Contemplative and peaceful escape from the "real world" right on a small idyllic pond. Ideal for a couples escape or quiet family getaway. Leave your cell phone and other electronics behind and enjoy this wonderfully appointed cottage with Japanese influences. Available beginning Memorial Day for only a minimum of a two night stay. Firepit, canoe and kayak available. Will sleep 4 but not ideal for young children. Futons and woven floor mats, interesting artwork and gorgeous lakefront setting make this a place you will want to return to again. Flexible check in/out, truly a wonderful place of peace. Come to write, paint, contemplate nature, renew your vows or just enjoy the beauty of the lake, trees, wildlife and discover your inner peace at Stone Turtle House.

I will not use VRBO again, but not because of the house. I always leave a house the way I found it. The $75 cleaning fee should only be for people who do not clean. Also, I would have liked an email saying that the $300 broken something fee was refunded. I know nothing was broken but that doesn't mean that some owners won't try to get that money.
I used VRBO a few years ago and found it to be fair and reasonable. I no longer am if that opinion.
A Place to Return To
Our second year staying here and it is a place we just keep wanting to return to. Simplicity makes it more relaxing. Listening to the loons (and watching them), frogs, turtles, fish, paddleboarding among the lily pads at 7am. Ice cream at the general store. Thanks to April for being there for any questions and to the owner for creating and maintaining such a special place.
We really liked staying at the house. It feels very private and has everything you could possibly need. The sleeping mats aren't super comfortable, but the loft is really cool place to sleep. Overall a great place to stay and unwind!
Tranquil retreat, both indoors and out
Lovely cottage, exactly as described and photographed.
Quite easy to locate and ample directions provided by April, as well.
Cozy, NOT cramped with plenty of necessities for cooking, etc.and terrific use of space; appealing aesthetic...
Water pressure is capricious , including unpredictable bursts of noise and changes, BUT , it is sufficient for any needs and the shower is perfect!
The shelves of reading material are fantastic.
Delighted that April provides socks especially just for indoors -- so helpful!
Easy access to many scenic routes, e.g. for hiking, leaf-peeping, etc. Enjoyed canoeing all around the pond with my adult daughter.
Neighbors quiet and pleasant.
The futons ( mat style, not mattress style ) may be an obstacle for folks not used to such, but we (4) were fine.
Would happily return 😊
Peaceful and Relaxing
I couldn't have been happier with our experience here. Plenty of space for me and my grown children. The pond is quiet and peaceful, the home decorated with lovely Japanese collections. April and Steve could not have been more gracious and helpful. Everything went smoothly and we would definitely stay here again.
Quaint cottage in a fantastic location
Had a blast staying in this cool little cottage located right on a lake.
