Welcome to Sweetwater Shores -

There's been a few changes for 2017 -- We have retired, and are making this our full time residence. We're not closing to guests, though! When we have guests, we will be staying in another building on the property. The other big change is that old faithful pontoon boat gave up the ghost last summer, so we we won't be able to offer it for use for our guests.

The cottage and surroundings were absolutely perfect for a week of chilling out, playing in and on the water, roasting marshmallows in the evenings, and watching movies on the rainy days. The cottage had EVERYTHING we could need or want, including kayaks and a pontoon boat. We spent...

The cottage is cozy and comfortable and in a perfect location. The kitchen was very well equipped. We used the pontoon and had a great time touring the lake and my husband and son enjoyed fishing. We cannot wait to return next summer!

Management response:

So glad you enjoyed your stay here, we're looking forward to having you back!

So glad you enjoyed your stay here. Really wish we could have done something about the zebra mussels! I'm now hearing that the recent winter has something to do with them being in places they haven't been before. Thanks for letting us know, we're letting all our other guests know before they come, that they need water shoes. Hope to...
