Great spot and lovely hosts

  • 4 of 5

Very quiet and comfortable. Hosts are very nice and accommodating. Cottage is in a neighborhood so it's not completely private, but we didn't see anyone else for two whole days. Lots of room to spread out.

Great property for a quiet and relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

The property was as pictured and described. My brothers and I had a very nice stay here. Previous reviews are spot-on. Rick and Margaret have a very easy check-in and check-out process and made themselves available if we needed anything.

We took kayaks and launched from the property under the watch of the neighborhood deer. The large deck in the back was a great spot to hang out. We'd all go back to the property. Very comfortable.

Very Nice. Well kept and clean.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend on the property with our 2 daughters. Rick was very accommodating. Electric was ran to the boat dock so batteries could be charged. House was clean and well kept. Water pressure in the showers was amazing. We enjoyed our stay very much and would recommend the property highly.

JUNE 2016

  • 4 of 5

The location of this home is very peaceful and quiet. We enjoyed fishing and swimming from the covered dock in this quiet cove. Rented a boat from a nearby marina and able to tie it up anytime we needed a break from the water. A family of deer lived nearby that we saw each day. The house was well stocked and clean. Rick was very helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay here again!
