We chose this cottage as it was one of the smaller ones in the area (we didn't need to accommodate a large number of people) and the price was reasonable.

The kitchen is very well equipped and clean, with a coffee machine, large modern fridge, microwave (although it was not plugged in), dishwasher (also not plugged in) and all the pots, pans and utensils you might need for regular cooking. The lounge and dining room are very comfortable with good views of the lake through the windows. The bedrooms are small and basic, as is the bathroom, but it did seem to have an ample hot water supply. The deck is nice, with chairs, a table and a bbq, but we didn't use it much as the mosquitoes were pretty thick at times. The dock at the lake's edge provided a good place to splash in the shallow water and also enjoy the sunset (deet spray recommended). The free wifi access was good.

The owner seemed very friendly in email communication leading up to our stay, but it would have been good to have everything spelled out at the start: perhaps a standard pdf document that could explain all the details of what was and wasn't included (for example we were told quite late in the piece that sheets and towels were not included, something I now understand is quite common here in Canada, but we are from overseas), what payment methods would be accepted (email transfers are only available with Canadian bank accounts, PayPal or credit card would be so much easier, especially as international visitors), what the deposit amount would be, etc., just to improve the efficiency of the communication rather than going back and forth with multiple emails.

All in all, a very pleasant stay in a lovely little cottage.

This cottage is really beautiful, very close to the lake and with lots of things to do for very busy children! We had a wonderful time, made marshmallow on the fire pit and enjoy the peace and quite of the surroundings! Also it is very close to most amenities and beautiful provincial parks, such as Arrowhead and Algonquin. Recommended!
