Chute Pond Cottage - 150 Feet of Firm Sand Frontage!
Your cottage is on a point. Beautiful sunrises in the morning and relaxing sunsets in the evening. Vacationing on the point gives you the seclusion you deserve. One of your neighbors cottages is so far back it is not visible and the other is visually blocked by a boat house and landscaping. You have the privacy you need to relax.
This 2000 sq foot cottage was built in 1999 and completely remodeled in 2009, by a professional home builder. New flooring in every room, new drywall, newly painted, new hot water heater, new kitchen appliances, new Valley Cabinet cabinets, new doors and trim through out. This cottage has 4 bedrooms. Sleeps 11 comfortably, but can sleep more (13) with air mattresses. A master bedroom with plenty of closet space, personal 1/2 bathroom and a second floor view that brings romance with a candle light night. Bedrooms 2 & 3 each have a full size bed with a full bathroom right outside the door. The 'upper bunk' bedroom is situated on the opposite side of the house for complete privacy. It has 5 twin beds and it's own full bath. Kitchen allows for island seating for up to 10 people, great for groups or games. Family room has the quiet you need to relax or separate from the noise of the kids!
Outside you have a flat approach, the water is a gradual descending from 1 foot to 4 feet in about 40 feet, solid-firm sand and a great board walk. Pan fish and bass hang out by your dock. The kids will enjoy the tree fort-swing set.
Chute Pond is a great lake, do you like fishing, boating, water skiing, tubing, a sand bar where 30-50 boats park on a sunny weekend, streams and places for fish to hide, adventures for the kids with slippery rock and jumping rock , two restaurant/bars on the lake, and live bands playing on the lake. The lake is a 700+ acres with the river. The dam provides guaranteed high water levels. From your cottage you are 300 yards from the ATV trails.

Our family has enjoyed every moment that we have spent on Chute Pond. We have made lasting memories with our 5 daughters. We love the summer and winter - always some lake activity.
The Owner purchased this cottage in 2008
We had very high expectations for our stay at this property. The photos looked beautiful and the owner had great communication prior to our stay. Unfortunately, immediately upon arrival our experience quickly changed. We arrived to find the house locked, with no instructions on how to enter. After several phone calls to the office, we were able to connect with the owner and obtain the code to enter. We immediately came to realize that the house was not wheelchair accessible as it originally stated in the VRBO rental listing. The only room that my mom, who requires a wheelchair, could access was the den area. She was not able to get into the kitchen, bedroom or bathroom via her wheelchair, and there weren’t any handicap accessible features (grab bar by toilet, shower bench, etc). Early in our stay, the septic backed up. After calling the office, we were told the septic would be pumped and to not flush the toilets until they arrived. It ended up being 1pm that they came to pump the septic, meaning 6 adults and 2 young children were unable to use a bathroom during this time. We also had issues with the water heater. The first 2 days of our stay we had ice cold showers. Upon calling the office, a plumber was sent to the house to find a broken part on the water heater and found it to be set at 150 degrees (“dangerously scalding hot for children, elderly, and handicapped”, accordingly to him). Thankfully the water and yard were very nice, as we ended up having to spend the majority of time out of the house due to the accessibility issue. Had this property not been listed as wheelchair accessible, we wouldn’t have booked our stay. Accessibility is not a convenience for our family, it is a necessity. Due to the stairs, narrow doorframes, shower/tub, etc. our vacation was very stressful, frustrating, and disappointing for our family. Our options are very limited when away from home due to our needs, so we expect and trust that information provided is accurate. It is very unfortunate that my family spent the money to stay here based on false advertising. We contacted the owner twice by email to discuss these concerns following our stay, with NO response. This was the same email that they so promptly responded to prior to our stay. The owners have since updated the VRBO listing and removed the “wheelchair accessible” description, proving their initial posting was inaccurate, false and misleading. However, this doesn’t acknowledge or mend our poor experience.
I think this is like the fourth or fifth year we have rented this property. My husband, five children, son in law, 3 grand children, assorted girlfriends and grand-dogs spend a week together in this home every year. We always have plenty to do, water sports, swimming, puzzle building, and book reading.
The place is always clean and comfortable.
We love the Lakewood area and the location of this house was great! Very clean and spacious house-lots of room for me, my six kids, and my daughter's boyfriend. Have rented through VRBO for years and this is the best furnished house we have rented. Great lake view from the house, nice level yard, restaurant a short walk away and another one right across the lake. My girls liked "Jumping Rock". Fish were not cooperating the week we were there, but other than that, nothing but positive things to say about this place!
Every year my husband, kids, grand kids come together for a week. For the last few years we have come here. It is wonderful. I can read from my hamock, while the kids play in the water. The house is always clean and well maintained.I can't thnk the owners enough for allowing us to make memories in there home.
Few cabins can comfortably sleep a big group like we had (9 people, 5 adults 4 kids) but this cabin was perfect for it! Fully feature packed, clean, and gorgeous view of the lake that looks like a mirror most days. The wifi is not very good, for those who are hoping for a good connection, as it is DishNet (satellite) - I was hoping for a good connection to get more work done, but had to drive quite a ways to get good wifi. Kids LOVED fishing off the dock, and slippery rock, jumping rock, and the sand bar. The heated outdoor shower is fantastic, but we usually forgot to use it!
One of the best vacations I had all summer. The house was roomy, well kept, and right on the water so we could fish / swim in our own back yard. We didn't pack much food since we always seem to bring everything back home so we ate at Kitty's every night. Excellent burgers, Steak, and Pizza and it's in walking distance so we didn't have to drive. Also took the boat to two other bars on the lake to check them out. One day we went tubing down the river, stopped at a small winery, and checked out the Casino. All around good time.
