Bring your family and friends to this beautiful, spacious, family-friendly cottage on a full recreation lake that is just the right size. Our family has enjoyed it for over 12 years with kids from birth to 18 years old enjoying it year-round. The cottage is fully equipped with everything you need to create memories that last a lifetime.
The lake is about 280 acres, spring-fed and is perfect for many activities. Sailing, swimming, tubing and fishing are our favorites, but we also love the quiet morning kayak, canoe and pedal boat rides. “Cocktail hour” cruises in a pontoon are also fun! In the evenings, we enjoy telling ghost stories and having s’mores around the fire pit-stocked with fire wood for your use. There is also room in the yard for cook-outs and yard games for your family to enjoy.
Kids of all ages will enjoy swimming in the shallow water right off of the pier or off of the floating platform just past the private pier. The sand is soft, but not too soft, and the kids love to watch the minnows swim and feed the ducks that like to come near the pier.
The cottage is fully furnished, air conditioned, smoke-free and has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It is 1500 square feet and sleeps 8-10 comfortably in beds. Enjoy time away with just your family or bring some other couples or another family to spend time with. Bring your favorite board games, or enjoy a large variety of games that are available for you to use.
The décor is comfortable and casual, with a bit of a nautical theme. You’ll love just relaxing in the front room with a beautiful view of the lake or outside on the patio in the mornings and playing cards or games in the evening. There are two TV’s in the cottage with a dish system so you won’t miss the big game or your favorite shows.
Cooking (and eating!) is always more fun on vacation and you will love spending time in this open-concept kitchen. The kitchen is large enough to make a big meal, if you want to, with a table that seats 10. Plus, there is another table near it on the porch. It has all of the amenities of home including all large appliances, including a dishwasher, a coffee maker and microwave. Don’t worry about pots, pans, silverware and cookware. If you need to do a little laundry when you are there, a washing machine and dryer are in the basement as well. It’s all there, including a spectacular view of the lake!
Two of the bedrooms are ready for couples and have queen size beds. The third bedroom can either be used for 2 more couples or the kids-it’s complete with one double/twin bunk bed and another double bed. All linens, towels, and blankets are included. The nautical theme is relaxing and fun. Two full-baths allow for plenty of space for all guests to get ready for their activities comfortably.
We have used our family cottage for many years, enjoying seeing the kids learn to swim, fish, tube and ski. The location is wonderful and the lake is big enough to do the activities we like, but small enough that you're not constantly competing for space. Our family has grown and gotten closer because of 'Hour Get-A-Way'!
Anne purchased this cottage in 2003
This property was perfect for us because the location is great, with many nearby attractions, the size of the cottage is not too big but not too small for our family and friends, and because the lake is the perfect size and type for us. We get the feeling of being far away from the day-to-day stresses but we don't have to travel for hours to get up North. Just being there relaxes us immediately.
We just love how cozy and comfortable our cottage is. There is space for us to split up and spend time alone reading, relaxing or watching TV, yet when we want to play games, cards, or have a fire-pit together, we can do that too. As soon as we get there, we suddenly forget about the stress and worry of 'real life' and we relax and get back to what's most important our family.
Our family just completed our THIRD vacation at the Brunette's beautiful cottage. It comfortably accommodated three grandparents, two parents, and three children ages seven, six, and four. The washer and dryer was very helpful with the activities of three children, and the central air conditioning was appreciated during the hot/humid August days and nights. Our son (children's father) is an avid fisherman and caught many perch everyday, which was exciting for him as well as the children. The sunsets are beautiful and were followed by campfires. The children loved feeding the ducks, and they developed a special relationship with one they named "Violet" who enjoyed the oats and peas the children fed her daily. The shallow water around the pier is ideal for the children's ages and swimming abilities, and they truly enjoyed much water play. The large kitchen was perfect for the many cooks in the kitchen and for family seating around the farmhouse-sized table. Most importantly, the lake is not busy or noisy like other lakes we have visited in the area: the cottage property and lake are truly peaceful and relaxing. Communication with the owners was prompt and courteous. We will definitely be returning! Casey from Milwaukee.
We had a wonderful time this cottage. It is very well maintained and clean. We played in the lake daily and family game time ended our evenings after gorgeous sunsets and s'mores. Thank you so much for sharing this little slice of heaven!
Perfect in every way! Anne provides for all your needs...feels very much like home...only better! The lake was clean, very quiet and, again...perfect! We had 6 adults and 3 children and it was very comfortable. I'll never forget all the fun and giggles from my grandsons! Thank you Anne!
Our family have a great vacation at your place! The accommodations and location was perfect for us.
Thanks! We would recommend the cottage to others looking and will definitely consider it for future visits!
The cottage was simply perfect! Comfortable, roomy, great layout. The furniture in the main living room is so comfortable! The pictures do not do this place justice and the lake was great. Large enough to jet ski and tube but not over crowded. Can't wait to go back!
This cabin was a perfectly lovely place to vacation. It was furnished with everything a vacationing family could need. It was clean, spacious and comfortable. The location is wonderful. The lake was super for fishing, kayaking and tubing, but not so big that it attracted large loud boats. The evenings were quiet and sunsets were beautiful. We even saw a loon! We highly recommend this cabin.
