Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed the cleanliness of the cottage and garage. Best stocked kitchen I have ever seen in my travels. Swing on deck was wonderful.

Dishwasher was very quite, plenty of towels provided. Information in quest booklet very helpful. We loved this cottage.

A perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to stay at this cottage and things could not have been better. Joan and Mark are gracious hosts that provide endless guest-comfort features. The lakefront location with boat dock, coupled with a recently renovated cottage makes this the perfect place to stay!

Great Cottage for Vacations

  • 5 of 5

What we enjoyed was the sunsets and views of the lake/channel of the lilypads. Privacy of location, tastefully furnished, lake décor very bright. Every item in the kitchen that we needed was here, tissue boxes, shower soap everything provided and every detailed covered. Beds very comfortable, lots of towels and pillows.

Patio furniture comfortable and plenty for everyone. Great place. Loved it.

Family enjoyment

  • 5 of 5

Our second year at this cottage was even better than the first. Joan and Mark are constantly upgrading the facilities, which are very comfortable, and it feels like home when we are there. The location at the Oakwood Resort is a perfect location to be on the lake and close to many amenities. Our family looks forward to visiting this cottage again next year.
