Peaceful, relaxing and secluded

My boyfriend and I wanted a nice weekend away from the city. I left him on charge of finding something quiet, secluded, relaxing and fairly inexpensive. Leaving this up to him seemed risky, but he really came through. This cottage was absolutely what we were looking for. Not only were Don and donna genuinely wonderful people, but were gracious and accommodating. My boyfriend (who lovingly agreed to take me away from the city, and civilization for that matter) was able watch all of the NCAA games his heart could contain (they have satellite dish)while I was able to catch up on reading and not have to think about work.
Our trip took place in the dead of winter, so boating and fishing was out of the question but we were still able to occupy ourselves with nature walks close by, sunsets over the (very frozen) lake and just spending time with each other.
I would definitely recommend picking up groceries and toiletries in the larger towns on your way in, as the closest gas station is quite far away, but there are small stores for last minute or emergency items if needed.
I have personally recommended this cottage to a few friends in need of a weekend away, and I'm truly looking forward to spending time here in the warmer months.
Now for technical things: take their advice and don't use Siri or GPS to get there, follow their directions-your in the middle of nowhere. It took us some time to find on our own and think "is it really this far back"? Yes, yes it is. Also, I assure you they have plenty of hot water ;). Don and Donna have supplied a full kitchen, with nearly everything you need to cook a full meal, so need not worry about basic essentials. We were shocked that there was nothing we needed extra for cooking while there (blender, aluminum foil,wine bottle opener etc.). Great looking grill outside and pontoon boat, rafts for the water and a beautiful full deck in the back. You will not be disappointed. Don and Donna also include a nice binder with restaurants in the area ( with their menus) and other useful information.
We loves our stay at this cottage and cannot wait to go back. Highly recommended. Thanks so much again Don and Donna
