Guestbook comments from the owner
Thanks for a wonderful stay. The cottage itself was beautiful and the grounds were gorgeous. But as you can tell our real love was the kayacs. The weather was perfect and the lake was quiet. We brought our raquets but with such a great beach, we spent ours days there. I bet your deck was never used so much!! Thanks . We hope to see you next summer.
