                                                                This property is a gem. Very clean and well supplied with most everything you need for a relaxing vacation. The owners and support staff were both extremely attentive, helpful and friendly. Absolutely no complaints for our first visit and we look forward to staying again next year.

                                                                Awesome Private Cottage!

                                                                I organized a Father & Son fishing trip to the 1000 islands and picked this cottage for our group of 9 people. We boated over to the cottage using boats that we rented and found our way using the GPS app described in the cottage info without any issues. The owner & manager of the property were very easy to interact with and very helpful. The pictures and description are pretty accurate and the cottage is actually nicer than the pictures look. It is a really beautiful place and location. We cooked some meals here and found the kitchen to be well equipped. The fire pit by the dock was great for an evening fire and s'mores, making for a very memorable sunset. Water temps were a bit low for the bass but we still caught several and some pike too. We will definitely consider renting here again for next years' trip - it is An Awesome Private Cottage!
