Nice Place
God place for a short getaway. Not a place for anyone who has trouble walking steep steps
Stayed 3 nights in May 2021

5/5 Excellent

Amazing lakefront cottage!
Perfect place to be outside, enjoy the patio, fire pit and lake views. The cottage was comfortable and clean.

1/5 Terrible

Filthy. Beds/chairs/stairs/kitchen table falling apart. Hair and stains on mattresses and pillows. The bed I slept on in back room if you turned on it even slightly it wobbled like it was going to collapse. Rodents in wall. Caretaker told me it was squirrels on the roof but the sounds were from the walls. When I told him it wasn't the ceiling and was from the walls he stopped replying. Rat traps outside mouse traps and ultrasonic pest repellers in every room indicate they know there is an issue. My wife's parents left after the first night. Only it was my wife's birthday we would have gone home as well. I expected it to be rough around the edges as its a cabin but the place is falling apart. The amount I paid I feel absolutely robbed blind. Never again.

5/5 Excellent

Magical Cottage w/ Plenty to Enjoy
This cottage is charming but has all the amenities and space to really enjoy some time "away". We traveled with our family and there were plenty of beds / bedrooms / bathrooms, the kitchen had everything to make and enjoy full-size meals, and the living spaces were cozy / comfortable. The location is very unique and the views are amazing. Communication w/ the owner was quick and helpful. PS. No need to bring your favorite book, there are plenty of fascinating reads available throughout the cottage!
Stayed 4 nights in Nov 2020

Charming Lake Cabin
We had a wonderful week. The house is charming, clean and COVID safe. The kitchen is well outfitted, with updated appliances. The kitchen seating is a little tight for more than 4 people. In the nicer weather there is lovely outdoor seating by the fire pit. The area has beautiful hiking, and lovely restaurants with outdoor heated socially distanced dining. The lake is lovely and the dock is perfect for sitting and enjoying the stars at night. It’s a perfect throwback cabin with a beautiful screened in porch with a local caretaker who is responsive and helpful.
