Overview

This is it. A true gem rare vintage 1930s cottage. The cottage is relaxing and calming, with many "must-have" conveniences and high-quality creature comforts because it needs to be "THAT" special place. You will love entertaining at the cottage because there is plenty of space for everyone. It's the perfect nostalgic de facto setting for family gatherings, girlfriend getaways, fishing trips & celebratory weeks or weekends. Soak up warm summer days or crisp autumn nights. The cottage is located in a valley featuring 5 lakes. Echo Lake, south of us, features a beautiful state park. Explore these interesting lakes, swimming holes, and hiking trails. Swim, ski, shop, sightsee, hike..... The home will draw you in, wrap you up, and invite you to stay awhile. There are 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. This is our "main" listing and we offer our cottage in smaller "bites" to accommodate smaller groups and families.

“Nothing has been overlooked in this beautiful, fascinating, and extremely charming house."

BEFORE BOOKING
Please review this entire site for terms before booking. A request to book indicates that you have read, understand, and agree to the terms including buying travel insurance and our cancellation policy. If you have questions, please ask before requesting to book. We will be happy to answer and assist.

GUEST OCCUPANCY AGREEMENT - All rental transactions are held accountable to the Guest Occupancy Agreement between the guest and owner. It outlines check-in and-out times & dates, recycling requirements/laws, cancellation policy, emergency procedures, and Acts of God. The owner will contact the guest to fill out the contract. The rental may be canceled by the owner at the owner's discretion if terms are not met. Trip insurance is strongly encouraged and recommended.

LAKE- This is a separate entity from the cottage rental and any concerns about the lake are not a party to this rental. No refunds are granted due to the public using the lake or any developments about the lake. The owner does not charge for the lake use.

Rental Payment Policy & Cancellation Policy-Will appear in the Guest Occupancy Agreement Contract
The Homeowners are not responsible for Guests' inability to arrive on time, if guests choose to depart early for any reason, or if any member(s) of guests' party does not show up. No refunds or rebates will be made based on the weather; power failure; mandatory evacuation; acts of God; earthquake; fire; flood; sabotage; strike; civil or military disturbance; acts of terrorism; war; epidemic or pandemic; riot; acts of government; and any other circumstances beyond Homeowner’s reasonable control.
• If paying with a credit card, 50% of the total payment is immediately due upon booking. The remaining 50% is due 90 days before commencement. If less than 90 days until the commencement of stay, the full amount is immediately due.
• If paying by check or cash for a discount, a $200 non-refundable fee (we will invoice you) is required to hold the dates. The $200 will be applied to the total amount due. Full payment needs to be paid within 5 days along with a signed Guest Occupancy Agreement.

If you meet all 3 of these conditions, most of the policies will reimburse you 75% of your trip costs, unless otherwise noted. Please read the fine print of your insurance policy carefully.
• Canceled bookings will receive a refund minus $200 cancellation + any credit card fees IF canceled 180 or more days from the commencement of the stay.
