Beautiful location, incredibly accommodating
unbelievable experience, surrounded by water. Great fishing, the pictures don't do it justice. The whole group was blown away by the location and the cottage. We will be back for sure!
The property was beautiful but the state of the cottage was not up to the standards we expected.
The owners of the property were very prompt and pleasant to deal with. Aside from an issue with the cleaning service (which the owners were helpful in solving) our stay was enjoyable. However it is very clear that this is a family cottage that gets used by the family. There was lots of personal stuff in closets, drawers, cupboards making it difficult for us to find anyway to put stuff, as well as watercraft (not included in the rental) left on the beach. The cottage was also needing a little TLC. My wife put her foot through a deck board, the garage was very damp and mildewy and a kitchen cupboard fell off it's hinge. Sitting on the chairs watching the sun set made it easy to forget the little inconveniences but as family with two little kids it would have been nice to not have to worry about them in the first place.
Thank you Cam for your review. We try to make your stay as comfortable as possible and do maintenance work at the beginning, middle and end of summer. We will work on the items noted asap and make more room in the bedroom dressers. We apologize that the previous renter left the water craft on the beach and did not store it more properly out of the way. We were not able to get to the house between their rental and yours to manage this and the housekeeper was focussed on cleaning the house. We will reiterate to each renter in the house rules how to better store these items at the end of each stay. Thank you for your suggestions. Leslie
We really enjoyed our stay at this cottage
Our group consisted of young children, parents and grand parents. We had an amazing time at this cottage. Great location with stunning sunsets. Situated on a scenic point with water on three sides, it was perfect for all of us.
Well equipped, comfortable and very modern cottage. A fabulous shallow sandy beach for the young children was a highlight.
The owners were very accommodating and very pleasant to deal with. Would highly recommend for a family vacation.
“No disappointments at Sunset view.”
This cottage is a stunning, peaceful and well-kept slice of heaven. We were a group of seven adults and 4 kids and spent a whole week.Not a day was boring! The beautiful lake setting ever changing from Sunrise to Sunset is second to none.The cottage is big and so is the land surrounding it, the waterfront exposure is from all three sides and a perfect mix of sandy beach and Canadian Shield rocks. The kids loved playing at the sandy area, has a gradual shallow entry point, it averages 2ft. deep wading 15 meters out from the shore line even my elderly parents were encouraged to swim in it. A large covered deck which offered excellent protection from the weather where we had most of our meals, big table that could easily seat 14 people. The sheltered dock was perfect to keep our boats and equipments dry, on rainy days we could sit there and enjoy the view of the lake without getting wet. The interior is also spacious and has big glass windows facing the waterfront. There were even boardgames to keep the kids engaged they enjoyed lounging at the detached garage which is converted into a kids recreational room and has five additional beds. Campfires under the stars were the highlight point for the kids. Great location, a family vacation to remember! that ended up being one of the best cottage experiences any of us had. We usually try to go to different lakes every summer, however, this will be a location that we definitely return to.
Great place for a family vacation
We have been renting the Lake House for several years now and have been very happy with it. The property provides plenty of privacy and is a very quiet area. It is a great place for a family vacation. The location provides some great views of the lake. It is large enough to accommodate our entire family. We have 5 kids, plus spouses and 4 grandkids. The sandy beach area is great for little ones and the water is shallow for the kids to play around in. There is plenty of room outside for activities. The other side of the property is rocky and a great place to watch the sunset. There is also a garage that was converted to a Bunkie, which provides even more space if required. The kids love sleeping out there.
Family memory !
I just hosted a small family reunion at this property. I was raised in the area so knew it would be a beautiful location. However the facility and setting is almost perfect. There is an area for small children with a shallow beach . As well there is a deeper swimming spot right off the rocks. The home is cottage like- however it is so much better because of the space and furnishings. The owners were great to deal with - answering my questions quickly and specifically. I would recommend this property for a small group or two families. note - it is the "north" so there will be weather concerns and "fly" season. So plan in advance. You won't be disappointed.
Bonfire Pit available on site. Dock also available.
