Nice little cottage. My family enjoyed it very much - very close to the beach. A little mouldy smelling due to dampness in the summer and no dehumidifier. Not the cleanest I have stayed in, but not too bad. A real bummer is you have to travel 16km to dump your garbage at the end of the trip or the agency will fine you $60. They should take care of that in my opinion, or have a shed to put it in. Overall - not a bad place for the money. The extra guest cabin is a real plus.

The service for renting the cottage was very thorough and everything went smoothly. The cottage was very nice and spacious.The beach was not too far and was nice and sandy. Unfortunately we did not get in the lake as the weather that week did not co-operate.If the weather had been nicer it would of been perfect , but no one can control the weather. We liked the bunky, my teenage grandson lived in there most of the time,it was like his own apartment.The only thing that i would say the cottage could use is a blender and more dishes, possibly wine glasses.
