Very clean, lovely cottage right on a picture perfect lake.

  • 5 of 5

Dan is a superb host; helpful and accommodating. The setting is perfection! Pristine, swimmable lake is bordered by a state forest. Great hiking. The fire pit sits just beyond the dock and a table and chairs. Both are a perfect spot for cocktails and chillin'. Looking forward to another stay.

Just perfect for my vacation. I enjoyed my stay .

  • 5 of 5

The rustic cottage was quaint and comfortable. Having WiFi and washer and dryer was a plus when you are staying more than a couple days. Fully functional kitchen and grill made it homey and economical. We enjoyed fishing and just relaxing by the fire pit. My favorite part was being able to walk across to the State forest and stroll around viewing nature. The owners left to our privacy and were very kind and considerate when we had inquiries or needs.

Peaceful cottage in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay with Dan and Tina! They are both very helpful and welcoming! The cottage has everything you could need: WiFi, dishes to cook, extra blankets, right down to tools to cut wood for a fire in the pit by the lake. We had quiet nights alone by the water, and other nights were able to enjoy having our little nieces and nephews over for toasting marshmallows for s'mores. It was the perfect home away from home. My husband and I grew up in MA, but live in CO now, and we come back to visit from time to time. Next time we come back we would love to stay here again!!! Thank You Dan and Tina!

Beautiful lakefront

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is on a beautiful property.On our stay the weather was prefect, we used the boat and kayak and enjoyed the scene views of the lake.We loved the fire pit,and Dan all so provided firewood. Dan was a great help, He made himself available."We're from the city"said Dan joking with us .. being able to get away and actually enjoy nature and still have the amenities of home is prefect.

Cute and quiet!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were looking for a little place we could get some work done away from home. This was exactly the place we were looking for! Cute and quiet, somewhere you can get inspired and concentrate. The landscape is stunning and my dog loved playing in the lake water which was a few step away from the entrance of the cottage. Hiking lovers should definitely stay here! The entrance of Douglas state forest is about a 2 min walk from the cottage. Will definitely be staying here again soon. I'd also like to note that the Wifi was fast and reliable which was a HUGE plus.
