It was a series of pleasant surprises as we learned over the course of a week that our hosts had thought of all our needs and had provided the things we needed. The kitchen was very very well equipped and there were games, towels, firewood, and so much more. The views are fantastic; I would say 250 degrees of water sitting in the living area and even more from the deck. There is abundant wildlife on and around the lake, including swans with cignets when we were there. We even saw a pheeasant cross the road and spotted an eagle as well as great blue herons, geese, ducks, and many more. The cottage was clean, comfortable and spacious with many delightful touches and we had no problems. The owners were always responsive and helpful, even though our problems were our own mistakes (losing the lock code for instance). We enjoyed Volleyball Island and cruising the lake as our most continuous activities. I booked the cottage based on internet views, so I was a little apprehensive but all the surprises were good ones and all our guests agreed that it is a terrific place. Thanks to Donard and Nan.
