what a gem! Magnolia now holds a special place in the heart of our family!
Magnolia was the perfect retreat for our busy family. The cottage was very clean and well maintained and adequately equipped. Magnolia was spacious for a 2 bedroom 2 bath cottage and laid out nicely. The beds were comfy and allowed for a good nights rest. The dock was perfect for sitting out on in the early morning and relaxing with a book and a cup of coffee and also doing a little fishing (maybe next time we will bring our boat or rent one from the State Park just up the road). Our younger children enjoyed going for a ride on the paddle boat and our teens had a blast kayaking around the lake. We loved being able to sit around the fire pit in the evening and watching the sun set over the lake while roasting hotdogs and having s'mores! The local atmosphere was great, laid back and the local folks were very friendly. We enjoyed dinner one evening at a local BBQ place which had some of the best ribs, pulled pork and brisket! Peggy was a great help in answering any questions or concerns before and during our stay and made our stay delightful. After a few days at Magnolia our family was already talking about coming back! (we spent a week in Florida after leaving Magnolia and our kids actually wanted to go back and stay at Magnolia!! yes, it is that great of a place!) It was a blessing to get away from the cell phones, iPads all electronics and just have time together as a family at the lake! Hope to visit again next year and stay a little longer! A special thank you to the Crumley's for allowing us to stay at their great little lake cottage! It was a gift from the Lord for sure! Every Blessing, Pastor Andy, Amy and Family
