This quaint cottage is incredibly comfortable and clean with all of the amenities of home - i loved having a dishwasher and laundry facilites!! The open concept living space and kitchen are a fair size and the bathroom is huge with both tub and shower. The ample outdoor space allows for sitting and looking at the lake out front or relaxing out back while BBQing dinner. We had an incredible family vacation with our 2 year old who loved the shallow and warm lake water and look forward to taking our newborn there soon! My only complaint would be the beach - it needs some TLC as it could use some weeding and cleaning. This would allow for more usable space. Regardless,our daughter loved it and made lots of friends on the beach.

We were very pleased when we arrived. We took a road that was a typical northern road and we did wonder where we were going, but as stated were pleasently surprised. The cottage was everything the pictures showed, For a family of five we had room, and it was great the cottage was pet freindly, I even think our dog enjoyed the get away. We were back of the water, the walk was minimal, a hop skip and a jump. If there was anything to complain about, which I am not!, it was the bay. The people who rented waterfront properties said that aspect did not live up to the pictures on the internet. As we live in Grey county we know water levels are low. We still had a grteat time in the water.
Overall we would use the systam again.
