We really enjoyed our stay. The cottage was very comfortable, no tv was a bonus, the water being undrinkable wasn't an issue as we brought lots of bottled water with us. The view of the lake is really nice, swimming from the dock was great. We a nice quiet relaxing time. My only issue was the dock was little short for docking my boat so when the water was rough I took it out. There is a boat launch 10 minutes away so it wasn't a big deal.There is also lots of parking which was great.

Really enjoyed our week at this cottage...didn't want to leave and would love to return. Loved the view from the covered front porch. Only suggestions we would make is to make it known to perspective renters ahead of time that there is no cable or satellite for the TV and that the water is not drinkable. It is unlikely that these issues would've deterred us from renting, but it would've been nice to have been aware of this before paying.
