Amazing location and amazing cottage ! Kids really liked this place ! We plan to be back next summer for sure ! This was a super getaway for us, wish we could stay for some more days 🙂 Love the cleanliness and the way the cottage has been managed.


Truly a magical place! He accommodated us at the last minute and was great to work with, the perfect host! It’s a beautiful cottage with so much to offer – with opportunities for relaxation and entertainment. We played pool, board games, had a movie night and spent so much time in the hot tub! Such a great experience!
