The fence goes into the woods and around the home - which allows all your pups to place chase around the house - as well as the kids and adults. There are wooden steps off the dock into the water to enter and for some older dogs- we have natural stone steps into the water, so they do not slide as much.. Either way, lots of ways to enter the water and get back out without difficulty. We do allow multiple dogs ( since we own several ourselves).. .. so just let us know. We also offer a large dog bed, so you do not have to bring those in- we only have one currently- if you need another please let us know, so we can try to obtain what you need.

The Privacy- and the spectacular views! beautiful area

What makes this house unique

Private, no one across from you- but the Mountain and wildlife

Guestbook comments from the owner

House was better than the on line pictures, bedrooms are spacious, grounds are gorgeous, setting is picture perfect, house has a very comfortable feel to it; furnishings and items provided by the host were more than expected, and much better than you would find in a competing hotel or motel setting. For our family this house was five stars ... Thank you !

A sliver of heaven amidst the summer swelter

  • 5 of 5

Yet again, this place did not disappoint.

Really enjoyed getting to experience a warm summer stay (...and the benefits the lake offers for that weather reality!). Can't wait to book the next trip - hopefully this fall.

Thanks again...next time we'll coordinate for a longer stay to immerse ourselves more fully into the SML state of mind.

AMAZING TIME !!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to the Log Cabin for over ten years now. We love this place and would highly recommend to any family or couple. We have been other places around the country and have to say that we ALWAYS come back to the Log Cabin. Peaceful, serene, and very homey. !!! Our dogs love it also. The owners keep the place equipped with everything you could possibly need. The home is clean and comfortable for all. This year we rented a boat for the first time on the lake and it was a real asset to the vacation. But even without a boat we have enjoyed our many stays at the Log Cabin Retreat. Lots to do and see. Will be back again without a doubt.

Owner's Response: Wow, first time for the power boat- I know it is so relaxing there you never want to leave- you can paddle all around in there and just relax.. But our lake is great to explore - all 500 miles of it ! Thank you for coming again ! Hope to see you again soon, book for next year as well early .. thank you for taking such great care of the place as well !

2nd time better than the first

  • 4 of 5

Amenities abound. Multiple places to view and enjoy the lake no matter the weather. 5th star for a bigger TV and linens. We will be back. This place is perfect for us and our dog who loved bounding about the large fenced yard.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying ! The TV's will not get bigger- just because - my beliefs are everyone should be outside more - but that is me- I do not watch TV. I wish I could just throw the linens in - but they cost me $150 to have them sterilized ( which is commonwealth law) so I can either raise the price for every booking by that - or we felt that the guest should have the choice to bring them or rent them and pay what was fairly priced, for the home. We do thank you again for staying- and hope to see you again soon !

This home has everything!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay at this home was one of the best experiences we've ever had renting. This home has everything you can ever imagine to keep you busy as well as a stocked kitchen. I mean stocked! If you still cook on vacation this place is great. The appliances are all up to date, the house was clean, and there was a kayak and a few paddle boards that my daughters loved. The fire pit was fun and there are so many decks, chairs and loungers to choose from. I can't say enough great things about this rental. Maybe top on my list was knowing my two dogs could run free in the fenced yard and I didn't worry about them running off! This means the world! I highly recommend this home!

Quiet well maintained vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Second stay here. Property is very well maintained. Pretty location on secluded cove. Nice fenced in yard for the dogs. Very nice touches that clearly indicate this is also someone's home. Loved hearing the whippoorwills at night.
