Location Map



It was great! Wonderful location, beautiful property. Quiet and off the beaten track makes for a great place to get away with your family or friends. Loved it and will definitely go the owner does a wonderful job of making sure you know where all the activities are !


My family and I stayed for a week in July and had a wonderful time. The home was set up perfectly for our weeks stay. Had all the extra's we needed to make it comfortable. The deck is absolutely beautiful and perfect to sit on while watching the water hit the shore, sunrise and sunset. Jan was very helpful and met us when we got there to show us around. She had a ton of information on the area and brochures available for us to see what activities were around us.


We were very pleased to stay at this lake house for a week for our family vacation. We did use the boat rentals and were able to go out on the water a couple times within the week and enjoyed kyacking and row boating. Other days were quite windy with pretty big waves but we didnt mind relaxing out on the spacious back deck (where we spent most of our time) Being right on the lake was perfect as we could go out swimming or view the lake at anytime. 


Jan is a very good hostess. She was prompt in communicating with us. The cottage is a bit worn but cozy. This is to be expected when you are permitted to bring doggies. Our dogs had a blast walking in the state park a short walk from the cottage. Very good directions were left for the supermarket (very short drive) and the farmers market and cafe. Jan recommended the market to us and what a great pick. Outstanding pie and lunch!
It gets a bit hot in the cottage if the wind does not come off the lake. In a storm or high winds the lake is great to look at. We appreciated being able to take our dogs as they enjoyed the trip.
