Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time on our first family vacation here. Kids had a blast swimming and jumping off the dock. The camp has everything we needed, floats to cooking appliances and accessories. We would love to return next year.

Cozy Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this cottage for an extended weekend to celebrate our anniversary, and the listing description is very accurate. It is cute, cozy, and clean. The kitchen was well equipped, and we were in need of nothing. Also, we were able to bring our dog which was great. We especially enjoyed the large dock and the canoe as well as the patio area under the deck. The lake is extremely beautiful and this cottage is in a great location. We will consider going back again and recommend it either for a small family or couple looking for a reasonably priced, clean cottage right on the water.

Great Stay

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking for a clean, rustic cottage, and on a beautiful lake, this is a great spot. It is 20 minutes from a lot of tourist attractions, but is nestles away in a small town. My husband and I have 2 kids the cottage fit us well, I would not recommend it for more then 4 people.

We had a great experience with the owner as well!

Thank You

Rainy Week

  • 4 of 5

A great little cottage with all the amenities you would need. Right on the lake with a great view and sitting areas to enjoy it; especially viewing the loons. Lake was very clean and great for swimming and water sports. I hauled my 17ft boat to fish. Launch area very small and shallow. Would not suggest anything more than 17 ft. Easy to get to cottage and close to groceries and other shopping. Movie theater also...good for the rainy days. I only wish we had more sun during the week we stayed.
