Good location, great amenities

  • 5 of 5

Check in was easy and instructions were clear. Great amenities and access to attractions. Cottage was a great place for a girls getaway. Our only critique is that while the beds were comfortable, the pillows were flat and really uncomfortable. Time for new pillows! Other than that, everything you could need was there!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for letting us know about the pillows Melissa. We've replaced them! So glad you enjoyed your girls getaway! We hope you'll stay with us again soon. Kind regards, Anita

A Wonderful Weekend Getaway

  • 4 of 5

This was a great venue for our family gathering. A beautiful view of the ski hill and lovely house made it extra special. The large dining room and table held us all, arrangements and access were easy and there were no problems. It was also nice to be able to walk to the village which is a treasure unto itself.This was a perfect place for our family celebration!

Awesome place for a gathering

  • 4 of 5

What a beautiful and functional place for a gathering of friends. We got here with 3 other couples on a Friday afternoon and didn't want to leave on Sunday. Kitchen and BBQ were great, very spacious. Beds were so comfortable, played some games including ping-pong- yet weather didn't allow us to enjoy the hot-tub this time around. Water in the chalet takes a little getting used to (sulfer smell), but water to use for food and drinking is provided. Will return here for sure. Great memories! Thanks Anita, you were very helpful and Wakefield area is awesome! Must come back soon! Janice and Tony - Montreal
