Position Perfect! There are certain things I look for when renting a holiday home - Clean House Decent bathrooms Comfortable Beds Space for cars and a boat Flat lawn for kids to run around on Outdoor areas to BBQ, sit in the sun and watch the world go by Decent kitchen Fire Place if needed Good size Tv for evening movies Unlimited internet and Easy access to the lake for swimming, kayaking, and boating. It may seem like a lot but Hermoine's cottage has it all. We enjoy staying there every year in January and have a great time. I would highly recommend this property for those who want flat access to the lake without crossing roads. It is pretty at any time of year and suits either 1 or 2 families. We can't wait to come back soon.

Response from Owner
Hi Kim and Linda, Thank you so very much for your fulsome feedback just posted on the holiday homes site! We really appreciate it and it goes without saying , we hope you'll both keep coming back to Hermione Cottage for many years to come. We hope the year is going well for you both and you're enjoying it in good health too. We've just returned home after 4 days at the lake and have been busy at the cottage attending to maintenance and transforming the roadside of the section (with Chris Hanson's help on digger) modifying the garden and extending the lawn. We've also had a new ceramic cooktop installed . A bit of maintenance at our place too, of course and so we may just return next week for a few days relaxation this time after completing the tasks that didn't quite get ticked off. The colours at the lake are blazing with autumn just now and a couple of cloudless days saw them contrasting so dramatically with the blue….just beautiful! Again, special thanks for your feedback as the top echelon of "the Hermione Family". Kind regards Jennifer and Dean.
