Great Lake View

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful place to stay to relax and play on the lake. Easy access to lake to boat, fish, swim or enjoy the most beautiful sunset. The house has a lot of room for relaxing and enjoyment. The back deck provides a beautiful view of the lake and scenery.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

Just enjoyed a Memorial Day weekend there with lots of family! The house was great! Floor plan is perfect! Nice large room upstairs for all the kids to play and sleep. Tons of yard space for yard games and still right on the water! Will definitely keep this house in mind for future gatherings. And the owners were so nice to work with. You won't regret renting this house!

Never disappoints!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful getaway. I can't say enough good things about this property. We've used it for lodging many times on golf trips & it's extremely beautiful. The setting couldn't be more perfect on the lake & away from all distractions. The floor plan is fantastic & it sleeps a lot. A lot! Give it a try. You'll love it.

Summer retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful well maintained home in a nice quiet setting. It is well decorated, very clean and very comfortable. It is truly a place to go and get away yet close to stores and restaurants if you decide to eat out. If you want to relax, regroup and just get away, this is the house to rent. Large rooms with plenty of elbow room. Master bed room down stairs is large and comfortable. A GREAT retreat !!!!!!!

Retreat into the woods.....

  • 5 of 5

We have had the pleasure of staying in Cownie Lodge on several occasions as a retreat with friends. If you want the perfect get-away for a private and beautiful escape from your everyday world, this is it! The Lodge is fully equipped, large enough to accommodate several couples or a large family. We are nature lovers, and this did not disappoint! The back deck looked out on to the gorgeous lake and the rustic woods. We traveled in the fall, so the autumn leaves were brilliant. We played our music, we danced, laughed, cooked our food, and played together in the privacy of the Lodge. Always a hit to be able to build a fire and enjoy the outdoors. If any of this entices you to plana trip, you will be greatly satisfied!!!
