The last 15 minutes or so of road leading to the cottage are twisty and wild and should be driven cautiously. The drive is worth it, though because the location is beautiful and feels quite private.
The property is clean and well maintained. It is obvious that the owners care about renters having a good experience. The main cabin has rustic decor and a functional layout and all of the kitchen and living space necessities are provided. The large deck system attached to the cabin is it's best feature and has some stunning views of the lake. There is also a nice picnic table and BBQ for out door dining.
The boathouse is very handy if you have members of your group who would like a little more quiet or privacy. We were particularly impressed with how clean the boathouse was, given that it was detached from the rest of the living area. It has a sitting area with a TV, as well as a nice screened-in porch attached to the front of it. While we were impressed with it overall, we would have appreciated if the sliding doors to the sleeping area had curtains to make it a bit darker and more private while sleeping. The beds were also very firm and could use a mattress topper of some kind.
I forgot to take any pictures of the interior before we had spread our belongings out, but the pictures provided by the owner are fairly accurate. If anything the cabin was actually more spacious than we were expecting based on the pictures.
Sound seems to travel across the lake fairly well, so if it is a long weekend you may expect to hear some music, laughing, etc.
One other thing to be aware of when planning your trip is that the running water for the cabin is drawn from the lake, and you will have to provide your own drinking water (the owners can also provide a large cooler bottle for $10).
