Three day getaway at Sunset Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

How can you go wrong. Beautiful weather, the cottage, deck and patio are perfect for relaxing. The renovated dock is a big improvement, and a great place to hang out. This was our third stay here, and we hope to return.

Loving this location

First time renting the cottage, but we have rented the house before and loved everything about the cottage. The cottage is perfect for a little family or a couple for a nice get away. Had such a blast here. Planning our next years trip already. Thank you so much for helping us make awesome memories with our little families.

Sunset lovers dream location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this quaint cottage. The views from the dining room and living room was one of our favorite parts of our stay. We could enjoy the view of the lake from indoors on rainy days and still feel like we were out by the lake. Watching the sunrises and the sunsets from the dock was very peaceful and we enjoyed the various bird life all around us. This is a perfect getaway if you are in need of some down time and just want to relax and be around the quiet. We stayed during late fall so we did not do much outdoors but there is the potential to enjoy so much outside.

The beds are very comfortable and I actually slept better here then I have in a long time in my own home. The new shower remodel was enjoyable as it is designed well for tall people. Sometimes that is very hard to find.

We will be returning to rent this cottage again. The owners are very accommodating and care about any concerns you may have.

Thank you for opening up your cottage and sharing it with us.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay at our cottage! The bed is a modern memory foam type mattress that renters have described as a "dream" to sleep on and I'm glad you liked it. We are currently updating our kitchen with a stone counter and a breakfast bar area between the kitchen and living room area. We also just ordered a fireplace insert for chilly nights. We look forward to hosting you again when its warmer and you can enjoy all the upgrades and take the canoe out on the lake! Best, Susan and Jon

Hidden Gem!

  • 5 of 5

A perfectly situated cottage with everything needed for a perfect get-away! The house cute, well furnished, and the surroundings quiet. We spent most of the daytime canoeing on the lake and the evenings on the front porch watching the sun set over the lake. Will be back for sure!
