We spent 3 nights in Cottage 16 (a type 2 cottage). I was a little bit let down by the property initially but only because it wasn't what I imagined. I went back and reviewed their website and it is exactly as advertised.
The property is large and there are many buildings on it placed close to one another. That being said we heard very little from our neighbors and were never disturbed by them.
I had imagined that the cottage would be right on the lake. It was across a small road and up a short hill from the lake. It definitely has a nice lake view which is what was advertised.
It appears that they are updating the cottages and we were in one that had been done. It was clean and more modern than some of the pictures other reviewers have posted.
The kitchenette was handy but does not have an oven. (Again, this was clear had I read the information more carefully)
The bathroom was adequate. Families with small children should be aware that the cottages only have showers (I believe). I don't know how you would bathe a child easily. The shower was VERY small but the water pressure was fine and we had plenty of hot water.
We saw elk on the road to the property nearly every time we came and went which was fun. We even saw a coyote on our last day.
Overall I was very satisfied with our stay and would recommend it to others.
