Owner's Response: We certainly appreciate you taking the time to give feedback on your stay and will immediately address your concerns about the cleanliness with our cleaning crew. Unfortunately due to the high mineral content in the water the showers tend to look dingy even though they are clean. We do apologize for the missing DVD player and will be replaced – thank you for bringing it to our attention. The reason for the window unit in the one bedroom was to rectify an issue with a blocked air duct, but the house does have central air conditioning. We appreciate that you have given us a very high rating and are happy that you had a great time on your vacation. Hopefully you will consider returning again next year.

3 days with adult kids

  • 4 of 5

the cottage was very nice, roomy and mostly up to date. large kitchen very nice. over all clean with modern appliances. we brought our boat and it would have been easier for my wife to enter and exit the boat if there was a dock the ground was very slick by the water a little dangerous. we would rent this cottage again and would recommend it to others.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review on our property. We appreciate your comments very much and your recommendation. We have been in the process of getting estimates for a dock installation and hope to have one completed for next season. We hope you will be our guest again next summer.

We stayed in July and had a great stay. Big home and plenty of room. Big deck and a great fishing backyard. The place is clean and plenty of room for cars in front.
