Clean well equipped and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time here. It had plenty of room and was very clean. It is located close to town but still secluded enough for privacy. It is surrounded by beautiful scenery and is close to some great waterfalls. The owners were very freindly and helpful.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful location right off the main snowmobile trail with access to gas and supplies in both directions. Lots of room for all six of us and a large kitchen with all the pots and pans needed as well as a gas grill on the porch. The snow was pushed way back allowing us to park 2 trucks and trailers near the outer edge while giving us plenty of room to come and go with the snowmobiles. The house was clean and both bathrooms were great to have when everyone is trying to get ready. The owners are easy to work with and answered our questions in a timely manner. We’re already planning on returning next year.

Our go-to cabin for our snowmobile trips!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is located right off a trail and close enough to Bruce Crossing to fuel up at the beginning and/or the end of a day of riding. From the cabin you can snowmobile in all directions, on excellent trails. Also, nearby in Covington is the Hardwood Steakhouse - great food! The cottage has ideal sleeping conditions and the two bathrooms are nice for everyone to be able to get ready. The driveway is great for our large enclosed snowmobile trailers. This is our second year staying here for a week in February, and we are already planning to book it again for a week next year.

great property

  • 4 of 5

loved the place, lots of room in house for guests, plenty of parking for trucks with trailers. trail 8 access was awesome, gas 11 miles to the east and 14 miles to the west. would stay here again. only downfall is the wifi, I don't have a smart phone so I rely on the internet for trail updates and what not, other than that I would highly recommend staying here.

Owner's Response: Hi Zane, Thanks for staying with us. We are sorry to just now be finding out that you had an issue with the WiFi during your stay - you never mentioned it while you were there. I'm sure it was something simple like a mis-typed password that would have been an easy fix. Regardless, we hope the rest of your stay was enjoyable and again, thank you for staying with us.
