Guest Comments

“It was an overall beautiful cottage with stunning views. The travel package was very helpful in providing all the information required throughout the stay. We loved Swimming in the deep clean lake water, the beautiful views from the cottage, the amount of rooms, the internet/tv for movie nights, the cozy cottage feel and the hot tub.

“Every single interaction with CottageRental.com was a pleasure. The travel package and ALL the instructions, from rental to lockbox key instructions was thorough, well organized and answered all questions. Very professional, everything you could want to know was in the information we received. The sheer physical size and space of the cottage was fabulous, as we had enough room to be together, but also to find an indoor or outdoor nook to read or nap if wanted. The kitchen is amazing, big enough for all of us and so well equipped! We wanted for nothing. We are a family of cooks, so we were able to cook together and eat together comfortably. The dive tower was a big hit, as was the hot tub. The first-floor outdoor deck was great too. Everything was great, we can’t wait to come back!!! The cottage exceeded all our expectations and was fabulous. The owner has thought of everything you could possibly want or need. Well maintained and clean, it was a pleasure.”

“This cottage is in a beautiful location, and close to Baysville. It is as large as it looks in the photos. As a family who enjoys cooking our own meals, we appreciated the well stocked kitchen. The brand new refridgerator was a bonus! This cottage has two big levels which appealed to the teens in the family. They really enjoyed the big TV, the pool table and the hot tub. The diving tower was a huge hit, and the water was beautiful, even in late August. We enjoyed the lower deck where we had our cocktails, and the big main room where eight of us were able to take our meals at a massive table. We rented paddle boards from Baysville Marin who delivered them to the door. Of course, the paddle boats provided, were a hit with the older and younger members of our group.”

K. MacGinnis – 2019

“We appreciated everything. it had enough room for all of us. It was comfortable, clean and the kitchen was well-stocked. The pool table was a hit with so many. The beach area was safe, fun, roomy for gathering and had marvelous boating choices. It is near to Huntsville for grocery shopping. There are many nearby activites for entertainment. The views from any angle were spectacular.”

” The location of this cottage on Lake of Bays was the main attraction. The water was so clean here, we swam every day that that sun was shining during our stay. The cottage is set high up and the view of the lake was great. There were always boats going by. The cottage was very comfortable.”

“We loved the size/space available. You could have time to yourself even though we have a large family. Renting in the Future: Yes, definitely. I really liked that the owners left a little note about the history of the cottage and their family- you really felt priviliged to stay there and that they were willing to share with others.”

P. Ramirez

Yes, cottage was great and as-advertised. We were a big group (mostly kids) and there was plenty of room. All the kids loved the jumping platform; they would probably say that was the highlight! And yes, I would rent this cottage again.
