Huddleston Cottage Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom Cottage Tucked In The Forest On A Private Cove. Sleeps 4

The LaSota Cottage offers flexible accommodations for up to four people. Located at the end of a cove and surrounded by woods, the house offers a quiet location far from boat noise on the lake.

The water depth below the private dock is six feet and includes space to moor your boat. Bringing your boat into the dock requires some gentle maneuvering, but once you have pulled up, your boat is protected from the wakes of passing boats. On the other side of the dock is a, safe swimming area at end of the cove.

The primary living space on the main floor includes three bedrooms (queen, full and bunk beds) and a full bathroom. The fully equipped kitchen is open to the living room and dining area, and the large deck with views of the lake and forest. Cable TV service is available on all the televisions in the home, including the flat-screen TV in the living room, TVs in three of the bedrooms and the TV in the lower level family room.

The lower level is accessed via a separate exterior entrance and is a great place for kids to get away to play foosball and table hockey, or to relax in front of the television. The lower level has a galley kitchen, laundry facilities, a bathroom with a shower, and a bedroom with a queen bed.

Lovely Lake House

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay at the lake house. It's small, but in a cozy way, and you can't beat the peace and quiet of the cove. The property managers were quick to answer questions and couldn't have made our stay any better!

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

Very enjoyable stay, we went off season so it was very quiet and relaxing. The only restaurant open close via boat was Heaths restaurant, good food. We mainly booked here because it was pet friendly and you couldn't tell that other dogs had been there, no odors. Rented pet friendly boat from Bridgewater. Loved the kitchen and bathroom updates.There is a fire pit near the house with fire wood and chairs set up around it. Horseshoes, paddle boats, boat dock, plenty to do. Downstairs is set up for more guests, loved that bonus with game tables and its own bathroom & kitchen, we would love to bring our grown children with us next year.

Very quiet and well appointed, perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a summer week with our 2 dogs. We were looking for a quiet, relaxing area and this was it. The property manager answered all my questions leading up to our stay. He was there to replace an umbrella which was damaged prior to our arrival. The house was exactly as pictured and no surprises. I forgot my favorite pan and it was returned to me immediately. We were very happy with our experience.

Excellent vacation home - will definitely return!

  • 5 of 5

This property is beautiful and very well maintained. We encountered no difficulties with anything during our stay - everything was in good working order, the rooms were clean, and the amenities were exactly as advertised. The cove is quiet and peaceful and the deck and dock were lovely. My kids and I give this vacation home our highest recommendation!

The house was lovely. The setting in the woods and in a calm cove was ideal. Our purpose was to allow one adult and 2 high school graduate boys to put in their kayaks and fish and just play around on the dock and in the water with their kayaks all day. That we accomplished! Having previously owned a condo on the opposite side of the lake, I was a little turned around in my directions. However, the boys really enjoyed their time at the lake. Everything was neat and in good order. I was a little disappointed in the downstairs separate apartment. It was a little too much "basement looking" from what I expected. It had the look and feel of a basement. I guess I expected it to look more like a finished basement than it did. Overall we were very pleased with our week at LaSota Cottage.
