Charming cottage

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this cozy cottage right on the water. Nice fire pit for night time fires. Enjoyed kayaking around some of the lake- The lake is very big! We thought we would take day trips for sight seeing, but this was such a nice spot we spent all of our time right at the cottage enjoying the lake.

Great owners! Great neighbors! Great property!

  • 5 of 5

Otsego Lake and the cabin was a perfect getaway for the family. We have 2 small children that enjoyed themselves immensely, spending time playing with the other kids around and fishing with the neighbors. The cabin was clean and well maintained. The owner Lynne was extremely friendly. Right across the street you can rent pontoons and jet skis at a reasonable price. Nothing negative to say about our stay!

Beautiful location on lake

  • 4 of 5

Nice, clean cabin within 30 feet of water. A great time playing on the water and meeting many people in neighboring cabins. A great getaway vacation for us from Texas. We wouldn't hesitate to book again. Thanks Dan Pichan family!!

This cottage was a cute little place for the 4 of us in our family. The kids enjoyed the bunk beds and having thier "own" room. Our room allowed us to see the lake from bed. The front room on the water was very nice. We enjoyed sitting there each morning and evening to view the water. The cottage was decorated to feel like we were home. The sheets were crisp and clean bedding overall. The water for swimming was a bit muck like after the dock to where the kids wanted to float only as to not touch it. The home is very close to both neighbors so you have to not mind that part and enjoy saying hello etc. My negative feedback is that the oven was not working properly (got too hot and burned things too fast), the freezer was dripping all over our food inside the fridge, there were not enough towels for a week stay and a few travel size supplies in the bathroom would have been a nice touch. There was not a toaster and the coffee pot was only a 4 pot - these things just make it feel less "convenient" compared to other places we have rented. But... overall - we would go back again but we did feel we would rather try another place.
