Charlie is great! And the cabin is fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice owner! Great Lake. Nice dock, amazing deck, nice cabin, we had a wonderful time and can't wait to go back! I'm reluctant to give such good praise because I don't want everyone else booking this place! 😊

A vacation within a vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had planned a quick weekend retreat from the business of life for the wife and I, yet wanted to make certain that our kids had an enjoyable time as well. This place turned out to be ideal! It has a very cozy beach house feel with two comfortable bedrooms. The view of the lake was fantastic. Despite it raining for the bulk of the Saturday, the day was not diminished in the slightest as we watched the raindrops form intricate patterns on the lake's surface. While that was exactly what the wife and I needed, the kids found the separate bunk house to be an amazing extra. They had a place of their own, but within easy reach of us. They loved the "tiny house" feel that the bunk house has to offer. Both come with that great view of the lake and the quiet that comes with late fall days. We enjoyed our time here immensely and would recommend it.

Cramped & not that clean

  • 2 of 5

The cottage location is fantastic, right on Clear Lake with a dock and a lovely deck. The space, though, in both the upper and lower buildings is very cramped and full of furniture and belongings you can't really use.

I would say it was hard to tell, really, how clean the place was because of all the stuff and the poor lighting in the bathroom. It got hot during the day b/c it's mostly in the sun, so we opened windows at night and the window ledges were full of dust balls, dead bugs, etc.

Also there's no wifi and the phone reception is very spotty, so you really are disconnected.

It was a good price and the owner was very responsive and friendly, but I don't think I'd select it again.

Owner's Response: Wow, after you said everything was fine and your sister said it was great on your text messages I thought you had a different opinion of the cottage. I wish you would have told me about the issues you had . If you look at our reviews, we have a lot of 5 star reviews.

Really really nice time I would go back again

  • 4 of 5

Very clean lake house, beautiful view, nice deck, tv,air conditioner, canopy ON the deck, really enjoyed THE fire pit, nice furniture, the one thing we couldn't do because of our age was all of the stairs to get to the lake house but other than that we would go back again even though the stairs were a little rough

Owner's Response: Thank You Debra, so glad you enjoyed your stay. Sorry about the many stairs, that's the sacrifice when your cottage is one of the closest to the water.

Clean and inviting!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very comfortable and super clean. It had everything we needed for our stay. Charlie was very helpful as well. We would definitely stay again.

Just a heads up for future guests, the driveway is very steep so it would be difficult to park more than two cars in the driveway although you could park along the road if you wanted.

Home is on a beautiful location. Property is well kept. Only concern is the driveway is steep, comin

  • 4 of 5

Owner is very nice and easy to contact with any questions. Only issue we had was the driveway is steep. Our car was too low to go down without scrapping the bottom. Parked at the top which wasn't an issue.
