I would recommend this lovely cabin to anyone who wants to just get away from it all and relax. Cinnamon lake is beautiful and peaceful. Our family plans on returning in the near future!

                                                                    Back for the 6th time in 3 yrs..love it!!!

Our vaca was cut short for my hubby due to his sister's passing which he got the call as soon as we pulled in that friday sigh~~ But for the first time I brought my Dad,, whom absolutely loved it.. i caught a yellow pike, so big it twirled the canoe around in circle's for what seemed like hours .. What a blast ..Again..So cozy, so homey... Just beautiful .this is defiantly our HOME away from home.. See you again this summer.......... thank you Kim :)

                                                                    Accurate description of property

                                                                    Carol B.

                                                                    There were seven of us and we were happy to find the property as advertised. For the number of houses around the lake, it is surprising quiet and we felt secluded. We enjoyed the community pool and were happy to see the lifeguards on duty. We ranged in age from 4 to 62 and everyone had fun. We enjoyed the canoe and paddleboat, the fire pit was used nearly every night. The deck was used often Great views and large yard. The house had everything we needed, but only two trash bags were provided. Perhaps this was an oversight from the cleaning crew. The beds were comfortable. Overall this was one of our favorite vacations.

                                                                    Owner's Response:

I'm so happy to hear that everyone enjoyed themselves and that you took advantage of many of the amenities. I'm sorry to hear there were not enough trash bags, there should have been at least 10 provided. I am honored to have played a small part in one of your favorite family vacations. We offer a discount to returning guests. I hope you will consider staying again in the future.

We have enjoyed this home on the lake for the last several years as we have traveled to Ohio to visit family: wedding, high school graduations, Thanksgivings. The teens in the family have enjoyed the lake with the canoe, paddle boat, and FISHING! I have enjoyed the peace and tranquility. Everything you need for family fun is available, and you can bring the pups.
