I have been a regular for years. I love the different cabins and themes and of course, the daily warm fresh brownies or chocolate chip cookies. I enjoy the Belgium Waffle Breakfast with true maple syrup in the morning. The property is gorgeous and the best part, dog friendly. My dogs love rustic cottages. Husband and wife own and operate...

Rustic Cottages has quickly become one of our favorite weekend getaways. The cabins are historic, comfortable and cozy. Every morning a waffle breakfast is served in the lodge, and the hospitality of the owners and the staff helps make our stay a pleasant one. We discovered Rustic Cottages the year before last, and just last weekend was our 6th visit.... More

Simple lodging, nice breakfasts, good location, just right service. The cottages are clean, basic and comfortable. Well equipped kitchenettes too. We stayed for a week and it was very nice. Brownies, movies and popcorn for the evenings. Full hot breakfasts for the mornings. An excellent location 15-20 minutes to most skiing (downhill and xc) around the lake and only about... More

My family stayed at the Rustic Cottages just after the new year. It was a great experience. The staff is so welcoming and friendly, our house was clean and cozy and had everything we needed, the location right across the street can't be beat, the breakfast was tasty and plentiful, and the passes to Donner Ski Ranch made it all...

Rustic Cottage Resort is absolutely amazing! The location was incredible as I am an immense tree/outdoors lover. The hospitality was so welcoming. My fiancé and I instantly felt comfortable with the staff, especially Monica. She is just simply the best, having made our stay feel at ease. She was extremely helpful with us by pointing us in the right direction... More

Spent 2 nights there. The front desk/workers were great. We stayed in the zephyr cottage. It was cozy. The bed was comfy, shower water was hot, and front porch with table was a nice place to sit and relax. It's across the street from the lake. We went twice and they even had chairs/blankets for us to use. Breakfast in... More

I have to admit that my expectations were pretty low and I think that was because of "Rustic" being in the name. We stayed here for a family reunion so we weren't involved in finding it but I was so pleased. The location was perfect! The beach was across the (busy) street but locals are so nice and would slow... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and 4 days. The cottage was roomy for all 4 of us and the kitchen was perfect for cooking, but it could use some more pots and pans. The place was clean, plenty of bath towels and very close to the lake. I personally want to thank the owners for making our Golden Retriever... More

Rustic Cottages is a perfect little spot across the street from the lake. Charming cabins and gracious host. This location was perfect for us with Moon Dunes Beach across the street. We also walked to dinner at Lanza"s Italian and only drove two minutes to golf at Old Brockway. We love that the cottages are only and hour from our... More
