Great Week on the Lake!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great week at the lake! Love SML!

Cons first:

Lighting in the great room nonexistent, what little there is, bulbs out. Sofas are horribly uncomfortable. Front bedroom has no closet, consider removing dresser, hang TV from wall, add more shelves and hooks - there just wasn't anywhere to put renters belongings. Really dirty under beds.

Kitchen utensils are lacking and not very clean, we brought our own plates, silverware and utensils. No patio umbrella as shown in picture, even though L & F assured me one was there - bring your own, one for the patio and one for the dock, both get really hot!

Path to lake, almost overgrown at halfway point, buggy and stickers, needs to be trimmed back.


Depth of water at dock was great we spent most of our time there.

It was easy to dock our boat on the floater, well protected.

House was fine, liked the convenience of the W/D and newer appliances.

Easy unload and re load of cars, and loved the one level living.

House location has great access to all the places we like on SML.

We will return to Coveside Cottage!

Rest & Relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a great place to be! Beautiful views. Comfortable places outside at the house and in the little covered area between the lake and house. Great fishing right off the dock! We went for the free wine tasting and really enjoyed the winery and the welcome gift from the owners.

Comfortable & Convenient

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely spot on the lake! It is quiet and secluded, and yet very close to the grocery and the bridgewater area -- by car & boat. We've stayed in several lake locations, but this is by far the best! The house is bright & clean, with everything we needed. There is sunbathing on the patio, a gazebo area halfway to the lake and a large dock with a canoe. What fun! We will be back!

Great Dock & Canoe was a plus

  • 5 of 5

Coveside Cottage was in a great location. It felt private but was still close to everything we wanted to do. The kitchen was stocked well and there was a gaming console with games that my kids loved. There was a ramp that went into the water which made for easy access to the lake. My husband fished off of the dock with the kids every morning and loved it. The house was very clean and the rental company was easy to work with and very friendly. We will definitely come back.

Comfortable & private

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here! The home was super clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. The dock is fabulous! The steps down into the water made it easy for little ones to get in and the covered area was great for some shade. We made good use of the canoe - it was practically never out of the water. My favorite part was the private cabana. We could sit there and read or play games while still being able to keep tabs on what was happening in the dock. It's just what we look for in a vacation spot, quiet, private and comfortable. We will definitely be back!

Nature at it's Best

  • 3 of 5

Beautiful views of the lake. Deer crossing in the front yard to get to the pear tree on the side yard one evening.

great place to relax and enjoy each others company.

Our family enjoyed the time together in the home playing the games that are provided there,

plenty of room in the house, and yard.

Lots of room on the dock for watching birds or just watching the sunsets.

Thank you to the rental agency for going above and beyond with their help!
