Relaxing , clean, very well equipped kitchen and very comfortable.
Enjoyed our stay, beautiful views of lake, swimming was great, however there needs to be steps or a ladder to access water other than the dock, especially for older guests

5/5 Excellent

Clean, great set up. Loved being on the water! Just as described. The cottage is on a busy road, but very relaxing and comfortable. We would stay there again.
