I want to start by thanking Pat and his wife for their kindness and sharing their piece of paradise with my wife and I and our youngest son.We enjoyed the peacefulness and calmness this cottage has to offer. Its cleanliness was much appreciated,both inside and out. The views of the lake from the cottage, the fires at night and just relaxing on the dock will always be a memory. It was so nice to just fish and kick back and relax. Five muskie,two pike,two perch and a dozen bass. We made the short drive to Minden and I can now say i've been to the world famous Rockcliffe Tavern. Had dinner outdoors at the Dominion Hotel while listening to a local band (Sheri Hawkins), the sax player joined us between sets for a beer and we all had a great time.Hit up a great little outdoor market in Haliburton and West Gilford has the coolest General Store with everything you would need while vacationing,beer,vodka,flattened chicken and steaks. I would love to make this an annual trip and hope to also check it out in the winter. I can picture a real winter wonderland. Pat was great in making sure we had everything we needed and we both have one thing in common, we're both huge hockey fan's and both cheer the Leaf's. Hopefully some day we can meet and have a cold beer while watching our favorite team, or maybe even a day of fishing. Thanks again Pat.
