5/5 Excellent

Great property with even better hosts, Paul was very easy to communicate with. The cabin is in a nice relaxing location, the shoreline is very shallow, but the water was clean and sandy bottom - great for swimming. We would definitely recommend this property.

Great, place, lake and location
The property was a great cottage with nice amenities. We loved to be able to work a little and play a little. It's a nice touch also to have a pontoon available for rent as well. The owners were very responsive and live close by if anything would be needed.

Lake place
Unfortunately had to go for a funeral, but this place was very homey. Rented a pontoon from T&C pontoon rentals. They are not on the lake, but delivered it to our dock. Lake is shallow, so keep an eye on your boat motor trim. I would stay there again, if they have openings.

great spot!
we loved the view, yard, and dock/water access. construction next door was a little annoying but not too bad. the house itself was stocked, comfortable, and spacious.
