Rob was incredibly accommodating and his house was perfect for our three families—lots of space to spread out. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat

Rob's place is just gorgeous, all that is described & more. The setting is beautiful & peaceful. The amenities are very good & I couldn't recommend this too highly.

Sweet Dotties is the perfect location on Candlewood Lake. With east lake access and a beautiful outdoors and back porch, it's a wonderful lakeside weekend retreat. The kids loved playing by the lake and fishing off the dock. There were plenty of lawn toys and board games to keep everyone busy. The house was well stocked and very clean. We cannot wait to plan another trip to Sweet Dotties!!

nicely tucked away but no canoe unfortunately. Steep incline but otherwise very commodious. Had a couple issues while there but Rob very quick to respond and very helpful.

This cottage was perfect for our young families. The location is sublime- it sits on the edge of a beautiful lake-with rolling green grass inviting you down to the jetty. Rob generously provides lots of equipment-every age was entertained. The kitchen is very well equipped making it a pleasure to cook at home for a large group. Thank you Rob for sharing this home.
