We just had the most relaxing anniversary stay at the cottage. Cozy, comfortable and spacious it had everything we needed. I was impressed but not surprised to see that every detail was thought through and prepared for the guests to enjoy.
Set of lovely ( quality) wine glasses for indoors and a set of plastic ones for the hot tub. Even the plastic ones were bright and clear not that it matters much but I like to have nice wine out of a nice glass. Anyway a small matter but a nice touch I thought.
Fire wood was dry and perfectly setup for us to start the wood stove which kept us warm all night with a very nice heat.
Cottage has a nice selection of movies DVD's and VHS with something for everyone.
Best of all breakfast was absolutely wonderful. Lyall, our gracious host, brought us a basket of fresh croissants, yogurt, granola, berry jams, and then he offered us hot breakfast which we accepted not realizing how full we were going to get. However it was worth it, West Coast style Bennies (poached egg , smoked salmon on an english muffin, potatoes and mushrooms with fresh herbs) who can resist that.
I would wholeheartedly recommend this lovely place to anyone looking for a cottage getaway. We live here in the area and did not have the time to plan anything big but this was a perfect getaway close to home. We enjoyed every bit and it felt like being away without having to travel far.
