Cute little lakefront cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Love being on the lake. We brought our kayaks and enjoyed Clay County Fair as well as Crandall beach the rest of the area. Cute little cottage supplied with everything you could possibly need. Nice to sit on the pier or in the screen porch. Enjoyed our stay. Thanks!

Really enjoyed our vacation at the cabin

  • 4 of 5

We loved the cabin, the lake view; the location, ease of access to the lake, and accommodations for our boat. The cabin was fully furnished and very comfortable. We would consider renting again and would recommend it to friends/family. It was also nice that we got an opportunity to meet Steve and Greta. Two things to know; the parking was minimal at the cabin (2 vehicles only); and the commode is low considering we have "old" knees. Would be nice to have one that sits higher.

Great family get away

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as described and expected. Our family of four had a great time relaxing and were kept busy fishing off the dock and behind the cabin. Everything we wanted to do during out stay was either available for us here or within a short drive to surrounding towns or lakes.

Clean and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for the fishing and had a great time. The boat lift out back was very convenient plus the fishing off the dock out front was nice too. The place was clean and comfortable with a roomy, open floor plan. We would definitely stay again!

Double Booked

  • 1 of 5

Two weeks before our arrival we were informed they accidently double booked us. We made our reservations in May. Owner suggested sending check directly to them instead of paying the $60 fee booking on VRBO. That was my mistake.

Owners sounded sincerely sorry and offered a discount for a future date or to stay at another property not one the water. They refunded our money promptly.

I do feel compelled to leave this review as we had a very difficult time finding a new location on such short notice. I would hate for someone else to go through this.

Owner's Response: Ron, I am truly sorry and your review was accurate - we messed up. You were very gracious in allowing the other renter to keep the week. To correct this situation in the future, after our returning renters have reserved their weeks, we will be using VRBO Booking calendar for all reservation requests made after February. Once again, we are very sorry for your trouble and the inconvenience it caused you last summer!

Very clean and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

Very nice place to stay. Could use air conditioning in the bedrooms. Was so nice having all types of cooking utensils and even condiments to cook with. Even had bottled water for us in case we didn't like the water from tap. We totally felt comfortable and at home for our vacation. Beautiful view. Would highly recommend this stay to others.
