My kids (17 and 13) and I had such a great little winter vacation and were able to pack so many activities in just 4 days with great savings thanks to the free Algonquin pass provided and being in such a great location. Snow shoes were available at the cottage so we could go snow shoeing around the lake which the cottage is on. Arrowhead park was just 15 mins away and we were provided with a free Algonquin pass that saved us the daily park/access fee per car. There, we did tubing, which was free, skating which was also free (for those that brought our own skates and skate rentals available for those that didn't), and cross-country skiing. There are also snow shoe trails at this park. It was so beautiful.
Susan was so welcoming when we arrived. The place was clean, cozy and again some complimentary extra's that we really appreciated. The extra bedroom was used and we all slept great....warm blankets, clean rooms and comfortable beds.
I can't say enough about our experience at Blue Heron's Cove but need to mention a very important extra that we've never experienced before which is how dog-friendly they were. No extra charge to bring our dog! ...and there were dog treats left for him too. I was in a pinch and was going to forego one additional activity we wanted to try (dog sledding) because we couldn't take or leave our dog but Susan offered to watch him for us! I knew our dog was in good hands with her and her family (which I also met both her son and daughter when we were checking out and all were very kind).
We really hope to experience the cottage in the summer, spring and fall and hope we get the opportunity to. With so many great reviews I'll need to book early!
