Great fishing off the dock or on a boat. Public boat launches available. Private dock included with cottage. The cottage was spacious with an open loft overlooking very open first floor. The property was secluded, yet had many modern conveniences. We would recommend the cottage to anyone looking to get away from the hustle of tourist traps. The lake feels like your own private retreat with minimal boat activity. The year was a wet one so bug spray is a must. Great overall expereince.

Very Secluded

  • 4 of 5

After the long travel to the cottage on the narrow one lane cliff edged road you find a beautiful get away cottage on what seems to be your very own lake. (Not really that bad once you know what to expect.) The home is set up great for familys and the owners have provided many of the conviences that you use in your own home. If you don't need to take a lot of day trips this is the place for you. We enjoyed our time and wished we could stay longer.
