Amazing stay at Boulder Bay Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and family loved staying at Boulder Bay Cottage! It is a very beautiful and calm area and the lake and its views were amazing and the home was lovely. Even though we were not able to use the batoon boat, the kayaks were fun to use and the fire place, jacuzzi and grill were a plus! The owners made sure to answer our questions quickly and made everything super easy. Overall, great stay I wiuld totally recommend it to anyone!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was well kept and spacious. Definetly would like to do it again some time soon. Great for entertainment or if you just want a romantic night with your significant other. Lake was beautiful with all the snow as well as the view of the mountains from the bedroom window. Just an awesome stay.

Our stay was outstanding! Not only did we get 20 inches of snow, the cabin was so inviting!.

  • 5 of 5

The location was excellent; quiet and calm. The view was beautiful and with 20 inches of snowfall we couldn't ask for more. The jacuzzi worked perfectly. The cabin was spacious and accommodating. Just the right size for our family of six. There was a hill so we could go sledding and it was a blast. We built snowmen and had snowball fights. The town was just far enough away so we didn't have to deal with noise and lots of people. Went there to shop, go to the movies, and that's it. We would return to this location every time. Coming from Hawaii, that says a lot.

The property was very comfortable, clean and well stocked with linens and kitchen items including quality coffee and breakfast fixings. The provision for a pet was perfect! Dennis went out of his way to make sure the price was fair and our stay was wonderful. Thanks Dennis!

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 stayed for a week and it was a great time. the cabin is very nice and offered everything you would need. Dennis was very easy to deal with. I had let him know we couldn't find the coffee but we had bought some and he made a special trip to make sure we got some. I highly recommend the cabin. The water level was very low but we were able to use the boat from the marina and we all enjoyed the lake even though the fish weren't biting. Will stay there again.
