Cute, well equipped cottage with great water views

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely comfortable home away from home tucked away in the small community of Maple Bay. We had everything we needed - well-stocked kitchen, comfortable bed and living area and deck furniture. The views were spectacular, especially from the bedroom. Paradise to wake up to the sun coming up over the water. We'll definitely return again soon.
