My family enjoyed staying at the cottage for the fishing derby. I was disappointed that I needed to clean the cottage myself prior to starting our weekend away. The grill also needed to be scrubbed down prior to using. Make sure you bring jugs of water for drinking, brushing teeth etc. The deck offered plenty of seating and we enjoyed the outdoor firepit. The dock location is shallow but we were able to dock our fishing boat successfully. The owner seems very nice and was non-intrusive.
