Great place to relax

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place and wish we could come next year. Park-like setting. Cottage is older but full of charm. Quiet small town atmosphere and close to bike trail. Stephen had kayaks we could use which was a nice surprise .

lake cottage

  • 4 of 5

The place was old but very nice. We were pleasantly surprised by how clean it was. The yard had plenty of space to park my boat and the public boat landing was only a few yards away. The lake was interesting and the birds were every where. I was very happy to be there.
