“We all had an awesome time”
Reviewed 11 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We stayed at this cottage on the weekend of Sept 7th. The weather wasn’t so great, however the water was still warm and we were still able to get the canoe out.
The cottage is beautiful, spacious and very clean. We had 9 guys and we didn’t ever feel crowded. Looking at the pics, I thought the cottage would be smaller but it was actually very big and spacious. I've been to a lot of cottages and have had to drive through pretty rough terrain before but getting to this cottage wasn’t bad at all. There's lots of windy roads and hills so you have to be careful of on coming traffic, but none of us had problems getting there, even with lowered cars.
The water was very clear and we even saw some fish, so I think fishing would be great at this lake. We fished from the dock but didn’t catch anything but I'd suggest taking the canoe out and there's a spot to the right of the cottage (if your looking at the lake) where the lake almost bottle necks that we saw lots of fish. The spot is very shallow with with 10KM signs and lots of vegetation so I wouldn't suggest taking a boat but the canoe was perfect. Fishing off the canoe was the only thing I regret not doing.
This cottage also supplied lots of firewood and stocked them indoors and outside so we had no problems starting a fire with the dry wood. They even left lots of newspapers to get the fire started (I wished other cottages did this). We also used the fireplace and it kept all of the upstairs extremely warm.
Another nice thing about this cottage is the fact they have internet (not dialup) and satellite TV.

I don’t really have anything negative to say except that we ran out of TP (luckily not all of came the first night so we were able to call a head) and the other thing was that the dump was a little far (45 minutes), but was on the way to where we were going. None of which is the owners fault but that’s the only negative thing I can think of.

I'd definitely recommend this cottage and hope to book it again. You can tell that the owner and the caretaker (I think Kevin) put a lot of though into this cottage as everything you need is there and the kitchen is fully stocked. we were even surprised to see wine glasses (They came in handy). Its also great that they respect your privacy, I'm sure Kevin is a great guy but we enjoy our privacy and I've been to cottages where the caretakers pop in every day.

I also shopped around quite a bit and this cottage was well worth it, considering it sleeps so many.

Hi Jay,

Thanks for the thorough review and I'm so glad you all enjoyed the cottage!

I just thought I'd explain about the 10mph area you described: this narrow area, about 1.5km along the shore from our cottage, is where our lake (Miskwabi) links to Long Lake. You can usually use a motorboat through the narrows however as the lakes are part of the Trent-Severn drawdown, it's at its shallowest at the end of the summer. We're lucky that our swimming area and the rest of the lake aren't affected.

Thanks again, and good luck with the fishing on your next visit!

Dianne
