Great location
90% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Newly renovated, this beautiful and spacious lakefront lodge has views, charm and wonderful amenities. Enjoy your morning coffee with a beautiful sunrise from your private deck. The property boasts 3 lovely bedrooms, 2 luxurious full baths with steam showers, and it has space to sleep 10.

The space
Sandy feet. Boating. Bonfires. Fishing. Lazy summer days. Picnics. Simple and charming cottages. A return to the family vacation old-school style. A peaceful pause in today’s chaotic world. This is the vision of David Chiesa, and building it has quickly become a family affair.

On any given day, you’ll find David, his mother, Catherine, his daughter, Jessica, and his sons, Will and Harry, deep in the work of renovating the property that houses four cottages, two bluff houses, one apartment and a sweet houseboat. As of May, the lodge, a bluff house, the apartment and the houseboat have been completed and are available to rent.

A labor of love, The Cottages on Petite Lake is the Chiesa family’s desire to serve the community by providing a retreat from the busy world we live in so guests can connect to themselves and to each other.

Located on Petite Lake with a large private lakefront deck and beach, this 3BR, 2BA "lodge" is on the Cottages on Petite Lake property with access to boats, swimming, fishing, and beautiful morning sunrises. There is a private beach shared with the 4 cottages on the property, and fire pits are available on the beach. We have kayaks, paddle boards, water hammocks, floats and beach toys available (free - first come first serve). There is also a picnic area and fun community feel!

The lodge is across the lake from the popular "Sandbar". You have the option of renting our beautiful new pontoon boat and experiencing the fun.

During your stay
My daughter, Jessica, lives on the property. We always try to have a manager or maintenance person on site. Her house is set furthest away from the cottages. Guest interaction can be as frequent or minimal as you make it! We can be contacted through the app or called/texted directly at any time. Phone numbers are provided upon arrival. We try to greet all guests personally and give a brief tour of the property and amenities. Looking forward to meeting and sharing our passion with you!
