Cute little getaway location. I stayed here for a friends wedding in October of 2016. Clean & new furnishings. Only thing that makes this 4 not 5 stars is a few safety things that I noticed. 1. Smoke alarms hanging off the ceiling and not working. 2. Rotting wood in doorway looks like termites took a chunk out of the...

Beautiful Lakefront setting. Inside and outside of cabin needs cleaning, maintenance, and updating. Small fridge, 3 burner stovetop in poor condition, minimal cooking utensils. Dishes in cabinets had to be washed before using. Needs screen doors to keep flies out. Doors and locks in poor condition.

When renting one of these cabins people need to understand that you are renting a standard State park Cabin not a fancy private cottage and this is why it only cost $120 to be right on the lake. We stayed in Cottage number 4 and the view was great. You are right on the water and the deck is a...

While the location on the lake was beautiful, the cabin itself showed its age. Upon approaching the front door, we noticed many dead bugs hanging on the outside walls near the lights. You enter the cabin into a kitchen area with a small fridge and a small stove and microwave. The cabin walls were dirty, with dead bugs plastered on...

We loved the location...right on the water with a boat dock so that was great. The cottage was nice but we were there almost a week so we could of used a regular size fridge instead of a small one. Especially if you are going to be fishing and don't want to have to buy ice all the time.

The neighbors are noisy and there is no enforcement of quiet hours. Cigarette smoke, though not allowed in cabins, still wafts over and again, no enforcement. The bugs are awful. The carpet in the cabins looks as if it's never been cleaned. Beautiful location but will not come again.

As far as a cottage it was Ok. A couple of things should be changed. Get rid of the carpet not good, stains just did not feel clean. Please clean the baseboards very dusty and change laying next to it. Said it came with bath towels did not see any lucky we had our own. As a girl the bathroom...

I found trip advisor after I made my reservations on short notice, and was very concerned, but I would like to tell anyone who reads them that this is a wonderful, beautiful cottage stay. We had a single unit #3 right on the lake, the view amazing, the cottage very nice. We are retired military family, and have stayed all...

I have stayed at Carlyle Lake Front Cottages often over the last 10 years. It is absolutely a wonderful place and I would recommend it to anyone!! The cottages are located just about an hour or less from St. Louis. What a wonderful retreat!! I have many great memories of my vacations. The fishing is great!! There are slips right...

This place is God awful. I came here with my girlfriend for a family reunion that was to last 1 week. I did not last here for the entire week, barely one night. Upon arrival and entering the cottage, which is more like a shack, I was greeted with the remains of smeered bug guts on the walls and weird...
