We had a wonderful time at this charming cottage and we hope to return next year! Sheila is an amazing hostess and she definitely goes the extra mile to make you feel welcome. The décor is wonderful, all the fine little details are covered. The beds are amazingly comfy and the fully stocked kitchen was great. This place was the perfect size for our family of 4. My son caught a small pike off the dock and both kids played with the paddleboat for hours. The beach and sandy shore are wonderful. The perfect getaway.
This was our 2nd summer staying at this cottage on the lake. We love the location, yard, and beach front for the kids to play in. Our first year, we had to spend about an hour cleaning on arrival and the place was kind of grimy overall. Once we did a good clean-up though, it was wonderful. We loved the house and location so much that we decided to try it again - expecting that we would have to clean on arrival again. This time we were pleasantly surprised. The owner has done a great job remodeling the kitchen and replacing the flooring and doing some overall cleaning and general repairs. It was much cleaner and we did not have to clean on arrival! The house was beautiful. It is a great place to stay with the family. Our kids love to play in the sandy beach and fish off the dock. We have little ones and teenagers. Our older children like to kayak out to and around the island that is close by. The only downside to our stay this time, was that we were there on some of the hottest and most humid days of the summer and there is only a small window AC. It does not cool the whole house and the back bedrooms get hot and stuffy. Probably most of the time, there is a cool breeze off of the lake, but it didn't help those days since it was so humid. There are a couple of small fans in the bedrooms but they don't work very well. A 2nd window ac unit on the other side of the house would be helpful. Overall, it is a wonderful place to stay and we will definitely book again. We plan to make this a yearly event.
I gave it 4 stars because of the ac unit, but we love the house and you can't beat the location.
