Great experience. No complaints!!!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was amazing for our family vacation. It was very accommodating and location was perfect. Being on a smaller lake made it very peaceful and quiet. I would definitely recommend this cottage to others.

Beautiful, peaceful and scenic property!

  • 4 of 5

This property exceeded expectations! Very clean and inviting atmosphere.An open concept main floor, large kitchen, the loft bedroom/ensute was lovely. The weather was amazing during our stay so we made use of the two decks. Perfect for our family of 6 and a guest or two. The owners were helpful in the booking process and very quick to answer any of our questions. We would definitely recommend this property and hope to return next summer!!!

Thanks for a great family vacation!

Bennett family.
