Hardwick Snowboard Trip

  • 5 of 5

Very nice and clean house!! It had snowed prior to our arrival and the driveway and roads were all plowed. As soon as we walked in we could smell the fresh baked bread which was delicious!! Cottage is close to numerous ski resorts, we visited timber ridge and Swiss valley. Everything you could need is just a short drive away. This was much more enjoyable than a stay in a hotel!! We highly recommend this cottage :)

Home was cozy and clean. Had everything you want or need! Owners left a lovely treat for us❤️

  • 5 of 5

Accommodations were lovely, fresh baked bread at arrival was a wonderful touch. The home was clean and comfortable. Our family loved the provided board games and movies. The driveway was nicely plowed and salted for our safety during our winter visit. The neighborhood was quiet which added to the relaxing environment.

Great place for a relaxing get-away.

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I decided to stay here for a quiet weekend with our little frenchie. Literally seconds after we walked in, the oven went off and we saw there was delicious baked bread ready! The place was clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed. It was great that we were able to use the kayaks and the lake access is such a short distance away. Our pup didn't enjoy the lake as much as we did, but he did really love the big open yard area to run around in. And we all enjoyed the fire pit on our last night there. Would definitely recommend to others and would come back for another quiet weekend ourselves.

The owners were always available as they lived across the street and were very nice people. The lake was nice clean. Very swimable. Had a blast in the kayaks and good fishing. The lake was very quiet and private. Definitely coming back.

Perfect Little Cottage

  • 5 of 5

There were 4 of us total for a weekend stay at Clearview Cottage - a girls weekend. The cottage was neat and tidy and the beds were nice and comfy. We had a wonderful time hanging out in the garage (because of thunderstorms) - but the weather did not dampen our spirits. We did get a chance to check out the lake, which was just a short stroll down the street. It was beautiful. The neighbourhood is nice and quiet. We did have an issue with the water and brought it to the attention of Cathy, but this was not a hindrance - we managed easily by using bottled water to drink and cook with. We also were down to our last roll of toilet paper and Cathy shot over with some more (quite convenient that she lives around the corner). Walmart was a quick 10 minute trip, so if you forget something it's not a big deal to hop in your car. Plus the ride to Walmart was scenic. Overall, it was just lovely.

Great value getaway.

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for the third time and again had a lot of fun. The house is very clean and has everything

we needed to be comfortable. (That includes good water.) Having the kayaks available is very nice. We had a great time using them on the lake, getting some exercise along with some sunshine. There is a collection of maps and brochures with information on nearby activities available. We also discovered a business that provides access for floating the local rivers, which was a lot of fun with the kids. We couldn't have asked for nicer folks than these owners, who were there when we needed them for information and even left us some fresh-baked bread in the oven. Thanks, we'll be back again.
