Amazing view from this recently renovated lakefront property!  An ideal place for a family get-away, a romantic weekend, or a fishing trip. Come and soak away your daily grind in this quaint cottage. To be so close to the water, with the options of sitting around the fire pit, or on the deck brings ease into the cottage experience.  Family members will appreciate being able to watch the kids play in the water from the deck, with the convenience and comfort of this ranch-style home. Sitting in the sunporch is the optimal way to view Pratt Lake from inside, however the views of the lake are spectacular from almost any room. There is space for yard games, all while enjoying the fun along Pratt Lake. Don't forget your 4-legged family member! He/she is welcome too.

Thank you for such a beautiful place to stay. We greatly appreciated having pets stay as we brought both of our dogs. The closed in fence was awesome! Everyone has a great time. We enjoyed everything from watching everyone on the lake to the peaceful night on the deck relaxing

Great accommodations and atmosphere! Unfortunately it rained most of the time we were here, so couldn't enjoy the outdoor fun. We'd definitely recommend to others and re-visit ourselves

Great accommodations; the website does not do it justice. Visited Mr. M's and Marios, both good. Walraven's Market and Buckeye Market, Lambert's Meat are good places for, well.. meat. Some of the highlights included evening on the deck and the loons calling, early mornings and the blue jays calling. Also the sunroom! Will be back!!!

This is my favorite place ever! Feels so welcoming right as you step in. I just love it; the view of the lake was divine. Will come again 100%!!! Some special moments included the beautiful fireworks for the 4th and getting a nice tan! Love it here!
