We have had such a relaxing time here at your cottage. Lost track of the days! What a beautiful spot. The quick arrival to location is just what we needed! Hope to once again return, thank you.  Sunday night we laid on the dock and watched the shooting stars memories. —James & Carolyn W. (Aug. 2018)

The cottage was fantastic. Our group had a blast. Couldn’t ask for more privacy. The sleeping accommodations were plentiful. The owners were very helpful and would call us back immediately when there was a question about their cottage. Amazing week, can’t wait to do it again next year. Thanks! —Eric Wiseman (June 2017)
