There is really nothing that David has not thought about when it comes to this cottage. Its all here. You truly only need to bring your food and your bevvies. The cottage is perfectly situated alongside a stunning lake, with dock and raft, complete with every water toy you can imagine. Although the weather did not cooperate with us, that didn't stop the group of us from enjoying the weekend to the fullest. Little things added since our last stay have simply added to the luxury and ambience of it all; from the new lighting installed outside, to the remodel of the bathrooms; the addition of fans in every room; plenty of deck furniture/seating. This cottage is cozy, luxurious, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Our host, David, was a gem to deal with right from the beginning. Loved the new security system and key set-up. Very user friendly and much more convenient than in years prior. There is nothing more I can add. Its a paradise.

This cottage has everything you could possibly want. This property has all the frills of a home in the city, with a stainless steel suite of appliances, wifi, Smart TV and TVs in every bedroom. However, the private lake access make this beautiful spot a home away from home. The lake is clean and quiet, making it easy to swim and boat in. The fire pit is always fun for a family camp fire and is steps away from the lake providing a beautiful view. We were able to kayak and canoe daily as a family (4 of us) and with private lake access it was so easy to do so. Truly the swimming and boating was what made this cottage over the top amazing, beyond the wonderful accommodations. We had a great time and would definitely stay again.

Management response:

Thanks very much for your kind words. It's always gratifying when guest have a great vacation. It truly is a special place. Hope to see you back soon! Best regards, David
