Extremely well set up with the extra touches of books and puzzles. Very clean and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone staying in the area. Loved the whole experience.

The cottage was very neat and tidy and had everything we needed to have an enjoyable stay. Unfortunately we had a medical emergency and had to shorten our stay but the owners were very understanding and other people in the area were very helpful. I would highly recommend this cottage.
Graeme Andrew
Fantastic cabin / home. Everything you you could expect in this wilderness location. Arrived on a cold rainy evening but had the wood fire burning in no time and woke up to a beautiful morning. Perfect retreat in a perfect location... thanks so much!
