Drakes Nest is an incredible place! The view is spectacular and you really can’t get any closer to the lake. Jerry is an incredible host, extremely accommodating, helpful, quick to respond with any info needed and offered helpful suggestions. The deck overlooking the lake simply can’t be beat. The place is so close to everything, but also feels secluded in a private house w private deck. The living area is very comfortable, the bedrooms were spacious and the loft upstairs is great. Great view is the lake from anywhere in the house. We came for Autumn Glory fest and we hope to come back each fall for many years to come and would love to stay at Drake’s Nest again in the future!

Had a great stay! Very good location with nice views of the lake and close to a lot of restaurants and activities. Very good host whose process made check in and check out very easy. Could use some furniture updates and maybe some updates to bathroom hardware as well, but nothing that significantly detracted from the stay. Overall it was super cozy and we had a a great weekend!

Drake's nest is right on the water. Nicely equipped kitchen with plenty of dishes (lack of dish washer). We had a sick child which requires special diet, we had no problem making the food at Drake's. The nice big porch is right outside of the kitchen. Owner, Jim, is very responsive in term of answering any questions we have about his house. We had a pleasant relaxed trip.

We had an amazing time at your lovely nest. Future guest should make sure to have activities planned before hand because it can get a tad boring just sitting around... If the water was warmer I bet it would have been more entertaining, it was just so chilly! Other than that , your nest was absolutely stunning. The one and only negative that both myself and Girlfriend agreed on was the beds. We both got horrible sleep both nights and being tired and sore can certainly put a damper on the vacation. Even just a foam mattress pad I think would make it more comfortable and take this stay from a 4 star up to a 5 star accommodation. Jerry was an amazing host and was top notch when it came to communication.
