Trip to the Chick

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay at the house everything was clean and we had everything we needed. this was my 3rd trip to the Chick and have stayed here all three times and plan on coming back and staying here again. Its close to the lake and easily excisable. The owners are very nice folks and looking forward to my next stay.

The cottage was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was exactly what i was hoping for. It was close to several boat ramps. It had a nice circular drive with plenty of room to pull a boat around the house. The house was very clean and had everything provided that you could ask for. Overall, it was fantastic.
