This was our first time renting a cottage. What a great experience! You really only need to bring clothes and food. All the amenities are there. The cottage was clean and had a fully stocked kitchen. The board games kayaks and bikes kept us so busy we didn't need the 5 t.v's provided. We had our whole family from grandparents to 4 year olds there and everyone had fun. There are nice golf courses about a half hour away and old forge if you want a day trip, but who needs to leave? The owners are very nice and easy to contact. We already booked for next year. I highly recommend this cottage for families to just get away and have nice family time.
