I did the review, but after noting the enormous thing you expected me to read and agree to, in order to do you a favour, I deleted it. You can't expect that of people! And I can't even send you this refusal without saying I have read it and agreed!!! Make note that I have not read or agreed to anything!

We enjoyed our stay here. It was a comfy and clean cottage, right on the lake. It was quiet, except for the motorboats (too bad they are allowed). The fire pit by the lake was great, and it was fun trying out the kayaks that come with the cottage. The cottage had everything we needed, and it was quite private. We had a lovely time.

Upon our arrival at 4pm the owners were still cleaning and getting their things together which was a little disappointing but forgivable. Once we settled in we started to enjoy the great location and activities. We had as much privacy as we wanted and there was no end of things for all of us to do. Good swimming, kayaking, canoeing and biking. The neighbours were quiet and very friendly. The cottage was a bit cluttered but comfortable, with all the amenities of home. Overall a really nice cottage vacation spot. Read more
Thank you for you comments, we really appreciate your feed back. Check in for this cottage is 4:30pm which would explain why the owners were still there getting things ready for you. Glad you had a nice holiday!
