About Steve or Ann
Third generation military family living in SC and GA. I recently retired from the Air Force but still work on base. Additionally, we operate several small businesses in SC and GA.
Steve or Ann purchased this Cabin in 1954
Why Steve or Ann chose Nevis
My Grandparents vacationed on Mantrap while stationed in Minneapolis during the early 1950's. They purchased a very small hunter cabin and the property in 1954. The cabin was then rotated so the kitchen window looked out onto the lake and additions were added over the years. First was the bedroom and indoor plumbing. Thank you Grandaddy! (Outhouse is still usable) The dining area and half bath were added in the 1970's. I as a child spent every summer at the cabin and my kids spent many summers there as well. When I fully retire I will be able to return more often but for now I have to work.
What makes this Cabin unique
We have great fishing just off the dock. Both Northern Pike and Muskie have been caught from the dock. We have a large metal live well cage in the garage you are welcome to use. I have always loved listening to the Loons and watching for deer. There are even two American Bald Eagle nests between the cabin and the public boat landing. Oh, there is a map of the lake on the porch! Up until a few years ago we only had 1 TV channel, we now have DirecTV. Cell phone coverage in the cabin is improved by a repeater antenna but service is still spotty, texting seems to work best. Out on the water away from iron deposits and trees there is plenty of service.

Love this cute lake home. Very private and well cared for. We have been here before and hoped to visit again in the future!
Most beautiful place ever
Beautiful cabin right on Mantrap. Private and quiet. Private lane, no traffic.Cabin is clean and adorable. Best little piece of paradise ever.
Very clean and comfortable. Kids loved the beach and catching fish off the dock. We had a wonderful week.
We have stayed at a lot of lake homes, but this one is the best of them all!!
What a wonderful place!! The beautiful sights and sounds were amazing. Not to mention the comfort of the lake home and the peace we felt deep down inside as we entered the home. Ann was so sweet as she called us to make sure we made it there ok and also to let us know that we were welcome to use anything there, as well as make the house feel completely our own to enjoy.
We definately would stay here again if she ever has an opening! Yep, the people who have stayed come back year after year.

Peace and quiet
Beautiful well cared for home on Mantrap Lake. All the amenities you will need. On a nice quiet bay, private property and dock. Wonderful gas fireplace for the cool mornings. Owner called us first day to make sure everything was ok! What a nice thing to do. We stayed 2 weeks and we will be staying 2 weeks again next year. Loon, Otters with a family, eagles, osprey and deer were just some of the wildlife we saw. We found our place of heaven. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home.
