Did not stay, the pictures of the cottage are very deceiving, maybe taken years ago. The cottage needs a lot of TLC, paint, curtains floors, furniture and cleaning. The mold and mildew overtook me upon entering. The owner agreed to reimburse me, but only sent partial back after haunting him to get it. His communication was very poor, never received directions, only got the address and lockbox info after emailing him with the request. Was not a good experience.

Owner's Response: This is the first time I have had somebody complain about the condition of the cottage the owner refunded the full amount of the rental the only money that was not there is a fee that the website takes out so I returned a full refund as I said i would on your first request no questions asked. I was unaware that their actions were necessary as it seems everybody uses their GPS these days which brings them to the site. Thank you John

Price reasonable, basics are there.

  • 2 of 5

John was great to deal with and he has obviously made an effort to tidy up an older cottage. The price is plenty for the accommodations. It was appreciated that only a 2 night minimum stay was required and it is a quiet location with a view. Furnishings a little rough. If you are sensitive to the smell of a moist house, this may not be for you, some visible mold on bedroom ceiling. Screened in porch is the best part.

Our experience wasuinique since we arrived late at night and had a hard time finding it- a lot of twisty-turns little roads after you get off Outlet road- but persevere like we did and you will find it- it's easy in daylight!

I'd stay here again in a minute!

The property was rustic with a camp atmosphere

  • 3 of 5

The property has a nice large screened in front porch facing the lake, which was a nice place to have coffee in the morning. The yard is very large and great for the kids and dog to play in The area overall is conveniently located

Very pleased with location and accomodations

  • 4 of 5

The place was wonderful. It is a little rustic inside, but I personally like that kind of place. It was a very quiet community right on the lake and the mornings and evenings were amazing there. John was great and answered every question I had promptly on things. The yard area leading down to the lake was great for my dog to enjoy and romp in. We would definitely consider staying here again in the future.
