      A hidden cottage

      Due to the pandemic, we were looking for a cottage close to home. This filled the bill perfectly. Loved looking at the lake every morning, and during the recent heat spell there was always a cool breeze. Chris had the property looking good and the fact that it was fenced in for the dog was a plus. The beach down the street is great. Lake could be cleaner, but that's certainly not the owner's fault. We had a really good stay.

        Cute property

        Nice rustic property in cute location right on the lake. Adults and kids loved it and had a great time. We will be back

          Always a Relaxing and enjoyable time!!

          This lakefront cottage is perfect. Right on the water, the sunsets are beautiful and there was plenty of room inside for at least six people! Fishing is great. Very clean and well kept. We had a blast!

            Everyone but Grandma caught fish.

            Everything was very good . Myself, Wife, Daughter & 3 Grandsons had a great time. Cottage is very pleasant and homey except the double bed was uncomfortable for my wife and I. Owner very accessable & friendly.

              Beautiful cottage and lake!

              This property was great. We had lots of fun relaxing on the dock, visiting with family and kayaking. Chris made sure we had everything we needed. Thank you !
