Customer Reviews

“Perfect Place”
Reviewed on Trip Advisor - 20 November 2014
"I stayed in cabin 1 for over a month for work. It was a great place to stay. Bill and Suzan were very friendly and helpful. The cabin has everything you need with a full kitchen, satellite and Internet. The place is dog friendly and right on the water. I would suggest any one to stay here, would be great for a family holiday."

“What a wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed 29 July 2014
"We stayed here in June 2014. It was everything we hoped for, and more. Quiet, peaceful and totally charming. The cottages have everything you would need to be self sufficient. If you don't want to go hiking or go to town, you can just stay there and go canoeing, swimming or just hang out, read or take a pottery lesson, which I did. While my husband went hiking, Sue showed me how to fire my bisqued pot in a barrel. Your hosts are very helpful and willing to give directions and advise about the surrounding area. I cannot say enough about how wonderful it was to stay there."
