5/5 Excellent

Another great stay with beautiful views
This time we rented all three houses on the property. Each is decorated so well, clean and comfortable. The views are outstanding right on Lake of the Pines. A flat bottom boat, kayak and canoe are available at the waters edge. Tom and Katherine are a stones throw away if you need anything. I can’t say enough about how clean and well stocked you will find these properties.

Very peaceful and pretty.
My husband and I went for our anniversary. The cottage was so cute and clean. We enjoyed our weekend stay and will definitely bring kids the next time. You can fish just a few steps away and use their little boats they leave out.
