Our extended family of 9 adults and 4 kids (ages 4-8) absolutely loved this cottage!
Rainer was extremely helpful and responsive throughout the whole process. Prior to our arrival, we received a detailed email orienting us to the cottage including how to get there, fishing information, what to bring (almost nothing!) and other useful bits of information. Then Rainer met us in person to walk us around and orient us to all the great features in the cottage. He also has a very detailed manual outlining all of the essentials.
The cottage itself is very spacious with a large great room. There is also a large media room downstairs which was a big hit with the World Cup soccer on while we were there. There are 6 bedrooms in total, all with very comfortable mattresses. There are also full bathrooms on each floor. The kitchen is large and very well stocked and there is a large BBQ on the deck just outside the kitchen.
Outside, there is a very large multilevel deck area with plenty of seating.There is a great hot tub which got lots of use during our stay.
Down one set of stairs is a beach area which was a huge hit with the kids. Rainer also roped of an area for the kids to swim in which was great. There are plenty of water toys including a canoe, paddle boat, paddle boards and kayaks (kids and adults).
Down the other stairs is the dock and the motorized fishing boat. Our family spent a lot of time fishing off the dock as well. There are also diving boards and fire pits on the property.
Overall, this was a terrific cottage which had everything we could have asked for. I would have no reservations recommending this cottage to my friends. Thanks Rainer for a terrific stay.
