We just got back from a three night girls vacation. We loved it there. A beautiful area and town. Did some shopping, there were nice stores (did some Christmas shopping). A wide choice of restaurants. The cottage itself was stocked with everything you might need: crock-pot, blender, tons of towels, glasses, and lots of glassware and dishes. I hope to go back next year with my family. You will not be disappointed.

The house was very clean. We all slept great and loved the locusts singing at night! Too bad we couldn't stay longer!

Quaint, yet spacious with excellent ammenities

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the Hollingsworth's residence for 5 days, 4 nights and truly enjoyed ourselves. The surrounding area and lake are very quiet (motors are prohibited), to the point that I often wondered if our 7 adult and 1 child family were too loud! Speaking of our large family, the house had enough room for us to sleep comfortably and (mostly) move about without bumping into each other. The only area that felt tight with all of us was the kitchen, so we had to cook in teams, when necessary. The beach was nice and the water clear and warm. We had hoped to fish Cable Lake, but the only local marina that supplied non-motor boats only had kayaks left. The lake is private so if you're planning on fishing in the summer, you'll need to make reservations months in advanced. Also, the association prohibits fishing from the dock so it's boat or no fishing Cable Lake. We ended up renting a boat for the day on Magician Lake which is highly populated and busy in the summer. Pity, because I can only imagine how good the fishing would be with the lake hardly disturbed. Other than that, I would recommend this house! The owners were nice and helpful, providing all the info you need for an enjoyable stay! Would repeat! Thanks for the fun!
