Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6, or 8 with addition of Annex)

Crappie Cottage (named for the fish) is the perfect spot for a couples' retreat or a family gathering -- featuring fishing, swimming, and lots of spots to relax. Charming, but not rustic (WiFi, 3 LCD TVs, DVD), it's equipped with everything you need except food and bait. There's a covered boat dock for fishing and you can moor a boat dockside. There's a large swim dock next door for playing or sunning.

If there are more than 6 of you, consider adding the ANNEX, which is a separate, private suite for two located next door. It includes a king bed, full bath, parlor, screened porch, patio and it comes with use of a golf cart.

Crappie Cottage is in a park-like setting in a quiet residential cove, and

Horseshoe Bend is one of the nicest areas of the lake, providing golf and fine dining on the Bend and a wide choice of vacation activities within a 15 minute drive.

Wonderful home and property!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Crappie Cottage! It was so clean and tastefully decorated. The homeowners were very accommodating. The home had everything we needed for a weekend getaway. The property is breathtaking and we will be back this summer. The only downfall is staying more than a few days would be difficult without having a washer and dryer or you just need to pack more clothes to accommodate:-)

Will be back!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this place! Not only is it in a quiet secluded area but close to everything! It was so clean! I felt like home and the owners were friendly, polite and respected our privacy. They thought of everything! The kitchen had a good enough supply to make dinner every night. Plenty of towels, firewood, soap, garbage bags, shampoo, lawn chairs, and more! Wi-Fi wasn't the greatest but it worked 75% of the time, TV in both rooms (not the twin bed room) and in the living room. The view from every window was spectacular and there are tons of Windows! The twin bed room is super tiny, it's good for sleeping only. But the other rooms are big and sunny! The only complaint (which isn't a big deal) was the water pressure. I have thick hair and it was hard to rinse, but I really didn't mind because everything else was PERFECT! My son and husband caught quite a bit of fish off the pier ( which had a cleaning station and roof) deer were everywhere! Very peaceful and relaxing, just what we were looking for!

Private Little Paradise

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful setting, so peaceful & welcoming. Right on the water. A fisherman's dream. My husband & i caught tons of fish & had such a pleasant stay. The house has everything that you could want. Jerry & Candy provided all the little details that you may need for a fantastic stay. Everything was sparkling clean. The location is wonderful in that everything is just a short drive away. Our little dogs approved of everything, as well. We had a lovely time thanks to Jerry & Candy sharing their private wonderland with us.

Best Vacay Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful! We traveled with 2 adults, 2 teenagers, and a dog, and this property was perfect. The Crappie Cottage has beautiful finishes, and is truly stocked with everything from blender to beach towels. The kitchen has everything, there's floaties by the swim dock, and wood by the fire pit. Location is awesome, just minutes from great food and loads of things to do. I could go on and on. Thank you Jerry and Candy - we'll be back!
