"We actually thought the cottage was better than it looked in the pictures - especially since the front porch has now been screened in and it wasn't in the pictures. Loved how well stocked everything was - especially the kitchen. The swimming dock and all the water "toys" were awesome for the kids (& adults!). The screened in porch was a great place to hang out and the large back deck was another favourite meeting place. The wood burning pizza oven was such an added bonus too.One of the favourite cottages we have ever rented - the lake was not too busy and it was great for swimming, paddling, fishing or floating. All 3 of our families fit no problem and we could even all sit and eat together. The wifi, air conditioning and extra fridge and freezer were such incredible add-ons that made our stay exceptional. The kayaks and other water craft gave us lots to do on the lake every day and the roads are suitable for biking too (although very hilly!). The fact that the water is drinkable straight from the tap saved us from having to lug up jugs of water and the garbage pick up saved us from having to drag it to the dump! The only caution I would give was that the path down to the waterfront is quite steep (you get a great work-out though!)!" 2015
"The cottage was as lovely in person as it was in the photos provided! The layout - works extremely well for 2 families together. Lots of space and then some! We had a wonderful and very relaxing time here. The owners and their staff are very nice people and very accommodating. And, the back-up generator was wonderful despite the massive power outage! Hope to come back another time."
"We loved the cottage but I have a lung problem so it was not possible (except once for a marshmallow fire) for me to sit by the water. I loved sitting on the deck watching the kids but they want me down at the water. So next year we have to find a cottage next to the water. The view from the deck. The interior which had so many sleeping areas and the kitchen which is better equipped than my own!! Everyone loved it and I would rent it again but if you find me a cottage closer to the water (without a steep hill) that would be my first choice. You should not have a hard sell on this cottage because it is beautiful! And if you can't find me a place closer to the water I would rent it again."
