We had a wonderful family vacation and overall quite happy with the cottage. It was spacious and clean and had a great area for swimming. Not too deep for kids.
It was quite hot when we were there and it would of been more comfortable if there were air conditioning.
It was quiet and peaceful and had beautiful views of the water.
