I have been going to Plank Road Cottages for years and have always had the very best time. The owners are a wonderful family who make you feel right at home. We love that the cottages are rustic, affordable, clean and equipped with everything you need. There are just enough accommodations that don't make it too big, while at the... More

So we pulled in to the dirt driveway. My girl friend's first impression was that of worry, it's pretty rustic, so my nephew and I rolled our eyes at her and got out of the car. My nephew was so excited he could hardly contain himself. We checked in, the couple running the place were amazing. It was kind of... More

We have stayed at Plank Road Cottages three times in the last four years. We always have a fantastic time! Etiene and Lydia are amazing! Great fun for our whole family! If you're looking to stay on Rice Lake, you'll find no better!

Our family of 4 enjoyed a weekend in the boathouse at Plank Road Cottages. Great fishing, boat rentals, convenience/liquor store is just a walk up the street and the owners were very friendly and accommodating. The reason why I give Plank Road Cottages a 3/5 rating is due to the condition of the boathouse we stayed in. It requires some... More

We just returned from Plank road cottages. We stayed for the long weekend in cabins 6&7. We had 8 adults and 3 children in our group. The cabins were large and came with everything needed. The property and the cabins were all clean and in good condition. The host and his soon to be wife went out of their way... More

We spent 4 nights there in August, and between the fishing and the Karaoke, we experienced alot of fun. I recommend this for all families to stay at when going to Rice Lake or if you are looking for a cottage to stay at. The owners are fine people and very comfortable to talk with. I hope to come again... More

My wife and I have stayed at Plank Road three times in the last two years. There are new owners since 2010 and Etienne and Lydia are fantastic hosts. They've put alot of time and money into improving the park and cottages and any feedback prior to 2010 should be disregarded by any possible vacationers. All the basic essentials provided... More

Horrible. No sheets and you get charged for guests that visit you after nine who only stay for an hour (25 bucks for every visitor.) Apparently because they are using their water.

plankroadcottages, Owner at Plank Road Cottages & Marina, responded to this review

These young guests reserved for 2 people and arrived with 3 for a one bedroom cottage. We gave the courtesy of one extra person at no charge. After 9 pm, an additional 4 people showed up without approval and when approached, they became confrontational and disrespectful. 2 people left at about 10:30 and the others were still on site when...
