Great place to relax, unwind and still love your family at the end of the week

  • 5 of 5

Neil and Pam have maintained a fantastic home on the lake, very clean and exceptionally well appointed. It's the kind of place where you can flop down on the couch at the end of a sun-filled day and not smell every other dog that has ever been at the cottage. Furniture and surfaces were all wonderfully clean, and nothing had a damp or deteriorated feel. The way the house and bedrooms are laid out was perfect for us: 2 kids (2.5 years and 10 months), me and my husband, and my in-laws. Everyone was perfectly isolated with their own zones of peaceful silence. One of my concerns when I initially booked was the lack of AC units... The house is perfectly designed to maximize the cross breeze off the lake. We actually ended up shutting the windows after 10 pm most nights because it got TOO cool if we left them open. Every room is equipped with a big box fan as well, to help with air circulation, or to drown out the bird chirping. The living spaces are zoned appropriately for families as well; adults stayed up and played cards on the porch or watched tv in the living room without the slightest hint of disturbance to the kids. A final note on the zones: there was enough space that none of us felt like we were every on top of each other, or unable to get away from one another when we were inside the house.

On the supplies: You really do not need to bring anything. Pam and Neil provide everything you could possibly need, and plenty of things you don't. From laundry detergent to dish towels, we seriously did not need to bring anything. And, even better, their knives are sharp. Nothing worse than dull knives in the kitchen. This did cause me to never unwrap my knives, and so I forgot them. But Neil and Pam shipping them back to me a few days later, confirming their status as amazing landlords.

The beach and water: The sandy play area is amazing for kids. There was always a little bit of shade somewhere on the beach to avoid the sun. The water was refreshing in August and though the lake definitely has plant life, the swimming area around the dock and in front of the beach is perfectly clean and sandy for at least 30 feet. At the end of the dock the water is probably 3 feet deep, so its great for the kids. Plenty of chairs for sitting and relaxing.

Overall just a wonderful place to kick back. My one complaint is having to go to the dump to get rid of trash. Pick up would be ideal, not sure if it's available in the area or not.

Book it, you will be happy!

Just right!! Coffee and breakfast on the screened in porch. Bike riding just outside the door. Did road biking every morning up to 40 miles. Beach and lake front at your finger tips. Lots of floating toys to play with but we also brought water guns and kayaks. Grilling for lunch and dinner and then down to the fire pit for a relaxing evening of stories and smores. Central location to allow for shopping at the outlets, hikes and taking in some of the lost river caves.
