Let me first say that I was not expecting luxury accommodations or even modern decorations. This would probably be a great place for a bunch of fellas to get together for a fishing trip, but not if any of the guys were concerned with any amount of cleanliness. In our room, there was a great deal of unnecessary filth. Our...

These cottages were simply perfect for our week of fishing on Lake Erie. Clean, quiet, and well maintained. Boat docking available right there and fish cleaning area... ( I know... Who cleans their own fish anymore? ) Well, I do so it was great to have it all set up right when you get off your boat. This worked out...

My husband and his uncle's went there for a week long fishing trip. The place was nice & quite close to the water, bait store, and restaurants. The cottage was clean and cozy. It needs a little bit of a update mostly in the bathroom had a very small shower with no tub. The air conditioning is only a window...

Hi Pauline! Thank you for your comments! We appreciate you taking the time to respond. Regarding the tiki bar, it is a "Bring your own drinks"/cooler sitting area at the pool. It is not a "real" bar, as we do not serve alcohol. Sorry for any confustion. We also regret the air conditioning situation. It was temporary & once the...

This is a great place for fisherman to stay while in the area fishing. Their property is right on the shore of Lake Erie and they have dockage. They provide a fish cleaning area that definitely caters to us fisherman and was greatly appreciated. The rooms are clean and comfy. The cabins contain a kitchen, microwave, fridge, stove and coffee...

Pool was not open, and this was on Memorial Day weekend. Outside of cottage looked nice...inside was gross. Mattresses were ridiculously old, just springs, made noise every time we moved at night. Screens were dusty, carpet was stained, and had rips on it. I was disgusted to be there with my kids, sheets were stained and everything was old or...

Hi Anja! We appreciate your comments, as we are constantly striving to improve our facility. Regarding the mattresses, we have replaced 90% of the mattresses in the past two years. Unfortunately, you were in one of the adjoining cottages that sleep 7-8 people, and they are scheduled to be done this fall. We were in the process of refurbishing the...

We have been traveling to LT for probably 10 years! We always go back! Sandy & her husband run a great business!! Cottages are clean and have everything you need! It should be mentioned this is a fisherman's village lodging! Only necessities are here. It does have air conditioning and we have never run out of hot water for showers!...

Recently stayed here with friends. Place was spacious and clean. We had no trouble checking in or out. Staff is friendly. Beds and linens are comfortable. Full service kitchen. Had no sponge though to wash plates and pans. Pool area nice, but it was too cold for us to swim during our stay. Free wifi with purchase of room.

If you want to fish, it is s good place to stay. However, if you are looking for a nice cottage to stay in and relax, it is far from it, the interior is early ugly. The exterior is nice, good location to the state marina, there is a boat marina onsite to dock your boat and the pool is...

If you're only staying a day or so it's suitable. However, we had work to do up there and needed to stay the week. The beds have got to be the worst I ever slept on ~ even changing which bed I slept in didn't make a difference, they were all horrible. The "office manager" quoted me a price by...

In response to this and other guests' feedback, we installed new beds and mattresses in over half of our cottages for summer 2015. This upgrade should greatly improve the guest experience without any change in rates. I'm very sorry to hear about this guest's disappointment and apologize for the confusion regarding pricing. We are a small, family owned operation and...
