"Great place, we love it there. Clean, well maintained. Great beach! We are looking forward to the next year vacation at the cottage!
O. Tompson 2015
"We loved this cottage...comfortable and clean. But the best part (with two little children) was the beautiful sandy beach that was shaded in the afternoon. I had wanted to write a message in the cottage journal, but I ran out of time the morning we left! I just had wanted to tell the owners what an amazing family week we had at the cottage. Our 4 year old daughter had the time of her life! (She cried for a very long time on the car ride home!). If possible, please pass this on to the owners...we really wanted to thank them."
"We definately enjoyed the cottage and would rent it again, however we're not sure on plans for next year. We were very pleased with the location and accommodations - neigbours made us feel right at home."
"It was very comfortable cottage. It had everything to make it a very relaxing holiday. We enjoyed the fact that we didn't have to go far to reach the water."
"The cottage was very clean and comfortable - we liked the private beach and lake. Great location, very friendly neighbours, very clean and quiet. We were looking into renting this same cottage for the first week of August next year. Can we book now?"
