About the property

4bdrm, 2 Bath Lakeshore Cottage. Panoramic Views Of 450 Ft Of Shoreline.

Welcome to our 'Great Lake Escape'. This four season home offers exceptional panoramic views from most areas inside as well as outside on it's wrap around deck and expansive 450 ft of lake shore. 'Escape' today's fast-paced lifestyle or if you seek adventure, you can boat, ski, hunt, hike, fish, explore caves/and or casinos. The lakescape offers family friendly lake frontage that kids and adults are sure to enjoy. There's over an acre of yard, spacious wrap around decks and triple docks, allowing ample opportunities for outdoor fun. Location on a near point lot and idle zone of the lake keeps both street and lake traffic at a minimum. While there are many local attractions and nearby recreational opportunities to enjoy, guests comment most about amazing views of soaring bald eagles, blue herons, deer and wild turkeys; the relaxing sound of the horses hoofs clopping as they pull an Amish buggy across the causeway, the brilliance of the stars at night, and most of all---the perfect peace and indescribable quiet. From fishing to swimming to evening campfires, this is a place you will want to escape to time and time again.

Guestbook comments from the manager

What a great place. We felt so at home here. Everything was so clean and well thought out. The layout worked out so well for our group. We loved the boats. the fishing was fabulous! The flowers are such a nice touch and we have never seen so many hummingbirds! Sunning on the deck and docks with the nice lawn chairs was great. Great spots for reading inside and out. Great memories were made here.

Perfection Found - Beautiful, Private, Friendly, Clean

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible weekend! Bonfires, fishing, swimming (brrrr!!), canoeing, kayaking, paddle-boating, cooking, grilling, and hanging out with family! Beautiful, large, and very private property. Having the house at the end of the road was beyond amazing.

We found the house to be perfect for our group and all ages loved it! Ages 8 months to 83 years old! We loved that the kids could run around outside within view of the wraparound decks. It was also nice to have large common areas both upstairs and downstairs. It allowed for visiting and playing downstairs in the living room/deck, while others could be more mellow upstairs, reading, etc.

The changing leaves were beautiful and the lake was so peaceful. We found all of the neighbors and folks we met out on the lake to be very friendly and a lot of fun!

The personal poetry and the art were wonderful touches. Made us feel right at home! Cannot wait to come back!

Lovely, tranquil location on the lake. Lots of seating and tablets on outdoor decks. Well equipped kitchen. Paddle boat and canoe were a nice addition. We hope to be back.

Wonderful Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our parents 40th Wedding Anniversary and it was wonderful! The place was exactly like the pictures! We had 20+ with the parents, all the kids/spouses and grandkids! Plenty of room and the house was clean and very well stocked! We brought a lot of our own stuff and didn't need to: life jackets (in plenty of sizes), roasting sticks, etc were already supplied. Brenda was great to work with, very sweet! The owner stopped by to check on us and was very kind. Definitely a place we will visit again!!! The sandbox had a cover and was clean, the kids enjoyed playing in there for hours! We brought a couple kayak's and hammocks and we swam, kayaked, fished, lounged in the hammocks! We had a campfire every night and played games! No one was ready to go home, we all had a blast! The only complaint would be that there were a lot of little gnats that came out at night through the early morning that were very annoying but that is part of nature!! Overall a wonderful little mini-vacation and the grandkids ask regularly to go back! Wonderful family memories made!!!!

Great family retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The Great Escape Lake House was everything we could have hoped for. With a family of 20, there was plenty of space for everyone and so many activities for all ages. We will definitely book this properly again!

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had a big group and had such a nice time. Had everything we needed at the house. Owners bent over backwards to ensure our stay was special. Thank you! Next time around we will probably come earlier in the summer for clearer water.
