Thank you for having us in your beautiful cottage. We are especially grateful that we could bring all canine companions. The shallow water and sandy beach was a wonderful surprise, the kids loved it. And the sunny dock and pedal boat got a bit of use. It was a great way to end the summer and spend time together – relaxing, playing games, reading, and enjoying the outdoors. It was particularly meaningful as my dad passed away a few weeks ago, so the cottage allowed my mom to get away and spend time with us. All the best, Kaela, Marianne, Reid and Noelle (+ Yalda + Holly)

John and Florence. Thank you for having us back again! We have been excieted about staying since we booked! We had yet another fabulous time here at your cottage home! All your little and big upgrades have been wonderful. This cottage continues to house everything we need in creating lasting memories. My husband and boys LOVE the fishing. My husband caught a 21 inch large mouth bass last evening!! I myself loved sitting on the dock reading! Such a beautiful view. Thank you so much for opening up your home yet again. I hope you know how much your generosity is appreciated in letting people make lasting memories here. We truly hope you are renting again next summer!! Have a wonderful stay if this is your first time, you won’t be disappointed. Thank you again!!! Jennifer, Glen, Charlie, Jack

Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience at your cottage. The cottage is cute and comfortable, the lake is quiet and so refreshing and the selection of water crafts were so enjoyable. We loved the deck outdoor space and the swing chair was a crowd favorite. The kids all had a blast and the adults enjoyed some relaxation. The only thing that would have made it more awesome according to our 6 year old would be a tree house with a slide into the lake 🙂 Michelle, Justine, Raiden, Jazz, Mackayla, Marleigh

Best Beachfront

This wonderful family cottage provides convenience as well as a peaceful retreat and a place to play. The beach is one of the best in cottage-land, and the dock and watercraft make the lake accessible for lots of fun. Fishing too, if that’s your thing. Even our six-year-old was able to learn how to paddle the pontoon kayak. The cottage itself is well-equipped with everything you’d need in a kitchen…. BBQ utensils, Tupperware, cling wrap, teas, dishwasher, and the fanciest toaster I’ve ever seen! Bedrooms are supplied with luxury bedding and towels for inside & out. The bunkie provides sleeping quarters or a comfortable respite for secluded downtime. Never fear if it’s a rainy day or if you just need some a change of pace. The cottage has a supply of books, DVDs, games, and puzzles to occupy kids of a variety of ages. Wifi works well too. We recommend this cottage without reservation – an ideal spot for a vacation.

Florence and John, Thank you for having us in your lovely cottage. We had a great time, collecting new beautiful memories! It was a very special week for me as my eldest is going away to her university for her 1st year of studies. Your place is amazing, warm and homey. We had a lot of fun exploring the lake, playing games and watching some movies! Thank you. Beata with Family

Florence and John, Thank you for the opportunity to stay at your lovely and very cozy cottage! We enjoyed the amazing views and sunsets, and especially loved seeing and hearing the family of loons. We took a hike to Baumheur Lake and were lucky enough to see 2 Great Horned Owls on our way! The sand and the lake were also fantastic! One day my son caught 7 fish. Over the days we caught Sunfish, Rock Head, Perch and Smallmouth Bass. The week was a blast! Thank you. Eric, Sava, Iljia and Maeby

John and Florence, Thank you for sharing your wonderful cottage with us. We appreciate all of the thought, care, and work you have put into making this a warm, welcoming vacation place. We loved your decorations inside the cottage and all the beautiful and useful spaces outside on the deck, dock, and camp fire pit. We enjoyed exploring the lake with your water crafts, especially the paddle board that we all tried for the first time. We spent many wonderful hours sitting on the dock enjoying the beautiful view, swimming and boating. The loons were amazing to see and hear. Thank you for the beautiful memories. Sincerely, Debbie, Rob, Racheal, Ryan, Brent and Kasey

This cottage is absolutely perfect for a small group/family. My family (with 2 small children) and I recently stayed and had the most amazing time! The cottage and property were extremely well taken care of! The view and sun exposure was beautiful with sun from about 11 to 7pm on the deck. A perfect sandy entrance for the kids and the water was shallow which made for warm and safe waters. Lots of comfortable sitting/lounging areas/chairs. Three water craft options which we all loved trying, was a big bonus! The lake was quiet with minimal boats. Good spacing in between cottages allowed for excellent privacy. Fishing was awesome as we all caught several large bass! Many activity options near by. Overall this cottage was everything we were wanting in a family get away! We felt very comfortable and truly enjoyed our entire time here. We would do anything to go back again next year!! Highly recommend! Thanks to the owners and CLRM for a wonderful vacation!!
Beautiful week!

We enjoyed our stay! We shared memories with our granddaughter and son. The loons provide plenty of entertainment with their mournful calls. Accommodation are great!
