Blue Heron Cozy Cottage
Beautiful, comfortable cottage with high-end furnishings. Fantastic deck overlooking beautiful, clear Skeleton Lake. Covered outdoor eating area was very convenient on a rainy day. Cottage is part of a large family compound with friendly hosts.

Slice of paradise!
We had a wonderful stay at The Blue Heron Cottage. The beach front was beyond perfect for our 3 year old and 10 mo old who enjoyed the shallow, sandy beach front (not weedy at all) and easy swim to floating dock. Lots of activity options! The indoor living space is small and cozy. On Rainy days we spent our time under the outdoor sitting area, which had plenty of coverage. End of August had minimal mosquitos, the water was still warm for swimming, mornings and evenings were chilly but the cottage is warm and the outdoor fire pit was always going :) Beds and living space are comfortable, internet worked well, Note - No oven but stovetop and all other kitchen needs are there. The cottage is located in a super private area, across from crown land. We really felt like we had our own space. We will definitely be booking again! Can't wait to come back! Thank you so much for an awesome stay :)

Stunning Cozy Getaway
Enjoyed the week with my wife along with our daughter, son-in-law and 2 grandchildren. For the size of the cottage, the space was well utilized and the covered porch was outstanding. Property was beautiful, beach and water were great and lots of paddle boards, kayaks, canoe's and paddle boat for our use. Our other daughter and her family visited from the south west side of the lake. Steve and Jill visited one day and had a great chat. Definitely a strong consideration for a future visit but much suited for a couple of family of 4 but we made it work. Thanks for everything Lorrie

5/5 Excellent

Excellent property, location and communication.
We had a terrific time at Steve and Jill's cottage. The location was idyllic and the cottage was cozy, clean and perfect for our family. We enjoyed use of the kayaks, paddle boards, canoe, and BBQ. Lorrie was an excellent communicator. Great proximity to both Huntsville and Rosseau. We so enjoyed an impromptu horn and flute recital on the next dock on a Monday morning in our little bay. What a delightful surprise!

Beautiful guest cabin
Nice guest cabin right on the water of a quiet bay with nice water and beach for swimming. Cabin is best for 4 people or less. Road in is fairly short but pretty rugged.
