Guest Comments

“The dock , the lake , the porch, fire pit, the beautiful rustic cottage that was very well appointed and provided everything we needed to have a comfortable stay!”

K. Rappos 2020

“Thank you for another fantastic experience at your beautiful cottage. The second time was even more relaxing and felt like we were coming home. We are so thrilled to have found this gem, and such lovely hosts. It truly is a treasure of a cottage – pure heaven! (p.s. the sound of the train passing should be listed as a highlight – it’s quite magical)”

A. Verven – 2019

“In my opinion, this cottage occupies the perfect sweet spot between peacefulness and convenience. If your vacation time is short, this place is easy to get to, easy to take care of, and easy to enjoy.”

“What an escape! Artfully assembled, skillfully designed and a delightful way to retreat. Summer on Rankin Lake is awesome, but perhaps exceeded only by Little Finland Cottage. Thanks for the fond memories! We hope to return!”

“Loved your piece of heaven on a beautiful lake”

C. Bridgeman

“The dock and waterfront were stunning. The owner’s cottage is quite close but they were very respectful and it felt very private. The images are very accurate. Renting next year – Yes, without a doubt.”
