My husband and I came up alone to relaxe but this cottage has room for another family upstairs( grandchildren friendly for sure) we cooked out every day on the awesome grill! We swam,used the kayaks, enjoyed the game cabinet and just loved chilling on the deck over looking the lake. The swans that visited daily were lovely to watch! Look know more if your looking for a lake home to rent.... This is it!
We so hope to return❤️
Property was absolutely perfect for our family of 5. The place was fully updated, super clean and very welcoming. The beach was perfect - lots of toys, kayaks, paddle board, etc. Fire pit with Smores and Hobo pies was perfect. This place had all the touches and the owners couldnt have been any nicer! We really enjoyed our stay and are already looking forward to next year.
Our family just returned home from Burke's Cottage, and we are already looking to book a stay for next summer. The owner's, Jackie and Dan, truly go above and beyond to ensure that your trip is delightful. The home is completely updated, clean, and well-maintained. We (4 adults and 2 children, ages 5 and 7) spent our days in the sand, fishing off the pier, kayaking and paddle-boarding (thanks for providing the toys!), boating (thanks for allowing us to bring our own boat!), enjoying the sunsets from the second floor balcony and pier, and nightly campfires. Not only are the lake and home ideal, but the vineyards, farmer's markets, and quality restaurants are plentiful in the area. A sincere thank you for making our family trip so memorable!
Dan and Jackie have a beautiful cottage! This was the perfect place for my family to go to recharge! They have everything you would need! I am so thankful for the memories we created while kayaking, fishing, swimming, s'mores and more! Their warm welcome started our stay and we booked for next year the next day!! We are already counting the days!
My family loved the cottage, the owner are very nice and caring people. Nice and clean place. The water in a lake is warm and clean, perfect for kids. And fishing is amazing. We had a lot of fun and planning to come back next year.
Our family had a wonderful vacation at this lovely Bankson Lake cottage! The owners provided us with all the necessities for an enjoyable stay plus lots of extras, including kayaks, rowboat and paddle board for fun on the lake. We enjoyed boating, evenings around the fire pit watching the beautiful sunsets, and morning coffee on the patio overlooking the lake. Looking forward to a return trip!
