"My husband is a fisherman....i am not. But since it was his birthday, i decided to find a nice getaway for him to go fishing for the weekend. I found Plank Cottages online and I was not disappointed. Our cottage was literally right ON THE LAKE (most of the cottages are...) they had rental boats if you didn’t have one...they had a swimming spot for the kids....all of the cottages have your own bbq and there is such a sense of community that by the end of the weekend you felt as if your hosts Lydia and Et were extended family. My husband went out in the boat for a good portion of the day and I stayed behind and enjoyed the sun and the sitting chairs on the dock looking out on the lake. It has a rustic charm with a good soul...its perfect for anyone looking for a relaxing time to feel like you are walking around in your own backyard that just happens to have a lake. We will be returning! And i just might go fishing next time! Thanks Lydia and Et!"
