    My group of 6 adults had plenty of room for a long weekend stay and we took advantage of the fire pit in the out building. Great location directly on the lake and a few minutes to Ashland for groceries and restaurants. My group asked me to book for next March ice fishing.

    We really enjoyed our time at the cabin with our kids and family members. Lots of beds & room for everyone. Our favorite was having a fire in the fire pit house when it was so snowy and cold outside. Went ice fishing on an inland lake, the bay was not quite safe yet. Host was very responsive and made sure snow was removed right away after it snowed. Kitchen had everything we needed to make our holiday meals. Everyone loved it and there were enough couches/chairs that we could all gather comfortably and open presents. Everyone is in agreement we need to have a fall gathering there! We'll be back!

    We couldn’t have been more pleased with our stay at the River Rock Cottage. The cottage was exceptionally clean, well-appointed and ideally located.

    This was an amazing property! It had it all- sunset view, fishing, bonfires. We had a family of 12, and fit comfortably. The home was so clean and nice. Fishing dock was thoroughly enjoyed. It was in a small quaint town that had little shops and good food to go. We cooked in mostly, and the kitchen was fully equipped. This home could not have been more perfect, and it was a fishermen’s dream! Would recommend it over and over! Thank you for sharing!

    The accommodations were outstanding! The house was spotless and there was hand sanitizer and Clorox wipes which made us feel safe during this time of Covid. Everything was provided for us, including little things like plenty of ice for coolers and drinks and wood for the firepits. We golfed, shopped, swam, kayaked and relaxed. The views were spectacular. We would definitely come back again!

    We completely enjoyed our long fishing weekend in Ashland thanks to some good fishing and a beautiful comfy stay. The cottage had everything needed to enjoy our stay. The beds were comfortable, the grounds were kept up beautifully. The owner was friendly, and the view of the bay was gorgeous. We really enjoyed the screened in fire pit. It had the feel of being outdoors with the beautiful sunset view over the water without the painful bite of misquitoes. We even had deer walk through the property a few times. The boat landing being right Down the road worked out perfectly.

    The picture on the site does not do justice for the outside of the cabin. It really is a lot nicer looking than what you see. The cabin interior was clean and beautifully decorated. Outside, enclosed fireplace was a hit. The only downfall was the 4 wheeler trail was not very close. Cabin is not far from Walmart if you forget anything. If your hesitating to stay here, don't. If we are in the area we would definitely stay here again.

    My family stayed here for 4 days and absolutely loved it. The grounds were in great shape and the home was open, roomy, plenty of space for the whole family. We did max out the bedrooms and we still had plenty of room. The bonus space, screen porch with fire pit, was an excellent late night area for the adults. The kids really enjoyed the swimming area with a nice sandy bottom, a little cold for me, but still great.

It has one of the best-stocked kitchens of anywhere I have rented in terms of supplies and utensils, and we made some great meals in the beautiful kitchen. Also loved the sauna. What a treat! Would definitely rent again.

    Very clean cabin right on the shore of lake Superior. The detached indoor firepit building was a lot of fun! Property very well maintained and communication with the owners was great. Would definately stay again. Only small drawback is $5000 damage deposit is on the high side but no problems getting refunded within 5 days. Ice provided in freezers which was nice for day trips on the boat.

    We enjoyed our stay at your cottage on the bay. There just wasn't enough time to take in all of the sites we wanted, but with such close proximity to hiking trails, waterfalls and the Apostle Islands, you really need more than 3 days to get it all in. The accommodations were awesome, kitchen had everything we needed to make meals for 8 and plenty of room to fit everyone in while it was being prepared. This place is decorated well, matching that up north theme with knotty pine furniture in every room, and so quiet being on the bay. We loved the Sauna and screened in fire place, no nasty mosquito's to put up with, and as soon as it got dark, they would carry you away. Thank you for sharing your home! Jeff and Shelley Kinsel

    You can't pass this one up! Whether you are a small or large group this place is for you. Accommodations are clean, comfortable and relaxing. 10 minute drive to town for essentials. Since we visited during the bug season (June) don't forget your repellent. Items of such are not furnished. Even though we did not personally meet Yvonne & Scott; their overwhelming sincere personality was the icing on the cake. They truly made this trip top notch. We will be sure to book again on our next visit to Ashland. Don't forget to visit South Shore Brewery for some of the best beer in town.
