My wife and I stayed two nights here in cabin #8 "Spruce Valley" which is located directly across the driveway from the main office. As most will tell you, Wendy is the person that you will more than likely make your reservation's with and she will also be the one to greet you and get you checked in. Wendy's husband... More

We stayed four nights at Peterson's cottages and found it very comfortable and relaxing. It was great to come back and unwind after a day of hiking in the Porkies. The first day we arrived, Wendy showed us all of the features of the cottage and was very helpful. The cottage was clean and cozy. We did not use the... More

We only spent one night but it was a very nice clean and comfortable cabin. The cabins have everything you would want or need. There is even a Laundromat on the property, boats to use, and games for the family at the office. John and Chris

We were camping until the weather turned cold and wet and we needed a place indoors. We were so pleased to find Peterson's Cottages! Each one is unique and ours was charming. Having a clean, pleasant, warm place to stay was a life saver for our vacation. We loved having a refrigerator and a stove with an oven. A previous... More

We paid for 2 nights $310 at Petersons and ended up staying for 1 because the beds were like sleeping on picnic tables...and we feared breaking one of the ladies many rules..and facing even more expense...If you stay here you will find lists of things that need to be done and list's of things that you can't do...Must sweep ,mop...

We just had a mini-getaway of 5 sisters and our spouses. We all rented our own cabins at Petersons. From the beginning to end we had excellent service from Wendy and Chuck. We arrived on Thursday afternoon and left on Sunday morning. The set up of the resort was nice, all cabins were close so traveling from sister to sister... More

We stayed at the Peterson Cottage Cabin #2 and loved it! We walked the beach and enjoyed cooking in the cute kitchen. Wendy and Chuck were gracious hosts and we have connected since we stayed (I forgot something!) and Wendy is so accommodating. Dave and Sue from Rice Lake, WI.

I've been coming to these cottages since I was a little girl - my best summer memories. I'm continuing that with my children. This year, we treated ourselves to the beach house Nakomis. So wonderful and private. We had our own firepit, our own beach deck, kayaks and a beautiful home for a week. Wendy and Chuck are always so... More

We stayed one evening here, and based on the other reviews, I was expecting much more. The cabin smelled odd, somewhat of a greasy cooking smell. The furnishing and carpet looked like original from the 70s complete with wear and tear. It did seem to be fairly clean, and Wendy was very warm and helpful. She did stress to us... More

I have read all the wonderful reviews and now want to say something about our week-long family reunion at Peterson's. I have waited a year to right this review so that I wasn't so angry when I did it. My family stayed at this location several times in the 80's when it was Lambert's Cottages. We really loved it.
