Very cozy. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

The main thing I noticed other than being very clean....... was the comfortable furniture. It was a huge relief to have the comfort of home. I will be back.

Very dirty, spider webs everywhere

  • 3 of 5

The cottage was larger than we expected and decorated cute, but so full of spiders and spider webs, even my 9 year old asked to clean the next day. We were there three weeks and the owners did not schedule any cleaning so we asked for cleaning supplies and were given an old mop, 409 and paper towel. For what we paid we were expecting better

Owner's Response: It is never good when our guests are not happy with the accommodations. The house had been professionally cleaned hours before their arrival. Unfortunately, our guests did not bring this to our attention. If they had, we would have had the cleaning crew back to address the issues. Our guests did stay for three weeks, cleaning is done prior to arrival, but not during their stay. There are cleaning supplies on site, but our guests asked for more. The specific items they requested were promptly delivered. Our guests appeared to be enjoying their stay when I was by to check. We will continue to work to make our guests stay as enjoyable as possible and we are sorry your stay did not meet your expectations. Bill

Relaxing lakefront experience

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the lake house and would definitely return. It was so relaxing I did not want to leave! I am not a big fan of the sulfur water but I am told that many of the lakefront cottages have sulfur water, it's a small price to pay to be directly on the lake.
