"The website photos were a perfect representation of this cottage. From top to bottom and from front of the lot to the lake dock this cottage was terrific. As well the owner had a tremendous amount of games and activities for guest. The finished basement with the billiard table and darts was a bonus.
The place was spectacular. The owners have it so that once moved in the ease of making it home was amazing. The kitchen had all the needs to cook and the available storage was excellent."
"This cottage was more beautiful than photos. Comfort and luxury. We had a great time. There was lots to do and very homey. We would be interested in a few weeks for this summer."
" The next opportunity we have to rent a cottage we will definitelely find out if this one is available.
