"We had a great week away at this cottage. The weather was warm, so we were able to swim in the lake almost every day. The deck was a great spot to relax and have breakfast while enjoying the view. We even saw deer a few times close to the cottage. This cottage is a great spot, beautifully designed and taken care of. A perfect getaway."
K. & J. Bibby
"The cottage was so beautiful and we are hard to please! We loved so many things about this cottage. The view from the patio was to die for! The cottage itself was modern, well equipped, beautiful and very clean."
"The fantastic, idyllic setting on the lake. Loved the jetty and the canoe. The spacious living areas and well equipped kitchen. The big windows that showed the beautiful view, both in daylight and at night! Perfect for a family holiday."
"We had a wonderful time. The cottage was well-maintained, clean, and had all the comforts of home. We are definitely interested in renting again through CCTS, as we had a very positive experience. We loved the size, cleanliness, inventory (kitchen supplies, family room books/movies, canoe), and privacy of this cottage as well as the swimming and fishing.
While we LOVED the cottage and had a GREAT time, this cottage did not allow pets. Next time, we will definitely select a cottage that allows dogs - ours (a golden retriever) would have loved the experience and we regretted not bringing her."
