My fiend and I stayed here for a long weekend and we really enjoyed ourselves. The apartment is on the ground floor level of a larger cottage. The cottage is at the very end of a long driveway in an older, quiet residential neighborhood on a small, cute little lake. It also backs up to the dam so there is the constant comforting sound of a waterfall when outdoors and a lovely forest view. The "dock" is only steps away on the lake and was a perfect place to sit in the morning and drink a cup of coffee and take take in the lovely surroundings. They also have a nice fire pit located right by the dock and a canoe for guests to use.
The apartment itself is an older 1970's style cottage that has been rennovated and updated. The owners have left just enough of the 70's charm to keep it's authentic feel and have updated with things like tile floors, paint , fixtures and more modern furniture. Ther eis no TV, but there is a screen and DVD player. The bed in the bedroom was very comfortable and the apartment itself is pretty roomy. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking and dining needs, coffee pot, microwave, full sized fridge, pots and pans etc.
Everything was very clean upon arrival. Linens are provided but paper products are not, so remember to bring your own :). The organic garden looks like it's wonderful during the growing season, I also saw a couple of chickens wandering around! The owners were around and let it be known we could stop by their house (on the same property) or by phone, but they keep their distance and gave us plenty of privacy. We saw Tama outdoors often working around the grounds.
The location is excellent! It's located right off of 40/240 and is only a few miles from everything downtown.
All in all, we had a great stay. I much prefer staying in this type of accomodation over a generic hotel room.
