"The Gingerbread Cottage was the perfect location for our girls getaway weekend! Clean and comfortable with all the amenities we could have imagined! A beautiful wooded setting while conveniently located to Fish Creek. I would definitely recommend this property and it's owner!"

"This house was really nice. We went with our family on my husbands side for the long Memorial weekend. My husband and I and our 2 daughters 1 & 4 years old. My brother and sister in law and their 5 month old baby. My other brother and sister in law and their 2 daughters 11 & 14. My husbands parents in their 70s. The house is directly on the lake with a beautiful view. Ample space for everyone to spread out or gather. Loved cooking in the fully equipped and stocked Kitchen. Very close to activities.
The basketball hoop, and outdoor space is great. There was tons of nets out and that was a downfall. Not sure if they just come with the lake or if the grass could be treated? There is a hot tub on the screened in porch that is not advertised so we were surprised it was there and then discovered it was empty and could not be used. That was sad. The owners explained why and it totally makes sense with liability and maintenance but if felt like candy dangled in front of your face that you couldn't eat.
We did some winery tours and went to the state park, out to dinner at Shipwreck and lunch at the Cookery. The Door 44 and Stonesthrow wineries were a disappointment. Door 44 wines were too fruity for most of our liking and Stonesthrow said our group of 6 could taste together because we didn't have a reservation and was rude about it. Peninsula did a good job of being welcoming and had a wider selection of wines.
The house had everything you needed for a good getaway. The set up is perfect for blending a big group, aside from the bugs and the hot tub my only other complaint is that it was to have 1 king and 3 queens but the bed in the blue room seemed to be a full instead of a queen. Also having to wash all the towels before we left was annoying considering the price of the rental. Small details but overall impressed with this rental. It is much more then a cottage."

"I booked this home looking for a long weekend away with extended family. The place was clean and well stocked. All the beds were very comfortable. The bath towel were soft. Loved how big this house was. We had 10 people staying in the house and 8 others came down from Michigan for the day. We still had plenty of room for all of us. The couch was long and accommodated a lot of people comfortably. The snowmobile trails were right outside our door as well as the lake for ice - skating. We had lots of wood to burn for fires in the evenings. I would highly recommend this property and hope to be back soon to visit. Thank you Linda and Ken for a wonderful time."
