Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this cottage for a weekend in May. Our family had a great time. This place was very clean and in the perfect location for us and our kids. Owners were extremely nice and helpful. We will definitely be staying here again! Very close to town and the sand dunes but in a private setting where you can enjoy a fire at night or a BBQ on the deck.

Wonderful Fall Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with accommodations. Super clean and all linens/amenities provided. Open great room & kitchen. Nice sunroom. Lots of TV's. Deck on front was great for meals and the gas grill was a nice addition. A bit of a walk to the lake, but we knew that. Loved it!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the place! Stayed for the weekend with 6 adults and 2 kids. Everything was very clean. The cottage is very close to the dunes. It has a nice long driveway that fit a long trailer. The gas grill worked. Debbie, the owner, was very helpful. I would definitely stay here again.
