This cottage was originally built in the 1942. With original Cypress walls and new loft this space is fresh! I find the wonky floors, creaky doors, old cast iron tub and sink charming. I hope you do too! More cottages listed under my profile.

Amanda was a great hostess! She was super efficient in communicating with me prior to booking and once on site. She even replied immediately when I contacted her on a whim to see if she had a couple extra camp chairs I could borrow (which she did and gladly offered up for use!) Beds were super comfy and the lace was decorated well—just as pictured. The bathroom is tiny and much smaller than expected but just fine for our weekend use. Consider quick showers though as the water pressure is low and the temperature doesn’t quite heat up. Our cabin was just a 2 minute walk to the small beach area located on site. I wish we would’ve had more of a view rather than gravel and other cabins, but it was fine. We enjoyed a bonfire in the provided pit right outside our cabin each night we stayed. The price seemed a bit high for the location and amenities, but with a few slight adjustments (upkeep on spider webs) we’d consider a trip back! Overall this place was cute and quaint and a bit “homey” with some nice aesthetic updates. The area is cute with a bunch of small town eateries and shops and an antiquer’s Heaven! We had a nice time and are glad we had booked this place while we were in the area.

Amanda is a great host! Everything was picture perfect and the cottage was decorated impeccably! We rented two cottages and had the best time! She was very responsive with my questions during booking and made the whole process super easy! Can't wait to visit again!!!

Amanda was a wonderful host: accessible and easy-going. She really has done a great job with the rehab and decor of the cabins. Now that we know how easy it is to get there from Chicago it will surely be a popular place for our family to go during the summer.
