Unique: We offer a unique experience. There are not many of these ole-time lakeside cottage gems left because they just don't build them like this anymore. A quintessential 1930's era lakeside cottage which has kept its original rustic charm. We are boutique-style.
Come and enjoy the nostalgia... make memories of crisp winter or warm summer days spent on the lake. Awesome summer naps, colorful foliage, ducks, geese, loons, osprey, eagles, turtles, and pinkletinks to name a few.... anyone will agree it's a perfect setting for a family gathering, girlfriend getaway, and any celebratory weekends. This lakeside cottage will draw you in, wrap you up, and beg you to stay awhile. This cottage has been updated/preserved/and continually renovated to include modern creature comforts.
There is no other place like it....quirks included!
FEES: for optional amenities~ Added options to keep prices down.
