My family just returned from a nine night stay at the cottage resort. We stayed in cottage #10. My family consists of me, my husband, 9 year old daughter and 6 year old son.
First the positive aspects. The cottage was clean and recently updated. Small but cozy. The beds were comfortable. Private dock with shallow water which was good for swimming with the kids. Beach toys at the beach to play with also. A fire pit for roasting marshmellows which we did everynight. The view was incredible!!!! The view is the best part of staying here.
Now the negatives. As a previous reviewer mentioned, the grounds were very disappointing. There is a difference between natural and unkept. This resort was unkept. Driving into the resort area, you are greeted by a dilapitated caretakers house, broken canoe, broken rowboat and the garbage shed. The basketball court and horseshoe pit are overgrown with weeds. Basically, they are unusable. The moose "lounge" is in the basement of the caretakers house. It smelled musty and mildewy. It was FILTHY. Layers of dust on the ping pong table. Pool table broken. Old games. My children didn't mind but I was not impressed. Not what I was expecting. The beach was very small. Not much room for more than 1 or 2 families to enjoy. No laundry facilities. I knew this beforehand but it would have been appreciated. The cottages are small which might bother some.
Overall, our stay was ok. We made the most of what was offered and also found plenty to do in the surrounding area. I feel it is overpriced for what was offered. For a winter stay or a stay without children where the grounds would not be used, I would possibly recommend this resort. Better upkeep, a bigger beach, and laundry facilities might tempt me to come back. Without those things, we will not be returning. However, I will miss the view!
