This cabin has been in my family for over 40 years, and we love to share it's charm with the world! Sleep like a log in our one-room charming cabin on a small private lake lot with non-motor boats only.  Little Elk Lake is 43 acres.  Queen bed with linens provided, plus 2 adult cots with pads and sleeping bags.  Rowboat plus 2 youth kayaks and two adult kayaks available for your use, and we have life jackets in many sizes.  We are sorry but the pontoon boat cannot be used by guests. The fishing is EXCELLENT and bring your binoculars - BALD EAGLES frequent the lake!   We want you to have so much FUN during your visit, but we are not a party spot.  The lake is rural and quiet, and so we must request low noise levels after 10 pm in order to keep our neighborhood HAPPY!  :) We welcome everyone, including the LGBQT community and folks from all ethnicities.  You'll feel like you are coming home to a safe haven and all guests will be treated with kindness and respect here at Sunset Shore! Don't waste one moment of lake time!   GROCERY, PHARMACY and EVEN HOMEGOODS delivery is available.  Our local large grocery chain Price Chopper,  Rite Aid and Family Dollar all deliver to the cabin.  The name of the app is INSTACART.   NEW - a Smart TV to keep those little ones entertained on rainy days. A WIFI Hotspot is available in the add-on section of your reservation.  We also have a DVD player with a few family-friendly movies.  Games, coloring books and drawing paper, etc. are in the cabin.   ALSO NEW - We have cold and HOT water at the kitchen sink and a large private outdoor shower/changing room. We ask guests to conserve water since we are hauling water and pumping it into a 275-gallon outdoor tank.   Favorite Local Attractions: Foolish Pleasures Hot Air Balloon Rides-  They "splash down" on the lake on many evenings!

Sunset Shore Cabin on Private Lake
Lakeside Oasis 🏕️🌞♥️🌲
This property is a slice of heaven! My husband and I had the most beautiful stay with our 3 year old cockapoo Auggie. The cabin was clean, organized and had everything that we needed to for a fabulous stay! The grounds were relaxing and serene- we enjoyed coffee on the dock and read for hours, followed by fireside dinners each night. Our pup even experienced his first canoe ride- he absolutely loved it! 5 stars. We will most certainly be returning. Thank you Jennifer!

No labor on this Labor Day
We spent Labor Day weekend at the cabin and it was absolutely beautiful! While others were roasting in oppressive heat we were on the lake enjoying our time together completely unplugged with beautiful weather. We boated, swam, fished (caught largemouth bass everyday), and just simply relaxed napping on the deck by the lake in the afternoon and watching a sunset in the evening or roasting marshmallows on a campfire. It was also very special to see the Bald Eagle majestically soaring in the sky, hunting fish and resting up in his nest in the tall pine across the lake. It was just what we needed. Jennifer and Jeff were very responsive to our needs. This is our 2nd time at the cabin and it was just as lovely as it was last year. Thank you Jennifer & Jeff for sharing your enchanting cabin on the beautiful Little Elk Lake. We will be back!

Jennifer’s cabin was so peaceful & relaxing. The dock & reclining chairs by the water were one of my favorite things - and I did yoga on the dock in the morning. So serene and a perfect way to rejuvenate. Also recommend Kool Cow ice cream 15 min away!

We enjoyed our week at Jennifer's lake camp. Albeit small, the cabin was cozy & well equipped (overall). The bed & linens were great. The kitchen was good. (You might want to bring a favorite pot or skillet). It is evident that the owner's have put a lot of thought and care into the cabin & the site. The lake is beautiful and was quiet when we were there in late August. My husband enjoyed the swimming. (I stayed out only because the air was a bit cool. We spent late morning- mid-afternoon out exploring the area, so swimming happened late afternoon.) I will say, I'm still recovering from a significant knee injury and the walk to the lake & port-a-potty, while very doable, required me to move slowly & carefully. Overall, it is a very welcoming space.
