Kimball Lake Cottage

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5
This was our first summer renting this cottage and we were NOT disapointed! The cottage came furnished with much more than we expected and was exceptionally clean when we arrived. The fishing was really good right off the dock, and our two children had a blast catching turtles and frogs as well. The beach area is a little weedy but the owners live next door and were very gracious and let us use their beach, swimming area and diving dock. The lake water is also very clean. Overall I would highly recommend this rental to anyone. You definately get your moneys worth. It was a wonderful experience. Thank you Judy and Randy!

WE LOVED it! Beautiful Lake, quiet, close to home, affordable and perfect for all our needs. The yard is huge and the kids could still play without being too close to water. The lake is clean and fishing is great. The back of the house looking out to lake is covered in windows so you can see everything outside. The owner is so wonderful and helpful. I do not have one negitive to say. We were there for three hours before I decided that I want to come back every year....and we will.

Clean, comfortable, Peacful, beautiful sunrise, golf course close by is a fun place. If the owner gets lucky to sell it then I will miss not going back as I plan to use it again. Mind you I was there when the lake had settled down to the full time residents only so that ofcourse adds to the peacfullness. The owner was next door and provided a good tour of her property. You can access three other lakes from Kimbal Lake. For a first time user of vacation rental online I was very pleased.

Owner's Response: Yes, you will be able to come back again next year since we have taken it off the selling market. All of our renters this year thought the cottage was so much better than the pictures show. Glad you had a great time at our cute cottage.
