About Cheryl and Stephanie

This is a family owned property that has been passed down by generation to generation. We are four siblings that are interested in keeping the spirit of family vacations alive and affordable. All of us were brought out here as children to weekend and vacation.

Cheryl and Stephanie purchased this cottage in 1940

Why Cheryl and Stephanie chose Shelbyville

This property came into our family through our Aunt and Uncle. Our Aunt ran a store from this property and the building still stands as a family cottage. She started leasing the rental cottage out when she ran the store. Her sister and brothers came out to enjoy the lake and as their families grew they brought their children. My mother inherited the property when all of her siblings passed on. When she passed on we her children inherited this property. This is our little piece of heaven.

What makes this cottage unique

As a family we have maintained and improved this property through the years. We enjoy spectacular sunsets and have many special memories of the lake.

Quaint cottage on beautiful lake

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in this rustic little cottage on Gun Lake. It is exactly as we expected it to be and nice and clean. Everything we needed to enjoy a week exploring the lake and wonderful owners as well. We are already planning next year’s visit!

Wonderful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week at this Gun Lake Cottage. We have been renting from Cheryl and Stephanie for many years and are never disappointed. They are extremley friendly and accomodating.

This year we were pleasantly surprised to find some updates (new porch windows and flat screen TV mounted up on the wall). The kitchen is well supplied for your convenience. The only thing I might suggest are a few wall hooks to be able to hang personal items up. The location of the cottage on a bay cuts down on the heavy traffic over the weekends.

We will definatley be back!
