About Dan and Amy McGillivray

Our stay was absolutely perfect. The house was clean upon arrival and the owner made sure we didn’t need anything during our stay. We will staying again next summer! :)
Property was clean with plenty of room for my family. The owners thought of everything including two different type of coffee makers. Owners checked in with us to insure we had everything we needed. The area was fabulous! We loved every minute of our vacation! I would recommend this cottage!
Great house with a beautiful location
This home had plenty of beds and space for our extended family trip of 8! The home is located on the lake, with a great dock to soak in the view. We rented a pontoon for the day and were able to park it at the dock at the house. This house was great and the owner was in constant communication with us!
Would rent again!
Love this place!
The place is very comfy and clean. We really enjoyed our stay there and if we had time, would have stayed a couple more days. We did rent a pontoon boat, having the pier was really nice. Can't think of anything negative to say about the place other than it is 5hrs from where I live ;)
The kitchen had a good set of knives, pots, pans, dishes, glasses, etc Which was really convenient, since we cooked every meal.
Bedrooms were nice and had a great view of the lake.
We did run into a couple of snags, but it was handled quickly and efficiently by the owner and the property manager.
A great place and a great weekend. So much room for our grandsons to explore, and somewhere to send them for a timeout (or nap) from the family fun up at the Hoop N Holler. It was perfect, enough room for all between my sister's and Teal Wing. We've driven by 100 times or more but never suspected such a nice place, a hidden gem. Thank you for making our weekend so easy and comfortable!
Cute little place
The house was very clean. My family and I had a great time.
