Shoreline is all natural, very soft bottom with water plants and sunken logs - not able to enter the water from the shoreline

Review of T. D.'s stay in Aug 2022

Guest Comments: The cottage is beautiful and spacious and super clean. The road in was an adventure! The only downside for me that has nothing to do with the cottage itself were the bugs! More bugs than I’m used too but on the bright side caught more fish than I’m used to.

CCR Reply: Thank you for taking the time to detail your experience. The bugs are particularly bad this year but particularly so the more tucked back into the woods you go... happy to hear about the fishing, on the bright side! Take good care, Team CCR

Review of S. S.'s stay in Jul 2020

Guest Comments: Cottage and amenities were good, would be 5 stars with satellite tv and washing machine. (But it is a cottage) Lake is not suitable for swimming at the cottage location. Fishing on the lake is fantastic with walleye, muskie and small mouth bass. Scenery is also very good. The road to the cottage is rough but ok with a truck. We brought a 17 foot fishing boat and was ok getting to the cottage with it. The road was a bit washed out when we went but was better when we left. I might not go with a small car. Cottage is a very good size and clean. Cottage and property is very comfortable and would book it again, had a great week there.

Guest Comments: My whole family had enjoyed our stay at the cottage for the past 7 days. The place itself had all amenities we could have asked for to enjoy our vacation. When there was a water filter problem, one phone call to Amanda solved it! No issues:) Thank you!

Review of a. h.'s stay in Jul 2019

Guest Comments: The pictures don't do this cottage justice! (Sorry...saw later that the photos have been updated.) It's very large, the lawn down to the lake is much larger that it looks on the photos, it's just all around wonderful... except for the drive up the private road. That's a bit rough. Oh...and we couldn't find the charcoal bbq that was listed. Note that once the week was out, none of us wanted to leave! A beautiful, quiet, relaxing spot.

CCR Reply: Thank you for the review. We have corrected the listing to reflect that only a propane BBQ is there now. We hope we can serve you in the future.
