"We were really pleased to see that the cottage was as nice, or better, in person than in the pictures and descriptions online. We enjoyed the large deck, incredible views, amazing "wall of windows" 2015
"Our family absolutely loves this cottage. The ad on the web site is totally appropriate. What you see is what you get and then some. The View is unforgettable. The deck sits almost level with the tree tops, allowing an amazing view of the sunset. The lake is so clean. The cottage is nicely decorated. I don't have to worry about mold or mildew from old furniture. Rustic is not my style - this one is always like new when I enter it.
This is my 4th or 5th time renting this cottage and I will continue to book it, because it is the perfect one for me. I am very fussy and need to know that I'm walking into clean accommodations. Thank you for installing the ladder on the dock. A step up to the dock would be helpful for the older members of the family. But, I am not complaining - I love it every time I go there."
"It is truly a lovely place - clean, spacious yet cozy and spectacular scenery. And the lake! I love it because it was clean and quiet with a nice dock for reading and lazing about - when I wasn't in the water swimming, that is! We were sad to leave such a paradise but at least we returned very happy and relaxed."
“We liked the view, the clear, clean lake, the newness of the cottage & the facitities and the large deck was perfect.”
D. & R. Connell
"This cottage is recently built and immaculately clean. The lake is clear and ideal for swimming with a small shallow section for entry. I would definitely consider renting this property again. Cottage Country staff and home owner were very helpful during our stay. Cottage is well equipped (could use a few blankets or throws for cold evenings). Access down to the lake would be difficult for elderly or physically impaired persons (was not a problem for our family)."
"I have just returned from a great vacation. Cottage #568 was absolutely beautiful and worth every cent. It was clean, nicely decorated and very accommodating. The lake was clean, easy to access and perfect for swimming. The kids and I really enjoyed it. The view was priceless. Every night presented a new and exciting sunset. It was like staying in a big treehouse.
We would like to thank the family that owns the cottage for sharing this gem with us. We used to own our own cottage up near Rosseau and miss it very much. Thank God there's a way for us to get that wonderful feeling back. We look forward to renting this cottage in the future. It was one of the best!"
"We loved the new A-frame cottage with its wall of windows, cathedral ceiling, large deck, "tree house" feel, fantastic view of the lake and spectacular sunsets."
