We had a wonderful weekend away at the cottage. We stayed with our extended family and there were activities for everyone from 9 months – 70. We enjoyed catching minnows and fishing off the dock. We also had a great time kayaking, playing pool, and sitting on the porch having meals. -Edilson V. (June 2019)
Sturgeon Retreat was an awesome spot with great amenities. The private dock, BBQ, deck, fire pit, pool table, and TV were amazing touches. Lots of beds and space for guests, as well as a full kitchen and living room. This spot is great!” -Kyle V. (June 2019)
