We wanted an easy-going romantic weekend getaway and we got it. We stayed on an off-season weekend in which they rented us the downstairs portion of the Guesthouse. It was so sweetly decorated and homey, Bright and comfortable. Clean and welcoming. We had terrible weather but we didn't mind staying in all weekend. The view is gorgeous (I imagine it's... More

It's a yearly event with my Buckeye High School class of 63 friends. Can;t wait till Sept. to go again. Perfect place in every way~Close to downtown, excellent dining and shopping. And it's a short walk down to the lake to watch the sunsets...

Where do I even begin? I think I fell in love as soon as we got out of the car. We went to the office where we were greeted by Dave. He was friendly and then gave us a tour of the grounds. Then he showed us the cottage, we stayed in #4, which is perfect for a couple. The... More

Stayed for only one night, and will definitely go back for many more. Cottage was "vintage" but clean and comfy. Owners were so nice. The weather didn't cooperate, and we couldn't swim on the beach, but we spent time walking the sands.

My husband and I stumbled upon this amazing gem while looking for a last minute hotel to stay in during our wine tour. The cottages are so quaint and right on the water, what views! We stayed in cottage #4, tiny, clean and perfect, it had everything we needed. It's like stepping back into time. The owners were so nice... More

My husband and I stayed in Rose's Cottage for a weekend getaway. It was charming and very clean. The view of the sunset over the lake is amazing ! The owners were very nice and welcoming. We had lots of privacy at the cottage as it was on the end and away from the other ones. We couldnt get wifi... More

We stayed for a week in cottage #9. My husband,myself, my elderly mother and 5 year old niece. It was enjoyable for us all. No comfort problems for mom (walk in shower) and plenty to keep niece busy, between swimming & play areas. Retro style cottage has all you would need, the point was to get away from work, emails...

Spent weekend at cottage number 9 with seven of my family members mid May . The cottage reminded us of grandma's house out in the country with the added bonus of beach front view. The grounds were well maintained and very family friendly. The couple that run the cottages were very friendly and always helpful. The cottage was very clean... More

Great place for families. The owners have religiously kept a 1950s vibe to the place. It is like time travelling into Mad Men on the lake. Great place for kids of all ages with games provided on the beach and in the garden.
