Wonderful sunsets, great fishing, friendly people

  • 5 of 5

We brought our boat and absolutely loved having our own private dock for fishing. Perfect size for 4 people. Gorgeous sunsets, kayak access, beautiful wildlife, loons and herons. Home was stocked with the necessities and comfortable, enjoyed having TV and Internet access at night. Would definitely stay again! Thanks for the hospitality!

Cottage on Wonder Lake

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our accommodations. The cottage was right on the lake so we could simply walk out the back door, go fishing or just sit and enjoy the view. We were also able to take our dog, which was a big plus! The fully stocked kitchen, supply of linens etc. was very convenient. We would definitely come back for a stay!
