"The description and pictures of the cottage and property were accurate in thier representation of this cottage. We were pleased to find that the old BBQ had been replaced with a new one. This was our 3rd year renting this cottage (more like a summer home) and once again we found that our extended family was very comfortably accommodated. There was lots of space for everyone to do what they wanted to do from swimming to fishing to sleeping to relaxing. The home is well equipped and furnished. With young children the grassy area and shallow water area were a definite benefit." 2015
" The amount of space that the cottage had suited our extended family of 6 adults and 4 children really well. We never felt like we were on top of each other. The level grassy area between the cottage and water was also a bonus providing a great place for the 5 and 3 year olds to play.
We appreciated the cottage being so clean on our arrival, as well as having all the necessary amenities - a great home away from home on Big Cedar Lake."
"The facilities exceeded the description. A superb location, the whole family enjoyed a wonderful vacation. Would definitely revisit. The information provided was wonderful, nothing was left to chance. As overseas visitors the package was fool proof. The setting. Right on the lake and safe for the smaller members of our party. I would consider renting this cottage. I would buy it if I could. The owner should be proud of his property."
