  • Great home base


    We went up north for a little getaway. Used the cottage as a home base to do local activities.

    We were a group of 2 families and we had 5 kids with us. The loft area was perfect for them. The Kids: 12-16 y.o. all enjoyed the pool at the clubhouse. Need to bring your own towels to the pool.

    We would stay here again in the future.
