Really nice place. Great view, clean, well stocked

  • 5 of 5

This was a really nice place to stay. Clean, cozy, very nicely decorated. We were impressed on how well stocked the kitchen was with a kettle, utensils, bowls, dishes, baskets.. Full size refrigerator and stove. All very nice. Really is the size of a small house. We especially liked the huge wrap around counter in the kitchen and the wrap around deck with gates. Every place we have rented has never had a way to contain our four legged friends. We appreciated that. Just a minor note to all cabin owners, perhaps some extra pantry space to store dry foods, and an extra dresser or 2 in the bedrooms. Not intended to be critical because this truly was a great place to stay at and we hope to come back again. Thank you for letting us stay there.

Awesome!! Better than we imagined!

  • 5 of 5

A quiet place was a phenomenal get away and provided everything we needed and more! We were in town for a wedding and had a wonderful time staying in the lovely home in between the wedding festivities! The owners went above be beyond to show their hospitality. We plan to come back!

Beautiful and well kept home and property

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful vacation experience at this lakeside property. It's like having a home on the lake and every day is a weekend day.

Our charter boat captain picked us up and dropped us off at property boat dock after a day of catching striper bass on the lake. It was so convenient.

Swimming off the dock was fun too.

The property has a tranquil quietness and is off the beaten path. Such a wonderful retreat.

Our family enjoyed getting together and this property made us so comfy and homey.

I highly recommend this property and the management company was very responsive to our questions and needs.

Quiet, comfy cove with back porch view and rocking chairs

  • 5 of 5

The house was difficult to locate in the dark, but once we found it, we were happy to have plenty of room to park the boat/trailer out front. The kitchen was equipped with everything we might need in this lifetime! Our dogs enjoyed the porch as much as we did. It was just the two of us so we only used the master bedroom, which was comfortable and roomy. Everything was clean and there were great instructions and helpful suggestions for local needs.

The dock was set up well in the back of the cove, so it was convenient to leave the boat there overnight. We would definitely stay again and will recommend it to others. Thanks for the last minute rental on Memorial Day weekend.

Clean & Comfortable Stay

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from a weekend at "The Quiet Side." We were a group of 8 long-time friends and it fit the 8 of us very comfortably. The common areas are large and the gigantic L-shaped kitchen peninsula with bar stools was a nice feature. The kitchen was well-stocked and had plenty of dishes and pots and pans. The bedrooms were a good size and the beds were comfortable and noise from downstairs didn't seem to travel upstairs much. Another perk was that the house was SPOTLESS. While it was too cold to be outside, the house has a beautiful back porch with lots of patio furniture that would be great to enjoy in warmer weather. Overall we loved our time here and can't wait to return!
