Enjoy 120' of private lakefront on Upper Cooked Lake.
This is a wonderful spot to vacation for a week starting with a sunrise and filling each day with many fun lake and vacation activities to remember.
The house was build 12 years ago and has all the modern conveniences. The master bedroom has a king size bed with vaulted ceiling and attached bath, two bedrooms - with queen and full size beds and a fourth bedroom with bunks. The view is beautiful with an all glass front from the dining and great room.
This is a quiet all sports lake including fishing, swimming, waterskiing, and boating opportunities. The lake has a public launch and dock available if you would like to bring a boat. Finish off your vacation evenings with the sunset.
Excellent golfing options and other local attractions within a short distance.
Wonderful place!! Pontoon was great!! The house had everything you would ever want. The deck was a great relaxation place!
We had a wonderful time at this beautiful cottage. We had everything we needed. Our little grandchildren loved the sandy beach and fishing off of the pier. The house was the perfect size for our family with plenty of room for the kids to play. It was clean, comfortable and well maintained. The evenings were nice for gathering around the fire pit and the deck for that early morning cup of coffee. The owner was so helpful with the questions I had and called to make sure we had everything we needed. We hope to stay here again.
we had a great time. Kids fished and swam. the house was beautiful and had anything and everything you need to stay there. Only complaint the lake had alot of vegetation and was not as clean and clear as we had hoped. Had a great time anyway. Would reccomend to anyone with big family, plenty of room.
We stayed at this "cottage" in August 2011. We had family members coming and going at different times throughout the week and up to 12 a few nights. The house consists of what appears to be the original cottage (no A.C.) that has two bunkbeds in one bedroom and a queen bed in another, a full bath, a family room and a small galley kitchen. The other side of the house is newer and consists of a huge living room, an open, well stocked kitchen, a 1/2 bath with laundry, two queen beds upstairs that share a bath, and an unfinished basement serving as the game room. The house is so huge that at no time did we feel crowded and it was easy to get away if someone wanted a little solitude.
Even though there are neighbors on either side, the house is situated for maximum privacy and the view is beautiful. There is a large yard sloping toward the lake with new sod. The firepit was filled with water most evenings so building a campfire was a challenge but did not deter us. The is more a fishing lake than a swimming lake although sand has been added on one side of the dock for those wishing to swim or enjoy the raft. Kids and adults spent hours on the dock reeling in (tiny) fish and we made good use of the kayaks for exploring the lake.
We chose a week at the lake as an alternative to the usual holiday gifts that go unused or unappreciated and hoped instead to give a gift of memories that will last for years to come. Several of the kids commented that this was the "best Christmas present ever!!!" That's all we needed to hear to know we made the right decision and we hope to make this an annual or semi-annual tradition.
The only negative comments we can make are that, probably because it has been such a wet summer, the exterior of the house is in need of a good cleaning/power washing, including siding, deck, windows and chair cushions. The outdoor carpeting on the floating raft could also use replacing. Overall though, this was a great experience!
I contacted Rita about renting their lovely home last year and just got back from our week at their home. It was all we expected and more. The rooms were good size and accomodated our needs. The large dining table was great for all our meals and the fun time in the evening playing games from their wide variety under the window seat. The lake was wonderfully refreshing and the fishing was terrific, either off the dock or from the pontoon we rented. I had contacted Pine Boat rental and had no problems with them delivering the boat or with adding on an additional day since we were having so much fun. We had bonfires and smores and just a ton of wonderful memories. Only suggestion to the Hoxies would be to screen in a part of the deck....those mosquitoes were wicked as soon as the sun set. Anyone who rents this home will not be dissappointed. It is a deal for all you get, plus more....
Hi, I rented this home back in Aug 2009. Our family has been on vacation since and we are still talking about how much fun we had at this home. The price, location, home and personal contact with the owner was more than we could have asked for. We are now looking at 2012 vacation and look forward to going back to this home. If you are considering this home, you WILL NOT be disappointed. My family and I felt right at home, the fishing was excellent and the relaxation was priceless!!!!
The house is uniquely designed into two separate living areas with two bedrooms, kitchen, bath and living area in 1 section and two bedroom, kitchen and living area in the other. Both are connected as one house. Ideal for sharing a vacation week for two families and both have convenient private space but also, can be together.
