"Liked the privacy and waterfront/lake. Definitely renting in the future!"
"The cottage was neat, clean, well-equipped and exactly what we expected. We liked that it was right on a quiet lake. A pleasant (unexpected) surprise was the amount of toys, both indoors and outdoors, at the cottage for our children to play with. We also appreciated the large amount of greenspace for our children to run and play. We liked the cottage, the location and how quiet it was. The only thing we didn't like so much was the bottom of the lake was a bit mushy (but that isn\'t anything the cottage owner can control!). We had a lovely holiday and would definitely consider booking through Cottage Country Travel Services for our next summer getaway.
"The cottage was exactly as described. There were no surprises when we got there. The fact that it was child friendly really appealed to us. There was a great little beach area, a swing set and a ton of toys for our 2 year old to enjoy. The cottage was great for a young family like us. We had a great time and loved that we could bring our dog with us."
"Cottage was geared to children which suited us well, lots of toys. The property was nicely kept and inviting. Lake was lovely and warm and good for swimming. The fact that we could bring our golden retriever with us was a blessing, he loved the water. Thanks to Cottage Country Rentals for their professionalism and excellent customer service and thanks to Art for opening his cottage to us including the family dog."
"This was a great cottage. It was helpful not to have to bring toys and a high chair for our 1 year old."
”This was a very family friendly cottage. GREAT for Kids!! No complaints at all.”
"It was just as I expected. It was a lovely property perfect for small children. My grandson had a great time on the swings and with all of the toys on the large grassy property. The cottage was quite private and I liked the small quiet lake. The water was so clear and clean."
"The cottage was fabulous. It had everything for kids it was great! We all had such a great time I will be booking again with this service."
"... 2 years in a row with nothing but great comments !! This is an excellent cottage for families."
