A little slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

It's like being transported to another time, a simpler time, where people take the time to breathe in fresh, clean air, and enjoy the natural beauty all around them. Don't get me wrong, Burke's cottage has every modern convenience you need, from a fully-stocked kitchen, to comfortable furnishings, to games, tv/dvd and books for entertainment, but it's the unmeasurables that make this place SO worth the visit. Unlike many rentals, Mr. Burke does not charge for use of the kayaks and canoes; nor does he charge for his excellent suggestions for hiking and dining in the area he knows so well. You cannot put a price tag on the utter peace and quiet of this place; or on the responsive and friendly service of the owners. It's not easy to find an affordable cottage for a large family, but Burke's cottages delivers all this for a very reasonable price! This is our third summer visiting, and there is no question we will be back again. Thank you for another wonderful vacation!
