“A delightfully, relaxing, place to stay, with everything one could want provided for you!”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Our week at Jamie's rental was wonderful! Our kids and grandkids came and enjoyed it, also. It was very peaceful and relaxing for times when we felt like reading, napping, just swinging in the hammock and looking out onto the water. But with all of the different types of boats, there was plenty to do on the lake, including fishing, a fire-pit for a campfire, and nice back roads for running, walking and biking. The country store and restaurant in Benson were very friendly and helpful, with lots of food food. The house was very clean and supplied with everything one needs, with comfortable beds and furniture. We were definitely happy campers!

“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Had a great stay! The house is clean and well equipped. You couldn't get any closer to the lake, in fact at times it felt we were on a house boat. Enjoyed the kayaks and pedal boat. Teenage boys caught a few bass. We enjoyed the gamack and also had a great campfire our final night. The rooms were good but not actually bedrooms. There are sleeping areas but no doors for privacy. Not the end of the world but given we are parents with 4 kids we would have loved to be able to shut our bedroom door for privacy. Other than that, the camp is great and we are looking forward to next year.

“A wonderful place to relax and unwind with family”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We had a great time while visiting Sunset Lake last week. The lake is absolutely beautiful and Jamie provides all the amenities to truly enjoy it. The movable swim dock was a huge hit with my boys and we enjoyed the lake every day. The cabin is rustic and just as Jamie describes there are beautiful water views from where ever you are in the house. Jamie goes out of his way to make you feel welcome and provide everything you need. My wife and I were worried when we realized as we arrived that we forgot the boys' life jackets at home but were relieved to see a variety of all different sizes available.. Thanks Jamie for a great week!!!

“Much needed relaxing break from work, but close to home!”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We had a great stay at Sunset lake. unfortunately I wasn't able to catch any of those big Rainbow trout, but that was my fault. We unfortunately had to work a few days during our stay, and we liked that this was close enough to get to Rutland and still be able to do that.

The camp was great, very secluded, quiet and peaceful & Serene. The water is crystal clear.

Casey or little guy enjoyed himself so much also, and was well behaved. We were surprised how well he did!

Jamie has thought of just about everything. We brought more of our own stuff than we probably needed.

“Great Stay Close to Home”

What can we say, we had a great, clean, yet rustic cabin on one of the nicest lakes in the state (I have been to a lot of them). Everything you need is pretty well provided for you which really surprised us. Just add drinks, food, and fishing rods and you're in for a great time.

“Warm and Inviting”
Reviewed 3 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Our stay at Camp Costalotta was perfect. The weather, not so much. We had chilly mornings, warm afternoons and sometimes very wet and windy evenings. It was relaxing to listen to the rain hit the roof and the water, because you can't change the weather. The cabin is stocked with everything you need, and more. It is clean, warm and dry! The floating dock was a huge hit (we didn't do any swimming) to float out and get some sun. The kayaks were an excellent accommodation. We used them daily to explore the lake. The views, the water, the cabin....it's the whole package. Looking forward to next summer! Thank you Jamie!
