Great cabin with plenty of space. The front patio is a lovely area with lounges and hot tub with views of the lake everywhere. Backyard for our pooch is awesome.

water level

  • 3 of 5

We had a lot of trouble with the amount of stairs.The water level was so bad,we hit a sand bar in the middle that destroyed the prop.The weeds are so thick that you cant fish at all.We had no problems with the house or the owner.Tvs worked good,but We didnt drive that far to watch TV.The water level was so low you could walk across the entire bay.

Owner's Response: Yes, the water level is low again this year as discussed with the guest when they inquired about being able to dock their boat at the cabin. We started out with the lake level being 2 feet higher than last summer and received only a little rain with the thunderstorms. There are stairs in the cabin as discussed with the guest ahead of time.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Rustic cottage with a alot of stair climing

If you are prone to acute mountain sickness ( I did'nt know I was) just keep

that in mind.

Cottage is in pretty good shape the view is awesome!!!

Dennis is a great guy....Jonny on the spot with any questions

TV did not work but I didnt go there to watch TV

probably could have figured it out but really didnt care

Bumper pool table is more table than bumper pool but oh well

The private dock is not really maintained well but it works

Overall had a great time.... just beware of AMS.. no fault to the owners

Amazing stay at Boulder Bay Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and family loved staying at Boulder Bay Cottage! It is a very beautiful and calm area and the lake and its views were amazing and the home was lovely. Even though we were not able to use the batoon boat, the kayaks were fun to use and the fire place, jacuzzi and grill were a plus! The owners made sure to answer our questions quickly and made everything super easy. Overall, great stay I wiuld totally recommend it to anyone!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was well kept and spacious. Definetly would like to do it again some time soon. Great for entertainment or if you just want a romantic night with your significant other. Lake was beautiful with all the snow as well as the view of the mountains from the bedroom window. Just an awesome stay.
