About the property

3 bedrooms, two full baths, sleeps 8

Please note: Due to cleaning schedules our cottage rents from Sunday to Sunday in season. You must supply or rent your own sheets, towels, and soaps.

Our cottage is furnished to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. The media package is highlighted by a 60 inch flat screen HD TV, DVR, stereo and satellite WIFI internet (please note that internet downloading is limited by the satellite technology).

The ranch-style cottage features a great room with a living room, a dining area, and a fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances (the oven is not full-size) and a gorgeous view of the lake. Sliding glass doors from the kitchen exit onto a deck with lake views, table and chairs, and a gas grill. The living room has a gas stove.

The master bedroom has a queen bed, 55 inch TV, walk-in closet, and private master bath with a large ceramic tile shower. The second bedroom also has a queen bed, tv, with a large closet and full bath in the hall. The third bedroom has two sets of bunks and a large closet. The cottage is equipped with a full size washer and dryer.

A large screened porch on the lake side of the house gives 180 degrees of lake view.

There are two docks, one for boats and fishing and a floater for swimming and canoe/kayak launching. We supply a canoe, paddles, and life jackets (please use at your own risk). Please avoid dragging the canoe over the rocks but rather launch it from the dock, so that the bottom is not damaged. There is a fire pit/ring (we do not supply wood, but bundles can be purchased at the near-by White House Market).

Swimming off our lake-front is ideal, with clear no-wake water and minimal interference from waves, making it fun for younger children and adults.

Beautiful, Well Kept Lake House

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time staying at this home and we will definitely be back again. The house is well kept and well stocked and right on the water. We're able to dock our boat right onsite and the kids have a great time fishing and swimming. Both Queen bedrooms are comfortable and the bunk bed room is perfect for the kids. We used the fire pit, the grill, the canoe . . . can't wait to come back.

The perfect cottage

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been renting this cottage since the current owner acquired it several years ago. And one year prior to that. And we keep coming back! This year twice! If you are looking for a cozy cottage that is dog friendly on what we think is the best creek/cove on the entire lake, this is it.

Pretty much perfect

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed for two nights. The house was clean, updated, great furniture, beautiful kitchen, right on the lake, etc. great back porch overlooking the lake. We had such a good time and can’t wait until our next visit. No issues at all. Loved it, as did my boys.

Great house, location and "amenities"

  • 5 of 5

The house is comfortably updated inside and quite lovely. This was important since we did have a couple rainy days. We had 4 teenagers and a tween with us so having both a kayak and canoe already provided was a real boon. We also rented a pontoon for several days (really liked the folks at Parkway Marina) and were able to easily tie it to the dock and still have plenty of room on the other side for swimming. It is inside a cove so you'll have to boat out for vistas--we didn't mind. We used the grill once without a problem and the kitchen is indeed well stocked--including plastic containers for leftovers! The master bedroom mattress wasn't great, but that's not unusual for a rental--the boys were very happy with the bunks. This was our first visit to SML and I would definitely rent this house again. Thanks for a lovely vacation!

We enjoyed your SML home with great lake front activities: fishing, boating and swimming. It is a very restful location.
