Cannot say enough great things about our experience at Apple Blossom... they property is breathtaking with great proximity to all the area has to offer. The owners are incredibly helpful and readily available to help with any request. Can’t wait to go back!
My group and I enjoyed ourselves at Nanas Cottage for our two day stay. The area is quiet and beautiful, surrounded by trees and other cottages, and just steps to the lake/beach. As soon as we arrived we cooked a late lunch and off to the beach- wow was the word we all said. What a view and the waves were just amazing to see. We stayed till the sun set in the water of course, what a beautiful sunset! We enjoyed a night with a fire outside and s'mores, and watched the sky full of stars.
The next day was to enjoy the beach, we took a walk along the water and people watched and checked out the other houses/resorts along the beach. We sat out in the sun- but don’t forget the sunblock because you’ll burn. We enjoyed the water and it’s waves. We returned to have lunch and chat- of course in the kitchen. But the lake and the night sky has to be the reason why you come out to the area., and that was my only desire. What a beautifully relaxing weekend. I can’t wait to return- and now I know how to find the house.
Maps do take you to the general location but not to the exact house. You must ask neighbors for help to locate the house, but I’m not to keen to ask people enjoying their time tohelp me find my way. There must be a sign to Nanas Cottage that is visible and easy to read- not a sign under a tree with washed out print.
The cottage itself was simply a place to sleep and eat, but as one says the kitchen is the heart and this little houses kitchen was were we gathered to cook, eat, chat and laugh. The kitchen has exactly what you need, no need to bring anything but food and drinks. The house overall was simple and had some new furniture pieces and more old pieces, the bathrooms old with dated sinks and rusty, but useful. The house needed a little more care in cleaning, the fans had dust, the sills were filthy, the base boards dusty and the sofa pillows dirty, the beds had dust as you run your hands on top of comforters. The throws has a musty smells and even the house smelled of musty closed up house. Not pleasant to feel that or smell that. The dressers in the bedrooms had some used clothes in them which was weird, no one thought to look inside and throw away. I feel with a little more care the house would be perfect, even with grandmas furniture and sinks.
Please know that the houses purpose to sleep and eat, and the amazing lake front/beach are what we were there for.
I’d definitely come back to Nanas Cottage, thank you for having us.
