The Perfect Place for a Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This charming cottage is perfect for a family vacation. This was our second stay and hopefully not our last. The vintage cottage and the fabulous sunroom overlooking the lake, the sounds of the loons, even a lighthouse - they all make this cottage a very special place. Rick and Mary are fabulous hosts - always available but never intrusive.

Great vacation, Great view, Great people

  • 5 of 5

Thank you very much Rick and Mary, your cabin allowed us to have a perfect long Labor Day Weekend! The camp is perfect, has everything you need, and is nestled perfectly in the trees/right on the lake. Spent everyday out on the lake catching fish after fish in the perfect weather. The lake was beautiful - saw a bunch of hawks, bald eagles, loons, and much more; ooo and amazing sunset views right from the property! Thanks again for a great vacation!

Wonderful vacation. Very nice cottage with a great view of the lake. Spent all of our time enjoying water sports and relaxing in the beautiful 3 season room. The property owners were great hosts. Lots of great memories.

Just what the doctor ordered!

  • 4 of 5

R& R: It is never easy to pick a spot for your vacation, but after reading what this camp offered we knew it would be perfect for rest, relaxation, and some great family fun! The rental was well maintained and represented well by pictures and description.

The owners offered great support and made us feel right at home!

The BEST feature is the front room , which feels like it sits right on the lake...the sleep sofa allows you to listen to the lake all night long if you wanted too :)
