"This is the fifth time we've stayed at this cottage and we enjoyed all of the recent changes which were done to inprove renters visits" 2015
" We enjoyed the privacy and beautiful view. This was our fourth year here. We notice that the owners replace items that need fixing every year and maintain the cottage nicely. Once again we had a great holiday. I'm missing that beautiful view and the sound of nature already!" 2015
"Very excellent cottage! We have rented it twice now. The descriptions are very accurate. This cottage is very well stocked with the basics of dishes, pots/pans etc. The DVD library is excellent, stereo etc. It has a great waterfront and kayaks, canoe and boat, paddles. The deck is excellent and the gates contained our small dog when we didn't want her at the water level. The view of the water is delightful and the sunsets breathtaking! The owners keep this cottage very clean. Equipment is replaced when needed. The waterfront is maintained regularly, beach is raked and any weeds are removed from the water."
"The deck was GREAT. Easy access to the water. QUIET!!!! Very clean. Great spot for the dog to swim. The bass fishing off the dock was real nice!! One slight draw back was the abundance of weeds in the lake, when canoeing. We really enjoyed our week at the cottage. Probably one of the most peaceful places we have rented. The fact that there were no power boats or jet skis flying by constantly was a breath of fresh air! The sandy beach was also a really nice touch, for the north. Great time with our grown children to hang out and catch up!"
"The pictures were perfect. It was set up very well and had everything you needed. My son loved the sandy beach and built sand castles all week! The firepit was also a big hit - smores every night! I am very happy I have found a reputable rental site and the selection was amazing!"
"We definately are hoping to return next year. We found the cottage was very comfortable and the deck and beach were private with a lovely view. The owners even welcomed us with a bottle of wine to enjoy - how very nice and a wonderful way to start our vacation, thank you!"
"Great sandy beach, deck and privacy. Thanks for helping us have a wonderful vacation:)."
