Stay there!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful and relaxing weekend at this lake front cottage. The house is situated at the end of a cul-de-sac and so is that part of the lake, which made it nice and quiet for our stay. We enjoyed kayaking and exploring the lake with an entry point onto the lake in the backyard of the house. There is a gas grill and space for starting a campfire, which was lovely for steaks and marshmallows at night. It was a great value for the money and our family will definitely be coming back here next summer.

Our family absolutely LOVES it here. The boats, the location to the lake, the quiet surroundings - This is the best place for a relaxing time away from everything. Our family has visited the last two years, and plan to continue to do so for years to come! The house is lovely an cozy, it doesn't get better than this :)

Tranquil, private, lakefront spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time during our long weekend on Ashmere lake. The grill got plenty of use, we loved the hammock and the porch swing and the ease with which we could take our kayaks down the lawn and into the water. The house is well maintained and came with towels and sheets, and the kitchen is fully stocked with plates, etc. which made packing for the weekend easy. The owner was thorough and detailed and very responsive. Would definitely return and recommend!

Here again!

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed this home so much last year, we returned this year and had great fun. The fishing is good, fire pit for smores and big yard for the dog! If you forgot your fishing pole, don't worry, there are some here. The house was big enough for all eight of us and the back porch is great for sitting and watching the lake and nature.

Great Place! Very Peaceful! Kids loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this cottage. The downstairs was recently remodeled and the furniture was comfortable. The backyard was very private with a hammock and a porch swing. There was also a firepit for making smores! The kids fished every day and the community lake/beach area was nice and quiet too.

There was a couple bikes in the shed (one was the EXACT one I had as a little girl growing up "Cactus Flower") which we used a little bit. (The kids had brought their own bikes with them, but I rode the cactus flower to the beach....banana seat and all! :)

Hopefully we will come back next year!

Clean house. Full of everything you need, even fishing poles! The fishing is great. The peddle boat was great fun for the teens and the row boat good for fishing. Both are very heavy to carry to the water, though not far to go. Peaceful and quiet. The swing on the porch got lots of use. Big yard for the dog.
