"The cottage was every bit as clean and comfortable as the pictures portrayed. We love that the cottage is nestled in the forest and not in plain view of neighbouring cottages. The wrap around deck, vaulted ceilings and open concept on the main floor, as well as bedrooms downstairs are all wonderful features. We were very impressed by the quality of the cottage."
