We will always remember our wedding at the lake - your lake house was perfect for our family. Grandparents, my sisters and their kids were very comfortable. The warm, natural feeling was amazing...

Summer Quality Family time at the Lake House

  • 5 of 5

Thank You Jerry, My family and our dog spent some much needed quality family time at your large 6 bedroom lake house. We swam in the warm lake with all the kids as the water was so beautiful off the dock. The kids paddled around the lake and found the turtles and caught a few fish which we grilled on the bbq. The large deck was very handy as we read books and ate all of our meals outside as the weather was sunny all week. We really appreciated the large groomed yard to play baseball and soccer. Thank You again for the R&R. We will be back in the winter to enjoy the skating and skiing.

Great place for a large group

  • 4 of 5

It was perfect for our families. Very clean and had everything we needed to keep the kids busy. It was close to town but still felt like you were at a cabin.

Great location on a nice small lake

  • 4 of 5

We came for a fishing trip in early June. The cottage itself was great - nice and big, well outfitted (2 coffee makers for 6 guys was a nice touch) and clean. As far as the grounds go, to get out to the dock you have to walk over some wobbly wood planks one of which had a rusty nail sticking out of it. The owner was very easy to deal with and he is super prompt in replying to emails.

Clean and modern, very nice!

  • 4 of 5

Loved the property. The location was great, close enough to town but also far enough away! Inside the property was clean, modern and it had everything you need to relax and get away from everything if you need. Nice large deck overlooking the lake with a beautiful sunrise coming over the mountains each morning, and the price was great also. The only negative I have about the property is how much the beds creaked and groaned every time we moved. The beds are the only reason I'm not able to give this a 5* review. Everything else was spot on and will happily go back in the future.

Winter fun with the family

  • 5 of 5

The road up to the property was plowed and safe for driving. The cabin was gorgeous inside and out, very clean and nicely decorated. The kids loved tobogganing and skating on the lake - there were endless activities for the whole family. We all brought our snowshoes and went on some adventurous walks around the lake. The bunk beds were fun and perfect for our kids, and the master bed was very comfortable. The property is very natural and the whole family enjoyed experiencing all of the wildlife there - woodpeckers, blue jays and deer to name a few of the critters we saw. We built a fire every night as there was endless firewood that was cut and ready for us to use. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed and more - the kids absolutely loved eating at the rustic log dinner table. The barbecue on the deck worked perfectly and my husband enjoyed cooking us steak and veggies on it for dinner. Netflix was a great way end to the day and relax before bed. We took so many pictures and made such wonderful memories - we will definitely be back and recommend this cabin to any family that is looking for a fun, natural vacation spot.
