Great weekend at the lake!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend on Crooked Lake celebrating a 60th birthday. The owner's even had a happy birthday balloon waiting for us when we arrived! The house had the perfect set up for our family - we enjoyed the upper deck and grilled out, had bonfires on the middle deck area and spent lots of time on the lower deck and dock. The dock area was perfect for fishing. The house had everything we needed and we really appreciated the window air-conditioners in each room. Overall a great stay and we would love to come back again!

Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Perfect getaway for our girls weekend. The cabin was spacious, clean and provided all of the small things. The renters were very welcoming and accommodating. We loved the fact that we could jump right into the water from the dock or even admire it from the back deck. Beautiful view and cozy stay. We will definitely be back!

Peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our stay in the Crooked Lake Cottage. My son from the time he got up to the time he went to bed was at the dock fishing. My husband brought his fishing boat and our kids caught fish every day. My daughter caught the biggest pike( bigger than the boys)! Lois and Hank are very nice and welcoming. The cottage is very clean and spacious. I would definitely recommend staying at this Lakefront cottage.

A great place for the whole family.

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family stayed at this lovely cottage for a week. Do to the wonderful owners we had a great stay. The place was clean and comfortable and had all the amenities you need to have a lovely time. The dock was a little wobbly but were able to bring our pontoon and speed boat. We saw 2 bald eagles on the lake during our stay. We enjoyed boating, tubing, campfires, swimming, BBQing and relaxing on the lake. We had several friends come for the during the week and the owners were okay with them coming. We had a birthday party one of the days with several extra people and had a lovely time. Overall, it was a great time for everyone. The owners are great people. I would recommend this cute little cottage to anyone who wants to have a great vacation with the whole family.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your high praise of our cottage on Crooked Lake. We've addressed the issue with the dock. The lake bottom shifts and moves over the course of the season and hopefully, the dock now feels more secure. Your family was a delight and we are looking forward to seeing you again next summer.

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this site for more than a week during the off season. The weather before our stay was marginal at best and the hosts went to extraordinary efforts to make sure the the water and heat were working perfectly before our arrival. We found the cottage to be comfortable, bright and cheery, clean, with all of the appliances working well. We are familiar with Crooked Lake during the summer season. It is fairly quiet during the week days and busy on weekends. It's a clean all-sports lake that boasts of having bass fishing tournaments sponsored by area businesses almost every week during the season. Both pontoon and ski boats are enjoyed by all. We would not hesitate to recommend the rental of this cottage to our friends, and others, and will rent it again.
