“Justice stay”

Reviewed 1 Jul 2017

We enjoyed everything about our stay and we will be coming back again. The cookies were great, the view was amazing, and enjoyed our first time kayaking.

“Nice little get-away”

Reviewed 19 Jun 2017

Very clean and well equipped. The sun room and deck are awesome. There's a nice lawn and you'll find a casino 15 minutes away, in case you get cabin fever on a rainy, blustery day.

“Peaceful stay at the lake”

Reviewed 18 Jul 2016

This cottage was just what we expected. It was clean, well cared for and had a beautiful view of the lake from the sun room at the back of the house. The sun room which appears to be a recent addition, was the highlight of this cabin. The high peaked ceiling & window wall made the room very spacious and there is a table where you can enjoy breakfast while looking out on the lake or relax with a cup of coffee on the sofas or rocking chair. As others have mentioned, the negative is the small bedrooms which were quite claustrophobic. I brought a queen size inflatable bed and we slept in the living room which I preferred. Also, it has a very small shower in the bathroom. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and cooking utensils and there was a salt & pepper shaker, sugar packets and coffee and tea provided. It was nice to have a full size refrigerator and stove so I could cook some of our meals during our stay. The only other thing I would mention is that this isn't a swimming lake and there isn't any beach. At this end of the lake it was quite marshy but they had a dock where you could got out with a kayak. There were a couple of swans that we enjoyed watching and we were personally relieved to find that both the neighborhood and lake were quiet. Overall, it is a wonderful little cabin for a restful week away!

“Fabulous cottage with views of the lake-great value for money!”

Reviewed 2 Aug 2014

We were delighted when we arrived at the cottage for several reasons-the owner had provided very clear directions (it wasn't on our GPS), it was easy to access the property via a coded door lock so we didn't have to wait for someone to arrive and let us in, and the place was gorgeous! The cottage was much more nicely appointed than we'd imagined, with a great sunlounge and a well stocked kitchen. It was extremely clean and bright. There were boats available at the pier just in front of the cottage, as well as a bbq and chairs on the deck. The view each day when we woke and looked across the lake was fabulous, and at night we sat and watched the fireflies and the stars. The owner and neighbours were helpful and friendly. There is a small store a short drive away, then we used the town of Hartford for larger stores. It was an easy drive to South Haven too. We had wifi in the property. The only drawback was the main bedroom which was very small.

Response from the owner Thanks so much for your review of your stay with us. We appreciate your kind words. We were glad you had a positive time while vacationing with us. We do work hard at making your time as enjoyable as possible.
