We arrived at the cottages and I immediately fell in love. The cottages were so clean and adorable. The pool was crystal clear and well maintained. We had a very relaxing time and the staff was very accommodating. My 5 stars are well deserved. I will definitely be returning to this adorable hidden gem.

We visited the Blue Door Cottages this past fall with a large group of friends and had a great experience. The cottages are super clean and decorated so nicely. We were not able to utilize the pool or lake (due to cold weather) but if we were the location was perfect. Despite the weather we had a great time utilizing...

We spent a weekend at the Blue Door Cottages with a group of friends. What a hidden gem! The cottages are cozy and clean and the grounds are great to explore nature, sit around the fire pit, play a game of football or just watch the kids run around. Can't wait to go back!

My family travelled here for a long weekend getaway, and we couldnt have been more pleased with Blue Door!! The cottage we stayed in had two bedrooms with three beds, and was perfect for my four member family. The Cottage was very clean, comfortable, and accomodating. The management was very friendly, and though we had no issues with our cottage,...

We stayed at the Blue Door Cottages this fall with a group of friends and had a wonderful time. The big open area was perfect for our potluck dinner as well as for hanging out as a group. The children had so much fun playing outdoors while the adults gathered around a fire. The cottages are very well maintained and...

We headed to Blue Door Cottages for a fun Fall weekend getaway with a number of other families. The cottages were just perfect for our group - well appointed, spacious and adorable to boot. The kids really enjoyed fishing off the dock, hiking, and playing on the playground. The size of the resort property was great - not too big...

This is the 2nd time we've stayed @ the Blue Door Cottages. Scott & Laurie are great. When you stay here you must remember you are not staying at a Hotel. You are renting a Cottage. Most times when renting a cottage very few amenities are provided, such as towels, linens, blankets, & the like, etc... Blue Door provides many...

This was our second time staying at the Blue Door Cottages. We love it there. It's quiet and clean. It's the perfect place to relax. Scott (manager) is super friendly and very nice. We plan on making this our yearly vacation spot.

We took family members here early in June right after school was out before the children became busy with summer activities. Our two cottages were great for having two bedrooms each; each kitchen area was equipped adequately for breakfast and lunch, but we enjoyed local restaurants for dinner. We could easily have eaten 'in' though. We used their pontoon boat...

My husband, my son & myself recently stayed five nights in cottage #4. We felt like we were miles and miles away from home when in truth - we were a little over an hour away. Our 'home' for the week was very clean with all of the necessities to feel like home. The pool was within steps from our...
