Jennifer S.: Gilletts Lake Getaway

“I work with FVR to rent out my cottage. The entire process has been simple and stress free. Their communication is too notch, their expertise has saved me many learning lessons, and my cottage is consistently rented. They are great at managing the listing and pricing the rates. The first six weeks that my cottage was available, it has been fully rented. It has been quite enjoyable to work with everyone at the company and I look forward to working with them again next year to manage my rental.”


T.M.: Larks Lake Lodge owner

“I am so glad I found Freshwater Vacation Rentals to manage my property. As a newcomer to the vacation rental world, Freshwater walked me through all the steps from furnishing my house to having it renter-ready. The team is always available to give advice and answer my many questions. The way Freshwater manages my house and eases my concerns about renting is nothing short of incredible. They make you feel as if you are part of their team and we are all invested in this together. I feel lucky to find them and know that renting would not run as smoothly without them.”


Nancy Rojas-Farley: Black Bear Cabin owner

“We’ve been working with Freshwater Vacation Rentals for a few years and have been very happy with their services and staff. They communicate well with us either through their app, emails, or phone calls. If there is any issues with renters/guest they handle it first and then notify us if we need to get involved. That is huge! So happy to see the cabin enjoyed by others and profitable for us!”


David Anderson: Abbott Lake House owner

Without exception the Freshwater Team , has navigated the delicate balance between the owners property and goals and those of the many guests that look for the best possible experience they desire for their vacation time with friends and family.  Cara, Joan along with their support team and staff are fully aware of providing the best possible outcomes for both owners and our guests.

Cynthia Hansen Ellis: owner of Pearl Beach Quarters & Little Blue Bungalow

“We are so impressed with all the individuals who work at Freshwater Vacation Rentals. The staff are professional, attentive, customer-driven, and very knowledgeable. We are thrilled to be working with them and will chose them every time for a unique vacation experience.”


Pat Diedrich: former Buchanan Cottage

“Once we learned all the details of being an owner of a rental we couldn’t have had a more positive experience with a rental manager.  Cara and her crew do a great job of managing to  create the best experience for both the owner and the renter . Prompt attention to needs on both sides makes for a good experience all around. I would use this company again, should I ever be in that position.”


Kristin B.-former Sundog Lake Cottage

“We chose Freshwater Vacation rentals as our management company after being renters of theirs for 5 years. We’ve always been impressed with their attention to detail and quick response time. As a guest, I was always extremely happy with my experience with Freshwater. As an owner, I’m just as impressed. They are always communicative, honest and fair. Our cottage is very special to us and we trust Freshwater with the high responsibility of managing it.”
