"OMG the cottage was perfect in everyway. We loved the privacy of the beach. The sandy beach was so nice. It\'s hard to believe that there is so much shoreline that belongs to this cottage. It seemed like it was just us on that lake with no one else around. The lake was not that busy compared to most lakes and the water was so clear with no sea weed to mention.
I would have to say this cottage is by far the best cottage that we have rented over the years. I hope next year we would be able to have the opportunity to rent the cottage again.
The bay windows overlooking the lake was just so beautiful. The dish washer was a bonus. You could tell that the people that own the cottage take pride in keeping up to par.
It was a perfect week. I guess I have one thing is that I wish we could have been able to us the Kyaks. But it was not listed on contact so they were not touched. We went to town to see if we could rent. But nobody had nothing for rent. I think maybe next year we will invest in one. As for me being in a wheelchair, there were no issues, as I was able to do everything that the cottage had to offer and then some. :o)"
"We were very pleased with this cottage. The private point of land it sits on was wonderful; sun in the morning and move over to the other side of the point to get late day sun. The placement of outdoor tables on the property, the horseshoe pits, tether ball and fire pit, everything was wonderful. We had a fire in the fire pit almost every night! The large windows in the cottage where we could see the lake from inside were fabulous; not that we go to spend a lot of time indoors. It really had everything we needed. The privacy and the beach were the biggest things for us and the size of the lake; not too large and not too small. The dishwasher was an added bonus!! We had a wonderful time, got a lot of use out of the canoes and paddle boat."

"The setting of this cottage was outstanding. The lake was beautiful and the location of the cottage on the point couldn't be better. We had sunshine on the beaches all day long and the size of the property was great for walking and relaxing! the cottage itself was clean and comfortable and contained all of the amenities that we needed."

”I loved the crafts and all the decorations in the cottage. After looking around the cottage you could see the owners care about the place. We loved the place! It was clean and neat. The nature is breathtaking around Kennisis Lake. The view from the cottage is mesmerizing. We also love that we had nice privacy with our dog Wolfy. Lotsa room for runnin' :) !! The beach was soft and sandy as you promised. We swam a lot too! We had so much fun and we are planning to rent it again. Next year will go to Hungary, but the following summer after that we would like to spend another relaxing week or two at this cottage.”
The cottage – was wonderful – other than trying to keep it clean… the beige carpet and furniture – a bit difficult to keep clean with kids and a dog…but we really enjoyed the cottage and would love to return. Your services were outstanding – it’s really great to be able to give you guys the key things that are important to us and you do such a great job searching through the properties. This year the cottage was a 10 for great spot, sandy beach and safe for the children. Thanks.”
"The site was very private with a beautiful view of the lake. The cottage was well equipped and comfortable."
