Cattail Cottage - Lakefront
The Cattail Cottage is a stand alone cottage that sleeps 4. This quaint cottage has other cottages within view, with woods on one side and NettieBay on the other. With a unique retro 1950's refrigerator and all the basic kitchen utensils, and a screened-in porch, The Cattail is a quaint and comfortable family getaway. While staying at the Cattail Cottage you will find a picnic table, a 14' boat and your own private dock; so, feel free to bring your canoes, kayaks or jet skis to pop in the water. In addition, there are a couple of Adirondack chairs to relax in as you roast marshmallows over your private fire-pit.
Each lake side cottage has a compact, well equipped kitchen. Beds are ready for your arrival with crisp, clean linens.

NettieBay Lodge is a great place to bring the family and enjoy your summer vacation. Although each cottage has their own outdoor fire pit, we offer a large stoned community pit that is the right spot for evening songs and storytelling.
Lake Nettie is a great fishing lake. Species of fish include pan fish (blue gill, sun fish, rock bass, black crappie), small mouth bass, large mouth bass, northern pike, perch and the occasional walleye. If fly fishing is your passion, enjoy one of the many nearby streams of fish the secluded 23 acre bullhead lake full of large mouth bass and many large sun fish.
Enjoy swimming, kayaking, canoeing, boating or take a nature hike through 2000 private acres and enjoy wild life viewing. All available to you while staying with us in your lakeside cottage.
