"As other reviewers have stated, the owners of this cottage are very gracious and welcoming in every detail of making the experience wonderful. Our daughter, son-in law, and two "city" grandsons, 9 and 10, thoroughly enjoyed their week long vacation. Pam offered their kayaks to the "guys" who became quite adept and comfortable using. Although our grandsons can swim, I am glad we purchased life jackets in advance for their kayaking, and lake enjoyment in general and peace of mind for parents.
The view of the lake from the cottage deck is postcard perfect, so quiet and tranquil....just what the human spirit yearns for to "rejuvenate". Yes, the steep driveway to the cottage is daunting at first. However, once you know what to expect on foot or in your vehicle, you develop a comfort level....and my spin, it is part of the whole "cottage" experience".
We found the cottage itself quaint, comfortable and inviting from the homey warmth inside to the tree shaded deck outside with comfortable seating to enjoy the splendor offered by the lake views. Our daughter's family utilized the grill nightly on the deck and enjoyed dining on the deck's picnic table.
The owners Pam and Doug have a binder of things to do in the area and our daughter's family utilized. Their favorite was the "retirement" home for wildlife (bears, tigers, lions, etc.), a 30 minute drive. They raved about this gem...better than any zoo.
Wonderful memories and hopefully with a return visit in the future...."
