Excellent little cabin, perfect place to get away.

  • 5 of 5

Great place to relax and enjoy the quite scenery of lake Mitchell. We enjoyed the easy access to the lake via the canal behind the house. The house was very clean and perfect for the two of us. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a getaway.

The cabin was not what we expected, we had hoped for a nice place to relax but left a day early. Quiet area, kitchen well equipped with nice appliances, furniture very uncomfortable, outside untidy and over grown. The deck overlooking the canal was propped up with cement block and loose wood. Although Dewayne was quick to respond to questions and return our deposit, the property would benefit to some owner attention and TLC.

Owner's Response: The two couches in the Lake House are log furniture. I've never felt log to be the most comfortable furniture but it's very pretty and durable. As far as why the blocks are under the dock is because it sank in the spring. Whoever built it didn't concrete the post into the ground. The blocks are under as a temporary fix to level it out so people don't fall and hurt themselves.This fall I plan to dig out the post and concrete them in. I try to do major repairs so as not to disturb the renters, but it has been rented solid from May until late September.

We loved staying here where we were close to the grandkids. I just wish we could have had wifi or better cell reception. Overall it was nice.

Fishing cabin on a pretty channel leading out to lake Mitchell.

  • 2 of 5

First I want to say that Dewayne was wonderful to work with. He responded very quickly to questions we had prior to our stay. He called us during our stay to make sure everything was going ok, and he was very prompt in returning our security deposit after we checked out. The cabin we rented, however, was not what we anticipated. We knew it was going to be small by the description and pictures, but although it was listed as suitable up to 6 people, It was awfully tight quarters for the 6 of us. I guess the pictures looked like there was more room than there really is. The cabin would be ideal for a couple of fishermen wanting to have access to the lakes, but was not a family vacation type of place. The channel out back was very pretty and our teenagers enjoyed fishing off the docks, catching lots of small blue gill every evening. Though the cabin was not what we had hoped it would be, we made the best of it and we really do appreciate Dewayne's attentiveness.
