Kiddos loved the kayaks! Impressed that life vests for kids and adults were available. We had everything that we needed. The secret room was awesome!

We enjoyed this rental mostly because of the shady location and Kayaks. I would consider renting here again but all renters need to know there is no dishwasher and no ice maker and you need to bring your own water. Also the shower has no pressure, so if you need to wash your hair, it would be impossible for long hair. I just didn't wash my hair and we ate out the whole time. It was quiet and peaceful which was nice. I would only recommend this property if you know all the above up front.

We had a great stay at this little cabin on the water. It's rustic but comfortable. The beds are good, a/c works well. Fair water pressure. There are step downs in the house. The wildlife is abundant. Very quiet. Good little fishing hole. Deck has dock to tie a small boat up, to access the Colorado River and lake. Full kitchen and you are the dishwasher. We had a wonderful time!

Adrienne L. We went to the cottage for Father’s Day weekend. It is a beautiful setting on the water. We did lots of fishing and swimming. Unfortunately the double kayak had a major leak in it and was unusable. That meant only the one person kayak was available and couldn’t go out with our kids at the same time. There was only one tube so I suggest bringing your own, like we did. The cottage itself is small but clean and had everything we needed on hand. There were some maintenance issues. The kitchen sink leaked all over the floor but my husband was able to tighten the pipe and stop it. The bathtub drained so slow it was like having a bath when showering. Overall the cottage worked for us fine and my kids loved the secret room. The deck is lovely to sit out own and we saw lots of wildlife. It was a memorable weekend.
