"We stayed here at Shawn's Place this last July and found it to be very clean and comfortable. We have stayed at several cottages in the surrounding areas over the years and have decided that we will be returning in July 2007. The lake was wonderful, the boat landing was very convenient (as Shawn was nice enough to allow us to bring our fishing boat) and easy to get in and out of. Our neighbors that week were very pleasant and we would like to share a stay again with them and their 2 grandsons. We hope all of Shawn's guests have an enjoyable week as we did."
