Clean, warm, secure, spacious inside and out (balcony and further decked area.) Quiet but very close to the lake, supermarket, restaurants. Pleasant walk along the shore into the main town. Customer service was friendly and efficient. Loads of outdoor activities available.

She gave us great advice on where to go for food and all the places she recommended were great. The cottage itself is down a small trail with one other house nearby it. It is really quiet, has no wifi and mobile signal isn't very good which is exactly what we wanted as meant we could totally switch off from work. The cottage has everything you need; we particularly enjoyed the log burner in the evenings! Thank you!
