A Wonderful Place for a Family Christmas Weekend
We cannot say enough about our weekend stay at this lovely cottage. Our large family (made up of a few small families) journeyed to the great white north on wintery roads to engage in a weekend family Christmas getaway. This year we decided to try something new - to go to common ground instead of inflicting the wrath of a large family get together on someone's house - and we weren't disappointed.
The cottage looks modest from the driveway; equally so when standing at the front door. But don't let that fool you - a pleasant surprise awaits when you open the door. The best way to describe the cottage is upscale yet unassuming and definitely not pretentious.
We were concerned the cottage would not have the amenities to house our large group -- it did not disappoint! The main floor is expansive and open plan. A well equipped kitchen makes cooking a breeze. The furniture is comfortable and plentiful. Their family pictures hung around the cottage simply add to the charm. The games area in the basement was well utilized - with sports memorabilia to drool over. The bedrooms and beds were comfortable and fresh. The master bedroom is a special place in and of itself - with an ensuite bath, laundry closet, office desk area, fireplace and spectacular views! Washrooms throughout were well equipped - the housecoats were a nice added touch.
The most amazing thing is how welcoming it is...warmth and character ooze from the place! If you are looking for chic and sophisticated, this isn't the place for you. If elegant, comfortable and upscale appeal to you, this cottage fits the bill.
Everyone from this large family gives it a thumbs up!
