Love this Cottage
This was the perfect place for our girls weekend. Lois & Hank were wonderful hosts and their cottage was perfect. All you need is your food & clothes! The town of Lake is very charming. You must stop in at the General Store while you are there - it is so cute and has a lot of stuff! Everything in the cottage is well maintained - we had zero issues all weekend. We loved it so much we will be back again next year! Bring your own rafts, canoes or kayaks. Otherwise, you can rent them from Crooked Lake Resort not too far away. The lake area next to the dock is nice and sandy and shallow enough for kids. Thank you and we will see you next year!
OK, had a good time.....please read
Property was clean, and well kept, no issues there. The only reason why I gave it (3/5) stars was the A/C, or lack of...... OK, I understand that this is a lake house, and you "should" be spending time outside on one of the decks (very nice buy the way), but after a day outside or on the lake, it is nice to walk into a cool house. Each bedroom has an A/C unit.....(from the 80's) that did a lack-luster job and sounded like a gravel crusher. The owners left instructions to shut off during the day, witch we did, however, would have been nice to come home to a somewhat cool house. And for the price per night, I expected working A/C.... Again, my rating, for some A/C is not a deal breaker, then I say stay here, however, if I wanted to try to sleep in the humidity and heat, I would have just used a tent.
Great weekend at the lake!
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!
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!
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.
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.
