Our stay was for 3 days and 2 nights. Upon arrival, the instructions were just as described and very easy to enter. Our group had a great time using all amenities provided and the fire pit and dock make for some great photos. Be ready to fish as there are plenty of great chances ahead !! One thing to remember bring mosquito spray and a lot of it !! I would recommend this cottage for anyone interested.

Excellent visit!

Date of Stay:

Ross and his team were quick to respond to any questions we had. The cottage was homey - especially the main living room area. It was great that there was lots of firewood available for us to use without having to chop anything up ourselves. Our group appreciated all the watercrafts that were available for use.
