      Perfect Weekend Getaway!

      The house looked exactly as pictured and was conveniently located to great food & Lake Geneva!! We enjoyed our stay in the area. Sam, the owner was awesome and very responsive.

      5/5 Excellent

        Relaxing getaway on the water!

        My daughter and I spent a lovely weekend together here! The cottage is fully outfitted, clean, and on the water...not the lake, but a little channel right off Long Lake. We loved putting the kayaks in right off the dock and exploring the lake several times during our stay! Sunsets, sunrises and meals on the deck made our weekend perfect. The living room seating arrangement is a little funky, but since we didn’t spend a lot of time inside, it didn’t matter! Sam really thought of everything!

            Anniversary Get-A-Way

            This cottage was very clean and my husband really enjoyed fishing off the dock. Kitchen was well stocked but I had trouble reaching the cooking pots because of the shelf height. Sam, the owner met us there and was very helpful.
