If you're looking for a relaxing cottage on a quiet lake you have found it. A row boat is always available and a canoe is available most of the time. The waterfront is rustic as another review mentioned. If you prefer nature such as lilly pads, frogs, and turtles you will love the location. If you want a groomed beach you will want to look elsewhere. The cottage is clean and quiet. You get all the amenities of a house but don't expect granite countertops and flat screen TV's - this is a lake cottage. As pointed out in another review, you may need to bring charcoal and firewood. Pay it forward doesn't always work but we try by leaving some basics (ex., toilet paper, firewood, and beer of course) after our stay. There's no guarantee that's what others leave for you though. If buying a couple of these items is a problem you may want to stay elsewhere.
The reality is - if you want a great getaway that is relaxing and quiet with the basic amenities than this is the cottage for you but if you want a full blown house that is fully updated and a spotless beach than you want to keep looking. People are not renting a $400K house for about $100 a night. For the price of this cottage you are getting more than you are paying for though.
This property was more rustic than expected. We could not use the water front because it was smelly muck with many lilly pads and weeds and the yard was unkept. Inside was not that clean...a snail in the drawer with the sheets, curlers under the bed, and sticky stuff on carpet. In the add, it says they provide charcoal, but upon arrival we were left with an empty bag.
We felt there were empty promises and this ad was misleading.
