The photos led us to expect more space inside and out, and we were surprised by the small size of the bathroom, bedrooms, and kitchen. This is definitely not a workable place for three couples to stay, especially if five of the six people are over six feet tall! That said, the cottage grew on me after a day or two, and even the traffic noise became less annoying. The screened-in porch is very nice, with a nice lawn and grassy bank below the road making up for the disappointment of not looking at the lake or mountains. It's actually impressive how many different houses and cottages are fitted into the little area of lakeshore, and once you've walked to the beach area and focus on the lake the view, cool clear water, and bit of sand are quite satisfactory. The interior walls are white and there's not a lot of visual clutter. Two suggested improvements are: screens on more of the windows (at least one per bedroom!) and a less sensitive smoke alarm.
