Guest Comments

"The cottage was beautiful, very well equipped, and lots of room for everyone. The cottage was spotless when we arrived, which made it hard to leave it the way we found it, but I think we did alright. The dock was large and stable."

D. Orr

"Where does one begin? The total comfort and relaxed atmosphere inside, with a fully equipped cottage or outside where you could totally relax or be as energetic as you chose. There were so many options to keep people busy -- kayaking, canoeing, swimming, or relaxing in the hot tub, or just sitting down by the dock early in the morning and soaking in the peaceful, beautiful lake.

The cottage was absolutely beautiful, yet very relaxing. The descriptions and images shown don't even come close to capturing what a fantastic place this is, both indoors and outdoors. We forgot that there was a television and the kids fell into bed each night exhausted but very happy.

We had a great family vacation. There were three generations ranging from 6 to 60 and everyone had a blast. So many choices and beautiful moments in a totally peaceful and relaxed atmosphere. It has given our family memories that we will treasure and look back on often.

We would definitely rent again within the next 2 years."
