Clean, cozy, beautiful as always. .

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cabin, roomy and a nice view. We heard the loons and watch the stars. Very short walk to the lake Beach and close to town. Setting is truly peaceful, the owners and caretakers are easy to work with. 3rd stay and it is consistently clean and ready.

Long Term Renters

  • 5 of 5

We are senior retirees who get away from the Texas heat in the summer. We spent July and August, 2014 in this cottage and we couldn't have been more pleased. It has all the amenities needed for a long term stay, and it is just as nice as the description implies. Although it is not right on the lake, there is a nice view of the lake from the porch, and it is close enough that we could hear the loons. The last day we were there, we were visited by a small black bear which came out of the woods next to the house. Additionally, Marsha was a pleasure to work with.

Great winter getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was exactly what we were looking for. We wanted the log cabin feel with all the amenities of a cozy home. The house was very well appointed and clean. We stayed for 5 days and wish we could've spent more.

Beautiful Property. As described.

  • 5 of 5

Property was beautiful, clean, and exactly as described. Nicely furnished and convenient location. Large amount of off road parking. Suited me just perfectly. Three adults stayed in the three bedrooms and all were satisfied. Owners were a pleasure to deal with and promptly returned deposit. I would recommend this property and I would stay there again.

start to finish, this rental property is perfection. the owner was a delight to work with and beyond accommodating. the house is welcoming, well appointed and leaves the renter wanting for nothing. it truly made for an ideal getaway, relaxing, comfortable and ideally located. so close to the canadian border - don't forget your passport!!!

i can't wait to return and spend even more time at this immaculate, peaceful and rustic home. see you next year!!!
