This site had everything we wanted at a great price. Gary the owner was a great person to deal with. We had plenty of room for all 8 who went and everything in the house worked fantastic. This house is in the perfect spot on the lake close to everything yet neseled in a nice privite spot. The boat dock was great we spent a lot of time there.. We will be back. Thank you Gary.

Perfect quiet location with amazing dock!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed every minute of our stay. The dock was spacious and offers shade as well as sun. The boat ramp was very close to the property and we were able to launch our waverunners with ease. We enjoyed driving to the two close restaurant on the waverunners. The owners were very prompt with answering questions via email. We will definitely be back to this property!

Quaint cottage on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

If you enjoy waking up every morning, looking out over a quiet lake, listening to the sounds of the nature, than this is the place for you. The sun room and dock were our favorite places to be. The house was equipped with everything you should need. I especially loved the sunroom has plenty of light, so we could play games at night. 4 bedrooms gave plenty of sleep space.

We were close enough to take the our boat to Waters View restaurant for dinner, which was amazing!

The owner was a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend this rental.

It's all about the dock and this one is perfect for a small or large group. Nice cove for swimming and all other water activities. The inside of the house is a bit on the dark side but there is a wonderful large screened in porch with a large table for meals, a swing chair, rocking chairs and couch. Nice grill and fire pit. We will be back!!

The Perfect Get-A-Way cottage for us

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at the Bolton's cottage and were not disappointed that it was not directly on the big lake. This location was nestled just off the lake in a charming and quiet inlet.

Although this cottage was a few decades old, it was well maintained and the Dock/Pier/Sundeck and Bar addition was a wonderful way to catch a few rays, get my fish line wet and enjoy the quiet beauty of this quaint home in the trees.

The owners were easy and pleasant to deal with and were appreciative of our suggestions for maintinence.

One thing I forgot to mention to them, however, was the age and condition of the mattresses which my wife and I agreed needed to be replaced.

Although it was not a problem for us, since were were to old to use them anyway, was the fact that the paddle boat and large canoe are very heavy and there is no lift for them. If the kids had been with us, they would have been disappointed.

All in all we were happy we chose this nice place and if you bring or rent a boat, the dock is super. There is no way you could have a bad time here.

We do not hesitate to recommend it.
