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.
Guestbook comments from the manager
Had a great time with all the friendly people in the community. The cottage was perfect and there is a beautiful view of the lake from the deck.
I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a fun time.

Awesome family vacation. Thank you to Larry and Linda for a great place, great service and location.
Booked a last minute vacation with Linda who was very accommodating. Linda and Larry were both very nice people. Nice location, clean, well kept cottage with all the amenities. Very happy to find a pet friendly place that didn't break the bank. Thanks again!!! Mitch and Bridget Dickert
Nice little place
Booked this last minute with Linda who was very accommodating. Linda and Larry seemed like good people. Cottage was nice with all the amenities. Really enjoyed our stay and was thrilled to find a pretty friendly place that didn't break the bank. Will come again!!
Best Of Times
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.
Great Great Vacation Community
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!!!
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.
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.”
