Since moving to Canada 3 years ago this was my first Cottage Resort holiday. If you enjoy the outdoors, country walks, swimming in a river, fishing, BBQ, canoeing, kayaking and sitting around a fire or on the dock with a few colds ones watching for shooting stars (or satellites) this place is for you. Its all about the simple pleasures. My brothers family joined me from the UK and they had a great time, even their teenage daughter who seemed to be more in the water than on dry land had a great time. The area is great with straight forward pleasant locals and great food at the local establishments. We found that we did not need to stray to far to find everything we needed. The staff are friendly, helpful and make everyone feel welcome, the highlight of the week is the communal fish fry that the staff organize. The cottages are well equipped and comfortable, set in a beautiful location. My only disappointment was having to leave and not seeing any bears!
