The cottage has great spaces to accommodate everyone. Kitchen is well-appointed with a big BBQ. The deck is large with lots of chairs for outside activities, although note that the last step on the stairs to the spa and yard is awkward so be careful. The dining room table is quite large and expandable for meals or playing large group games. More lighting options in the bedroom would be great! As well, it would be nice to have an outdoor clothes line to hang towels and swimsuits to dry.
The fire pit area includes lots of chairs for a comfortable evening.
The dock is a peaceful place to sit and enjoy the lake which is good for paddle-boating and kayaking. It is shallow though and weedy so not the best if interested in swimming. That said, the lake is home to a pair of loons, many herons and lots of ducks. Seem to be lots of small fish too though we did not go fishing. We did find wild pitcher plants growing on the bog islands. Although no lake swimming, the spa offers an good alternative!
The lake is located in the flight path for the airport with lots of traffic at different times in the day. We didn't mind but it is noticeable if you are looking to avoid that type of noise. There are several good hiking trails in the area that we also enjoyed. Thanks!
