3 days with adult kids

  • 4 of 5

the cottage was very nice, roomy and mostly up to date. large kitchen very nice. over all clean with modern appliances. we brought our boat and it would have been easier for my wife to enter and exit the boat if there was a dock the ground was very slick by the water a little dangerous. we would rent this cottage again and would recommend it to others.

great channel lakehouse

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in July and had a great stay. Big home and plenty of room. Big deck and a great fishing backyard. The place is clean and plenty of room for cars in front.

We will be back!

Beautiful lake and well maintiained affordable lake house!

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderfully taken care of with a big open kitchen which made for easy gathering and mealtimes. The location on the channel is peaceful but just off the lake sandbar when you are ready to get out on the water. The only downsides were the charcoal grill (with no charcoal provided) and the lack of wood for the wonderful bonfire pit right outside the back door (we had to go to several gas stations to find some wood). All in all it was a great experience and would certainly recommend to anyone looking for a great lake getaway!

Great Family Spot!

  • 5 of 5

My family from around the country had gathered to celebrate my father's life. The house was great for hosting so many people. The kitchen is spacious and more than functional. The back deck was huge and a great spot to gather, grill and hang out. Our group ranged from 10 to 81 and the property's amenities were accessible to all. The lake is excellent for cruising or recreating. I don't think the property can be beat for price and convenience of scheduling.
