We were very pleased with our stay at this cottage. Very nicely appointed and perfect for a large family. The view was amazing.and we really enjoyed sitting down by the water. The weather was extraordinary for Thanksgiving weekend. Owners were very responsive to our question. Hope to visit again in the future.

Best summer vacation!

  • 5 of 5

A group of 7 of us friends and couples stayed this past July at the Billabong Inn. It was the best week! There are no words to even describe how much we loved this cottage. It was clean, bright, big, and had everything we needed. We loved meals out on the deck, days out on the dock and evenings spent by the fire. We swam, we canoed, peddle boated, fished and enjoyed the sunshine while it was around. The rooms were beautiful and there was lots of space for the 7 of us to be. We never felt crowded or like we were in each others way. The owners were also quick to get back to us when we had questions, which we really appreciated! The town was cute, the brewery was cool and groceries were not too far. The day we left we all felt so sad. None of us wanted to go back to work or reality. I think it took me at least a week to get over the fact that I was back in the city and didn't have dock legs anymore.

If you want a great escape, this is the place to be! We already have a countdown going to summer 2018 when we can be back! ;)

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.
