The cottage was clean and well stocked with everything we needed, and Bronwyn welcomed us when we arrived to show us around. The setting on Webster Lake is beautiful, the grounds are fabulous, and the history is so interesting.. Traveling with a dog is sometimes difficult - so we really appreciate that Bronwyn made our "furry child" feel welcome too. We completely enjoyed our stay and will most definitely return again.

I can't say enough good things about Eileen and her beautiful home. Everything is clean and comfortable and cozy. Eileen is very thorough and accommodating. We will definitely be returning next year!
