    Wonderful, laid back location!

    This was a wonderful, secluded get away with a choice location close to a nice lake. The property is located on the river with close access to the lake. The kitchen is adequately stocked (bring some sheet pans if you're going to bake bacon!), the AC was blasting, and we had plenty of beds! Make sure to bring your own bedding, towels, and bug spray as it's in the woods that those bugs are hungry. The host did a good job with communication and was very helpful!

    Frog Hollow

    The property was nice plenty of room for me and my friends. House is a little old and pieced together but did the job. Property management was on top of it making everything was taken care of.

    Frog Hollow weekend

    Cabin right on the canal with a short paddle to the lake. We managed to squeeze 12 adults in with the couches and brought an extra cot as well as two extra sling fold up chairs which came in handy for the porch. Stairs are steep and bathroom is downstairs. Plenty of wood for the fire pit and we enjoyed the pontoon and paddle boards. Nice to have a screened in porch. A bit rustic but nice location and rental for a long weekend. Thank you!

    Enjoyable weekend getaway

    We had a great weekend overall at this rental location. The renter was very responsive for all of my inquiries prior to the stay. This is a great spot on a very fun lake! It was the perfect spot to host 12 guests for a fun weekend away. There were a few hiccups to the weekend such as our check in time getting changed and not being communicated until I inquired about the time the day before. The owner was generous in making up the time at the end of the trip as well as offer the pontoon for the evening of arrival. Likewise there were issues with the original pontoon rental but the owner was able to acquire a new boat for our group at the last minute which saved the day! All turned out well in the end and we were very pleased with our stay!

    The bathroom needs a re-do and the couch needs to be replaced The location was good except all the weeds got into our jet ski Thankfully a nice neighbor let us use his dock.

    50th Birthday Celebration

    Cynthia was very responsive to every question we had, when we asked for extra wood someone was there within a ½ hour with it. The cottage was as advertised, a little run down as other reviewers have mentioned but was functional as we spent most of our time outdoors and on the lake. The huge yard and firepit area was great and we didn’t have to worry about being too loud. We also rented a pontoon and couldn’t have been happier with that choice (thanks Franz!). We are already talking about booking for next year at this place or one of the other properties.

    Excellent location

    The location of this property is excellent. It goes out to Polk canal very close to Magician lake but looks out onto the still waters of the canal. The two piers are excellent for fishing, the pine trees smell lovely and the fire pit is a wonderful place to hang out. The house itself is more of a cabin - not very well outfitted and somewhat run down. If you're looking to spend time mostly outside you won't be disappointed, this location (quite private) and the size of the lot (quite big) is probably one of the best on the lake. However, for the relatively high price, it would be nice to have access to kayaks/boats for free. We stayed as a large group (6 adults, 5 kids), with one family sleeping on the screened-in porch. It was tight but fine because we spent all the time outside. In bad weather, the house is more appropriate for a maximum of 4 adults.
