"The whole cottage and kitchen being so clean and modern, beach and dock setting were amazing with the use of the kayak and pedal boat that my children loved made the vacation. Also the wildlife that visited the cottage - deers, turtles, fish - great place for fishing off the dock."
P. Potter 2016
"The small beach area was great for our kids. The kitchen and family room area were modern and open and had all the conveniences that we needed.Heron Cove is a fantastic cottage! The lake is clean and quiet, and the small beach area is great for kids to play. The cottage itself is modern and has many of the amenities you would need on vacation."
A. Cronin 2015
"This cottage was exactly as advertised. It was tastefully decorated with all the amenities of home - yet nested in a beautiful country setting. Jacks Lake is quite beautiful and although there are other cottages very close by everyone was respectful of each otherís privacy."
"We were so pleased with the cottage and the pictures on the website were EXACTLY what you got! The travel package provided ALL details required to rent this cottage. It provided clear and concise information about check-in, cottage location, lock code, etc. The newly renovated cottage was an absolute joy to stay in! Jacks Lake is beautiful too! The cottage kitchen was FULLY equipped with all necessary pots, pans, dishes, cutlery, cups, etc--a joy to cook in! Loved the table off to the side (by the laundry area) where we enjoyed many a family board game during the evenings :) We had an absolutely amazing time at cottage 485 on jack lake. We really enjoyed our bonding time as a family up at this cottage. Beautiful lake, lovely cottage, fun place!"
