About the Owner

I grew up in Toledo, OH in the country and loved the peace and quiet. After I got married and had children my husband, Larry, and I decided we wanted our children to grow up in the country and have the freedom of being able to run and play on the 5 acres where our home was situated. Living in the country away from the hustle and bustle of the city is great. Moving to the Lake was the best move we ever made.

Best Of Times

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spend 9 wonderful days at the lake cottage. Linda and Larry are the BEST host. They greeted us with smiles and homemade popcorn that they pop fresh every evening. The place was spotless very well kept. My husband and I brought our pontoon and had a blast. We caught blue gill and perch and plenty of them. My husband grilled nighty as I enjoyed sitting on the deck watching the boats come in and out so peaceful. I will return again next June. I think my husband and I have found that special get-away place with great people. Thanks Linda and Larry.

Owner's Response: My husband and I always put our renters first when it comes to making them feel at home. We enjoy talking to our renters and informing them of good fishing spots, good places to eat and also what to do on a rainy day. It is our intention to make everyone feel comfortable and at home while here.

Great Great Vacation Community

  • 5 of 5

Excellent vacation spot! Our family enjoys and looks forward to spending a week there every year. Linda and Larry are excellent people and great to live next to for the week and visit with. The kids love the slides and pond thats right outside your back door. Great relaxing vacation spot with plenty of things to do, from any lake activity to sitting around and visiting with the community and especially Linda and Larry. We have spent a week there the past three years and planning for many more too come. Thanks for a GREAT stay every year!!!

Owner's Response: Our number one concern is the happiness of our renters while they are at our cottage. It is great to spend time with each and every one of our guests and make sure all is going well. Communication with our guests allows us to improve on what we have.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Some friends and I rented for the first time from Linda this past weekend. Our expectations were met and then some. The cottage is beautiful with great access to the Coldwater Chain. They had plenty of dock space for boats. The cottage was very clean and completely prepped for our arrival. What I can't say enough about is how friendly and willing to help the owners were with everything. If you forgot salt they'd lend you some, if you were talking they'd offer you a drink, and even on an unexpected rainy morning they brought over a movie. We will be back for sure.

Owner's Response: We try our hardest to make all of our renters feel at home. Since we live in a friendly community, even the neighbors are a pleasure to have next door to our rental. We want everyone that rents to have a memorable vacation here and want to return.

From the Owner

We used to come to the lake and visit friends on weekends and fell in love with the area. Everyone is friendly. When the vacant lot came up for sale we made an offer and it was accepted. This was where we were building our retirement home. That was almost 30 years ago. Larry and I have both retired and lived here full time for 20 years now. We have seen our neighbors and friends children grow and today have children of their own. Shady Oaks is a private community with people that like to have fun and enjoy life. Here we have our privacy, yet a short 5-7 miles to town and there are theaters, restaurants and shopping.

From the Owner

We picked this area because of the awesome views of the lake. Everyday, every season is a new painting of life. I never see the same view twice as it changes continually.
