"Having the wagon to use to get to the beach each day was a real help. The slide/swing area was also very well used as was the back deck where we ate all our meals."
M. Freethy 2016
"This cottage is wonderfully appointed including a dishwasher, really comfortable sleeping accommodations and even a bed for your dog. There was something for everyone to do but the best part for me was sitting on the dock or under some shade trees or on the front porch to enjoy the wonderful beauty and nature of the lake and surrounding woods. It was truly a relaxing holiday." 2015
"We really loved the calmness and restfulness of the cottage. Neighbours were close enough to wave to and give a sense of communal friendliness and safety but far enough away to give total privacy and contentment. We really enjoyed the paddle-boat, the well-equipped kitchen, and the state of the art TV. The views of Thorne Lake were spectacular in the early morning when the mist was rising and the water reflected the trees and rocks along the shore. The striations in the rock were fascinating, as was their towering height. Our little dog loved all the squirrels, chipmunks, and frogs. It was truly a great experience."
