Amazing family vacation with two families with young kids

  • 5 of 5

The cottage rental was perfect. There was enough room and privacy for two families with toddlers to coexist without any issues and still plenty of large spaces where all could play. The backyard with its flat grassy area and swingset was perfect for the kids. The dock was great, shallow entry area with shallow water extending out the end of the dock. No complaints have reserved again for next year!!

Amazing, exceeds expectations

  • 5 of 5

This is an AMAZING cottage. We had a fantastic time, and I would agree with the other travelers -- the pictures do not do this cottage justice!

We were 11 adults, 2 teenagers, and 3 kids (all under 5). There are LOTS of toys for little ones and the owner, Andrea, even supplied us with a baby gate to control the 1 year old who is adamant about running to the stairs. The playground equipment is huge and our kids had a lot of fun on it. Overall, this place is EXCELLENT for families with abundance of space. We had no trouble putting down the kids for naps.

For water sports, there are plenty of water skii's available. We also found plenty of flotation toys -- one that sat 7 adults! There are lots of water toys for kids as well. Life jackets and lawn chairs are ample. The shallow water entrance is great -- our kids spent hours in there.

There are fans in every room for convenience (it was 35C when we were staying here!). The cottage is tastefully decorated, with plenty of attention to detail. The beds are very comfortable, we all had a good nights rest. The views are amazing.

My tips: Bring plenty of sunscreen, and maybe a couple of shade umbrellas. Kitchen is fully equipped -- with pots and pans, baking pans, indoor grill, etc. And be ready to have a lot of fun and "never wanting to leave!"

Fantastic Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

We were just under 20 people staying at this cottage for a weekend in June. The cottage is incredible. It was very well kept and extremely spacious. The cottage was exactly like the pictures, which was a relief. We would definitely stay here again.

Everything you want in a cottage

  • 5 of 5

This property and everything about it was spectacular. This comfortably fit our group of 23. Both inside and outside were clean and all amenities were in working order. Andrea (owner) was prompt in response to all of my inquiries. We will definitely be booking again.
