"Hard to find new & different superlatives, but here's an encapsulation: one week was NOT enough.... This cottage had everything, & though we'd like to thank the landlords for providing excellent weather, along with all the other amenities, I guess that would be overstating it. But everything they did provide, from location to accommodations to wildlife to relaxation (& okay, great October weather) was top-notch, & a second visit is definitely in order. The photos accompanying the listing tell the story; they were a large part of what attracted us in the first place.
We celebrated my birthday & our anniversary there, & those celebrations included a small party. One of our friends remarked 'This place is so clean!', to which my husband replied, 'Yes, but we've only been here one day....' However, we kept it looking pretty much as we'd found it; didn't require a lot of effort, happily. We had a chance to meet owners Darcy & Maureen & to gab with them on a couple of occasions, & they didn't throw us out. Nor did they cringe when we said we'd be coming back.
We are Great Lakes people from childhood (I was born in the city of Niagara Falls, NY), & we currently live only 90 minutes away from this idyllic spot, so for us, it is the ideal place for a getaway. We recommend it highly in every particular, & even if getting there requires a longer trip, it is indeed a worthwhile destination.
Bravo, D & M. We look forward to seeing you & the lake & the ships & the Bald Eagle again!"
