I noticed that Airbnb calls this a "rare find" and mentions it's almost always fully-booked. I can understand why. It's not cheap, but at $150 a night this lakefront cottage seems like a nearly perfect place for someone or couples to get some time alone.

Here's just one of the over 100 reviews that average nearly 5 stars from a guy who stayed there this month:

Joseph - November 2021 - "Awesome spot. Easy to find, new and nice feel to this cabin. Great view, amenities are awesome, easy hike around the lake, good fire pit, perfect spot for a trained dog off leash, everything we could ask for for a getaway for two. Highly recommend"
