beautiful spot but property was misrepresented
The good: Beautiful lake. Clean water. Great fishing. Lake not too busy with other boats. Perfect for water sports like skiing, tubing and fishing. The property lakefront is very nice. Great dock and raft. Stone steps down to the water. Water started out shallow and got progressively deeper beyond the dock. Good for kids of any age to swim. The bottom was rocky/sandy, not the mush you find in some spots. For the most part the cottage was fine inside. Small but clean and comfortable. The bad: The lakefront is shared by everyone in the 3 cottages on the property. When we arrived there were around 20 people by the lake not counting us. Parking was really bad. At first we couldn't find a spot. Later we were blocked in several times and couldn't leave. Turns out the owner also rents out the dock to a waterski charter boat which explained some of the crowd and the bad parking. They typically did around 3 charters a day with different people. We were also surprised to find out that the lower room of the cottage (ping pong table, laundry & half bath) was shared by all 3 cottages and the charter crew+guests. This area was really in bad shape. Water on the floor constantly from a leak in the bathroom. Moldy toilet paper. Old moldy food in a fridge. Overall the outside of the property was not kept up well. Some trash and construction supplies around the edges. Lawn hadn't been mowed in a while -- had many of those little white flowers that attract bees. Three in our party were stung on the feet just walking to the lake. There is no driveway down to the cottages so expect long walks up and down the hill to bring your stuff in and out. We were never provided any keys to the property so couldn't lock the doors when we went out on the lake. The cottage doesn't really sleep 7 unless you have 2 couples that sleep together. One in our group had to sleep on the couch the whole trip. The only place to eat as a group indoors was the screened-in porch. On good days this was tight but a nice spot overlooking the lake. However, we had 2 very rain days and the rain came right in and soaked this room.
