                                                              Nice little cottage with Little Glen Lake views and access. If you do not need a lot of space (we did not) this is for you. We were able to bring our boat up and moor it on the lake during our stay which was nice also. The cottage is maintained well and we did not have issues with anything. The cottage community this cottage is a part of has a community green space in the middle which has a nice bon fire pit to use. My wife and I stayed here with our baby and there was enough room for us all. A queen sized bed in the bedroom would have been nice instead of the full size though. Tootsie made our vacation easy!
