Amazing lake front property
5/5 stars
My husband and I had the most amazing time at this lake front property. The cottage is in pristine condition, everything was modern and very clean, the beds were super comfortable and the kitchen and bathrooms were equiped with everything you could wish for. The location right on the lake was awesome with supermarkets and stores not far away from the cottage. A big "thank you" also to the property managers, who were, once again, very helpful and responsive with all questions that we had. We can absolutely recommend and will definitely book again!
- Kristina

Thank you for your amazing review. I am so happy to hear that the cottage had everything you needed. We love hearing that our guests were comfortable and had everything they needed for a relaxing time by the lake. Nothing like that view in the morning. We can't wait to have you back again.

Sunny Day Cottage Lake Dream
5/5 stars
Our stay at the Sunny Day Cottage surpassed all expectations. It is a fantastic lake side home and in a beautiful scenic location. The owner has done an amazing job of furnishing, decorating, cleaning and stocking the cottage, with a keen awareness of what guests need and want in a vacation rental. The kitchen in particular was well supplied for all of our culinary needs. A perfect location for various day trips, and a notebook was provided with detailed recommendations for outdoor adventures, sights to see, shopping and places to eat. I highly recommend Sunny Day Cottage for a truly unforgettable visit. Thank you, Tony & Jenna, we'll be back soon! G& J.
- George

It's our utmost priority to ensure our guests have an easy escape, providing everything they need for a memorable stay. We are thrilled you found our lakeside gem to be truly a home away from home. There really is nothing like enjoying the views of the lake any time of year. We are glad our Welcome Book provided a helpful resource for dining, recreation and easy day trips. We look forward to welcoming you back for another unforgettable visit.

Fall weekend 4 day stay.
5/5 stars
Stayed for 4 day weekend in October, House was absolutely awesome, beautiful inside and out. Wonderful views of the lake. House is updated, couldn't ask for anything else. Even had a mishap with the fire alarm going off for no reason, but the manager called immediately and walked us through getting it turned off, everything was fine, but it was very nice to know that they were available immediately. Great stay, we will be back for sure.

Beautiful property! Awesome experience!
5/5 stars
Beautiful property inside and out! House was very clean upon arrival. Enough beds and baths for everyone. Very comfortable beds. Well stocked kitchen. There was even a set of kiddie plates, cups, utensils, which we appreciated. The (private) lake was very clean (we were amazed at the lack of weeds in the water which is typical for most lakes / ponds) and quiet (no motor boats allowed, there were times when we were on the (provided) paddle-boards and kayaks and felt like we had the entire lake to ourselves). Close to grocery and shopping stores and ice cream. We did a hike in a nearby state park and also did a "hike with llama's" which was also very close by. Awesome experience! We had a couple friends, and then our kids, join us for different nights during the week. One of our kids brought their small dog for a couple nights which was very convenient. Another brought their 1 & 1/2 year old baby. Hosts / management company very responsive! Overall great stay! Highly recommended!
