"We appreciated everything. it had enough room for all of us. It was comfortable, clean and the kitchen was well-stocked. The pool table was a hit with so many. The beach area was safe, fun, roomy for gathering and had marvelous boating choices. It is near to Huntsville for grocery shopping. There are many nearby activites for entertainment. The views from any angle were spectacular."

" The location of this cottage on Lake of Bays was the main attraction. The water was so clean here, we swam every day that that sun was shining during our stay. The cottage is set high up and the view of the lake was great. There were always boats going by. The cottage was very comfortable."
"We loved the size/space available. You could have time to yourself even though we have a large family. Renting in the Future: Yes, definitely. I really liked that the owners left a little note about the history of the cottage and their family- you really felt priviliged to stay there and that they were willing to share with others."
