Our goal at Secord Memories is just that- we want you to take your own memories back home with you!
The setup of our place is very unique, it has the main cottage and a bonus detached bunkhouse. One could say it's a two for one! Both places are newly decorated in modern décor.
The cottage has a fully stocked kitchen, Direct tv satellite in the living room, master bedroom with queen sized bed plus second bedroom has a full bed and a twin. All towels and linens are provided. The cottage sleeps six ( an addition twin bed is located in the footstool in living room) In the kitchen is a frig with water and ice located on the door, dishwasher ,stove and microwave. All pots and pans, dishes and utensils included. All you have to bring is your food. The second bedroom has a DVD TV, and a few family movies . Please bring along any others you might want to watch. For your comfort the place has central heat and AC. You will find a full bath in the cottage. There is no land line phone but a brand new cell tower less than a mile away.
The bunkhouse, which is located directly behind the cottage sleeps six. It has two futons and a set of double bunk beds, a kitchenette and a half bath. A TV with a DVD player and a PS2 including many games is in the bunkhouse for our guests to use .
The laundry room can be found in this area too, along with an ironing board and iron. Inside this building is a storage area which is open to our guests. Three bicycles and many fishing poles along with family outside games are located here. Plus, if you find the need , a workbench with basic tools is available to you. This building also has a furnace and a window air conditioner for your comfort. You will find a half bath located in the bunkhouse.
Outside to enjoy our wonderful views we have supplied a gas grill and two picnic tables and a fire pit for campfires.We have added a swing so you can relax and enjoy the breath taking views of Secord Lake. To get into the Secord fun you will have full use of a 21 foot pontoon boat with a 9.9 trolling motor, a 4 seater paddle boat(life jackets supplied) plus dock space to bring your own boat. Secord Memories is a waterfront home located on 90 miles of Secord Lake. That's a lot of miles to bank those memories! One of the favorite spots on the lake are the shallow areas . Boats normally anchor the boats and spend hours swimming, playing water games and meeting others. It's a great time for all! For our guests that enjoy walks , the road views are just as pretty as the water views. Hunters will be thrilled that state land can be found just 3 miles from Secord Memories.
We have been working very hard to improve the landscape and hope our guests are as pleased as we are with the results.
Please join us and be prepared to take your own memories home.
Memories always keep us in touch !

Secord Memories is all about Memories to cherish with your family. We love this place. Our family had so much fun here. The grandsons went fishing every morning and every night with grandpa. Catching bass, pike and more bass. The twin granddaughters loved the new sand area in front. Spent hours playing in the sand and swimming. The paddle boat was used all the time. The grandsons used it every day. Fishing off the dock was so much fun for all the grandchildren.
A campfire at night was something everyone enjoyed. Beautiful sunsets. Grammy and Papa loved the bunkhouse away from all the grandchildren. Ha, Ha, Ha!!!!! You don't need to worry about anything because everything is there for you.
Sherry and John are the greatest!!! Can't wait till next year. Time went by toooo fast.
Thank you for the wonderful review and for allowing us to be included in making your family memories.
I loved watching your grandchildren play everyday,the smiles and laughter will remain in my memories of your visit.
We look forward to see all of you next summer.

Just like always we loved every minute. From the new sand on the beach to the new paddle boat to swimming in the rain another unforgettable vacation at Secord Memories. The fishing was again great. We had the best fish fry. My little granddaughter said, "No go home." There was nothing missing in either cabin. Sherry and John are great hosts.We love the river and enjoy the cruising to get an ice cream cone. So relaxing. We are booked for next year!
Thank you for the very kind words. I look forward every year to see you and your family. I enjoy listening to their laughter as they play in the sand and swim. Your grandchildren are very well mannered. The strong love certainly shows in your family. Such a pleasure to be able to call you friends. Thank you

Thank you for the wonderful compliments. I would also like to thank you for taking such great care of Secord Memories during your visit. We have been so blessed with so many wonderful caring families like yours since we started renting. We look forward to meeting new people but cherish our repeat guests.

The property was very nice, upgraded with all the comforts of home.
We had a great week at the lake house. Lots of extras that you don't usually get with a rental. Baggies, tin foil, plastic wrap; doesn't sound like much but when you don't have it is a big deal. We usually travel with these items. The boat rental was great. Having a boat available for use was over the top. Overall great place, great time. Plus John and Sherry were great people making sure we knew what we were getting into, right from the beginning and making sure we had everything we needed while we were there. Prefect trip!
Hi David and Family,
Thank you so much for the wonderful review. We enjoyed meeting you and your family.
I like to let our guests know that the week of July 4rth can get busy on Secord Lake .
It wasn't to bad this year with the holiday being in the middle of the week.
We are so thrilled to hear that you felt so comfortable at Secord Memories. We try very hard to think of the *little* things.
John and Sherry
Perfect, Just what we needed in a vacation.
If you want to relax, this is the place! We did some fishing, did some swimming, did some walking around, did some bike riding, did some kayaking, paddle boating. Weather was okay, it rained but did not stop from enjoying the water. Waiting to book again.
Thanks for the wonderful review. We try to supply toys to entertain our guests. I am so sorry the weather wasn't better for your visit. We enjoyed seeing your family again this year.
