We booked next years vacation at Safe Haven before we left there. Dave and Deborah and their son Mitchell are wonderful hosts. They took a real interest in us. Everything is first class and comforting. We loved the accomodations, camp fires, kayaks, paddle boats and slide and trampoline. We have told others about this resort since we have been back...

A big thank you to Dave a Deborah for helping make our vacation one of the best we have ever had. We can't say enough about our stay at Safe Haven Cottage and Resort.

I can't speak highly enough of this amazing little cottage resort and it's fantastic owners. We have two young kids (ages 3 and 1) so we were looking for a cottage resort that had a sandy safe beach area where our kids could play, along with other activities. With the kayaks, slide, trampoline, play structure, bonfire pit, and crafts cabin... More

Lovely newly renovated cottage resort. We stayed in cottage #3. It was very clean inside - no spiderwebs or creepy crawlies in sight! It has 2 bedrooms, was a bit tight for two couples but would be fine for a family with young kids. Property is nice and well kept. Beach area is great, lots of water activities included (canoe,...

The Lloyd Family have completely renovated this traditional lakeside cottage resort into a beautiful year round Best Kept Secret in the Highlands. The individual cottages all very comfortable, tastefully decorated, immaculate grounds and waterfront, a PERFECT small resort to host a Corporate Retreat, Family Reunion, Special Event or a romantic getaway. GREAT value for money. Guests from all over the... More

My boyfriend and I spent a few days here with his family to relax and unwind from stressful city life. Cottage 7 was great with everything you needed to make a lovely dinner and unwind.

Thank you to the lovely hosts Dave & Deborah. My daughter & I stayed in the Studio cabin #8 - it's perfect for two. We only had an opportunity for a one-night stay but can easily see whiling away a week in their piece of paradise. Very clean facilities, lots of recreational toys on the beach (kayak/paddle brds etc), plenty... More

Ended up being overcharged, paying more than the list price that I was quoted on Booking.com. This is a little annoying as there was no reason given for these charges, and we left the room immaculate upon checkout. We were not notified that we would be paying more than our reservation on Booking.com. Thus, an otherwise great time at Safe... More

Dear Kenneth I want you to know that I have never met you and you seem to have the wrong resort. I am leaving this note so that others reading it before I report it to Trip Advisor will know this is definitely not our resort. Thank you Deborah, David and Mitchell More

I stay at the "beach house" which is the cabin right in front of the lake. The cabin was renovated, decorated in good taste, and extremely cozy. The guests were very warm and friendly people but were also aware of giving their guests privacy. Debora and Dave made us feel right at home. And the location couldn't be more perfect.... More
