A wonderful Get Away
We had a wonderful week on Flint Lake, the cottage is perfect, right on the water. It is stocked with everything imaginable. They definitely take pride with the decor & cleanliness. The big bonus is the newer pontoon boat, was nice cruising around the lake after dinner. We will be back.

Great times/ memories
Took 4 of our grandkids ages 11-12 for annual trip. This was the perfect place for outdoor active kids! Very nice pontoon, kayakes, paddle boards, fishing boat (oars) on a nice peaceful quiet lake. Non stop fun with lots of great memories made. Enough so that the kids want to return next year!! Kirk was prompt, friendly and a great host. Bill/ Marthe Keim

Perfect getaway!
We had a great time at Leah’s Lakehouse. We really enjoyed having access to all the water toys, being able to walk out to the pier and fish at anytime. The fishing at the pier was great in the evenings. The kids didn’t get bored (ages 12 & 16) even though the area was quiet and low key. The location is great, close to other things to do as well. We took an evening and drove to Chicago to catch a White Sox game, visited Albanese Candy Factory, went to the outlets in Michigan City. Leah and her dad are very responsive to questions etc. overall great stay and would stay again.
