Very comfy cottage on a clean & laid-back lake, with quiet neighbours.
Saw a couple motor boats further down the lake, but it was very calm at this end. A shallow soft bottom right out front, with climbing rocks only a 30 second swim/wade away. Very easy to walk in and just plop down in the water. The water gets deeper right past the rocks, which makes for good swimming.
The paddleboat and kayak were invaluable for getting all the way out to investigate the small rock islands in the middle of the lake: they made an excellent destination for lunch and a swim, and were helpful for burning off an embarrassment of cottage snacking. Came upon a big turtle out there, sunning himself in a most inspirational manner.
The cottage itself has plenty of movies and games, and many comfortable spaces to stretch out. Open all the windows and the cross-breezes are wonderful: we hardly noticed the heatwave. In the evenings, a chorus of frogs sang us to sleep. There are two decks, one of which seems practically unknown to the local bugs. It was a very nice spot to enjoy the air and the view from. It has an extendable awning for a little shade, as the cottage and dock have sun for almost the entire day. That said, there is tree cover on the grass if you seek it out, with a fire pit and lots of areas to run around on. We had great views of the stars, and Jupiter was up all week.
In general the kitchen was quite well equipped, but bring a corkscrew!
A great escape!
I just had a brief stay here and loved it! If you want a nice, cozy, chalet-style property then this is for you! The wildlife here is amazing, I was sitting on the deck overlooking the lake and a hummingbird hovered around me just a few feet away! The property owner was very quick and very detailed in all his communication, I will definitely consider this place again.
