Great stay - nice private lake
We stayed for a week with our 17 month old and another couple and their child. The cottage had lots of space and everything we needed. Some nice features included:
a) lots of boats (canoes, paddle boat, Kayak) with life jackets
b) really nice private lake without much boat traffic (only 20 or so cottages on Dark Lake)
c) on one end of the lake with a great sunset view from the dock
d) new windows that all could be opened, and with screens in tact to keep bugs out
e) new large gas barbeque
f) water was very clean (not weedy) and was a nice enough temperature to swim with our kids when we went in June.
some constructive suggestions to help your stay:
a) there's no cable, some movies, boardgames and lots of video games (x-box). so bring some of your own movies if you want
b) bring a sharp cutting knife, we couldn't find one to use
c) bring bug spray as at night we found the mosquitoes came out (probably a given for a cottage)
Try the bakery in Bala, (Dons I think?) everything there was good.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments!
We took your suggestion and replaced our aging knives with a very sharp henckels set. The amazing bakery in Bala is indeed Dons - my favorite is the banana chocolate loaf. We are hoping to have a flat screen and a blueray player by next year, but for now TV, DVD and Xbox are available for your multimedia enjoyment.
