Ish’s on Stoco Lake is situated on 1.3 acres of waterfront with a large lawn and lots of trees. The interior is being fully renovated this winter with a rustic and cozy cottage feel. The cottage can comfortably house large groups, and the large property provides plenty of outdoor space for games and activities. A large west-facing deck surrounds the pool and is only steps away from the river. In the middle of the river sits an uninhabited island waiting to be explored.

Our goal is to ensure that you never run out of things to do while visiting our cottage – we keep many games and activities on site for your use. Outside you have the pool, the river, the lake, the island, lots of trees, a large lawn, volleyball net, horseshoe pits and large deck to use. Inside you have the games room, unlimited hi-speed WiFi with Smart TV. The open concept design connects a large kitchen, dining-room and living-room. Meal preparation will be a pleasure in either the spacious fully equipped kitchen, beautifully finished with quartz countertops, or at the BBQ on the deck. The main floor ends at the games room with a fireplace. Barbecue on the deck while enjoying the sunset, followed by a riverside bonfire.

The river is swimmable with the current only being an issue in the spring. Rocky, slightly muddy entry, gets deep fairly fast and there are some weeds. There is a fair amount of boat traffic as this part of the river is a popular musky spot. At the bridge is a great pickerel spot. Heading upstream into the lake there are some shallow spots, but the channel is marked with buoys and large boats can pass. Downstream the river is fairly deep and has some of the best fishing spots.

The owner was very helpful in answering our questions, and was always available when I contacted her. The cottage space was perfect for a large group, plenty of space inside the cottage. The pool size was not too big nor too small either. The property outside was huge with the added bonus of the volleyball net/grass area. The only downside was you could not swim in the river that was attached with this cottage, since there was a lot of debris (tree trunks/branches) floating alongside the adjoining deck. The exterior of the cottage definitely needs more TLC. Overall though, I would definitely recommend this cottage for a large group who are on a budget since it has basically everything you need except the swimming in the lake. —Suhail (Jun 2022)


Note from KCV: the debris in the water was a result of the wind storm in May 2022 which continues to be cleaned up as more debris floats down the river and gathers


The cottage was large and clean, an absolutely beautiful kitchen and comfortable beds.—Maureen G. (July 2021)
