The cottage was just as pictured. It was very comfortable. The kitchen was fully stocked with utensils, cookware and everything we'd need...especially coffee! The owners were great and gave us good tips about exploring the area. It's close enough to town to dine there if you don't want to cook and close to Baxter Park and the Golden rd. We kayaked on the lakes behind the cottage one day, it was beautiful! It was a bit windy but there are so many little islands it was easy to stay put of the wind and waves. The yard is tranquil overlooking the lake with a nice fire pit and picnic table. This is a great jumping off place and a great place to bring everything you need and park the car for a week. We wish we could've stayed longer. A real gem.
