Pretty good

  • 4 of 5

It is a very nice property, right in the woods. Everything you need is there.

If there's one friendly suggestion, it would be to make arrangement for picking up the garbage. It is inconvenient for the guests to haul the garbage to a dump at the end of the stay.... after paying a cleaning fee.

Thanks for a nice weekend.

Amazing Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cottage for 4 nights, total of 6 people and one dog. Loved every minute of it- the dock is a short walk away from the cottage, but thanks to some super friendly neighbours we didn't have any problem finding it! The cottage itself was very comfortable with more than enough room for all of us. Nice to have the dishwasher and laundry machines as well! At first I was surprised at how close the property was to the main road, but the neighborhood is so quiet that it's not even an issue. Great experience, would definitely rent again in the future. Thanks for such a pleasant and relaxing experience!

Beautiful cottage, it was difficult to leave!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time relaxing in the cottage as well as on the water. The cottage is spacious and open and feels homey with all the wood. The front window offers a fantastic view of the woods and deer passing through the front yard. The dock is just a short walk down the street and has a nice gradual sandy bottom for easy swimming and getting in and out of our canoe. It was also great that they allow pets as our dog loved it too :) Just wish we could have stayed longer!

Amazing weekend retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We found this property after looking through dozens of cottages. The cottage is exactly as described, very clean, everything you need and what a beautiful drive!

What really made our stay enjoyable was the hospitality of the owners, they were amazing!

Will definitely be back.

Total Relaxation

  • 4 of 5

What a great place! We were 6 adults staying at the cottage for the May long weekend and it was beautiful. The cottage was just the right size for 6 adults. The area is peaceful, quiet and had everything we needed, except for a pot (we wanted to boil corn!).

It was everything we expected and more. The town of Huntsville is just 20 minutes away and beautiful! Stopped for a drink at "On the Docks Pub", great spot. We really just enjoyed staying at the cottage and enjoyed the beautiful weather so there is no need to leave if you want some R&R. We even had our own deck at the lake!

Thanks Ian and Amie, we highly recommend this wonderful hidden gem. We would love to return next year!
