Great vacation cottage

August 22, 2014

We rented this beautiful cottage for a week and it was great. Everything was well stocked and we felt right at home. We were able to make the most of the lake during the day and enjoyed the lakeside fire pit in the evenings. We will definitely be back...hopefully sooner than later!!!

The Good Life!

August 22, 2014

My kids as well as my nieces and nephews will have good memories for life after staying on Mousam Lake. Before I could get my 1st bag out of the car, they were sliding off a slide into the water. It did not stop there; there is an amazing sand bar that the kids and adults loved hanging out at which is very relaxing and a good place to get to know others whom may be vacationing as well. All this is just the outside! When you go inside the house you can tell it has and is kept up very well. It is very clean yet very cozy. There is ample room to have extended family stay and it also spacious enough that you don’t feel cramped. It has a great screened in porch to hang out and have a nice cup of coffee in the morning or to just read a book while overlooking the lake. There is also a deck attached as well if you want to enjoy that book or coffee outside as well. The house is just steps away from the lake so you can watch the kids while comfortably relaxing either on the deck, screened in porch or down on the lake frontage. Nights are great with the fire pit which hosted a couple of GIANT SMORES concoctions for the kids. To end the night while the adults relax by the fire pit, the kids enjoyed some great classic movies like Goonies and the Sand lot. To say this place is great is an understatement. My family as well as my in-laws had a blast as this is just the vacation home you hope for when you go away with your family.

Wonderful Family Vacation!

August 21, 2014

We rented this property for our large family - lots of kids and adults. The location is perfect - loved having a pretty private place for the kids to swim while hanging out on the deck. They also got to fish from the dock, it was a great experience for them! Nights by the firepit were a highlight. It did rain while we were there but the screened in porch was a savior! The house was very clean and very home-y. We had plenty of sleeping room and private space. And loved looking at the owners beautiful photos on the walls from traveling. We took great walks and bike rides in the area. The house and the property were perfect for us and we will definitely rent again next year. Great memories were made!

Owner's reply:

We are so glad you enjoyed your time at our house and look forward to having you there again next year.
