Styled in classic lake decor, experience the best of Lake Life at Pretty Lake.

      Great Family Vacation

      Nice clean lake with sandy beach and swimming area. Plenty of chairs down at the beach and lots of floats for the kids. Kayaks and paddle board was great. The steps were great for a little exercise. Well-stocked kitchen with all that we needed. Mattresses and bedding could use an upgrade.

        Great Cottage and Lakefront fun!

        We had a wonderful stay at this Cottage! The walk down to the beach was always fun and we loved waking up to the beautiful lake every morning. Our children loved playing I'm a little Beach and had so much fun in the nice clean water! The neighbors were all very friendly and it was fun to walk around the area as well. We would highly recommend this rental!

          Great Place!

          The cottage is great, very private (Felt like we had the whole lake to ourselves during the week) with a wonderful swimming area for young children. It is shallow and sandy bottom and has great fishing. We brought our fishing boat and caught pike, bass, and plenty of bluegill during the week. Cottage was well appointed with everything you need and Karen is wonderful to work with. Our daughter already wants to go back next year. Just book it, you won’t regret it!!
