    Stress Reducer and Fun
    My family and I stayed at the cottage for only 3 nights, however, they were magical. Everyone who visited was very pleased. As for me, I was able to go kayaking with my daughter and two grandsons (ages 23 and 26), celebrate her birthday with a family gathering and a cake from Love's Heart's Bakery (the best!) and to have a good friend to come to join me for dinner at The Hopkins Inn. Our stay was short, but the layout of the cottage, the way almost everything was provided (like towels), and especially the wrap around porch gave everyone an opportunity to reconnect and to relax in a beautiful setting.

    4/5 Good

    Great House, Lake & Kayaking
    Gorgeous property and lake, suitable for families and groups of friends

    4/5 Good

    Great house
    Our family really enjoyed the house and everything it had to offer

    5/5 Excellent

    Great Family Vacation
    This house was perfect for our family vacation. Our two young boys (age 8 and 10) loved being right on the lake, and we got a lot of use out of the kayaks and paddleboard. The house is on a quiet cove so not many boaters and safe for the kids to swim. And the house was great, we loved the open floor plan, and the deck overlooking the water was a perfect spot to relax with coffee or a book. Several great restaurants nearby, which was a pleasant surprise. Priscilla was easy to communicate with, and she lives nearby in case you need anything.
