Peaceful Getaway

We rented a cottage for 3 nights over the 2019 holiday season. The cottage was perfect - comfortable beds, well decorated, warm, and well stocked with all the essentials. The staff were really friendly and helpful, and the food was quite good. Lots of fun activities to do around the property.

Cottage was old and tired.....

We rented cottage 3A for 3 nights over Christmas 2019. The pictures online show a lovely cottage with an amazing fireplace.....ya.. not so much. This cottage needs a lot of updating. The fireplace worked, but the safety screening was falling apart. It was a lot smaller than pictured for sure. The kitchen is totally outdated with the bare minimum items you would want in a kitchen. Utensils were all mismatched and hardly any small spoons, no measuring cup, one HUGE cast iron frying pan. The fridge was so old and dirty on the outside. The bathroom was nice, but no heat...so it was always cold regardless if you kept the door open or not. The carpeting... yuk...it was hideous. The bedrooms were very nice and comfortable, but if you wanted an extra blanket? Good luck with that one....there were none. For $75.00 we paid to have a Christmas Tree put into the cottage for our arrival...we packed our decorations and I was so excited for this........and so let down. $75.00 for a Charlie Brown Tree.... very disappointing for sure. Overall... it was ok.......but we won't be returning to this resort.
