Great Get Away Location !

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I spent the weekend at this great little cottage!

If you like sitting out on the porch this is a great location to do it. There is a small stream on the front side and wonderful little lake on the back. I cant say enough about the view.

You are just a short walk down to the South Toe River which is just awesome to walk and wade in. I did give the trout fishing a try and caught a few also.

The cabin has A/C in two of the bedrooms. We were there in Mid July and I really thought it may get uncomfortable but the cottage is shaded all around so the heat never presented a problem. THe house very comfortably furnished.

If you go, you need to keep in mind that there is no Internet service and the cell phone service area is sketchy.

Dont miss out on this place, I will definitely go back !
